    Another day of destiny
    Here comes deja vu
    Is your glass half full or empty
    Depends on your point of view.
    Third consecutive play-off final
    But the first at home
    If you can really call it that
    For to Tooting […]

    Half a mile from the station
    A delight of a ground
    Half decent programme
    Admission just five pound.
    Out of my local area
    Jumped on a train
    Headed for Risborough Rangers
    No I’m not insane!
    A sun setting […]

    I could have gone home after work
    Lazily watched DVD’s and stayed in
    But with Forest Hill Park playing Kent Football United
    That really would have been a sin.
    Forget that glorious English failure
    In the […]

    Nine times out of ten
    A semi-final’s a ‘must win’
    But pushing for play-offs with a fixture pile-up
    Means losing won’t be a sin.
    In the modern world the League’s more important
    With going up the ultimate […]

    There’s this one pillar in Catford
    Holding up a road sign
    When I first moved here it was tainted
    Now I’m claiming it as mine.
    Stuck on was a Clapton Ultra’s sticker
    Like Catford’s where they […]

    It’s third division football
    During international week
    My mate got me a comp for a Mons game
    Which is all I really seek.
    Not as in the freebie
    But a new ground for a ‘tick’
    Royal Albert Elisabeth Mons
    Was […]

    It was was a ‘blimey’ moment
    As I stood up on that park bench
    Losing our Football Club
    Would be such an emotional wrench.
    Not sure quite what to say
    Almost unable to speak
    A sea of expectant faces
    With our […]

    I got a slap on the wrist
    Not hard but gentle and nice
    Can I please reel in my poetry
    I didn’t have to think twice.
    Seems my backlog of poetry
    Is clogging up the ‘Football Poets’ site
    I really don’t want to […]

    I couldn’t get excited
    Try as hard as I might
    My heart wasn’t in it
    Yet it was a semi-final last night.
    Perhaps it was the setting
    First game ‘away’ from Champion Hill
    Strangely even though it was at […]

    It’s now the early hours
    On the coaches heading home
    No shame in losing to Macclesfield
    As our performances have shown.
    It’s been a huge Trophy run
    Of which I didn’t dare dream
    Despite being knocked out […]

    I wasn’t that impressed
    As we drove in at night
    If I were forced to live in Pitsea
    I’d have to run and take flight.
    Looking as dreary as Canvey Island
    Just without the seas
    Welcome to the delights of […]

    Imagine if you hated yours
    I can’t say that’s me
    But then I’m rather fortunate
    I’ve got the choice of three.
    There’s my proper real one
    Parents are both brown bread
    Don’t see my brother and sisters often
    If […]

    When you’re feeling rotten
    ‘Hair of the dog’ is the cure
    But then what happens
    When the Youth Team are just as poor?
    Not based on performance
    But chucking away a lead
    It’s bad enough when it’s First Team
    On […]

    It’s a perk of being a club official
    I’m on the Team Coach today
    On the way down to Winchester City
    Third Qualifying Round drawn away.
    They may be a division below us
    But form goes out the door
    The cup’s a […]

    People say if they cut me
    I’d bleed Pink and Blue
    I hate to disappoint
    But it simply ain’t true.
    I’m as ordinary as everyone else
    My claret’s old fashioned red
    I think it will just break my heart more
    If my […]

    I knew we were getting gentrified
    But this is really too far
    Smoked salmon sarnies on the bus
    Talk about lah-di-dah!
    She claims she’s ‘one of us’
    Growing up on the Rockingham Estate
    I’ll bet she’s never had […]

    Tonight I nearly messed up
    Almost got into a fluster
    Saved by the best Cockney bull
    That even I could muster.
    Zwolle versus Venlo
    The last game I was going to see
    What could possibly go wrong
    To a […]

    Half an hour before kick-off
    The seats are starting to fill
    The lure of the Dutch Cup
    That’s how I get my thrill.
    I hope it’s a better game than last night
    Not the best I’ve ever seen
    But the opposition were […]

    A pilgrimage I’ve been putting off
    A return to the other DHFC…
    For the ones called Den Haag
    Are the cloggie team for me.
    They’re not known as the Dutch Millwall for nothing
    Their hard core hooligans are […]

    I always get a programme
    Yet I don’t understand the lingo
    As soon as I see a seller
    My head explodes going ‘Bingo’!
    I only bought one
    As they charge a euro and a half
    Not that I collect stuff since I […]
