Regal Reds – Liverpool 4 – 0 Real Madrid

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Twas a night of glory for the soccer afficionado
Rare moment as Rafa’s offensive set Anfield aglow

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 With the league title hopes all but laid to rest
Nought at Stanley Park but to pit wits with Europe’s best

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Jovial Kop hordes on tenterhooks savoured their Brie
Whilst beholding the annihilation of the Real family

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Anticipating a Real backlash, would cautious Rafa dig a moat?
Last minute mind change led to a wild lunge for the throat

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Nine loyal soldiers bolstering El Torres and Gerrard
Adrenalin drenched powerplay led by the old guard

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Uproarious Spanish Evertonian knocked off his high throne
And each imperial Red will now never walk alone

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Fever pitch hits the Kop and upped is the crescendo
With Real devoid of a Puskas and Di Stefano

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Etched into the annals none will forget this colossal meeting
Juande’s mighty troops just took one hell of a beating

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Number 7
