Pompey V Bluebirds – FA Cup Final 2008

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Not since World War Two had they reached such a height
With Arry at the helm they’d played football to delight

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The South Coast’s finest are the longest reigning ever
Seven years the holders without any actual endeavour

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The team of Barlow Anderson, Parker, Dorsett
Battered Major Frank Buckley to cause an upset

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Jack Tinn’s men tore the Wolves to a shred
The great Stan Cullis, his reputation was left for dead

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 As King George presented to the Scot Jimmy Guthrie
A looming World War ensured it was all over by tea

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Fast forward and no hurrah for Kop king Fowler
As brave Cardiff and Enkleman served up pretty much a howler

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Loovens did provide a worthy magic moment
But the use of his arm just added to the torment

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Watched on by Sir Bobby, the grand sage
Sol lifted high on the majestic Wembley stage

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 As Distin, Krancjar, Kanu, all came of age
Europe gets ready for a Pompey rampage.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Number 7
