    searching for the words that can uncover
    all the stuff you go through deep inside
    expectation and anticipation
    when you climb aboard to share the ride
    this is how if feels to be rewarded
    when you’ve […]

    there’s no football in Ukraine this weekend
    rivalries abandoned for a while
    stadiums and streets lie torn and empty
    no-one can be seen for mile on mile
    women watching husbands go to battle
    knowing not if […]

    Re: first verse of ‘My dad’ by Joe Morris..

    Great words Joe…Moving.

    It also reminds me, of all the people that I’ve been with in my life that just didn’t get football at all, full stop. So basically you […]

    …Fan is short for fanatic.
    Empires fall. Football’s
    nowhere near
    as important
    as life and death…..

     

    Great words Greg..keep on …best… C

    the half time news is sad and long
    the bombing and the war goes on
    you start to feel it’s bad and wrong
    to watch a football game
    to see the skills of some new star
    to carry on the way we are
    while in a c […]

    they’ve changed so much these days
    and long gone so many now
    those looming giant Martians
    that towered over towns
    throwing light and shapes
    replaced by modern soulless equivalents
    but still they beckon […]

    between the pitch and concourse
    the seconds ticking on
    her dad was early in in the queue
    to beat the half time throng
    not one to miss a second
    his daughter stood alone
    the sound of clanking seats was […]

    never thought love could feel this way
    never thought I’d hear it or ever see the day
    sometimes the words aren’t deep enough to say
    it’s just football love actually

    all of that stuff you just love to put m […]

    you run the ‘gamut’ Rovers
    upon this hill so high
    you never know if rain or snow
    or fog will wander by
    and so it was on nights like this
    with no wish to be bitter
    you know that if it had gone on
    we […]

    “Are you – and this is the most important –
    wearing your lucky pants?”

    (from ‘Reasons Why You Lost’ by Joe Williams)

    ALWAYS JOE!

    But when  it’s cold like tonight at FGR v Mansfield its the Lucky Long […]

    More thoughts on those leaving before the end of the game…and dead on the final whistle…

    What really cracks me up is that fans set from home really early and often arrive sometimes an hour ot two hours […]

    so true.Sharon..

    .in our stand at Forest Green we don’t leave til the whole team and the manager come over.. but the exodus of those  desperate to beat the traffic in the main stand  is unbelievable..

    I’d never heard of Forest Green
    nor had I glimpsed The Lawn
    when I first came to live round here
    just as the Eighties dawned
    I’d always loved a bigger club
    at home in London town
    but found myself upon thi […]

    if Lily Parr could be here now
    you wonder what she’d say
    as Chelsea took on Arsenal
    on Wembley’s pitch today
    and did our Lily realise
    the breakthrough women made
    their influence upon the gam […]

    there’s something happ’ning on the hill
    belief is growing as it will
    with far to go this time around
    we keep our feet upon the ground
    but confidence is there to see
    in Rob and Richie’s Green Army

    away […]

    It’s ‘off’ again now Conte has banished it at Spurs
    and just a few days later the matter’s even worse
    where Stevie G at Villa has brought the hammer down
    and with it those old ketchup wars are back again i […]
