Anfield Maestros

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Big Clem in 78-79 with ease he strolled
In 42 matches conceded just 16 goals
Phil Neal for cool you coudn’ beat
Safest man on the pitch with the ball at his feet

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Barney Rubble a hero in the jersey of red
Scored winning goals against Roma and Real Madrid
Jocky Hansen shrewd when under fire
A defenders dream best man on your side

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Anfield Iron he was tough as brass
Viera and Keane? They’re not in the same class
Crazy Horse got a taste for the glory
And what a tale it made his European story

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Terry Mac a kirkby lad who earned his spurs
That goal lives forever in pictures and words
Souey was a General and his boots were made of steel
Razor Kennedy a prince one of the finest on the field

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Ronnie (the skunk) whelan gave the pool pride
Whilst Cally was a hero of Shankly’s great sides
John Barnes was electric when he pulled his boots on
Great times were his 87-90 (wish they still went on)

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Keegan was a superstar the apple of Shank’s eye
Dalglish was simply King Kenny best words to describe
Michael Owen scores for fun and he’s a grand number 10
Rushie remembered always for those 4 against Everton

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Roger Hunt a legend when we rose from division 1 to 2
Steve Heigway’s wings a lesson in what a cross should do
Gerrard he is magic and the best is yet to be
As we chase the title that we long for, that wondrous crown nineteen.
