Portsmouth 1 Liverpool 0 (22nd February 2004)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I remember the days our lads were kings
On football parks across the world
The Kopites had the choice of venues
Exotic nights our flags unfurled

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Beneath the dome of Roman starlight
We stepped out with Angels heaven bound
And on a park they built for Princes
Barney Rubble’s boots were sound

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Men like McDermott ran forever
No blade of grass left undisturbed
Their bootprints spoke of their endeavours
Christ knows it makes today’s result so much worse

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Shanks he shakes his head in heaven
As he looks down on his beloved club
The legacy his passion forged
Lies in pieces, dumped out the cup

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Where are the boys of Fortress Anfield?
Where are the blood and guts we need?
What happened to the Liverpool Way?
That all of us grew up to believe

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Pass and Move the Gospel preaches
Pass and Move the tactics plain
What better men than they to teach us
Who brought glory to the Liverpool name

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Now memories cherished may be a blessing
Though none grow skin and bone to warm
But what’s the future without history’s lessons?
If history’s lessons are just ignored…



today’s result is simply unacceptable.
