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 laughed out loud!

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

So many great lines here Nicholas ..and a big welcome to Football Poets. Keep on and more please.
I’m really interstged to know where you live now…and which period you lived and played in – in S.Africa and where? I lived there during apartheid long before Mandela’s release – running a New Age clothing shop on Claremont Cape Town 1972-1979 (as you do!) Now I still perform poetry live and drum on the terraces with a New Age (Vegan) club in League Two (and the next village) Forest Green . Keep on my friend. C
