    Pride of Padiham in the groove
    A poem pie and pint
    Aye goals sublime and tricky moves
    And Daz O on the mic!

    The boys in blue they do their best
    To make themselves a name
    They give their all and make us […]

    In the year of Our Lord 1914
    The call came for lads to join up with a team
    So they packed up their boots with their hopes and dreams
    And they offered their hearts for the price of a shilling
    For the crown […]

    Tonight
    The turnstile will close
    The whistle will be silenced
    The watch will stop
    The cards packed away
    The boots that clashed sheathed
    And the tackles shackled from the heat
    of battle
    We will step off […]

    Nobby Stiles
    In white and red
    Jigged with Jules Rimet
    Not a tooth in his head!

    Through the summers long gone and the winters to be
    The songs that were sung by my old friends and me
    So, what of the glorious days of the past
    The nights that we lost and those that we danced
    Dressed up with […]

    From Huddersfield
    Driving down in an Austin A40
    No palms were thrown at his feet
    No sweet Hosannas filled the skies
    No heralds announced the saviour’s arrival
    And beneath Liverpool’s sullen grey skies
    He wal […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
