Liverpool 1-0 Wolves
It was Lallana’s collar bone
Cue mayhem in the Red zone
Mane slots past Patricio
Until VAR halts the flow
Goal stands the replay showed
Mok and Mosh rock the Anfield Road
Neto a […]

Leicester 0-4 Liverpool
Could’ve been two in the first minute
Then Firmino caught them cold
Dropping the ball on a sixpence
Was Trent Alexander-Arnold
Counter attack and a penalty
Soyuncu’s arm fro […]

Tall and elegant of posture
With a warm, endearing smile
He’d materialize into the box
In his own enduring style
Everywhere he went
As Hammer, Spur, Canary
He was every fan’s favourite
Ghosting past the […]

I loved all Mishi’s poems!
His passion shone through so brightly.
Every club needs a Mishi.
God Rest His Soul.

Straight up I expected to be behind
When I pressed Red Button on T.V
Of late our defence, not to be unkind
Seems as resolute as a sieve.
Listening to JJ in the Five Live studio
Passing comment on the […]

Mishi was a one-off a real true fan
leaves a huge gap where he always used to stand
held his club like a jewel in his hand
followed them the way few could ever understand
poured out his feelings at the […]

People say if they cut me
I’d bleed Pink and Blue
I hate to disappoint
But it simply ain’t true.
I’m as ordin […]

They said we were ungrateful
When we sacked our Portuguese.
It wasn’t nothing personal –
He’d brought us to our knees.
His string of poor results
Had us reaching for the Valium,
So we showed him where […]

Liverpool 1-0 Flamengo (AET)
In Madrid it was Spurs
Chelsea in Istanbul
In Doha we saw off Flamengo
That is quite the bagful
It was Bobby broke the stalemate
For Jurgen the big rebel
And lead the first […]

Slow to start but tension mounts,
rippling around mister somethings
dodging wives, unlikely couples
high in the stands and
usual suspects waving.
Some leer at cameras. No one wins.

Sir John Moores appointed
talk to Ancelotti
Are we coming through
the ETERNAL RETURN
Is it the same momentous event ?
Is it the same developement ?

whatever happened to hitching?
and can you remember when kids would hitch home for Christmas
to waiting parents on frosty December mornings?
a different world then – hap-less map-less and sat-navless

It was the perfect present,
Charles Buchan’s Football Monthly Annual,
A book that took me instantly back
To a brown linoleum floor
And a hot fire cold room winter,
Studying a dog eared package
Of 5 year o […]

Hi Denys, it’s great to have another Toffee posting on Footy Poets. I haven’t contributed for some time, but if you click my name you’ll find some Everton poems going back several years.
Yes, now we’re all made up about the Chelsea result. And the return of the team spirit. And the two strikers formation.

Thank you Al and Welcome to Football Poets..
Too often in the shadow and wake of Hillsborough, Bradford and Heysel, your powerful and emotive lines remind us of a tragic day when 66 died and many more were injured at Ibrox .
