    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

    Whenever the World Cup comes around, you can bet your bottom dollar that many’ll
    Plump for Brazil in this super-hyped, global quadrennial,
    Supposedly playing their football with an infectious j […]

    Sorry everyone. Away on holidays and not very good at the computer stuff anyway.

    I had thought I was commenting on Verse 2, Lines 3 and 4. The whole poem is done in rhyming couplets – I was merely commenting on […]

    Captain hollered, “Kev!
    Fella’s hurted his leg*
    Need you to take his place, and go in goal”?
    Pulling on the goalies top,
    A hurried sign of the cross
    I ran out with the chaps to face our foe.

    Battered, […]

    A is for Albion. The boys done us proud. Laud ‘em out loud.
    B is for Brexit. No mention, amongst the tension, until of course, Brazil exit early. Spot the surly.
    C is for Charades (see VAR). Replaces the i […]

    We’ve criss-crossed the country
    taken Steppes small and large
    travelled alone or in convoys
    by plane, train or barge

    first intentions were
    that we weren’t to get lost
    but as we familiarised on the jou […]

    Runners up, yet
    Croatia proud as can be
    Gave it their all

    Third or fourth
    Does it really matter?
    Should it matter?
    For there is no head-upon-a-platter
    For failure

    Then what of the prize money?
    I’m not being funny
    But there is only 2 million FIFA shekels
    In t […]

    Corner kick in his mind
    Eyeballs the monitor behind
    Before racing back on to the field…
    Vlad appears on the miniature screen
    Snarling, broody like, mean,
    “Right sunbeam this here’s the deal…

    Your […]

    France 4-2 Croatia

    spoiling things again
    VAR the villain here
    on this final night

    never lying down
    oh how brave Croatia fought
    when injustice reigned

    never at their best
    once again Les Bleus […]

    VAR
    Robs HVR
    Outplayed France win The World Cup
    I louldly explete…”Griezmann! You no-good…….cheat”
    At his theatrics performed for the first
    Les Bleus second is worse
    Even with VAR, a VAR*
    Still […]

    Twas France who struck gold first
    Sucker own goal by Mandzukic

    I started as the Croatian fan in Paris
    but became close with the Dubliners
    of James Joyce, Gandhi

    or magistrated at Oxford

    when we pause we know
    like some epic video
    we have far to go

    games like this are hard
    damage limitation time
    with a stronger foe

    meaningless to some
    I know we’d have taken fourth
    at the very […]

    Belgium 2-0 England

    Thomas Meunier put Belgium ahead
    Sliding in ahead of Danny Rose
    With only a mere four minutes in
    It seemed the whole team had froze

    England had chances to square
    Alderweireld clears […]

    Belgium’s best side for ages land third place
    “It’s Coming Home”, Ingerland a creditable fourth
    ITV – for me – hands down land the punditry crown
    For the match of the tournament thus far…I’d say
    …Keano […]
