The Reason


 The Reason we Go to The Game

Posted by Preno on The People's Forum, 16 August 2002
The sun will be shining

The M62 will sport many a blue & white banner

The pub will be chocca

The lads will be there

The laughter will be loud

The jokes much the same

The (2) bar staff will be stunned theres a game on

The mind yer car lads will look that little older

And so will we.

The walk up Walton Park Avenue will be joyous

The smell of fried onions & horse shit will emanate from the corner of Bullens Rd & Gwladys St.

The shop will be empty of stuff

The paint will be bluer than you remembered it

The faces will be familiar

The hellos as if it were yesterday & not May you last spoke

The nets will be Persil white

The grass will be greener than ever before

The proey will be dearer

The faces will be happy

The st end will be bathed in August sunlight

The Park End will simmer in the shade

The Z Cars alert will be music to our ears

The roar will make the hairs on your neck stand up

The shirts will be better

And so will the team (!)

The highs will be matched with the lows

The joy with the pain

The half time break a blur

The win will be ours

The day will be perfect

The badge will be kissed

The reason we go to the game
