Red Army!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Catalan roadshow had arrived
Deco, Puyol, Eto
A masterful plan Rijkaard had contrived
Giuly, Messi, Ronaldinho

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They came to town amidst much fanfare
But FC Carra and Gerry law await
‘They’re a glorified long ball team’ the coach would declare
Hoping Sir Benitez would take the bait

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Is that a faint tremor we hear reverbrating around Europe?
As Gerry Marsden’s trumpet is blown
Victory pushes the Reds up the slope
You’ll never walk alone

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Has an Anfield defeat been celebrated with such vigour
As the masterful Eider sticks the knife in again
Yes, famous Anfield European nights are again de riguer
But for Europe’s kings there’s no more champagne

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 ‘Bring it on’ screams the skipper as to a wave of joy, the Red Army all succumb
Sir Benitez arise is the heralded announcement!, Athens here we come!
