Anfield Blues – Liverpool 2-2 Birmingham City

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Mcleish’s men travel up from the Midlands
Kop hammer the Anfield bass drum
Now to reduce the 12 point gap
With a good kick up the Brum

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Unrelenting pressure stirs the hordes
Not that anyone needed any proof
Clinical finish with a far post volley
David Ngog lifting the roof

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But then the wrath of Benitez descends
No known blood ties with the gaffer
Thumped hard by the preaching Christian
Aghast stood his namesake Rafa

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Home crowd go eerily silent
Jerome chooses to hit a cracker
Missing again the spine of the team
And a mega Moneybags backer

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Reds welcome in two icons
Il Principe Alberto Aquilani
Converting the fruits of Ngog’s dive
All rise for the return of the Big G

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Another discouraging home draw
More ambience at a recital
Euro dream all but damned
Is it also goodbye to the title?
