Redknapp loves us really,
that much is plain to see,
Portsmouth is full of ex-gooners,
he loves us, obviously.
They have rock-solid Lauren,
with the goal within his range.
Today Sol Campbell’s injured
– some things never change.
has paid the price,
for the kind of diving
that’s not too nice.
What a penalty,
van Persie hits the floor,
1-0 to the arsenal,
Fabregas the sniper-man,
he netted next,
a lovely rebound effort,
which can’t be described in text.
Rosicky left James on his backside,
after megging a defender.
After brilliant goals like that,
Portsmouth’s chance looked slender.
Phillipe “Sendimoff” was at it,
again seeing red.
Ran to mark Kanu,

It could have been a goal-fest,
there should have been loads more,
but for Manuel Almunia,
only once he let them score.
