poets corner - spurs rhymes

some of the Tottenham fans have penned paeans to their favourite team or players ... here are some of them ...

THE TEAM

Medley, Baily, Duquemin, Bennett and Walters,
Burgess, Clarke, Nicholson, Willis (or Withers), Ramsey,
Ditchburn in goal.  Manager.  Arthur Rowe.

The names fall into place after half a century,
All eleven of them, twelve if you count Withers.
They were never substituted.  Ninety minutes.

They played for the same team.  Always.
Their names fell into place.  Week after week.
You could take a roll-call.  They are immortal.
