Shorey looked assured
Robbo was done by a lobbo
Seaneen cannot be ignored
Micah’s just the jobbo

But we must not Pander
To the ne’ersayers
We have who we have
Now it’s up to the players

International Friendlies – in preparation for the forthcoming Euro qualifier fixtures
England 1 – 2 Germany
Denmark 0 – 4 Ireland
Bulgaria 0 – 1 Wales
Scotland 1 – 0 South Africa
N Ireland 3 – 1 Lichtenstein (Euro Qualifier)
Germany – last team to beat us at the old Wembley,
first team to beat us at the New Wembley –
How we cling ever more to ’66!
‘Seaneen’ – Irish vernacular for ‘little Sean’ or ‘little John’
Germany’s winning goal scored by their debutante left back, Pander, who struck his shot like a missile from a Panzer
In Ireland, we celebrated our victory in Aarhus, with Madness’s “Our House” played on the radio!

If? Have you met a football supporter who isn’t? And just to prove it, the next poem is… super superstituous!

[Where has Jodi Craddock gone?]
I googled him (not being a Wolves fan, I hadn’t heard of him) and was surprised by what I found. There can’t be many ex-footballers who become artists. Thanks for alerting me to this interesting guy.
