A Sixties Lad’s Christmas List.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Please Father Christmas
these are things I’d like,
a Coventry City football kit
and a Sky Blue coloured bike.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A Charles Buchan Annual
a wooden rattle to click,
a pack of football playing cards
so I can do a magic trick.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Bobby Charlton boots
England calendar for my wall,
an autograph book
and a leather football.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Can I have a new scrapbook
and a big bottle of glue ?
plus a scarf and bobble hat
but remember they must be Sky Blue.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So happy Christmas Mister Santa
be careful as the snow does fall,
but I’ve just remembered one final thing
can I have a game called Blow Football ?



One for nostalgia lovers like me another trip down memory lane.

Forget laptops, iPads, mobiles and expensive trainers etc, these were things on my list as a young kid.

I never got everything I asked for but if I got a rattle, a ball, and Coventry kit I’d be really happy.

Can you imagine kids today playing Blow Football !

Editor’s note:
A trip down memory lane for so many of us!

And who’s to say we’re not better off for blow football over FIFA 15?!?!?!?
