    there’s a certain spark
    when the sky turns dark
    and we gather from village and town
    there’s something right
    about the light in the night
    when the floodlights loom from the ground
    at night games

    so you […]

    my first ever match
    at the Bridge
    I’m 10 in shorts and the Wolves are in town…
    so what’s yours?

    I recall that Saturday like yesterday
    a steaming summer
    our first home game in ‘58
    excitement
    and c […]

    a friend and I were talking
    before the match last night
    on language and behaviour
    and stuff that we don’t like
    on how we felt about it all
    the things that we believe
    to not be thought old fashioned
    to n […]

    this is when you pinch yourself
    dust that scarf from off the shelf
    we ain’t scared of no-one else
    we are FGR
    brand new season brand new era
    can you feel it drawing nearer
    see our vision growing […]

    sometimes words are hard to find
    to just express in prose or rhyme
    the magnitude of this promotion
    this relief and this emotion
    felt in ev’ry single fan
    and longed for since the rise began
    who dreamt of […]

    Great use of wordplay on names Ianthe. Especially liked Lingard…as in a classic Cranberries song’Let It Lingar!’

    I’m tempting fate to get this down
    amid the hopes that swirl around
    but has the moment comes around
    to get into the league?

    It’s not about the vegan pies
    nor playing under Cotswold skies
    our taste is for a […]

    it’s so well written and respectful to the Cottagers…. that I didn’t discover til the end that you weren’t a Fulham fan, whjo like PNE also harbour hopes of […]

    one might also ask

    why was he still on the pitch?

    Ibrahimovic

    Back when William claimed our world’s just a stage
    And we are merely players one and all
    Was he inspired with quill upon the page
    Or horrified and shocked by this football?

    Did our great Bard endure and w […]
