    As touching and descriptive as I thought it would be Graham. So good to see that a sorry defeat for your team can bring out real emotion expressed so vividly in your poem.  I hope you don’t mind if I print it […]

    Classic Crispin. As you are, I am appalled by the treatment dished out to Claudio Ranieri, he is a gentleman through and through. As the Bard said;  ‘O, how full of briers is this working-day world.’   As You Like It iii

    Thanks Crispin. Always interesting to see the clubs that are not in the news week after week and they just get on and play good, entertaining football. The Pieman has added a different flavour though! I think he […]

    It’s no Pie in the Sky
    When the feathers all fly,
    When the big man went off
    And returned with a pie.
    He stood on the side-line
    Enjoying each bite,
    But it didn’t go down well
    As he picked the wrong nig […]

    FOREVER FOOTBALL

    Frustration, elation,
    With thousands just waiting
    For one of their players to score.
    And then it just happened,
    The breakaway came
    And the goalie laid stretched on the floor.
    His gloved […]

    Nice one! How many coats does he have or is it just one coat of many colours?

    He ran down the pitch with perfect control,
    Lifted his head and scored a fine goal.
    The crowd starting roaring
    To see their man scoring
    And his team mates acknowledged that goal.
    He raised his right […]

    PLAYING WITH STYLE

    The boots have arrived
    All the way from Milan,
    The games will be stylish,
    That’s the manager’s plan.
    The kit is brand new
    All purple and blue,
    The shirts are the purple,
    The sho […]

    ENGLAND, FIRST AND LAST

    Big Sam in a jam
    Playing out of position
    Scored an own goal
    The ref blew full time
    Walked off the pitch
    The end of the game
    Life won’t be the same
    For Big Sam.
    Ianthe Exall – S […]

    ALWAYS FOOTBALL

    The scarecrow leans against the wall
    And at her feet lies an old football.
    She cannot play
    And nor can I,
    But when I look up to the sky
    I see the memories of the football days
    Just flowing […]

    The wall chart is down
    The games are all done,
    At the end of the Euro
    Portugal won.
    There were high spots and low spots,
    England was poor,
    It didn’t take long
    And they were out the back door.
    Two high spots b […]

    The World Cup was won by England fifty years ago
    And there was a very special player
    From Fulham you may know.
    A solid, strong defender,
    George Cohen is his name,
    He gave his all to football
    For the love of the […]

    To score or not to score-what is the intention:
    Whether it’s nobler striking from the centre
    Excessive shots and drives,
    Or to volley against a wall of defenders,
    And by beating them, scoring.
    To aim, to strike a […]

    We climbed those steep stairs to the top of the stand,
    Where the view of the pitch was total and grand.
    We carried our cushions, our coats and our bags,
    We were the young 60’s versions
    Of what now are called W […]

    It’s that quizzical look on the faces
    That gets me every time,
    When I tell them I write about football
    And I do it in words that can rhyme.
    Is it because I’m a woman
    That they don’t understand why I do,
    But when […]

    You took the wrong road Louis
    When you came along for the ride,
    It’s time to take the long road,
    Just turn your back on the side.
    Man United now has lost its fire,
    Performances have slumped
    The situation is d […]
