I so want to split this poem into two verses!
True story: Hull City is the only club name in the Football League where one cannot colour in an “enclosed loop” in one of the letters. Yet another reason for it to keep its name!

I’ve tagged this poem as “Nostalgia” but wish I didn’t have to.
What a depressing situation. So far, I’ve avoided exposing my son to the professional game in any shape or form – and now I have the perfect reason for things to stay that way.

I really like this poem. So many great phrases: “striped and manicured”, “a crowd of heads go drooping”, “and maintain home advantage”, “when Mum blew for dinner”. Much appreciated! Thank you.

Such great words Ray. So evocative of that time of innocence Kepp on mate. More please. It will be under the Nostaglia section too.

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…
