Leon Osman wins a header against Swansea

Everton 1-0 Swansea

We came in cold from the rain with the hope that we wouldn’t get wet and that the awnings and shingles and spires and pillars and poles and wind would get in the way of the water coming in sheets.

And sheets, like everyone had said it would, over and over and over. It all happened fast and seemed like it lasted forever so we just kept running and running and hoping to outrun the rain but when we came in we were soaked and sorry and late.

Danny Graham scores for Swansea vs. QPR

Swansea 1-1 QPR; Swansea 1-1 Tottenham

Some unpleasant swarm and verve and shake
and still rollicking, still wandering, still awake,

drawn-on ageing evening, endlessly aware,
drawn back both sides broad, long and flared,

over the same flat field, in moving unchanged,
all square, all done, and all the same.
