    We’re all going on a summer holiday
    The football season has begun
    It’s the Milk-League-Carling-EFL Cup
    The chance for a decent cup run

    Norwich City played pretty well
    Scoring three goals in the first […]

    In summer, a fan keeps you warm
    A match, lights your barbecue
    The ground is where you plant vegetables
    The spot, is on your face, it grew

    The ball, requires a DJ
    A net, to protect soft fruit
    Summer […]

    If our only injury is a troublesome hamstring
    The only crisis is no-one playing on the wing
    If the only shock is an early straight red card
    Or they equalise ‘cos your keepers caught off guard

    If the worst […]

    S B Ingle published a poem on the site Football Poets 1 year ago

    In the 70’s you used to hear them sing
    “We are the Barclay Boot Boys”
    Added atmosphere that away fans would bring
    Tribal singing was one of footballs greatest joys

    We got older, they changed the ground
    We […]

    Isn’t it good to be back home
    Fresh green pitch on which to draw out our season
    and maybe even win sometimes
    Scan the ground looking for changes
    Greet all the old faces and a few strangers
    A new rotating big […]

    I know I’ll feel this feeling
    until the end of time
    It’s not easy to keep believing
    but they’re my team, always mine

    Only other fans understand the meaning
    of games won, drawn or lost
    How high the highs and so […]

    If a picture paints a thousand words
    This almost pencilled in a draw
    A worthy performance brushed aside
    As we did our best to score

    Chalk it up to experience
    A gutsy defeat will have to do
    Almost got a hard […]

    He watched us lose, he watched us win
    Supported us through thick and thin
    Enjoyed the wins, shrugged off defeat
    Enjoyed his season ticket seat

    One of us, he loved the game
    Whatever the score, he sang our City […]

    As many of you will know
    Norfolk is a long way from anywhere
    Norwich City were thirty years away from Wembley
    Before beating Ipswich over two legs took us back there

    A Bank Holiday weekend, no question of what to […]

    It so often begins in childhood
    going with your dad, collecting autographs
    in teenage years you go with mates
    eating pies and drinking halves

    Then you meet your missus
    and find the grass isn’t greener
    It just […]

    When your team scores, it’s amazing
    We all know that surge of feeling
    When Ipswich equalised against us
    A fan punched right through his ceiling

    He tweeted to show the damage by his fist
    He could see the funny […]

    You had your Liver Birds
    We had Canaries
    You had The Beatles, Gerry & the Pacemakers
    The whole music scene in fact
    Including Cilla Black
    We had little transistor radios with a single earpiece
    To eavesdrop on your […]

    No last minute shopping
    shops are deserted
    no miles of brake lights
    all traffic diverted

    no glitter or sparkle
    no mince pies or mulled wine
    a global crowd watches
    sport in exotic climes

    no room for a turkey
    in […]

    “It’s a bad time to concede a goal”
    Said when we go down early doors
    If we take the lead from the kick-off
    “Oh no -its too early to score”

    “Two nil is a dangerous score”
    Not content with being ahead
    Let’s hope […]

    When I was a kid
    ‘Spot the Ball’ was a grainy black and white photograph
    And you had to indicate with a cross
    Where you thought the ball was

    Picture the scene
    After extra time, it went to pens
    And players had to […]

    Our game has changed but we still go
    In search of good times, like lost souls
    Ghosts looking for their former home
    unrequited love is all we know

    Born in Norwich, I’ve supported Norwich
    as a kid, teen adult – […]

    I’m old enough to remember when the Pink Un was pink
    Printed on paper, on match day, in ink
    No radio coverage, no game on TV
    If you didn’t go to the match, you waited, like me

    If you couldn’t get to the ground to […]

    Just a plain, hard plastic seat
    Flat clean concrete to stand my feet
    Toilets with paper in endless rolls
    Attacking football and scores of goals

    A short person sat in front so I can see
    Half-time break with a […]

    James Alexander Gordon

    We all know the name
    Voice instantly recognised
    We don’t know the man
    But he’s part of our lives

    Classified football results
    Since nineteen seventy four
    He reads the first half of the […]
