    So our top lad has gone off to referee
    In the land of milk and honey
    Issuing cards and blowing his whistle
    In conditions warm and sunny.
    But when I wore my suit of black
    And took abuse that was was not […]

    For years I stood on windswept terraces
    And never thought I’d see
    A player displaying on his back
    The number Sixty Three.
    Wearing boots of pink and purple
    And advertising on his chest
    A price tag of Thirty […]

    Look out Big Sam
    Is after your Job
    Palace’s Pardew
    Or Swansea’s Bob
    United’s Jose or City’s Pep
    And West Ham’s Bilic
    Better watch his step
    Mackems’ Moyse
    Or The Potters’ Hughes
    Big Sam is the lad to fill your shoes.

    IN OR OOT, UP OR DOON
    EUROPEAN UNION OR THE TOON
    BUT NEE NEED TO WORRY
    WE’LL AL KNAA SOON
    IF WE ARE IN OR OOT
    OR UP OR DOON.

    Gallowgate flags fly at half mast
    Toon legends statues now wearing black
    Teardrops fall from leaden skies
    Pavel, forever a Geordie in Tyneside eyes.

    St James’ Park flags fly at half mast
    Club legends statue’s draped in black
    Hope’s of Tyneside cruelly slain
    The legacy of Ashley’s Eight year reign.

    WITH ANOTHER BLEAK SEASON
    AND WITH TIME TO ASSESS
    I HAVE REACHED THE CONCLUSION
    MY CLUBS IN A MESS
    A CLUB I COULD CHERISH
    FROM CRADLE TO GRAVE
    BUT JUST LIKE THE MODERN GAME
    I’M AFRAID NO ONE CAN SAVE
    AS FOR […]

    Of course It’s cold
    No use denying that
    But I’m wearing me thermals
    Me top coat and hat
    Price of admission a mere Three pound
    A warm welcome awaits
    As you enter the ground
    Buy a raffle ticket for a worthy cause
    As […]

    Are ye gannin’ to McClaren’s party
    If Forty points we reach
    Party hats and poppers
    And warmed up bits of quiche
    Ice cream will be plentiful
    Both strawberry and vanilla
    And we’ll celebrate
    Gannin’ doon the pan
    With […]

    Sept the 10th 1958
    To have been at ‘The Bridge’
    Must have been great
    A Six Five Special they said at the time
    Joy and heartache on The Thames and The Tyne
    Young Greaves scored Two and twice smacked the bar
    The […]

    If you refuse to sell me then I won’t play
    Imagine that happening in Shankley’s day
    Or youngsters attempting to call the bluff
    Of BUSBY, REVIE or MISTER CLOUGH
    The CHARLTON brothers, HURST and GREAVES
    Spitting out […]

    Is there a medic on the bench
    Jose’s gone down with a fever
    His speech is slurred
    He makes no sense
    He needs his darling Eva.

    I have seen my last goal
    I have sang my last song
    At St James’ Park I know longer belong
    To all those lads who built ships
    And all those who mined coals
    For the past and the future
    The death Knell now tolls
    One […]

    Miliband’s gone Gleggy’s gone
    Leaders falling by the hour
    Farrage about to bite the bullet
    But John Carver’s still in power……HOW.?

    IT WAS COLD AS I EXPECTED
    SPRINGTIME HALTED IN IT’S STRIDE
    IN THIS NORTH WEST CORNER OF DURHAM
    WHERE FOLK ONCE LIVED AND WORKED WITH PRIDE.
    FOR I’M AT AN AGE WHEN I CAN REMEMBER
    THOSE GLORIOUS WEMBLEY DAYS
    WHICH […]

    Goodbye John and goodbye Liam
    Supporters Unique who followed their dream
    Then an act of pure evil, over far away skies
    Next came the silence, denials, and lies.

    Now at St James’ Park,

    Your seats will be […]

    I’ll paint Sports Direct on the roof of The Kop
    I’ll bring in Joe Kinnear whether you like it or not
    I’ll remove the Shankley gates and dispense with tradition
    And I’ll sack Brendan Rodgers he shows to much […]

    I feel sorry for Sunderland
    I honestly do
    And my pal Tommy is sorry too
    He’s supported his team for 65 years
    Since that first day he climbed
    Up those Fullwell End stairs.
    Often spending money
    That he could ill […]
