    To say the atmosphere was fraught, watching Man U totally out-fought,
    In the betting down Rye Lane yesterday
    Would be…putting it politely, as t’was looking highly likely
    The Blades would be more than worthy vic […]

    Well… I never saw that appointment in North London coming?
    Here in the capitals football one usually does?
    Mourinho seemed destined for The Arse (and let’s face it…slumming!)
    In the midst of a media maels […]

    Prior to a torrential down-pour
    Abraham scores once more
    Our bogy team, fail to get a sniff o the game.
    Though keeper Kepa keeps a slippery clean slate
    He best quickly sort out his plates, or his […]

    Jimmy lived a quiet, quite un-extraordinary life
    Deeming his business none but his own
    Few drinks of a night, three intelligent kids, razor sharp wife,
    Occasional trip back to Limerick…”Me home”.

    His […]

    After giving Pulisic,
    Untold, untold negative shtick
    He schleps up to the grave-yard of Turf Moor,
    Where not only does he score?
    But…goes on to bag himself…a perfect hat-trick*.

    Leaving me and any oth […]

    Pair o Mickey Mousers en route to a cup tie in Genk
    Should have Googled the place fore they went?
    Mind you it’s easy for me, smugly extracting the pee,
    Pointing out GENT ain’t where two Scouse gent’s shoul […]

    After the lack-lustre performance by our chaps,
    During Friday evenings qualifying match,
    I blame on a drought of Marks and Spencer’s waist-coats?
    It’s nice to see a bit of real commitment I suppose?
    From a […]

    Knives are poised, they often are
    Some blame Brexit, VAR
    Others deem the chaps as looking tired
    Clubs zoom them off to foreign shores
    A well-earned bonding jaunt from you and yours
    Living in the daily realms […]

    A hoarse smoky slow refrain,
    Reading through my programme, caught my ear
    Waiting on a bit of poignant instrumental ska
    Let’s our emotions know whereabouts we are?
    Cue…a welling up, a hand shielding a tea […]

    Watching them, Irons, alight from a barge
    and gracefully skip over a myriad of puddles
    On their way to the stadium…after, avin it large
    Singing their traditional, “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles”.

    It s […]

    If able, Kane might wish to seek pastures anew
    After Tottenham gert mullered last night seven – two
    and to make the dilemma perverse,
    For those should I stay or should I go stars at Spurs,
    A former Gooner at […]

    Eau de cologne a la greasy onion
    Horse dung carpeting a street
    Shifty chancers vis a vis Damon Runyon
    A beady eye out for the police.

    Boozy balding blokes a boasting
    Bout their bawdy bar-room brawls in […]

    Half as nice
    As watching Eden scoring thrice
    Who needs paradise?
    Seeing Eden net thrice?

    Peace.

    Peeling spuds, washing glasses
    Using knives n forks, serviettes an plates
    Instead of…greasy mitts in a chicken box,
    Blue shirt proclaiming; “Gian-Franco Zola. God”!
    Quaffing Stella by the telly with his mat […]

    Captain hollered, “Kev!
    Fella’s hurted his leg*
    Need you to take his place, and go in goal”?
    Pulling on the goalies top,
    A hurried sign of the cross
    I ran out with the chaps to face our foe.

    Battered, […]

    Corner kick in his mind
    Eyeballs the monitor behind
    Before racing back on to the field…
    Vlad appears on the miniature screen
    Snarling, broody like, mean,
    “Right sunbeam this here’s the deal…

    Your […]

    VAR
    Robs HVR
    Outplayed France win The World Cup
    I louldly explete…”Griezmann! You no-good…….cheat”
    At his theatrics performed for the first
    Les Bleus second is worse
    Even with VAR, a VAR*
    Still […]

    Belgium’s best side for ages land third place
    “It’s Coming Home”, Ingerland a creditable fourth
    ITV – for me – hands down land the punditry crown
    For the match of the tournament thus far…I’d say
    …Keano […]

    A sallow, inflatable prez
    May (sic) think he’s some sort of a ledge
    During a presidential visit to Trumpton this week
    But he don’t come across
    Like the sharp bit of M an S cloth, whose simply been boss
    In […]

    The best kept secret in football is finally out
    A situation bordering on West London farce
    See’s Antonio Conte’s future no longer in doubt
    He’s tin tacked and given his cards.

    Last season, at times seemed a […]
