Old Blue Union

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It was so long ago
and my football team was almost the Greatest Escape maker
I was waiting every day to see their match
The waiting was long
The structure of that team
was something beyond the possible wonder
They had all that they should have today,
their evolution was great

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Evertonians will say
that it was our 1994 Great Escape Team
who were two goals down
and they secured the Premiership status with a 3-2 victory
The question was not about their best ever Escape,

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The other followed in 1998
The goal grasping team is one moral force
and it is at the same time disaster

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 1994 and 1998 were the years
when Everton survived in the very last games
They were almost relegated in 1998
,Chelsea saved them beating Bolton
,the seconds left, Everton drawing 1-1
Chelsea rescued Everton in 1998
as they achieved victory over Bolton
rescued by Chelsea …..Everton,

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Everton were the Great Escape team in the 1990s
and now Moyes’ Everton are good
Everton with Moyes is facing Chelsea
the team who rescued them in 1998,
to try to lift their 6th F.A Cup
and try to lift Cahil to the stars and Moyes to glory

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Chelsea have suffered a lot already,
Will they comfort their fans with this F.A Cup?
I like wonderful Foootball
and my prediction for Everton v Chelsea game is
Moyes can produce one great escape game
whoever believes in that will see
Going into extra-time after trailing by two goals to One
a late extra-time goal

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Chelsea can do much more,
They can score 5 or 6 goals at Wembley
And Everton can score 4 or 5
but it can be only draw
I wouldn’t like to see drama though,
I belive that Chelsea deserves something
I also believe Everton is the team
who will return to Merseyside with the Cup
Everton won it in 1906
Everton won it in 1933
And Everton won it in 1966
and in 1984 -George Orwells’ 1984,
Everton won it in 1995,
and will challenge in 2009,

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Don’t forget
This is the F.A Cup Final
between two blue teams
