    new season again
    sweet success or dreaded drop
    what will this one bring ?

    Summer days still here
    football’s back with faces new
    same old battles too

    sweep the past away
    start that mighty push again […]

    I remember the first time I watched doubles at tennis
    it was too fast
    points over too quick and low on rallies and drama
    but i got into it and stuck with it and now I love it
    just like all those […]

    It could have been so different
    It could have gone our way on the night
    but still in the hindsight of reflection
    a season spent punching above our weight
    and a season lived without fear
    is something
    to […]

    “the whole stand is on fire” he cried upon my radio
    but how it started to this day we still may never know
    and who here can imagine the fear the heat the pain
    but pray that such a day as this will never daw […]

    tears still fill our eyes
    for those souls lost needlessly
    on this very day ~

    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…

    how did we manage how did we get by
    how did we exist as fans you and I
    how did we do it how did we survive

    twenty five years ago right across the land
    what was it […]

    car or bus or coach or train
    climbing up the hill again
    in the howling wind and rain
    ev’ry time the same
    ev’ry single step you take
    premonitions that you make
    habits that you never break
    going to the […]

    so much talent taken
    all the broken dreams
    all the hopes you harbour
    for your chosen team
    from the very moment
    you first kicked a ball
    from the time you start to climb
    longing for it all
    so much promise […]

    Football is our saving grace
    90 minutes reliving a childhood long melted into the past
    But lingers, for what are we but children
    Divisively spiritual and […]

    one Christmas in the trenches
    they stood in mud and sand
    their loved ones and their football
    a distant far off land –
    the snow lay thick as thick could be
    a bitter chill did spread
    behind the sand bags and t […]
