    I’m pacing the floor
    cos I don’t know the score
    and I’m trying to avoid
    how they deployed
    I’ve turned off my phone
    with its certain ringtone *

    and all because….

    It’s FA Cup Final day
    and my team are […]

    Thanks Peter.

    Quality Bouts Rimes!

    I missed that news item – pity for the town.

    I must admit I never went to watch them – we were only ever there in the close season.

    But we did spend many quality family […]

    I cannot speak of other hearts
    The tears the joys the loss
    I cannot name the unknown ones
    Nor count the cost
    What is gone the sights the smells
    The sounds that taste forgot
    The meek the mild the often […]

    I heard them curse the lack of silverware,
    those diehard fans from lonely Ross-on- Wye,
    still yearning hopelessly for football’s heir.

    I gazed upon the concrete bridge to Skye,
    that distant island ‘ […]

    Lovely internal rhymes there Crispin. And I agree very much with the sentiment, although I reckon there’s plenty of room for improvement!!

    Another day of destiny
    Here comes deja vu
    Is your glass half full or empty
    Depends on your point of view.
    Third consecutive play-off final
    But the first at home
    If you can really call it that
    For to Tooting […]

    I see it in Monet
    with his haystacks
    and Rouen Cathedral

    I see it in Hokusai
    with his 36 views
    of Mount Fuji

    I see it in the curious cut-outs
    of a demiurgic Matisse

    “series”

    repetition – but w […]

    I have lived out my life drenched in football
    By the games that the Reds won or lost
    And I have valued those days of my youth
    But I have never measured the cost
    I had long thought the butterflies flown […]

    there are loyal collectors of programmes
    whose attics and boxes contain
    all expertly wrapped and religiously mapped
    a record of many a game
    but they’re calling for clubs to think over
    just what is the p […]

    Half a mile from the station
    A delight of a ground
    Half decent programme
    Admission just five pound.
    Out of my local area
    Jumped on a train
    Headed for Risborough Rangers
    No I’m not insane!
    A sun setting […]

    Emdad,

    thanks for sharing!

    I’m jealous!

    It made me lookup google maps straight away to trace your journey.

    for all the coaching, I’m sure you got just as much out of the trip as your hosts did.

    Human Relief All Stars
    Took a short hop to Tamale
    After a long haul flight to Accra
    To the aroma of the Kukuo bakery

    First stop is Kpaling
    An encounter so very brief
    Honoured by the locals
    We met the […]

    Give us back footballers of a different breed
    High flying skills aye, but take back the greed
    Wearing the shirt for the pride not the fame
    Kids out on the parks not a PlayStation game
    We reclaim our clubs […]

    I jog because….
    I just about can
    even though my muscles mutter obscenities at me
    and extremities tingle
    as the pain of sciatica and arthritis mingle
    and internal organs spout the bleedin’ obvious – […]

    Watching MotD last night
    (One minus Lineker, so a bit of alright)
    It suddenly struck during viewing
    This managerial lark is a shoo in
    If one is subtle, and one’s timing is right?

    Forget die ausreden b […]
