    There’s no Heathcliff pulling on his boots
    And Rochester does not aim to shoot
    Three sisters may well be cheering from the stand
    But not the Brontes, Charlotte, Emily or Anne
    But the wind it whittles as it […]

    You didn’t play football
    On the grass of Strawberry Fields
    You didn’t wear a red or blue scarf
    Well, maybe a red one once,
    You didn’t strain your neck trying to watch
    The game from the Kop at Anfield or
    T […]

    Endangered species
    Not now in the Etihad
    Erling’s on the prowl.

    The most magnificent banner
    Unfurled beneath those Roman skies
    Joey Jones, European Cup Final, 1977
    This was before Dalglish pivoted into our hearts
    This was before the internet dealt away all secrets […]

    John, your new book is an absolute delight and more please. It’s a shame ‘Swapping Shirts With Shakespeare’ never made it off the bench, but quality football poets light up the writing fields like Roman candles. Go well.

    The modern manager with vicuna and veneers
    Laser vision 20/20 style
    Monster mentality gegen pressing guile
    But recognises
    That this community
    Is still all for one and one for all
    Whether Homebaked […]

    Coley is old school
    No vicuna black polo neck jumpers
    Or a new set of gleaming Hollywood teeth
    Philosophy is simple: ball to feet
    Keep it simple
    No frills or soundbites
    Not likely seen around Accrington […]

    Totally agree Crispin. Alex Scott summed it up beautifully to the ones who would not give the support when asked: “You had your chance & you missed the boat!”

    I, I will be Earps
    And you, you can be Toone
    Then nothing, nothing can stand in our way
    We can beat them, for ever and ever
    Oh we can be heroes , for more than one day.

    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 […]

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