    Great memories Greg. Took me right back.

    Today I stand on a small terrace in the hills where I live watching Forest Green Rovers in L1, and keep up with Chelsea on highlights.  It’s a far cry and a world away fro […]

    the People’s Games is distant now
    they’ve redesigned our game
    it’s like there’s just the Premier League
    and nothing else remains
    I can’t believe it’s happ’ning
    they’re taking it away
    there must be […]

    you were the one we loved to hate
    your reputation wasn’t great
    we dreaded when we knew
    and evr’y time you ever came
    we taunted you throughout the game
    with “It’s All About You”

    and in the middl […]

    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 never […]

    …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!
