Football Fever: Poems about football


chosen by John Foster

A terrific and thought-provoking collection of poems – some hard-hitting such as A Game of Two Halves by Tom Wilde which juxtaposes the match in the ground with the fight between rival fans that takes place outside the ground; some poignant as in End Game about the Busby Babes; some just complete fun like An Older Sister’s Curse Put on to Her Football-Crazy Younger Brother…There is something for everyone here. A great one for dipping into and instigating discussion on all things football.
