    Woohoo….sentiment shared Denys.

    I thought the huge No 3 on Chelsea’s new shirts strange enough.

    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 […]

    tennis balls ice cream vans football in the street

    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 […]

    sometimes we judge our players
    by the way that they behave
    a striker for his scoring
    and a keeper for his saves
    we even tag some heroes
    and one deserves that claim
    a man who didn’t just save goals […]

    they say that it’s impractical they say we’ve gotta go
    they say we really have to move but some of us say no
    and yes it needs improvements the parking and the ground
    but nothing is impossible that’s what […]

    if you were alive child woman or man
    you remember the day still
    like yesterday
    like Lennon like Kennedy
    or the day we landed on the moon
    the day we woke to realise
    we’d lost a football team

    that […]

    Mishi was a one-off a real true fan
    leaves a huge gap where he always used to stand
    held his club like a jewel in his hand
    followed them the way few could ever understand

    poured out his feelings at the […]

    I’d bleed Pink and Blue

    But it simply ain’t true.
