Give Us a Goal!: Poems by

by PaulCookson (Author)


This is a brilliant collection of funny and heartfelt poems about football - playing it, supporting it, living it, and breathing it. From the excitement of going to your first game, to the thrill of playing like Beckham with your mates in the park, this book captures all the emotions involved in following the beautiful game. From "He Just Can't Kick It With His Foot": He can skim it from his shin. He can spin it on his chin. He can nod it in the net with his nut. He can blow it with his lips Or skip it off his hips. But he just can't kick it with his foot.
