    All of life
    Coursing through
    Each thirsty vein
    Binding dreams
    And racing off down a road
    That opened its journey
    Upon the shoulders
    Of the broad elephantine figure
    Bayern’s ‘The little cannon’
    Carrying a […]

    We’ve got a new striker
    He’s fast and he’s fleet
    He’s got thunder for boots
    And lightning for feet!
    We paid out in millions
    For his first touch is sweet
    He’s quicker than sugar
    Dissolving in tea!
    His […]

    What poetry would pour
    From gilded boots
    Flashing like blades
    Vibrant the pulse thudding
    With a slow moving seduction of senses
    Betwixt steaming pies and mushy peas
    Whilst the doppelgangers of […]

    in the hidden secrets of a small cafe
    on a bookshop narrowboat jostling
    against the canal sides
    an empty terrace filled with the sounds
    of lost dreams and old songs
    beyond the rubble of lies and the […]

    You can feel the excitement, taste the energy
    This is a proper football crowd come back home, European night game
    And walking up Lambeth Road past Sandhills never felt so good
    Them there Beatles adorn The […]

    Monday Night Football
    Home again…

    After sojourns
    Through wins and losses
    loves and heartbreaks
    non-league and grassroots

    in the fullness of time
    all things must pass
    and move
    this too.

    Give me an England of Rashford and Saka
    Of Sancho and Sterling and Co
    Give me an England of Southgate
    Not the racists and bullies on show
    I don’t want an England of ticketless louts
    Who think that it’s all […]

    when we sleep as mute as dust
    returned to earth and dead as rust
    then ask of each and every one of us
    how well did you play the game, cuz?

    We’re not looking for those miracles
    We’re not looking for the boots of gold
    We just want some football fireworks
    That lift our weary souls
    We’re not searching for El Dorado
    Or the myths of bold Gawain […]

    everything is political
    economics rules
    like your accent which school you went to
    or didn’t
    we carry these burdens unto the grave
    classified & categorised
    don’t need a virus or jab to track & trace […]

    sets our broken hearts on fire
    raises long-lost hopes
    like pilgrims gripped by holy grails
    we spring back off the ropes

    we never learn we long to dream
    like children scanning skies
    for reindeer and […]

    All the way to Wembley
    From the cauldron that is Rome
    A growing faith that dares to hope
    Is football coming home?

    Der “Golden Bomber”
    From whose graceful crop
    Came the rich harvest
    Of goals
    The yellow fire
    Illuminated with
    Dreams of glory
    Outshining the noise
    From the turbulent terrace,
    And now as graceful in def […]

    Finnish fans chanting
    “Christian”, Danes answering
    With love “Eriksen”.

    I have stood upon near empty terraces
    Beneath sunshine
    Dodging rain
    Caught betwixt nets of past dreams
    And their long refrains
    Oh, those long-gone games
    Between whose goal posts
    My days gavel memory and […]

    No more the raised eyebrow
    The gestures along the touchline
    The Corleone growls of despair
    And now the sands of Crosby silent
    Beneath the gaze of the Gormley statues
    More permanent than contracts,
    The toffee […]

    Life is like football

    We get kicked around

    Sometimes we’re up

    Sometimes we’re down

    Some days we win

    Some days we lose

    We often see red

    We all get the blues

    But what ‘ere the resul […]

    Give us this day our daily red
    Our football lives is how we’re bred
    The power and the glory of Ian St John
    And Liverpool greats now sadly gone
    Give us Bill Shankly and Uncle Bob
    Who loved our club and did […]
