a swanky coach today
junkyard jalopy tomorrow
money no object for the tie
then it’s back to beg, steal or borrow!

I had to smile – in today’s build up, manager Shaun Gale says “”But it can’t be a day trip, we have to treat it like we treat all our games. ”
And then we hear that the team are arriving in style using the England Cricket team’s coach, and training at Man U’s complex!
Good Luck Havant – I reckon everyone in the country bar the red half of Merseyside will be up for you!!
From BBCi :
Liverpool’s Spanish international Xabi Alonso is fascinated by the fact that a Premier League club can face a non-league side in the Cup.
“In Spain you can only play teams up to two divisions below you,” he said.
“But this is all part of the glamour and the prestige that the FA Cup has. This is why it is so interesting.
“It is the oldest football competition in history and it means so much to the supporters in this country.”
Hawks captain Jamie Collins, a 23-year-old schools football coach more accustomed to crowds of 600, will lead his team-mates out alongside Steven Gerrard..
“It’s like a World Cup final for us,” he said. “To get to the fourth round and play Liverpool is a dream come true.”

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…

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
