2. Stoke City Home

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Second league game Stoke City at home
Injury ravaged squad cut to the bone
At least Jamie’s playing his four hundredth league game
Never mind injuries he’ll play just the same

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Four minutes in Stevie G in full flow
Sends in a cross to his mate Fernando
Torres controls with immaculate skill
Unleashes a shot, to the reds one nil

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 One goal up though it’s never enough
We need another to finish them off
Forty five minutes Torres fast and slick
Johnson makes it two with a bicycle kick

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Two goals to the good and it’s only half time
The football and passion is so sublime
Keep it up redmen fight to the end
To all of our rivals a message let’s send

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Second half starts just like the first
The boys all playing with a hunger and thirst
Stoke on the backfoot most of the time
The reds trying to break that flimsy back line

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 On seventy eight we at last break their fight
With Stevie G holding the ball on the right
He whips the ball in, the keeper comes out
three nil to the reds a goal for Dirk Kuyt

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Injury time can we get one more
Which one of our heroes could possibly score
A Glen Johnson cross, the defence too slow
A towering header, number four for Ngog

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 A four nil win in our second league game
Keep it up redmen, more of the same
On Monday let’s have another thriller
And take three points off Aston Villa

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 To all Reds fans far and wide
Stand up to applaud our magnificent side
For one of our heroes an extra loud shout
Well done Jamie Carragher four hundred not out

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Dedicated to Jamie Carragher 400 not out

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Tony Stapo 20/8/09
