the pundit poems

Archie Macpherson, in a radio football commentary Scotland v. Chile (late 1970s)

Ho! – did you see that!

David Begg says

Artur Boruc’s
made a kipper
out of that

Steve Claridge says

this fellow
Alberto Riera’s
the full McCoy

Steve Stone says

the winger’s
running round
like he’s broken
his leg

Kevin Gallagher says

the right-back
is inillegible
for this cup tie

Alan Shearer says

he got them off
to a good start

with a great finish

Robbie Savage says

he’s gone through
that defence
like butter

Some of these poems were first published in Says You, Oystercatcher Press.
