    Hi Denys…

    Re Man City:

    OK it was 20 years ago but Criag Wilson did write  this and a few others on them back in 04/05.

    Manchester City

    For 1948 read 1977
    And so many years in
    Between and betwixt
    Manchester United
    The 20th century
    Footballing National Anthem
    Yesterday FA Cup winners
    Legendary personified
    In a million lines
    Of literary […]

    Man City won the Premier League,
    Their fourth one in a row!
    And they have won much more besides,
    From strength to strength they go.

    But judging by this dear website,
    The world would hardly know it. […]

    GLASGOW DERBY

    In Paradise where passions blaze
    Two Titans clash on football’s stage
    Celtic, bold in Hoops of green
    The Rangers, white with fear of the unforeseen

    The stage was set, the air electric
    Fans in song, emotions hectic
    Celtic’s side, a glaring pride
    Puffed-out chests they cannot hide

    Whistle blows the games began
    Fierce battle, is…[Read more]

    JOE HART

    Ourselves Alone, bold and green,
    Stands a man of steel, a goalkeeper supreme,
    Joe Hart, his name echoes through the roar,
    In the heart of the faithful, forevermore.

    From England’s shores, your journey began,
    To Glasgow’s Paradise, as our anchorman
    With gloves of grace and courage unbound,
    You guard the goal, where dreams are f…[Read more]

    SCOTTISH CUP FINAL ‘24

    25th of May, the stage is set,
    Celtic v The Rangers, a battle none forget.
    Scottish Cup Final, hearts are pounding
    Hampden Park, atmosphere astounding

    Celtic in green, their spirits high,
    Underdogs in fear, silence does not lie
    Unbound rivalry, fierce and grand,
    Two forces proudly do stand.

    The fans, a sea of blue and g…[Read more]

    Hey Potch!

    Howdy pardner….
    Come and join us, for a scotch
    as we review the season:
    there is no reason
    for us to be happy
    so we’ll make this snappy….

    we failed to notch
    any home runs
    we did not win […]

    So Marvin Gaye heard
    It on the grapevine
    The rumour mill is
    Buzzing frantically
    VAR could be binned
    Oh glory, glory glory
    So football finally
    Comes to its senses
    And not before time
    Various parts of […]

    We knew it would come down
    To this day,
    This penultimate weekend
    The final drum rolls
    That Premier League percussion
    Rumbling across the days
    Of Sabbath and rest
    A thrilling frisson
    Of activity, […]

    So it’s farewell David Moyes
    It was the engagement party
    Before the wedding
    The noisy introduction
    Before the main event
    When Manuel left in
    A solemn slump
    Relegation loomed
    Moyes stood by the […]

    Well another season is over
    that seemed to go really quick,
    when one minute you’re on a high
    and another left feeling sick.
    Like that match at Wembley
    with a sea of sky blue,
    if not for a dodgy VAR […]

    Cesar Luis Menotti
    Face like a tombstone
    With inscriptions of
    Pain, hurt, almost
    Rejection
    Carved with the first
    Bold letterings of despair
    Never really understood
    Today we mourn his death
    A man eaten […]

    So Ipswich Town are back
    In the Premier League
    Boiling furnace
    Let’s go crazy in the fenlands
    It’s been simply ages
    Since the agricultural heartlands
    Of Suffolk witnessed
    Seasonal harvests of goals
    And […]

    some still ‘new’ to little Forest Green
    might not have known him or the legend he’s been
    he often came out with “truthfully” a lot
    but Bob Hunt gave it out with all he’d got
    sometimes in a match you were ne […]

    Hi Denys,

    Yes Richard Williams you’re a brilliant wordsmith, my friend. When I first saw your football poetry I thought it was the superb Guardian sports and music writer. I once had the honour of sitting next […]

    So there you were on the brink
    Of adolescence
    Voice finally broken
    Hormones in disarray
    Struggling with the
    Realisation that school
    Had offered nothing
    Of any note or substance
    It was the last game
    Of […]

    Nice work, Joe. You were quick off the mark with that! Good one from Richard Williams too I see.

    We don’t need no FA Cup replays
    We don’t need no extra games
    No lower league teams in the quarters
    FA, screw those clubs below
    Hey, FA, screw them clubs below
    All in all, they’re just a nothing club that c […]

    Oh how we’ll miss
    The continuous sequence
    Of FA Cup replay after replay
    More and more carbon footprints
    The same old song
    Played over and over again
    No resolution, no clarity
    Indecision until the
