    back for one day
    to the ground on the hill
    careful and wary
    with Covid here still
    temp’rature testing
    out here on the street
    we stand in a line
    in our masks in the heat

    we’re grateful to be here
    this […]

    back on my own in the South Stand once more
    but where are my mates and the crowd like before?
    I’d love to stay but there’s no-one to ask
    up on the hill in my hat and my mask
    feel like a robber whose […]

    here in these times with the sadness we’ve seen
    just like we’re watching a film on a screen
    science or fiction it’s tricky to say
    feel like a child who can’t go out to play
    you say it’s easing and lockdown w […]

    football won’t feel right
    ‘til we get all fans on board….
    which could be tricky

    I know they’re cut outs
    even so shouldn’t they be
    two metres apart ?

    am I now the only one
    thinking this should not be done?
    common sense sometimes there’s none
    made behind closed doors

    all these lives that we have lost
    all theses bridges we have crossed
    let’s hope games […]

    I was twelve when you first made your debut
    on a long ago cold March day
    and I stood down the front in the Shed with my mates
    as we did ev’ry time in our way
    and we watched you as like a magician
    you would […]

    Wherever we find ourselves
    Life we know on hold
    Terraces we stood on closed
    Seats in stands lie cold
    Rituals on match days
    Little lost routines
    How they seem quite futile now
    In these current […]

    there are places where a coat of paint would do right
    you need thermals even in the August games
    the raffle can quite often be the highlight
    but something draws you back each time again
    the crowd is often […]
