    Are you hangin’ up your trophies on the wall?
    Are you watchin’ Salah mesmerise the ball?
    The boot room days are over
    And things not quite the same
    But 3 European Cups still bear your name
    What secrets did you […]

    Football is as much geography as physiology
    the pitch the very landscape of conjecture
    its borders collect around the ground
    tendered, watered, and cultivated
    cajoled into imagined emerald grass
    for molten […]

    The Beautiful Game is a wonderful life
    Gives us moments of joy wrapped in parcels of strife
    The goals and the saves and the less and the more
    The crosses and losses the wins and the draws
    The badly behaved […]

    200 souls in the pouring rain
    Week in week out all here the same
    Not for glory or the glimmer of fame
    Grassroots for me not gravy train

    Print match programme the odd refrain
    22 footballers taking the […]

    Shankly making the people happy
    Mooro pristine in his tackles and kit
    Banks of England with his safe pair of hands
    Chippy Brady darting over the pitch
    Adams as stoical as the house made of bricks
    Football to […]

    In the boots of a striker
    The bliss of a kiss
    The quiet of a heron
    Pursuing a fish

    Upstream and sparkling
    Where the wild salmon dart
    But most of all

    Through the aching capillaries
    Of my lost childhood’s heart.

    You didn’t play football
    On the grass of Strawberry Fields
    You didn’t wear a red or blue scarf
    You didn’t strain yer neck trying to watch
    The game from the Kop at Anfield or
    The street end at them there Blues […]

    The toes of a dancer
    The swish of a kiss
    The splash of red ketchup
    On lush fish and chips

    Upstream and sparkling
    Where the wild salmon dart
    But most of all

    Liverpool Football Club
    The place in my heart.

    Mi Scuse but I’m potty
    For the charm of Ancelotti
    Tho his chosen club of blue
    Is not my mighty bold red hue.

    No prima donna’s neon boots
    No glitzy goalie aches to shoot
    A sloping pitch a non-league dog
    A Poem A Pie and A Pint of grog

    Dogged defenders who stay the course
    Strikers with the pace of Inspector M […]

    The glory of football
    In the matches we love
    The breath-taking goals
    The tip of the glove

    But a club is a body
    Of myriad parts
    The backroom the boot room
    Not just its stars

    The steel of the […]

    play the game
    for love
    not for glory
    or gain

    tackle with dignity
    the obstacles and
    traps and tropes
    and the winning goal

    that no one saw you score
    will be seen.

    As children we gladly troop along
    And follow the piper’s thrilling throng
    Enthralled bewitched by the green of the pitch
    The banners flags and aye the songs
    As teens we slowly drift and stroll
    To fall in l […]

    Match-day programmes
    Old skool fanzines
    A standing terrace
    The stuff of dreams
    A pie & a pint
    Tales of away
    Like me my old trabs
    Have seen better days
    But Saturday’s youth
    These seasons have grown […]

    Going to the game with a hand wash and mask
    Swapping the Bovril and hot tea in a flask
    Co-Vid volunteers with precision they zoom
    The clubhouse is spotless elbow grease and broom
    Aye it feels different but […]

    I dreamt last night that Shakespeare’s Ghost
    Went for an English teaching post
    The English paper for that year
    Had several questions on King Lear
    But Shakespeare answered less than three
    Too bad he failed G […]

    The grassroots game is bleeding
    And supporters sick of pleading
    After 5 months end begin
    Now #Let FansIn

    The non league supporter knows
    All too well the plans proposed
    But let common sense this day […]
