A Football Poem: The Magic of the English FA Cup

The English FA Cup
goes on for ever more,
But in some games
that are played – both
teams fail to score.

But there are some
shocks in store – as
the underdogs do
well,
And when they are
on the pitch – they
really all do gel.

‘Just take a look at
the seasiders – little
Blackpool by the
sea;
‘They march on to
the next round,
winning is the key.’

‘They are also doing
well in the league,
that is for sure,
So advancing in
the FA Cup – is
the perfect cure.’

Little Fleetwood
Town, sadly, go
out of this
tournament,
But they did very
well – they enjoyed
their magic moment.

Now they seriously
are doing well in
league division one,
They are now in the
play-offs – boy, they’re
having some fun!

The excitement is
now mounting as
the little teams do
well,
The more games
they do win – the
more tickets they
do sell.

This is what makes
the FA Cup so special,
that is for sure.
Especially when the
players involved,
play well and finish
with a high score.

Oh, I almost forgot,
another team who’s
through,
A team who should
have (WON) promotion –
from league division
two.

Yes, the fabulous
Accrington Stanley,
they drink a lot of
milk,
Because sometimes
on the pitch – they
really play like silk!

Let’s all enjoy every
game – and the
excitement that’s on
show.
Enjoy the fantastic
atmosphere, that
we’ve come to know.

There’s more signings
still to come -as new
talent is unveiled,
And then they can
show their footy skills –
on the football field.

Oh come oh ye
faithful followers,
and follow your
favourite name.
That’s why in the
future – English
football is the game!
