Remember Wembley

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Remember Wembley?
Where Ossie’s knees went
all trembly apparently.
Well Wembley’s not ready
so it’s back to the
Millennium stadium.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Remember Wembley?
Where the Town assembly
sang so deliriously.
When Wembley’s ready
I’ll walk once again
down Wembley Way.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Remember Wembley?
Where I attended
an England friendly
against the Lions
from Cameroon on
a freezing cold February.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Remember Wembley?
Well let me remind
you ( gently )
that Swindon Town
are undefeated
at Wembley.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Heroes of ’69
resplendent in mud spattered,
black and white kit.
Rogers rounds Wilson in
strength sapping extra time. 3-1!
“And that is that!”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Ossie’s diamond geezers of ’90;
so easy against the Makems
it was embarrassing,
but only McLoughlin’s
crazily corkscrewing effort
to send us joyously up
to the top division
( or so we thought. )

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Then heart stopping moments
in the 4-3 epic in ’93.
Best game ever at Wembley?
Foxes of Leicester clawing back
a 3-0 lead to reach parity.
White prostrate in the penalty area,
Elleray awards a penalty,
a penalty at Wembley,
stroked home by Bodin calmly
whilst pandemonium reigned supreme
amongst the massed ranks of
the Town faithful,
safe in the knowledge that
“We’ve never lost at Wembley!”


I for one can’t wait for the official opening of Wembley stadium. How many fans of other teams can say they’ve never lost there?!!
