Christmas Haikus

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 PAST :
Charles Buchan Annual
Got one every Christmas
Football fans delight.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Kept all of those books
Pictures of our football past
Jimmy greaves smoking.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 An autograph book
Scarf, rattle, and Cov City kit
New ball in the snow.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Present :
Christmas is coming
When games will come thick and fast
Lots of points to gain.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 My team are struggling
Slipping down the table fast
Long winter ahead.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Boxing Day game
At home this season, yippee !
It’s a six pointer.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Best christmas present ?
Three wins for Coventry City
Nine points, HO, HO, HO !

Another iffy season for my team, that’s all we seem to get, up and down, but you just have to keep going, I guess that’s the definition of a football fan, durability !
