Are you ready for some football?

I grew up in a household where my
brother was completely football mad
He coped all through the summer till
Season started, boy was he glad

It was football on the telly
And football alone that he played
It was football this and football that
Only pictures of football were what he made

As summer ended and September came along
I would hear that horrendous call
"are you ready for some football
Who has brought the ball?"

And so the new season started
With boots, shin pads and new kit
The games would be every single Saturday
I suppose at least it kept him fit
