    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 […]

    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 […]

    Mike Bartram published a poem on the site Football Poets 3 months ago

    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 […]

    18 Titles and 5 European Cups to our name.
    And many domestic trophies to add to our fame.
    We’ve seen open top buses to celebrate our feats.
    With thousands of reds lining the Liverpool streets.
    But now this latest […]

    Gone has the smokescreen,all lies and haze.
    Clear is the truth, now freed from the maze.
    The clouds have parted, once heavy and full.
    The sky looks brighter, no longer winter dull.

    A Rainbow has appeared, a God […]

    Twenty seven years on, it’s over at last.
    Hopes once dashed, now all in the past.
    Every single red has dreamt of this day.

    With every ghost, we can now finally lay.
    Accidental Death verdict, now […]

    96 doves now take to the air.
    96 doves to show we still care.
    96 doves the colour of snow.
    Into the sky, now home to go.

    96 doves a true sign of love.
    Circle the Anfield skies above.
    Doves that express spirits […]

    Tired with grief, with anguish and pain.
    Weary of my tears falling like rain.
    But still they fall, and guess always will.
    The sorrow I felt then, feels the same still.

    Tired of the loneliness that my loss […]
