The mother of all title deciders – Anfield 89

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This one would be for the Hillsborough dead
As all of football stood united with the Red

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Close em down versus pass and move
A match that would unquestionably raise the roof

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A heaving Anfield glowing in victory neon
In anticipation of Stroller’s red and white battalion

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 For Graham’s starlets would be calling home to mum
There was no doubt as to what would be the outcome

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Not the slightest trepidation as Smudger draws first blood
Kenny’s legion would render the Gunners season a dud
As the young pretenders would be bought down with a thud

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 There’s still no fluster as Rocky begins to sway
Lukic, Davis and Rico wished they could always play away

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So too do O’Leary, Bould, Winters and Dixon
It’s a little too early though to do the Merson

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 As the double looms, “tighten up” the Kop demand
Due to Adams routinely patrolling the bank of England

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 One minute growls Macca as Aldo becomes lone attacker
For North London, the seasons been one hell of a cracker

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 As Brian Moore utters those never forgotten words
“It’s up for grabs now” the Gunners are spurred

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 “And Arsenal come streaming forward” the ball is launched back
“in what will surely be their last attack”

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 “A good ball by Dixon, finding Smith,”
“To Thomas, charging through the midfield,” he must act forthwith

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 “It’s up for grabs now!”
The deranged Mooro takes a bow

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 Thommo cocks as a despairing Houghton lunges, to whom belongs glory?
The most furious finale, the rest as they say is history

Notes

In my recurring dreams he misses!
