    What a farce
    I’ll have to pass – at any deep rooted analysis
    Prorogation? Purely Parliamentary paralysis.
    Has Bojo lost his mojo?
    Leading us unto Brexit?
    Surely a simple call of ”legs it!”
    To over-ride the R […]

    We bought you in the Window
    and we got you on the cheap,
    just after we let Luis go
    (grown men were seen to weep).

    You’re not his twin, or next of kin,
    (was Brendan half asleep?)
    and who but him would t […]

    A weekend like so many
    We plan them all life long
    We sit or stand as football fans
    In silence or in song
    And something seems to join us
    Our work is left behind
    A few hours at the football
    With winning on […]

    Aw c’mon Ref
    I never touched him.
    He just tripped
    Over his own feet.

    I was nowhere near him
    He was going that fast,
    You know his reputation,
    He’s good.

    And it’s raining,
    The grass is slipp […]

    What a day for the Whites
    we’ve almost signed a team
    Nine new players signed today
    This week seems like a dream
    Football Ventures took us over
    what more could we ask
    If we are to Survive in division o […]

    Football is flesh and blood
    love and lies and truth
    betrayal sadness joy and faith
    wit wisdom and idiocy of
    the indelible comradeship
    the principles and disciplines
    the traps tropes and temptations
    of a […]

    When I am an old woman, I am going to wear purple
    In the name of rock and roll God bless my rebel soul
    I will learn to play guitar, and who cares if I’m out of tune

    Because I’m in step not out of time, and […]

    In goal there’s Nicko as steady as stone
    Swapped blue for white and found a new home
    Right back is Yatesy a machine scoring goals
    In the Cup he was magic St Yates Day now known!

    From the youth ranks M […]

    I really, really wish I’d thought of that closing line!

    Absolute classic!

    Football poems in muddy boots
    Those heroic couplets with chalk down the verbs
    Them epics that flew off the wings of metaphors
    Roared on by the mythic terrace
    In boss ghazals
    Syllables for goalposts
    iambs to […]

    Expulsion –
    Based not on lack of points
    But too many points of failure

  • Profile picture of Sharon Jones

    As soon as you’re born you’ve chosen your club
    And you go with your Dad meet your mates at the pub
    And you give it your heart and your soul and your love
    Working class football is something to be
    Agents l […]

    “when the pupil is ready, the teacher appears”

    I watch my son
    Direct the traffic around him
    The rock at the back
    The talisman throughout
    The prophet
    The driver
    The one who blocks, when danger sha […]

    Ali Turganbekov, from Kazakhstan
    This young boy
    With his beautiful shining glorious smile
    Won the Super Cup last night
    And proves that however we walk
    Wherever the path leads
    Whatever the obstacles
    No […]

    Super Cup Final 2019
    Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea – Reds win 5-4 on penalties

    Chelsea were the tougher team to beat
    Lampard’s men take the lead through Giroud
    The Reds go full steam and raise the heat

    The poetry in motion
    Upon a football pitch
    Whence a Dalglish angles punctuates
    The essential wisdom
    And simplicity of a game
    Thus spake Shankly, Busby, Stein
    Scottish Steel hewn from the
    Collective nouns […]

    man kicks ball
    ball beats goalkeeper
    man gets paid £100,000
    this week
    and next week
    and next week
    as do
    his fellow ball kickers

    players prosper
    agents prosper
    football clubs die

    I weep for football

    I weep for football

    Football is dying, the game’s lost the plot
    The powers that be? They care not a jot
    The Premier League – a Millionaire’s Row
    The seventy-two left just have to kow tow.
    The small clubs […]
