Liverpool V Newcastle FA Cup Final 1974

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Geordie Boys were full of talk
But come the hour they couldn’t walk
For Thommo played the finest words
And Supermac he wasn’t heard

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We closed them down and left them dead
Just chasing shadows all in red
Smithy crossed and Keegan’s boots
Struck hard and nothing McFaul could do

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Then Big Bamber took the stage
With body swerves the second came
Big Alec’s goal offside was ruled
But history shows the goal was true

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We gave the black and white a class
Of football that none have surpassed
A dozen passes Keegan scores
And heaven’s knockin’ at our door

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Shanks he waved up to the Kop
And Coleman’s words in lights they shone
“Keegan 2 Heighway 1
Liverpool 3 Newcastle None!”
