    There once was a bug called Corona,
    That caused many games to postpona.
    Juve-Inter for sure,
    Sev’ral other match more,
    Not least of which Samp v Verona.

    There’s players on the pitch,
    There’s linesmen and a ref,
    There’s journalists and TV crews,
    As rightly you’d expect.

    But there are no supporters,
    No cheering, chanting crowd,
    The game’s being p […]

    They thought we were dead and buried,
    Two minutes to go till half-time.
    We’re sure we were dead and buried,
    But there’s always hope where there’s life.

    They thought we were dead and buried,
    Two down, not […]

    Do you remember ninety-five?
    Were you alive in ninety-five?
    Blur had a House in the Country.
    Oasis Rolled with It.
    John Major lived in Number Ten.
    The Beeb had the rights to the Cricket.
    The Pound was […]

    “Success is counted sweetest
    By those who ne’er succeed.”
    And more than most we Blues have learned
    Exactly what that means.

    For when it comes to derbies,
    We rarely come up trumps,
    The Reds are usu […]

    They said we were ungrateful
    When we sacked our Portuguese.
    It wasn’t nothing personal –
    He’d brought us to our knees.

    His string of poor results
    Had us reaching for the Valium,
    So we showed him where […]

    They said we were ungrateful,
    When we sacked Allardyce.
    Now Marco Silva cannot say
    That he’s been treated nice.

    But football is a business,
    For sentiment no room,
    So poor old Marco had to go, […]

    We’re an army blue and white,
    Our hopes are high, our prospects bright.
    On this, another Season’s eve,
    Once more we truly do believe.

    We represent our city,
    Well, half of it at least.
    There is […]

    On the banks of the Mersey there is a divide,
    Two teams with long histories for primacy vie.
    The one that I root for plays in blue and white,
    While the other in red has God on its side.

    There’s a […]

    A new season comes and we’re all filled with hope.
    Hope, hope and the years slip by.
    Soon it is May, and we can but mope.
    Mope, mope as the years slip by.

    Players are bought and players are sold. […]

    They said we were ungrateful,
    When we sacked Allardyce.
    Well, truth be told, we can’t deny,
    It wasn’t very nice.

    But football is a business,
    For sentiment no place.
    So poor Big Sam, he had to […]

    I watched Croatia versus France –
    The Final is a must!
    But all the time kept thinking
    That it could have been us.

    Us out there on that Moscow pitch,
    Us strutting proud our stuff,
    The Trophy giving a […]

    He’s not the only Jordan –
    There’s also Henderson.
    This one’s the lad decked out in green,
    He’s England’s Number One.

    A reassuring presence,
    Between the sticks he stands,
    So far no clangers has he […]

    Napoleon tried in eighteen-twelve,
    But didn’t have much luck.
    Then Hitler swooped in forty-one,
    Yet he too came unstuck.

    Now England’s bound for Russia,
    Though this time there’s no war.
    We’re not […]

    We’re the Mersey Madmen,
    We’re seriously insane,
    ‘Cos we support the Boys in Blue,
    We’ve only half a brain.

    Were we endowed with any sense,
    We’d follow Liverpool,
    But we’re consigned to Everton
    By […]

    The Prodigal Son he upped and left
    For many a long, long year.
    Leaving a void that could not be filled
    Except by a flood of tears.

    Maybe once every Season the Son came back,
    But not in a shirt of blue. […]

    We’re Ronald Koeman’s Army,
    Our time is drawing nigh,
    Our Faith has never wavered,
    Our hopes are running high.

    Ambition? By the bucket!
