    The Prodigal Son he upped and left
    For many a long, long year.
    Leaving a void that could not be filled
    Except by a flood of tears.

    Maybe once every Season the Son came back,
    But not in a shirt of blue. […]

    This is the third poem in a series – to appreciate it fully, you should read the earlier two – Rob Martinez’ Blue and White Army and David Moyes’s Blue and White Army.

    We’re Ronald Koeman’s Army,
    Our time is drawing nigh,
    Our Faith has never wavered,
    Our hopes are running high.

    Tradition? We’ve tons of it!
    Ambition? By the bucket!

    What does the game of football teach?
    Smile when you win, and accept defeat.
    You should not grumble, bleat, whinge or complain,
    Cry “It’s not fair, let the match be replayed!”

    Farage, Gove, Johnson and Stu […]

    Who topped the League last autumn?
    Who tops the tree today?
    Which team sits proud atop the perch
    This merry month of May?

    Not Chelsea, Spurs or Arsenal,
    Not Liverpool, Man U,
    But some upstart Midland outfit, […]

    Economics A-Level, pretty basic stuff:
    When demand for goods is strong, prices soon go up.
    If supply exceeds demand, or demand tails off,
    Sure as night doth follow day, prices quickly drop.

    Certain things we […]

    If you earn your living selling blow-up Spitfires,
    If you own a retail outlet or a pub,
    And were counting on a football feelgood factor
    To set your till a-ringing for a month,
    Then most likely you’ll be feeling […]

    What air shall I breathe?
    No choice about that – air Genoese.
    But what shall I speak – Italian or English?
    Native or learned tongue? Confusing business.
    Reading material – Shakespeare or Dante?
    Fancy a tippl […]

    We’re Rob Martinez’ Army,
    Throughout the Land well-known.
    Our Faith is granite, adamant,
    About that make no bones.

    A Football Club, no brand, are we,
    Worldwide is our renown –
    On bark of trees across the […]

    Oh, Liverpool FC is a truly massive club –
    They’ve won hundreds of League Titles,
    And five European Cups.
    But their season’s started badly,
    There are rumblings on the Kop,
    And there’s tension in the Boot […]

    If you’re looking for some football merchandise,
    I suggest you take a plane or train to Nice.
    In Rue Defly there is a little shop –
    With any luck you’ll find they have in stock
    The scarf or shirt or hat you’r […]

    Can you believe, we’ve gained our reprieve,
    We’re not being cast down to Serie B?
    We’re staying in A, for many a day,
    Well, for one more bright Season at least.

    Oh, what a relief, we’ve been spared the gri […]

    Tell me, now tell me, what’s it to be,
    Serie A or Serie B?
    Will we stay up, or be flung headlong down?
    Will we feel chuffed, or with despair groan?

    Drop or Survival, Heaven or Hell?
    Champagne corks p […]

    We hadn’t tasted victory since freezing, frosty February.
    We’d clocked up numerous defeats,
    P’rhaps scraped a couple of draws.
    But May, the merry month, at last, three welcome points has brought.
    The funny […]

    They’re racing like whippets, they’re running like hares,
    Pray, what is the point of it all?
    There’s twenty-two fellas in shirts, shorts and socks,
    All frantically chasing a ball.

    There’s three points to make […]

    Why are they playing no matches today?
    Why are the football grounds empty?
    All action’s called off as a mark of respect
    For a player died aged five and twenty.

    But why, why, why, why could he not s […]

    David Moyes has proved adept, no-one could say that he’s inept,
    He sure knows how to make the most of limited resources.
    Came in seventh this Campaign, fourth place once or twice,
    His diet’s bread ‘n’ butter, […]
