    Hi Crispin,

    Many thanks for that. I’ve actually changed it back because I feel the more ridiculous it looks, the more Ogden Nash it is! My own personal choice, others may disagree. But I appreciate the thought. Cheers

    Whenever the World Cup comes around, you can bet your bottom dollar that many’ll
    Plump for Brazil in this super-hyped, global quadrennial,
    Supposedly playing their football with an infectious j […]

    Sorry everyone. Away on holidays and not very good at the computer stuff anyway.

    I had thought I was commenting on Verse 2, Lines 3 and 4. The whole poem is done in rhyming couplets – I was merely commenting on […]

    The rhyme at Lines 3 and 4 is a bit dodge, Crispin???

    Protect us, Lord, from former players spouting
    their clichéd tripe when some team’s had a routing.
    Whether they’re on radio or tweeting,
    they know why this or that team took a beating
    and send me off to go a […]

    Eight years old and through on goal,
    the striker understood his role.
    With cool aplomb, he tapped it round
    the keeper and then went to ground.
    The goal a-begging but he chose
    to emulate death’s final t […]

    There’s airtime to fill, column inches to write.
    There must be new headlines from morning to night.
    We must be the place where the lads get their kicks,
    where the mono-dimensional fan gets his fix.
    No matter t […]

    I heard them curse the lack of silverware,
    those diehard fans from lonely Ross-on- Wye,
    still yearning hopelessly for football’s heir.

    I gazed upon the concrete bridge to Skye,
    that distant island ‘ […]

    Lovely internal rhymes there Crispin. And I agree very much with the sentiment, although I reckon there’s plenty of room for improvement!!

    For six-year-olds, the training’s done –
    they’ve run and passed and passed and run
    and dribbled slow around red cones
    with just the minimum of moans
    and learnt the art of ball control
    and shooting at a cone- […]

    A very fine and considered poem on the great malaise of the modern game. Or one of them, at least!

    Orange leather footballs in the snow,
    when struck with force from some attacker’s toe,
    would sting but you could never let it show.

    Arctic troughs could change the status quo
    and games that went ahead w […]

    Andrew, that saver/engraver line is terrific!

    My only comment about the subject matter would be that whenever the likes of Tony Currie or Rodney Marsh got into the England team, they seemed to get dragged down to […]

    The ‘i’s are dotted, ‘t’s are crossed
    and Tolka Park appears lost.
    The football ground will pay the cost.
    Financial targets? Sure, we never met them.

    Shels will go and share with Bohs,
    their bittere […]

    I miss the old clock at the Ballybough end
    that used to run slow when we had to defend.
    We’d play to it, pray to it,
    some folk would swear at it.
    And when we conceded, we’d voice our despair at it.

    But oh […]

    There doesn’t seem to be a clear pace-setter,
    careering through the fixtures with incision.
    There’s not one club that seems a whole lot better
    than all the other teams in the division.
    Everybody’s waiting to se […]
