    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 […]

    Football is mausoleum sans fans
    The stadiums mere hollow caverns of bricks and mortar
    An abyss of deathly silence
    And then on match day it’s sheer umbilical
    The very concrete quivers with excitement […]

    The beautiful feral wild creature that is the terrace,
    nothing like that swaying wall of unadulterated noise
    the big wide hungry heart that gives and gives again
    breathing life into the game

    And it’s not […]

    a painful defeat
    is like a heat-
    seeking-missile
    it follows you
    it tracks you
    it locks on….

    Great poem, Mr Dulwich   😉

     

    Being an ex-pat, I don’t get to many matches, but did get to first game of this season, Hampton & Richmond v Dartford. I love getting out to grass roots football.

     

    And being a p […]

    With silver bullets in his boots
    He gets the crowd up when he shoots
    He twists he spins he sways and swoops
    He’ll grab a brace of goals the noo!
    Along with Jackson, Clark, McConn
    You know he’ll score ano […]

    What a tremendous effort
    From the Atherton Collieries team
    The topping of another league
    Is every managers dream
    But this guys in a league of his own
    Michael Clegg you are a star
    You have those special qualities
    Which has taken your team this far

    Next season we’ll be watching
    With an extra intrigue
    As the Colls start a…[Read more]

    Football lives in our hearts, not our heads Crispin, and it nudges its space alongside our other more important loves.

    Love, that auld devil called football, is our respite, response and reason, and each page […]

    no-one can explain it
    no-one understands
    Sometimes it’s impossible
    and way out of your hands
    off somewhere or hard at work
    you had to wash your hair
    but ev’ry fan know how it feels
    when you can’t be th […]

    Thanks for those words of encouragement Crispin.

    We go to Lochgilphead Red Star Fc games here in Argyll, just a wee walk from our home.

    I always want Liverpool to win, club of my heart, but the prices priced me […]

    Like some lumberjack hipster
    From London’s gentrified East-end
    He entered the fray from the bench
    Stuck a swift deuce away
    Straight up saved the day
    Cynics amongst us enthused,
    (Me included to boot)
    Bout r […]

    Sublime Sharon..last verse sums it all up…what it is to follow footie at a much lower but still local level after maybe being spoilt for a lifetime…by our bigger and what we thought was our only […]

    We’re easily pleased us football fans
    We don’t dote on silver and gold
    Just a player who puts in a decent shift
    And every now and then a half decent goal

    We love the blokes who huff and puff around the pit […]

    I could have gone home after work
    Lazily watched DVD’s and stayed in
    But with Forest Hill Park playing Kent Football United
    That really would have been a sin.
    Forget that glorious English failure
    In the […]

    The last two lines are lines any fan can relate to Ron… :

    Then in through the turnstile, enjoying the sound
    of the crowd as it builds towards three.

     

    I still recall like yesterday, the day i was running a […]

    It’s got to be done, come rain, hail or sun,
    Before leaving home the last check –
    My favourite scarf (the old Demon one)
    Knotted secure round my neck.
    My right shoe on first, laced up with care
    just as when I […]

    In a pub – I occasionally frequent – t’other night
    No sooner had I stepped inside
    I heard – two usually charming – blue-rinses
    Having imbibed three or four Guinness’s
    Being told by the land-lord,
    “Any more […]

    I think we shoud have a whole section on Mohamed Salah’s hair…Emdad!

    I guess you have to win 4 or 5 nil in the first leg now…

    and Roma definitely  inspired Juve who in turn inspired Marseille and CSKA Moxcow..some nearly nearlies..
