    Never forgotten…
    even 30 years to the day
    all those 97 souls
    snatched, no longer to watch or play

    Never forgotten…
    even from continents away
    as I hark back in my mind
    with sheer and utter […]

    With their captain at the helm
    The Liverpool fans never worried
    For their hard-hitting number 4
    Was hewn from rock, as per Shankly.. “aye, quarried”

    They said that Merseyside mothers kept his picture on the […]

    tears still fill our eyes
    for those souls lost needlessly
    on this very day ~

    not just some hard man
    Tommy lived and loved to play

    Do you remember that lazy afternoon
    Back in August 1958?
    Well, I bloody well do mate.
    We were sitting on the bunker
    At the end of platform four,
    Just by the giant semaphore signal,
    When 5050 The Earl of St […]

    “Rip it up and start again, I said rip it up and start aah_gain!”

    So nice of Edwyn Collins and Orange Juice,
    To write a prescient song,
    About my poetic inability!

    He must have taken a look at my foo […]

    As a child I drew crowds; row upon row,
    fifteen thousand little circles for the fans,

     

    such a great line…bewcause we all did…and  golaposts  nets and floodlights too…

    As a child I drew crowds; row upon row,
    fifteen thousand little circles for the fans,
    some high in the stands, some arrayed on the Shelf
    cradled by that tight encircling wall

    BACK IN TIME DOWN WHITE HART LANE
    As a child I drew crowds; row upon row,
    fifteen thousand little circles for the fans,
    some high in the stands, some arrayed on the Shelf
    cradled by that tight encircling wall
    (I’m capturing White Hart Lane
    at the start of the Hunter Davies years)
    the groundlings penned behind a white perimeter fence,
    watching B…[Read more]

    how did we manage how did we get by
    how did we exist as fans you and I
    how did we do it how did we survive

    what was it […]

    John,

    absolutely fabulous!

    Poem & save!

    We got our first colour tv for that Mexico World Cup.

    an act of dissent
    meant
    disbarment
    to the bench
    while the stench
    of mutiny
    lingered

    Sarri fingered
    as dead man walking
    meanwhile Kepa?
    treated
    like a leper

    car or bus or coach or train
    climbing up the hill again
    in the howling wind and rain
    ev’ry time the same
    ev’ry single step you take
    premonitions that you make
    habits that you never break
    going to the […]
