Gerrard 3-1 Napoli

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lower centenary on row nineteen
Seat 0215 amongst Anfield’s crowd
Making my Reds euro debut
I sat upright and so very proud

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Andis hoped I liked Liverpool City
Yasmin saw me on the TV
Linny, Darren and Natha there too
And Lissa sat just ahead of me

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Joyous chorus of the Kop cut short
By Lavezzi “the chubby one”
Screaming Ultras down the Anfield Road end
S.S.C Napoli were having all the fun

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Sky blue bragging rights erupted
Not quite Woy’s original match plan
Still a little bit of fan handbags
“All stay close,” yelled to me Bootle Jan

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 “Attack, attack, attack,” roared the Kop
Stevie’s warm up triggered an earthquake
Then beat De Sanctis in a 50-50
Anfield called for the impending jailbreak

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Ex Red Dossena blasted
“Get up ya quilt,” screamed the chap next to me
Poulsen and Milan were sturdy
Thrust from Meireles and Jonjo Shelvey

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Upended Johnson’s dazzle thwarted
Aronica with the smoking gun
Gerrard with a meticulous spot kick
Reds go ahead two to one

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Lucas the playmaker supreme
After Ngog agog with that miss
Gerrard rubber stamps the hat trick
Dinked sublimely over De Sanctis

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 If there ever was a one man team
It’s the head boy of the Kop yard
The best ever seen at Anfield
Salute the marauding Steven Gerrard

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 UEFA Europa League

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 04.11.10
