    Football is flesh and blood
    love and lies and truth
    betrayal sadness joy and faith
    wit wisdom and idiocy of
    the indelible comradeship
    the principles and disciplines
    the traps tropes and temptations
    of a […]

    Sharon Jones published a poem on the site Football Poets 3 weeks ago

    When I am an old woman, I am going to wear purple
    In the name of rock and roll God bless my rebel soul
    I will learn to play guitar, and who cares if I’m out of tune

    Because I’m in step not out of time, and […]

    In goal there’s Nicko as steady as stone
    Swapped blue for white and found a new home
    Right back is Yatesy a machine scoring goals
    In the Cup he was magic St Yates Day now known!

    From the youth ranks M […]

    Football poems in muddy boots
    Those heroic couplets with chalk down the verbs
    Them epics that flew off the wings of metaphors
    Roared on by the mythic terrace
    In boss ghazals
    Syllables for goalposts
    iambs to […]

    As soon as you’re born you’ve chosen your club
    And you go with your Dad meet your mates at the pub
    And you give it your heart and your soul and your love
    Working class football is something to be
    Agents l […]

    Ali Turganbekov, from Kazakhstan
    This young boy
    With his beautiful shining glorious smile
    Won the Super Cup last night
    And proves that however we walk
    Wherever the path leads
    Whatever the obstacles
    No […]

    The poetry in motion
    Upon a football pitch
    Whence a Dalglish angles punctuates
    The essential wisdom
    And simplicity of a game
    Thus spake Shankly, Busby, Stein
    Scottish Steel hewn from the
    Collective nouns […]

    In vast shipwrecks of seasons dreams
    Amidst the clack of fans who scorn
    The overpriced and misplaced signs
    When boots of better days were born
    Our sense of joy with fleeting runs
    Those hazy mazy wingers […]

    Football loves its trinities
    And like the Holy Ghost
    Always feels more at home
    When the other two are close

    Hansen, Souness and Dalglish
    Or the 3 Jocks as they’re known
    Leaped right over Hadrian’s Wal […]

    Football teaches us boss lessons about love

    especially the heartbreak

    how emotions rule over flags raised

    and inside the head is screaming “You must’ve seen that!”

    and of course the offside rules never […]

    All around the country
    There is a gathering pulse-beat, a small yet vital sign of life
    The first heads of the green shoots beginning to push up and out into the light
    New kits on the block
    Relegation battles […]

    When I was in high school all those years ago
    In English I was taught Keats’ “Ode To A Grecian Urn”
    And whilst I loved this bright star’s resilient rebellion
    Not one single word other than those in the title d […]

    Oh how well orchestrated the redemption
    Playing cards with God
    No sleight of hand needed
    When the boots were blessed
    With such divine miracles
    6 lions not 3 left stranded bewildered
    Some say bewitched and […]
