    still swapping shirts with Willie the Shake
    taught us words can make the heart ache
    showed us life is just a stage
    where we run and strive and guage
    this Peoples’ Game that carries on
    until the day that we […]

    I for one will miss

    paper tickets for the match

    when they scan my eyes

    Half as nice
    As watching Eden scoring thrice
    Who needs paradise?
    Seeing Eden net thrice?

    Peace.

    oh the sordid satire of screaming sinew!
    and the blistering bantz of boots belying “buy new”

    We see and yet don’t comprehend
    how the ability to defend
    successfully stymies
    all the style and substance
    of the natural artists;

    They, with extravagant brushstrokes
    wish only to depict the valiant and v […]

    I recall that Saturday like yesterday
    a steaming summer
    our first home game in ‘58
    excitement
    and childlike expectation in the air
    August in London and sweltering
    “stand clear of the doors!” “wear […]

    PayByPhone put me in the West Stand
    I spied my PE teacher in town
    Chris Kinnear and Dover would
    Leave Brisbane Road with a frown

    A blitz sends The Whites home empty
    McAnuff put the O’s clear
    The skipper h […]

    Ianthe Exall published a poem on the site Football Poets 4 weeks ago

    The Wolves emerged from the undergrowth
    And stood on the lush green field.
    The pack was so focussed on what lay ahead,
    In their minds it was done, signed and sealed.
    Further down through the woodlands, the […]

    everything I ever did
    couldn’t keep emotions hid
    back when I was just a kid
    ev’ry time we’d play
    captured by a moving ball
    from the time when I was small
    have I really changed at all ?
    waiting for the day […]

    an august goal

    I have blood that boils
    with every contentious decision
    I have blood that freezes
    when I need net-busting precision
    I have blood that curdles
    with every demeaning debacle
    I have blood that spills […]

    Nat Lofthouse
    Bolton Wanderers
    Patron saint
    Of aerial combat
    His tireless lion heart
    Pursued lost causes
    With the passion of St. Jude
    And gave them all a home.

    Bakayoko sent to Coventry!
    Oh yes, my dream has come true
    For I hate to see any waster
    Turning out in my beloved Royal Blue

    Alas and alack
    It turns out to be Walsall’s Amadou
    And not our Tiemou s […]

    Peeling spuds, washing glasses
    Using knives n forks, serviettes an plates
    Instead of…greasy mitts in a chicken box,

    Quaffing Stella by the telly with his mat […]

    blank green canvas big clean slate

    keep on longing live the dream

    Hi Crispin,

    Many thanks for that. I’ve actually changed it back because I feel the more ridiculous it looks, the more Ogden Nash it is! My own personal choice, others may disagree. But I appreciate the thought. Cheers
