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!

I really like this poem. So many great phrases: “striped and manicured”, “a crowd of heads go drooping”, “and maintain home advantage”, “when Mum blew for dinner”. Much appreciated! Thank you.

Such great words Ray. So evocative of that time of innocence Kepp on mate. More please. It will be under the Nostaglia section too.

As a child I drew crowds; row upon row,
fifteen thousand little circles for the fans,
such a great line…bewcause we all did…and golaposts nets and floodlights too…
