Just a short plug for the football poets website on which everybody young or old is encouraged to submit poems about football. Lack of website knowhow means the site has changed little in ten years and can seem quite dated. At this time, the poems are flying in and you hardly get any time on the home page. In the close season, they'll maybe het three poems a week!
Some of the poems aren't great - some are quite good - but everyone is encouraged to have a go. Rules are - no bad words, at least one line must be football related, no racism and it has to be up to a certain standard (No "Man U are best - better than the rest")
