Farewell Melwood!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When Shankly arrived in 1959
The pavilion and fields were a mess
Describing it all in his memoirs
As a “sorry wilderness!”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Spotting craters Shankly asked
“Have the Germans been here?”
Superstars have since passed
Without fail, year on year

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Melwood as an institution
A long term vision for Shankly
Five a side games the norm
For a pass and move philosophy

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Adventures aplenty for decades
Within the walls of Melwood
It’s time for new adventures
Kirby is now the hood

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 number7
