Good work again, Davy. If you miss the last pick then you might be left outside (Rather than ‘outside left’ – Although such a position doesn’t exist these days I suppose. Showing my age!).
Ha-ha, that brings back some memories Roland. And them leather footballs, when they were wet. It was like heading concrete.
That’s why I assiduously avoided heading the ball. Especially I saw some nasty cuts from the laces which were usually exposed.
Roland, It was a case of if you saw the lace coming towards you then duck. Fortunately they had been phased out before I started playing at school.
Thank you Kavita 🙂
Welcome Davy 🙂
Wow! Crossing fingers and toes. A good one 🙂
Thank you NJ. I am glad you enjoyed it 🙂
can be interpreted literally and figuratively, right? 😀 nice one, Davy!
Thank you Rosema. Yes this poem can be construed in a number of ways. It is mainly a reflection of a childhood memory. Thanks for taking time out to read and comment 🙂
that is nice to know. hey. it is always my pleasure. 😀
Well done 🙂
Thank you Delyn 🙂
Most welcome 🙂
Love that. I remember picking teams at primary school, although having an Oldham Athletic football top seemed to be important than skill or fitness!
Cheers Martin, being a Carlisle United fan I can relate to your thoughts. I was thinking of the scene in Kes when I wrote this one. That section with Brian Glover in his Man Untd top and the football game is a classic.
That scene is classic and pretty much true to life. That’s if my experiences of running the first year boys football team at a Lincoln comprehensive are anything to go by!
Me too and it’s scarred me for life lol.
