    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 […]

    Survival

    People say if they cut me
    I’d bleed Pink and Blue
    I hate to disappoint
    But it simply ain’t true.
    I’m as ordin […]

    crucial in our finest hour

    whatever happened to hitching?
    and can you remember when kids would hitch home for Christmas
    to waiting parents on frosty December mornings?

    a different world then – hap-less map-less and sat-navless
    sussing […]

    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 […]

    there has to be a space there has to be a place
    for every single member of the human race
    staring at a problem that hasn’t gone away
    underneath the suface it’s lingering today
    kick it out.. ignore it but […]

    Thank you Al and Welcome to Football Poets..

    Too often in the shadow and wake of Hillsborough, Bradford and Heysel, your powerful and emotive lines remind us of a tragic day when 66 died and many more were […]

    it’s so hard to imagine now
    way way back in time
    the birth of little Forest Green
    in eighteen eighty nine
    the little hilltop village team
    whose changing hut was found
    behind the Jovial Forester
    a good […]

    It’s five to three on a Saturday
    The usual crowd wander in
    There’s a guy in a full kit beside me
    But he reckons our chances are thin.

    He says: “mate are we up for a good one?
    ‘Cause you never what you […]

    A weekend like so many
    We plan them all life long
    We sit or stand as football fans
    In silence or in song
    And something seems to join us
    Our work is left behind
    A few hours at the football
    With winning on […]

    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
