Neville’s Advocate

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The most irritating Red Devil
That thing called Gary Neville
Came to the Scousers to celebrate
They faced each other in mutual hate

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Pulled his shirt and held up the crest
As if to say his United were best
Pent up frustration after Istanbul?
Where his enemy proved so masterful

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 His folly led him to Soho Square
Improper conduct, a charge unfair
Don’t fine or ban old Tweedledum
Leave him to us, our day will come

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Back to Anfield, hope you’re fit
How my sides are going to split
John Lennon said one thing true;
Instant Karma is going to get you



On 22/1/06, Neville’s celebration of a 91st minute winner in the League meeting between Manchester United and Liverpool at Old Trafford resulted in an F.A. Charge. On 30/1/06, the F.A. Cup draw paired Liverpool with Manchester United at Anfield.
