    He’s always feeling sick
    got pains in his head,
    constantly on edge
    nerves torn to a shred.
    His hair much greyer
    face ashen and pale,
    he’s smoking again
    drinking too much ale.
    He can’t get to sleep
    paces […]

    The truth we wanted, it was our demand.
    And justice its companion, hand in hand.
    The years rolled on, wasted with rage.
    Corruption and lies hogged centre stage.

    Eyes grew tired with grief, patience […]

    Yes. We played footy in the street, and Peter Lorimer (not me) broke the window-pane at number twenty-eight. Kenneth Wolstenholme was particularly impressed, and Leeds meet Chelsea in the semi-final.

    Under a canopy of unbroken cloud,
    across a junction over undropped kerbs
    with gates and hedges for goals
    and a wickedly uneven, improvised pitch,
    you appeared in an urban field of dreams
    arrayed on concrete […]

    A touching tribute to a quaint old ground, with its compact pitch and small white gable.

    It’s the FA People’s Cup,
    but who can understand
    this affliction in the sun?

    Fair weather to me is a bitter breeze,
    high winds and a heavy squall,
    ice patches on fourth generation
    artificial surfaces, […]

    Barry Hines’ story “A Kestrel for a Knave” was turned into a moving and powerful film. In one scene, the PE teacher (Brian Glover) intervenes in a muddy school game of football, takes the ball through, and […]

    Kun Aguero’s way of celebrating was to pretend to have a “punch-up” with the corner-flag.

    Hull City manager Brown had kept his side on the pitch at half-time in order to berate them publicly. In a later match, against Manchester City, the Hull goal celebration was to re-enact the scene, with one of the […]

    At the 1994 World Cup, Romario, Bebeto et al. pretended to rock a cradle, to celebrate a goal by Brazil.

    When Juergen Klinsmann came to Spurs, he had a reputation as a “diver.” Seeing the funny side, he celebrated his first Spurs goal with a huge parodic “dive.”

    1950s The Corinthian Casual approach
    A gentle trot
    Back to the centre spot
    In white and black
    With just a pat on the back

    1960s The Peter Osgood approach
    He gives a turn and a thump
    Then a punch and a […]
