Honoring players through Haiku


Sep 14, 2011
West of Roots Hall.
No doubt this has been done to death before, but I thought it was about time that we banded together to honor our players (past and present) through the traditional medium of the Japanese Haiku. What could be more appropriate than a rigidly structured word image all the way from feudal Japan?

Apparently this sort of thing goes down a storm at Grampus 8.

Just when you thought things couldn't get more fun or exciting - how about if we guess which player is being immortalized? Strap in Shrimpers, it's going to be a wild ride.

Here's a couple to get you started, answers on a postcard please.

Unlimited force
Channeled by head to leather
Net bulges again.

Nipping at their heels
Battling midfield general
Little man syndrome?
