Tranmere Rovers All Time Xl

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In goal there’s Nicko as steady as stone
Swapped blue for white and found a new home
Right back is Yatesy a machine scoring goals
In the Cup he was magic as St Yates Day now known!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 From the youth ranks McGreal a local lad born
Determined and solid for strikers a thorn
Clint Hill was the backbone with passion and fire
Threw his boots to the Kop End when he bid goodbye!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Gareth Roberts a red but when those dreams took flight
He caught a ferry cross the mersey and signed for SuperWhites
Mogsy a legend who could cross like a monk
Fast in his running like a man with three lungs!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Kenny Irons a born leader a Prenton Park Star
Threading balls down the channels with a snake-charmers art
If you needed to find him the Kop End would cry
He’s always in the pub and his name is Kenny Irons!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A talent was Koumas born to wear football boots
Got the crowd off their seats each time he turned to shoot
Passed through defenders like a ghost through a wall
All down Dacre Hill you could hear the SuperWhites roar!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Wee Pat on the left wing his passing pure class
A player of grace on the Prenton Park grass
What he lacked for in height he made up with soul
And his heart gave its all and is measured in gold!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Ian Muir came on a free in Nineteen Eighty Five
And his cross against Exeter kept the Rovers alive
A record of goals but the memories worth more
There may be 2 Ronaldos but there’s only 1 Ian Muir!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Aldo on one leg worth twice those with two
Thunder and lightning he packed into his boots
Quite good for a red team but the Whites saw his best
And he always looked good with the name WIRRAL on his chest!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 John King is the Gaffer, respect he commands
And unlike poor Bob Paisley he has his own stand
He’s up there with Kendall and Busby and Shanks
For his Prenton Park Legacy the faithful give thanks

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 A word for Frank Worthington, memorable goals
Elvis in footie boots pure Rock & Roll
And Birkenhead’s finest the best that there’s been
A local born hero, immortal Bill Dean

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Tranmere Rovers Dream Team that rolls back the years
To the days of the Cup runs and Premier so nears
Their names all deserving, they’d fight for the cause
But there’s room for another, the blonde Ronnie Moore!
