Time for Reflection

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Milestone birthday this week
Not fresh faced nor meek
Not a second thought given.
Cos life is for livin’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Sunday last, time of crunch
QFT, out for lunch
I just tried to forget
For the fear of upset

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I had no need to worry
Texts came in a flurry
Suarez twinkle toes
Befuddled our foes

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Nani’s head precision
Dirk’s second incision
Edwin’s further spillage
Completed the pillage

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 It doth make you reflect
Re-assess, recollect
Takes me back to the day
When my hair wasn’t grey

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 My earliest joy
As a six year old boy
Beat United in style
Went to bed with a smile.



My earliest memory of watching Liverpool is a 3-1 win over Manchester United on the 25th of February 1978 when as a six year old I was allowed stay up for Match of the Day.

This weeks milestone birthday has made me reflect on lots of things and last Sunday brought me right back to that day in 1978 when Souness, Ray Kennedy and Jimmy Case scored the goals that defeated the old enemy.

Same enemy, same result and over 33 years later the same sweet level of satisfaction.

QFT = Quality Family Time.
