He plays in the middle
like it’s June on the reef
with a touch as light as lemon drizzle,
feet which glide upon a thermal
and defenders left in disbelief

As a Fulham fan, there’s one player above all others that I’m likely to write about, but this is at one remove having chatted with a South African friend who regularly watched him.
Interesting to note that his one winner’s medal was for Durban City: overdue, richly deserved and a testament to his loyalty

Too right Kev on both counts VAR and missed chances….!
Dilemna for Gareth…
….will he be bold and sacrifice Sterling for Rashford …or worry about Sterling’s confidence being dented even though he never scores for Ingerland and keeps running into dead ends….no time for that..
.and RLC in for Deli Alley Pally….time for bravery..
nice one C
See in context

Didn’t know Hazel O’Connor will be at the Godiva festival. Her late mother lived just a mile from where I live. Hazel is a proud Cov Kid and loves coming back home. So I’ll be there to watch her !

Supporting Cov City for decades and watching England too has made me cynical and negative. But keep it to yourself my club is on the way up, and secretly I like England giving youth a chance. And I’ve put an England flag up,the only one I can see flying at the moment on our street. So I am trying !
