Football Holy Trinity

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football loves its trinities
And like the Holy Ghost
Always feels more at home
When the other two are close

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Hansen, Souness and Dalglish
Or the 3 Jocks as they’re known
Leaped right over Hadrian’s Wall
And made Liverpool their home

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Henry, Viera, Pires
Wenger’s football musketeers
Giggsy, Keane and Scholes
Fergie’s northern cavaliers

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Kendal, Ball and Harvey
The School of Science not of chance
Maradona, Luck, and the Hand of God
Led the lions a merry dance

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Peters, Moore and Hurst
Owned swinging London like Kate Moss
Whilst Charlton, Best and Law
Showed Benfica who’s the boss

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Bremner, Clarke and Giles
Don Revie’s crew of steel
Whilst Stein had Lions of emerald gold
In Johnstone, Murdoch and McNeil

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The white arrows of Real Madrid
Like angels flying free
They had Gento and Di Stefano
And with Kopa that made 3

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Ball, Lee and Summerbee
At Maine Road they were Kings
Whilst Deyna, Gadocha, Lato
Brought defences to their knees

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Smith, Mackay, Norman
The glory boys of Spurs
Cunningham, Regis, Batson
The Baggies favourite words

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Rapinoe, Morgan, Lloyd
Gave the women’s game its swag
Trump hoisted by his own petard
Beneath the rainbow flag

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Yeats, St John and Cally
In Shankly’s vision they all shared
Pele, Jairzhino, Tostao
The wonders of the world

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Van Basten, Gullit and Rijkaard
Dutch masters on the ball
Puskas, Hidegkuti and Czibor
Perhaps the most magnificent of all.
