    for those souls lost needlessly
    on this very day ~

    As a child I drew crowds; row upon row,
    fifteen thousand little circles for the fans,

    how did we manage how did we get by

    what was it […]

    car or bus or coach or train
    climbing up the hill again
    in the howling wind and rain
    ev’ry time the same
    ev’ry single step you take
    premonitions that you make
    habits that you never break
    going to the […]

    so much talent taken
    all the broken dreams
    all the hopes you harbour
    for your chosen team
    from the very moment
    you first kicked a ball
    from the time you start to climb
    longing for it all
    so much promise […]

    some great lines as ever Sharon..i really love :

    Football is our saving grace
    90 minutes reliving a childhood long melted into the past
    But lingers, for what are we but children
    Divisively spiritual and […]

    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 […]

    still swapping shirts with Willie the Shake
    taught us words can make the heart ache
    showed us life is just a stage
    where we run and strive and guage
    this Peoples’ Game that carries on
    until the day that we […]

    I for one will miss

    paper tickets for the match

    when they scan my eyes

    I recall that Saturday like yesterday
    a steaming summer
    our first home game in ‘58
    excitement
    and childlike expectation in the air
    August in London and sweltering
    “stand clear of the doors!” “wear […]

    everything I ever did
    couldn’t keep emotions hid
    back when I was just a kid
    ev’ry time we’d play
    captured by a moving ball
    from the time when I was small
    have I really changed at all ?
    waiting for the day […]
