the anticipation is often greater than the reading

One of the highlights of the football calendar. It's the first FA Cup poem week


  • The Wycombe went off to the Moors
    Supported by pedants and boors
    Undone at the back
    As defenders they lack
    Led to "Ainsworth sacking" flame wars

    “and Will finished up on all fours” would be a cruel echo of the goalmouth scene as Cheltenham scored their equaliser. But I like it and bear no malice whatsoever towards the lad.

  • That gave me a bleary-eyed early morning chuckle. Tip of the cap to you @Manboobs.
