    As the new season approaches
    There’s anticipation in the air
    Now we’re back in the big boy’s league
    The waiting’s more than we can bear.

    So many rival clubs are jealous
    Because we have owners with re […]

    They said we were ungrateful,
    When we sacked Allardyce.
    Well, truth be told, we can’t deny,
    It wasn’t very nice.

    But football is a business,
    For sentiment no place.
    So poor Big Sam, he had to […]

    Using knives n forks, serviettes an plates
    Instead of…greasy mitts in a chicken box,

    Hi Crispin,

    Many thanks for that. I’ve actually changed it back because I feel the more ridiculous it looks, the more Ogden Nash it is! My own personal choice, others may disagree. But I appreciate the thought. Cheers

    Sorry everyone. Away on holidays and not very good at the computer stuff anyway.

    Captain hollered, “Kev!
    Fella’s hurted his leg*
    Need you to take his place, and go in goal”?
    Pulling on the goalies top,
    A hurried sign of the cross
    I ran out with the chaps to face our foe.

    Battered, […]

    We’ve criss-crossed the country
    taken Steppes small and large

    by plane, train or barge

    but as we familiarised on the jou […]
