    Give us back footballers of a different breed
    Give us back playing for football and not just for greed
    Give us back wearing the shirt for the pride not the fame
    Give us back playing on the park not a […]

    Football is mausoleum sans fans
    The stadiums mere hollow caverns of bricks and mortar
    An abyss of deathly silence
    And then on match day it’s sheer umbilical
    The very concrete quivers with excitement […]

    The beautiful feral wild creature that is the terrace,
    nothing like that swaying wall of unadulterated noise
    the big wide hungry heart that gives and gives again
    breathing life into the game

    And it’s not […]

    With silver bullets in his boots
    He gets the crowd up when he shoots
    He twists he spins he sways and swoops
    He’ll grab a brace of goals the noo!
    Along with Jackson, Clark, McConn
    You know he’ll score ano […]

    Football lives in our hearts, not our heads Crispin, and it nudges its space alongside our other more important loves.

    Love, that auld devil called football, is our respite, response and reason, and each page […]

    Thanks for those words of encouragement Crispin.

    We go to Lochgilphead Red Star Fc games here in Argyll, just a wee walk from our home.

    I always want Liverpool to win, club of my heart, but the prices priced me […]

    We’re easily pleased us football fans
    We don’t dote on silver and gold
    Just a player who puts in a decent shift
    And every now and then a half decent goal

    We love the blokes who huff and puff around the pit […]

    The town is culture to a core
    Blue or red through Lennon’s door
    The Cavern stage is set to see
    Another saint, so let it be
    The snarling wisdom, sarky verbs
    My teenage years summed up in verse
    Yea A […]

    Footballers are immortal
    They live forever
    In the memories of goals
    And the most sublime of passes
    Re-created from the archives of youth
    They race like Gericault’s colts across the pitch
    With our dreams […]

    Oh, the passion and madness of football
    The saints and the sinners we love
    The golden gods seated above us
    With their bright boots and warm knitted gloves

    The swaying of life is an ocean
    From terrace to […]

    It’s a superb tribute to one of the finest footballers to grace the game, and a lovely gentleman too.

    The chapter and verse who beguiled and dazzled
    With the smooth seduction of a million, million hearts
    Beating to the rhythm of the beautiful soul
    Whilst defences fell like discarded notes
    From a trembling […]

    Water
    Giver of life
    Cleanses, and quenches such thirst
    The Baptist used it making waves in Jordan
    Before the Grace of Word had spoken
    The Plumber needs water knows its power
    And harnesses it
    Works his […]

    Banks of England
    What athletic dignity
    Poured through each finger
    And ripped through the sky
    The Arc of Triumph
    The athletic body pushed through
    Impossible angles
    And as the man wheeled away
    Body flexed in […]

    They have pictures of miracles
    At the football museum
    Photographs that hold
    Within the flimsy paper
    Faith, Hope, Love
    Wrapped up in football boots
    That we all longed to pull on
    Wrapped up in football […]

    The dreaming of peace that is heaven
    An elegant pause in the light
    A bright shining star in the silence
    That burns in the dead of the night
    A voice then but quietly whispers
    And comforts my doubts and my […]

    The white and the gold
    The kings and the kings to be
    Stepping onto the technicolour stage
    To unharness the meticulous
    And the miraculous
    The supreme attacker
    Like a surging meteor
    Toward the peerless […]

    The natural freedom
    Whose wise limbs
    Came to life
    As the King who rained
    Over defences with his fingers
    Digging deep into sleeve-ends
    The skinny frame
    Quicker than a cat on heat
    Twisting like […]

    Football’s fickle gods
    Delight in creating havoc in hearts and minds
    “As flies to wanton boys are we to th’ gods”
    So spake Shakepseare’s Gloucester
    And tis true of football
    They weave their tricks in the […]
