    A plot of land that served them well.
    But now LFC have decided to sell.
    A training ground for many a year.
    But an Academy move now is near.

    The Melwood walls got a lot higher.
    With added twists of barbed […]

    If you see a white feather floating by.
    Coming from nowhere out of the sky.
    Down from Heaven a feather to drift.
    An Angel is near by, a loved ones gift.

    Into the face of a child a feather blew.
    Down from […]

    The Belfast Boy, a player complete.
    Had the football world at both feet.
    Art like gift, born to dazzle, to win.
    Never again to see the likes of him.

    In United Red, in native Irish Green.
    The greatest […]

    ‘Justice for the 96′ we know the chant well.
    All the flags have the same message to tell.
    The headline news always reads the same.
    ’96 innocent victims’ we recall every name.

    When candles are lit or when the […]

    And so the day has finally come.
    When justice may at last be done.
    I had my doubts, hopes been low.
    Dashed by many a liar in full flow.

    6 people will have charges to face.
    6 snared rats no longer to […]

    Chelsea’s ‘Chopper Harris’ defined the hard man role.
    He would even tackle his own Mother to stop a goal!
    Liverpool had the ‘Anfield Iron’ Tommy Smith his name.
    Those type of players are now missing from our […]

    Mike Bartram published a poem on the site Football Poets 8 months ago

    The truth we wanted, it was our demand.
    And justice its companion, hand in hand.
    The years rolled on, wasted with rage.
    Corruption and lies hogged centre stage.

    Eyes grew tired with grief, patience […]

    A sad day in our history now we mark.
    The Liverpool clouds grey and dark.
    In days of tantrums and obscene wage.
    No too many will adorn histories page.

    But Ronnie Moran was a different breed.
    He played for […]

    No heart, no passion no desire or care.
    Just poster boys with their perfect hair.
    No spirit, no hunger, no battle of fight.
    Not a single leader wearing red in sight.

    Where are the Carra’s and the Stevie […]

    In 1981 the cylinder was spun.
    No shot was fired from that gun.
    One chance gone, five remain.
    Russian Roulette, a perilous game.

    Now a stadium ban, a 6 year break.
    Ample time for changes to make.
    But the […]

    Sometimes it’s hard to find the right words to say.
    Sometimes it’s hard not to cry at what I saw today.
    A tragedy in the skies,sadly not the first of its kind.
    71 victims taken, all the broken hearts left […]

    Near silent grounds, though the stadiums are full.
    The atmosphere of old, I think they’re out to cull.
    Corporate boxes and suites, the way they want to go.
    They within many a fans budget, I hardly think so!
    A […]

    How big is your mansion, how fast is your car?
    Is your girlfriend famous, is she a TV star?
    What do you earn, what’s your take home pay?
    Does it really matter for what team you play?

    They were the questions […]

    No points gained, no table to climb.
    No Cup upset, no Wembley this time.
    No scorers to go on the score sheet.
    No ruined night in the wake of defeat.

    In the history books it won’t even exist.
    But as […]

    They said last season was a bit of a freak.
    As shock followed shock, week after week.
    Teams not afraid to take on the ‘top four’
    So what will this new season have in store?

    Was Chelsea’s season just a […]

    Today, in the warm July sunshine.
    I visited an old junior school of mine.
    Within its grounds I stood before.
    A tribute plaque at a gardens door.

    A plaque carved from darkened stone.
    For the 96 who never came […]
