Aquilani rocks Pompey: Liverpool 4-1 Portsmouth

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Cue disbelief as Rafa ventured to win
With panache and plenty of style
Red Royals moved steadily back to fifth
No caution just Rafa’s guile

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Floodgates burst just after mid point
Double error by reserve Ashdown
Frail clearance and dawdled too long
Torres bought down the whole town

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Barely two minutes and advantage doubled
Babel beat the marker to score
Old boy Finnan skinned with ease
Torres orchestrating the Red encore

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Anfield distinctly hushed
Peculiar half and then the banks broke
El Principe’s first goal in English football
Roaring applause erupting at a stroke

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Aquilani then turned architect
Flawless pass to set up four
Emblematic finish from Nando
Pompey sent through the trap door

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Reina lamented a clean sheet
Belhadj tapping a consolation reward
Reds discover their bite and tackle
Just in time for Old Trafford
