Honours even in “greatest game”

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Liverpool 1-1 Manchester United

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The “biggest game in club football”
Sees the weak bench of a contender 
In the race for derrière splints
United had the subs blockbuster

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Twelve hundred Red goals in the Premier
Giggs crumbles and leaves space free
“Nineteen titles” chant hushed
Five fingered salute and slide from Stevie G

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Reina’s league appearance record
Sixth Red to join the show
Soon a Mexican eluded a Slovak
Poacher’s header from Chicharito

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Le Bron James at Anfield
Miami heat River to Mersey Styx
Still Sir Fergie hasn’t beaten King Kenny
Not Since Boxing Day of eighty six
