    this path we call a journey
    is taken without plans
    we turn up in all weathers
    with head and heart in hands
    we gaze like sheep upon these hills
    we rise and fall as one
    the seasons that hold promise
    are […]

    There’s something so evocative and  nostalgic for football fans the world over, in ‘revisiting’ old lost  grounds.

    Occasionally some  remnants remain,  with perhaps part of a wall or part or a stand or thre sha […]

    one Christmas in the trenches
    they stood in mud and sand
    their loved ones and their football
    a distant far off land –
    the snow lay thick as thick could be
    a bitter chill did spread
    behind the sand bags and t […]

    on heady days stood in the Shed
    for six sweet years you were
    imperious and smiling
    as we tore out our hair
    when I was young on Saturdays
    I’d be there win our lose
    and you stood firm composed and s […]

    ‘Three Teams Worse Than Us’ from our Toffee friend Denys in Italy, also sums up how FGR fans currently feel. Yes, in our case, with two going down to the Conference, it could be entitled ‘Two Teams Worse Than Us’, […]

    the strength and power in his boot
    from near or far when he would shoot
    the many times I saw him play
    at countless games back in the day
    the archetypal number nine
    who stays a legend for all time

    the […]

    anyone who’s been here
    anyone at all
    anyone who loves their club
    loves them rise or fall
    if you’re superstitious
    if you have a dream
    you endure the ups and downs
    following your team
    when you’re on a los […]

    we gazed enchanted here at home
    as swept along each day
    through early morning matches
    on evenings far away
    we sensed a #Me Too moment
    a raised and valiant fist
    the tournament that ebbed and flowed
    until the […]
