Football For All

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football is inclusive
Fans united (and disunited)
In colours of every hue

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A terrace rainbow perhaps
Of slogans and scarves
Still ‘our game’ whatever the
Press care to say

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And ‘Our’ means all
It’s choice It’s empowerment
It’s Football, plain and simple.

Notes

Would like to highlight the positive effects of football in the community being aided by a prem club. So much negative press around football alot of the time, and lots of publicity for the so-called “sexy” charities and community based programmes (all good causes); but very much neglected in society as a whole are young people (and people of all ages) with learning disabilities. Not being pedantic or anything, just wanted to create a ‘voice’ for footballers with learning disabilites.

Hope Fulham FC don’t mind me highlighting the good work that they do for all the young footballers.
