Halcyon Days of Football

This just came up on my FB memories

IN THE HALCYON DAYS

In the halcyon days of twenty to five finishes
Now every day my interest diminishes
In the days of yore, we all knew the score
Back in the car by Five

In the halcyon days of the neutral ground semis
Now a new crap format that only pays for Wembley's
Overpriced construction and total FA Cup destruction
It only signals the end.

In the halcyon days of the floodlight towers
Seen for miles and saved many hours
Of traipsing through streets away from the station
No need for XXXXXX Sat-Navigation

In the halcyon days of proper terrace chanting
You'd do it so much that you'd all be a panting
No need for drums or cardboard clapping
Sing, forever and a day

In the halcyon days of String and The Tank
Weller class on grass and what about Frank?
Am I just dreaming?..yes that's probably it
Signed, Anon,...silly old git

I like that.

In the halcyon days of the old Millwall Brick
You'd run from the Wall until you were sick
If you were lucky you'd get back to New Cross Gate station
And board a tube train, filled with relief and elation
If you weren't, and they caught you
The clock would be ticking
You'd meet up with the Brick and no doubt get a good kicking.

In the halcyon days of damp sausage rolls
A bland tube of offal, in a brown-skinned sponge
You’d take a big bite and then choke on it
As John John Farrington did a toe poke at it,
At the Filbert Street end.
