Community, Memories and a Little Football Heaven
It was a foul. Even now I still believe it was a foul. Emi had the ball and was unceremoniously dumped on the ground. The referee signalled play on. The shouts rang out and Emi, in typical fashion, pounded his fists on the ground. Then something else happened. Emi got up, the roar of the […]

Two words that make most […]
