    Mista, Vicente, Baraja
    was the trio
    who played with
    brio
    Best ever Valencia team

    How to contemplate
    Survival and Revival

    Seriousley ?

    The Tranmere fans are waiting

    But this is on the cards

    Mersey Derby 2
    Mersey Derby the Second

    Come on

    Come one avoid that
    Come on avoid that

    I was thinking back on sacred days
    Of Saturday and Sundays
    When John Arlott must have pondered
    Lightly on cobble stone roads and streets
    The feeling, weight and sentiment
    Football’s greater insignificance
    In […]

    It must have been 1965,
    We were having a lunchtime kick-about.
    ‘It’s Good News Week’ by Hedgehoppers’ Anonymous
    Was playing on someone’s transistor
    Just behind the goal nearest the school,
    Someone was puffi […]

    They said we were ungrateful,
    When we sacked Allardyce.
    And now we’ve fired Frank Lampard –
    We really are not nice.

    But football’s about winning,
    We’re hungry for success,
    So poor old Frankie had […]

    In the land of TV, milk and
    Brazen commercialism
    The gentlemen of Accrington Stanley
    Drink in the calcium goodness
    Victory of FA Cup glory
    A long way to go for those
    Who devour the Lancashire hotpot
    With […]

    If you’ve ever been there
    If you’ve had the call
    If you’ve had that feeling
    Writing’s on the wall
    Like some guilty party
    In your heart you know
    There is no alternative
    When it’s time to go

    Whe […]

    No longer in the drop zone
    Relegation put on hold
    In that awkward area
    Of abeyance but for how
    Long. Today but maybe not
    After FA Cup battles at
    Derby. West Ham clinging on
    For dear life, near
    Trapdoors […]

    Where are we?
    Joint Bottom!
    Who we with?
    With Soton.
    Where are we?
    Joint Bottom.
    Rip it up, start over again.

    Past glories?
    Forgotten!
    Finances?
    They’re rotten.
    Where are we?
    Joint Bottom. […]

    Here we are all together
    In the boisterous world
    Of football’s infancy
    Neither screaming or crying
    Since that would be sour grapes
    The beginning of another year
    And time to ponder the wondrous
    Literary […]

    So here we go in a breathless gallop
    A race through the FA Cup third round
    Results, shocks, giant killers
    All in one huge documentary of
    Purple prose, but surely not from
    These ink stained keyboards
    Not […]

    Picture The Scene. Sloane Street. London. 10-52…

    An empty sherbet, flagged down by a bald good-looking bloke,
    Says, clearly desperate to get his derriere up and on the go,
    “Driver, please take me to The C […]

    Vialli Vialli
    In stereophonic symmetry
    Crying out across the land
    Tonight at the Bridge
    Chelsea lower their flags
    For their beloved one
    Gianluca Vialli
    Today departs from
    His West London home
    Of his […]

    The blue Azzurri fire that burned
    when I first saw you on my screen
    one Nineties Sunday Channel 4
    Sampdoria your long time home

    the passion in your play that shone
    as bright as bright for all to […]

    Christmas, has just flown past
    Flags are flapping at half-mast
    An air o’ melancholy floats upon the breeze
    Sauntering past a cinders football pitch
    I relive every battle, fought upon it
    When we feared n […]

    “If The Toon score now, he’ll do his nut
    He’s lost his marbles, near enough
    What’s with all that static down the touch-line?”,
    “Geezers totally lost the plot
    Drop a couple o’ Yorkshires in the pot
    No, I’m […]

    Hmm…not sure a bunch o’ smug smiling faces
    Being papped at a legends lying in state equates,
    To what’s commonly known as respect in good taste?

    So this New Year we were Coventry bound
    Family ready to Auld Lang Syne in the land
    Where once Jimmy Hill’s beard and chin
    Bristled with comforting oratory
    Chit chat about everything
    From the maximum wage […]

    A mighty man of six feet three
    And weighing fourteen stone
    When Palace struggled in the First
    John Jackson stood alone.

    John (Stonewall) Jackson
    Kept Palace up for years
    How he never got an England cap
    Is […]

    Always tired
    of the question
    who is the best ever player

    I would say
    It doesn’t matter !

    Say that Mozart is above
    Bach or choose
    Between Paul Mc Cartney
    and Elvis

    It doesn’t matter
    There is no […]
