    People want their Walsall back
    I wonder what that means?
    They’re marching to and from the site
    Of comedy latrines.

    They’re calling for belated truths
    And answers from the usurers
    Jeff patrols the bargain […]

    All the time you lied
    Whilst chasing our poor backsides
    Down motorways and through stations
    In the name of civilization.

    Chelsea suits fought solicitor gangs
    But at Saltergate we were the harangued
    The ordinary […]

    The striplights on the ceiling of the train.
    Are driving me insane.
    My now tubular brain
    Is peering at the rain
    On the window

    My God its only Leeds.

    If only someone was here to listen I would plead
    That there’s […]

    I didn’t see it in your eyes
    Although I should have guessed
    I didn’t sense it in your touch
    Or the romance you suggest

    My thoughts were overrun with love
    In every bar on every night
    Until I discovered tha […]

    Too long planning the trip to Crewe
    Not enough time in B and Q.

    Too busy watching Match of the Day
    Instead of saying the things I needed to say

    Sat on trains for too many hours
    And didn’t come home with c […]

    A funny thing happened
    Near the saloon-bar door
    As I was minding my own business
    En-Route to division four
    A raven-headed beauty
    Took my hand and lead me silently
    To the snug bar where she sat us down and […]

    And I’m still around?
    On my way to somewhere, I don’t know
    Someone else’s ground.
    With someone else’s weather on the window
    Those jokers in the rain on a snooker club car park.
    My train, seriously stalled by some […]

    David Foulkes published a poem on the site Football Poets 16 years ago

    I miss you
    York away
    The perfect curves of a Tetley glass
    Such fine booze
    On the banks of the Ouse
    Where I would talk to the statue of Constantine
    To the amusement of tourists
    Who don’t know what it means […]

    On the wet platform
    The essence of football fans
    Distilled and drenched.

    Tea all over the floor
    Women scream and pets scatter
    A cefax goal.

    Beautiful white clouds
    Unphased by the consequence
    Of the post’s width.

    It hurts
    Top at half time
    Bottom by five
    The day that eras come alive
    But you never how it’s going to fall
    During this cruel time
    It’s anyone’s call.

    Once the league cup first round eased us into the swing […]

    They say that anything is possible
    That any game is winable
    That nothing’s unobtainable
    If flesh and blood can kick a ball.

    You cling to these thoughts everyday
    If you’re a follower of Whitley Bay
    The club for […]

    No man or club is bigger than it
    Not the “R’zzz” of Reading
    Or the Golden Tit
    So I howled and whinced when I heard the tale
    Of Wolves premature
    Premiership season ticket sales.

    Just as Reading found with their […]

    All the pubs and trains and grounds I’ve sat in
    Just to see him run like a demented chicken
    The man can’t jump and he has no tricks
    Just stumbles and stoops to obtain free-kicks.

    You’d think with his size he’d be […]

    It’s a tough life
    sifting through the bargain bins
    those out of date and dented tins
    are metaphors, defeats and wins

    my up and down world.

    It’s physically hard
    training
    playing
    falling down
    to cat calls form the […]

    For those who think that hot air rises
    Beware Methusela’s many guises
    Like po faced chairmen baring gifts
    and assistant managers who can’t button their lip.

    It was “u’Rzz” and not little old us
    Who went and […]

    Gnawing the root of my nervous system
    Swallowing everyday life

    Thought
    Speech
    Appetite
    Sleep

    Inertia’s idle demon

    Who’s unborn seed in April’s womb
    An unborn foe that grows and learns
    The mechanics of our […]

    They’ve got me on their nipple of lies
    the drip fed deceit of the billboard’s surprise
    coming home from work every night in the dark
    just a taster…
    one line…
    dot dot dot question mark
    like
    WILL AXE […]
