    So evocative Greg. We used to travel to games without maps just waiting for the floodights to appear….

    of all the stars that I have seen
    above the sky or on the green
    when I was merely but a child
    he was the one who made me smile
    when we would be there win or lose
    to idolise his ev’ry move
    the spot that […]

    The day you dreaded came to be
    And in its wake for all to see
    The history so swift destroyed
    The home and those all once employed
    The rollercoaster ups and downs
    The team had ridden in this town
    The […]

    give it up for trav’lling fans
    endless trips across the land
    sussing out the cheapest ways
    midweek games or Saturdays
    turning up in wind and rain
    through ther heartaches and the pain
    stuck in queues on m […]

    rollercoaster mesmerising
    gung-ho goals show tantalising
    like some throw back from before
    like some fifties sixties score
    just like you’re a kid again
    out there in the sun and rain
    game so open from the s […]

    it’s like we’ve never been away and yet inside we know
    that after all that we’ve been through we’re grateful just to go
    relentless rain then more again upon the pitch and track
    and on away fans out there the d […]

    I can’t wait for the start of the season
    it’s an ongoing long-run affair
    it’s only a game and I can’t quite explain
    but something keeps drawing me there
    it’s the walk up the hill in all weathers […]

    sometimes you know when it isn’t your day
    somewhere somehow
    deep inside that feeling
    we’ve all been here before
    in our lives in our world with our teams
    and when it happens
    surprise surprise
    words like […]

    heartache in the end

    one more big lesson to learn

    still we should be proud

    when England take on Italy
    what’s there to worry you or me?
    they are an unknown mystery
    and have so little history
    a well-trained dog is all we need
    to teach us how to hold a lead
    we better not play p […]

    I can still remember
    where I was that day
    I was just eighteen years old
    lost for words to say
    watching on that old TV
    there in black and white
    in a flat in London town
    dancing in the […]
