Sunderland AFC (Thanks!)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Thanks to all you Mackems
for acknowledging our Justice Campaign.
It’s great to see that you recognise
our lasting sorrow, grief and pain.
Gestures like this bring fans together
as like I’ve said in the past.
‘Hillsborough’ could have happened to anyone of us,
all villains and scum we were cast.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Many genuine fans are forgotten about now,
football’s not the same anymore.
I miss the standing Kop
and I bet you miss the old famous ‘Roker Roar’.
But rivals on the pitch we’ll always remain
and that’s just how it should be
As long as fans never forget
what happened at six minutes past three.
So when you hold up your banner at Anfield
when this new season starts
The applause will thunder down from the Kop
as we thank you with all of our hearts.


Wrote this for the Sunderland fans who have kindly taken part in Liverpools’ peaceful Demo Day this Sat.

Really appreciate your help and support and love the banner!!

Editor: Great sentiment, especially poignant at this time.
Hope you don’t mind, but line structure adjusted to fit page Mike.
Cheers .
