    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.

    Tradition? We’ve tons of it!

    What does the game of football teach?
    Smile when you win, and accept defeat.
    You should not grumble, bleat, whinge or complain,
    Cry “It’s not fair, let the match be replayed!”

    Farage, Gove, Johnson and Stu […]

    Who topped the League last autumn?
    Who tops the tree today?
    Which team sits proud atop the perch
    This merry month of May?

    Not Chelsea, Spurs or Arsenal,
    Not Liverpool, Man U,
    But some upstart Midland outfit, […]

    Economics A-Level, pretty basic stuff:
    When demand for goods is strong, prices soon go up.
    If supply exceeds demand, or demand tails off,
    Sure as night doth follow day, prices quickly drop.

    Certain things we […]

    If you earn your living selling blow-up Spitfires,
    If you own a retail outlet or a pub,
    And were counting on a football feelgood factor
    To set your till a-ringing for a month,
    Then most likely you’ll be feeling […]

    What air shall I breathe?
    No choice about that – air Genoese.
    But what shall I speak – Italian or English?
    Native or learned tongue? Confusing business.
    Reading material – Shakespeare or Dante?
    Fancy a tippl […]

    We’re Rob Martinez’ Army,
    Throughout the Land well-known.
    Our Faith is granite, adamant,
    About that make no bones.

    A Football Club, no brand, are we,
    Worldwide is our renown –
    On bark of trees across the […]
