Words What Wilfred Wrote

Postby Wilfred » Sun Feb 04, 2018 4:49 pm

Please forgive this piece of self indulgence. My old friend, T U O'Malsah, inspired me to write it.

I don't give a chuff about Chesterfield,
And that Meadow Lane lot make me pee,
So with no more ado, it's the Amber and Blue,
Of The Stags, my Mansfield Town FC.

For 60 odd years I've supported,
Ups and downs like a prostitute's pants,
But I still get the thrill and I always will,
From the days of those old North Stand chants.

The best match for me was THAT cup game,
When we hammered the Hammers at t'Mill,
Geoff Hurst, Peters and Moore, but West Ham couldn't score,
Roberts, Keeley and Sharkey - three nil.

Then the dark clouds on Field Mill descended,
Years of heartache and torment and grief,
Oh yes what a scrote, that big hat, camel coat,
Of that bad Calver cowboy called Keef!

Then an old son of Mansfield came dawning,
Along Quarry Lane - that's not all,
New hope was secured, Stags existence insured,
From the Field Mill ground came the One Call.

One call to the great fans of Mansfield,
Let's be proud of the MTFC,
And let's silence the moaners, give thanks to our owners,
The Radfords - and Gaffer Steve E.

Dedicated to all Stags fans and to two very special people. My late and great friends Bob Maddison and Pete Passant.

:coys:
Being a Stags fan never has a happy ending. Because being a Stags fan never ends.

Fantastic Wilfred.
How about adding some more verses ........ One verse for the the Dave Smith/Peter Morris era, and perhaps a verse for rising like the phoenix from the ashes out of the conference?

Proud to support our club at anytime.
Stags are for life not not just the good times.

Just makes it a bit easier now wearing the Famous Amber shirt in some bar in Tenerife without the urine being taken.

The ones wearing that dirty blue shirt with a badge with some sort of church on it get all that now :lol:

Theirs but to do and die

Thank you for writing such a piece and dedicating it to my Dad.
Dad (Pete) was a dedicated supporter of MTFC and still cheers on his team at every home game from just behind the goal.
I love knowing that his memory lives on. He was one amazing man and we all miss him.

Poetry is the new rock n roll Wilfy. You've smashed your Stratocaster and splintered the audience pal.
