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!

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…
See in context

Poem & save!
We got our first colour tv for that Mexico World Cup.
The best ever as far as I’m concerned, on so many levels.

So many great lines here Nicholas ..and a big welcome to Football Poets. Keep on and more please.
I’m really interstged to know where you live now…and which period you lived and played in – in S.Africa and where? I lived there during apartheid long before Mandela’s release – running a New Age clothing shop on Claremont Cape Town 1972-1979 (as you do!) Now I still perform poetry live and drum on the terraces with a New Age (Vegan) club in League Two (and the next village) Forest Green . Keep on my friend. C
