STEPHEN SPENDER AT OXFORD

From the Rage Online newsdesk

I Think Continually Of 20 April 1986

I think continually of those who were truly great
Who, at the Manor, created our club?s history
With terraces of delight, where fathers took their sons,
Endlessly singing. Whose playing ambition
Was that their hands, after playing with desire,
Should hold the Cup, ribboned from head to foot in yellow.
And grew more confident with successive matches
The desire driving forward their bodies. Skills that blossomed.
