    looking back
    I realize I had the fortune
    to see the legend that is St John
    play many times
    usually at ‘The Bridge’
    but only ever once stood
    on that fabled Kop
    and that was by mistake

    it happened […]

    until we go to games again
    I’m trawling way down mem’ry lane
    the times my fingers near turned blue
    the dramas being there with you
    and Covid’s got me looking back
    at what it is we miss we lack
    the times […]

    it could be just a one-off
    these days it’s hard to know
    behind your mask you dare not ask
    you’re grateful just to go
    a little hope amid the dark
    a glimpse of what we lack
    while stood upon familiar ste […]

    one Christmas during Covid
    we stand but far apart
    our loved ones and our football
    confined to in our hearts
    the snow has still to paint the land
    but hope surrounds us now
    with wipes in hand behind our […]

    back for one day
    to the ground on the hill
    careful and wary

    in our masks in the heat

    we’re grateful to be here

    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 […]
