Jester’s Hats’ would make a good funeral poem for a football fan who passed his enthusiasm onto his children. It’s a footballer’s paradise, he says, where ‘there’s always a top team to play on’ and ‘the matches never end’. Julie McNeill leads our mission to encourage the masses to put ‘pen to paper’ and submit their work into our growing poetry collection, heralding their football heroes.

Just as any truly accurate representation of a particular geography can only exist on a scale of 1:1 (imagine the vast, rustling map of Burgundy, say, settling over it like a freshly-starched sheet!The experience moved him so much that he wrote a poem about it – “Ode to Everton” – and sent it into the Liverpool Daily Post. The 2011 Kirin Cup ended with ZERO goals with the three teams sharing the trophy - Japan, Czech Republic and Peru. Some would better understand the poetry in hiking and hitting, rushing and passing, kicking and scoring. He is the author of, among others, The Secret Library: A Book-Lovers’ Journey Through Curiosities of History and The Great War, The Waste Land and the Modernist Long Poem. During Crystal Palace v Burnley, Ally McCoist and Jon Champion referred to Roy Hodgson’s age as the oldest-ever Premier League manager and second-oldest in football league history,” says Mark Stephenson.

Yes, in our case, with two going down to the Conference, it could be entitled ‘Two Teams Worse Than Us’, but three would make us feel even safer. Ben Wilkinson digs further: “I can happily report many modern poets have written on the beautiful (and not so beautiful) game. Julie is a rising star of the poetry world, who gives everyone who loves the beautiful game, an opportunity to put ‘pen to paper’. While Jesus said ‘Blessed are the peacemakers’, Cookson pays tribute to the ‘tea makers’ – and everyone else who makes match day possible.

Hayes (1884-1940) was an actor as well as a poet, who is best-known for his poem ‘The Green Eye of the Yellow God’. Here is a collection of fabulously funny poems put together by John Foster and illustrated with creative genius by Korky Paul.

Ranging from the 1580 poem The Bewteis of the Fute-ball to poems by many of Scotland's best-known contemporary poets, including Hugh MacDiarmid, Norman MacCaig, Liz Lochhead and Edwin Morgan, the long and fascinating relationship between Scotland and football has never been encapsulated so well, nor has it meant so much.That becomes clear when you read Findlay’s latest work, 100 Favourite Scottish Football Poems, an edited odyssey through the nation’s cultural history, seen through the prisms of poetry and football. If you polled one hundred 50-year-old men who played high school football “back in the day” (as everyone says “up in this day”), you’d find a more nuanced response. This mini-anthology demonstrates that the beautiful game is entirely worthy of the beautiful language of poetry. TheKnowledge_GU With 3 goals scored after only 5 minutes 45 seconds of the Fleetwood v Wycombe play-off first leg tonight, does anyone know of any instances of 3 goals being scored in quicker time at the start of a legitimate match (not counting the famous 149-0 game in 2002)?
