    Thank you Clik. Football like Christmas never fails to take us back along the corridors of childhood.

    It’s like coming home
    Opening the fixture list
    Checking who we play first
    Then looking when we play them blue noses
    The hopes and dreams new season bring
    Ignite my soul as I count down to that first g […]

    John Lennon
    He wore a red and white scarf
    But did not play much football
    And when he raced across Strawberry Fields
    He ghosted between the spaces of childhood
    Slipped unnoticed behind the gaps
    Where nothing […]

    How much money do you really need
    Is it market forces or just plain greed
    How many Ferraris in the drive
    The constant snort of I ME MINE

    When will your pot of sporting gold
    Manifest in terms of stay or […]

    There’s a war in Yemen
    But does anybody care
    There’s a war in Yemen
    Near a million disappeared

    Alan Shearer makes his comments
    Ukraine’s plight has left him shocked
    But he sings a different toon
    For […]

    We are romantic about football
    Eulogising our heroes
    Those chivalrous gallant knights of the pitch
    But when the smoke of love disperses
    And we look and see
    Those football boots of clay
    Caked in the mud […]

    Kelleher steps up
    Alisson sits on the bench
    The Cup’s in safe hands.

    “Guess who’s been on Match of The Day?”
    “You have in yer big shorts!”
    ‘Anarchy in Timperley’ the soundtrack of
    My teenage years
    Frank and his fantastic shopping trolley
    The genius of a paper Mache […]

    Your eyes shine
    Like Mané through
    Your lips as red
    As Gerrard’s boots
    This Ring of Fire Allez Les Rouges
    My Kenny Dalglish my Ian Rush
    You trap my dreams
    Nutmeg my soul
    You’re Shankly’s words […]

    On the outside of football boots
    We recognise branding and logos
    And crave those stripes or swoops

    We believe that by wearing these artefacts
    Of rubber and plastic
    Our feet will be transformed
    And we […]

    Sculpture is the art of stripping away
    What does not need to be there
    Cutting away what is not necessary
    Idols
    Addictions
    Compulsions

    So that we see the beauty
    That was always there, hidden within […]

    Like Michelangelo’s David
    We are entrapped in stone
    Waiting to be freed
    To set foot upon those playing fields
    Unfettered
    Childlike

    Just a ball and a patch of green grass
    “Football’s such a simpl […]

    It’s weird to see it happening, especially when you consider the price of tickets at PL games. So much action often happens in the final 5 mins!

    I wonder if these people
    exit the stage before the last act
    leave the cinema before the final scene
    start sentences that are left wordless in the air
    turn off the road before reaching the destination
    open a […]

    THE PRESENT
    These old bones
    Rattling tackling moaning groaning
    Inch invisibly
    Along the inevitable road

    THE PAST
    Kennedy, McDermott, Keegan
    The Kings of Rome
    Bob’s ghost
    Those Durham vowels […]

    No doubt that Bill
    Would eager thrill
    To the fire of Salah’s fame
    But I think like me
    He would yearn unapologetically
    For the game
    From whence he came.

    Boss poem Lee.

    Rock & Roll & Football
    Two halves that make one whole
    The terrace throng we sing along
    God bless this mighty soul

    The Game is nowt without the fans
    That pulsing swaying roar
    Of songs & chants the shards […]

    It’s just a game
    Not life and death
    We know this old refrain,
    A leather ball
    A muddy pitch
    And childhood, once again.
