    THE UNITED TRINITY

    The oppressive greyness of the sullen sky
    Could not engulf me as I stood enthralled
    By the revered statue of The United Trinity,
    Always loved and respected
    From here to infinity.
    More […]

    THE KIDS WITH THE COVERED CARTS

    The neglected pitch is dry and rough
    The goalposts taken down
    An abandoned ball all scuffed and grubby
    And the side-paths overgrown.
    Bleak, unloved and empty
    The ground no […]

    Watching the gulls all swooping around
    Brought back the memories of some very strange words
    That made us all think
    Trying to find the real meaning
    And connecting the link
    To the sardines and […]

    COUNTING DOWN

    From Arsenal to West Ham they’re all on the list,
    I’ve checked them all twice in case one has been missed.
    But no, they’re all there in the Premier League,
    Bringing much speculation and a littl […]

    Wonderful, touching poem. You have done them proud expressing your feelings about their achievement.

    Harry Kane did it again,
    And again and again and again.
    Too many teams have been drawing,
    Losing the fine art of scoring,
    Many games have been just downright boring,
    But Kane soon got the crowd […]

    If you walk down the Alli
    When there’s no-one around,
    Just use the Southgate
    To get into the ground.
    No Martial arts on the programme,
    It’s all football today,
    The supporters are Keane,
    They’ve been waiti […]

    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 […]
