Torrific!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 London’s East End came out to greet
For a tricky trip to the Clarets Boleyn
Zola’s men not a force to take lightly
Reds would have to dig deep within

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Torres Sanz knocked in a brace
With Dirk Kuyt again hitting the mark
Brave fight back from resilient West Ham
In a thriller at Upton Park

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 New boy Diamanti equalled first with two touches
In form Cole levelled before the interval
Poor Behrami again forced to retire
Clearly stifling a passionate bawl

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Livid Redmen remonstrated the penalty
Happy Hammers kissed the club crest
Diamanti had touched the ball twice
But Marriner rejected all protests

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Pulsating game settled in the last quarter
Another pillaging Johnson raid
Babel chipping, deft, delicate and precise
El Nino laps up the accolade

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Travelling Kop once again break voice
“We bought the lad from sunny Spain”
Stands heave with away fan enchantment
“He gets the ball and scores again”

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 20.09.09 – West Ham 2-3 Liverpool

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Number 7
