Havant the boys done well

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 West Leigh’s finest journeyed up for the jolly boys jaunt
For a daytrip to the palaces of Anfield
Billy Gilbert’s paupers had won their right to showcase
On the finest football stage they would flaunt

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Lo and behold; those darned Hawks left behind their etiquette
As the decorum instructions were ignored and ripped
The peers of the realm were given a 45 minute pasting
Someone remind that binman the script

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The dream ends here King Gerrard had proclaimed
In the lead up to the greatest mismatch of all
An aristocratic red whirlwind in the second half
Ensured Beny left with the match ball

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Pacquette hollered as the landed gentry exited
Potter yelped amidst the hullabaloo
Rafa’s upper crust had just scraped through
Averting their own Waterloo

Notes

What a day, what romance!
Training at Carrington (That dratted Fergie)
An Everton signed top in the tunnel
Two goals at Anfield
For sheer excitement, equal footing and romance. absolutely nothing beats the greatest cup comp in the world
