Barcelona have perfected – the wall pass
one – two
tiki – taki
only they do it
all around the pitch

If these figurative walls
were for real
then Camp Nou
wouldn’t have a pitch…
but a maze!

And amaze – they do!

Watched some of the Barcelona v Inter Milan Champions League quarter final match last night – Barcelona at times were untouchable!!
Barcelona go through 3-1 on aggregate. To meet, hopefully (find out tonight) – Chelsea! (yes, we went through to meet our Nemesis)
& then it dawned on me this morning, that the ‘wall pass’ is a lesser spotted phrase these days!
(it came to mind after hearing this ridiculous story…..)
maybe this is why Bolton will never be Barca?!?!?!?

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…
