You’ve got to be in it to win it!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Premiership is up and running
Like groundhog day we all return
To moan and groan about the prices
It seems as fans we never learn
Ah well it’s for the glory moments
Silver cups and titles won
God loves a trier I dont dispute
But all 3 points mean much more son!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 So Mighty Reds are off to La France
Exotic Monaco for sure
Where CSKA Moscow take the field
A miracle the half time score?
Ah well now Istanbul was special
But nestles in the arms of past
You’re only known by present deeds
And if you won your last match!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Red Sea rolls on e’re with passion
Cheers the lads and raise the roof
Come on you Mighty Reds of Anfield
Who cares if it’s “only the SuperCup”
The ghosts of Shankly Paisley Fagan
Stand on Heaven’s Terrace proud
And tho’ they live in paradise
They long to join the Anfield crowd.



from Liverpoolfc.tv:

” Rafael Benitez has no intention of lowering the stakes as Liverpool go in search of more silverware in the UEFA Super Cup Final against CSKA Moscow tonight.
While critics view the Super Cup as nothing more than a glamorous friendly the Reds manager insists it is a prestigious honour to win and that his team will be going flat out to bring the trophy home.
Speaking from Monaco ahead of the game, he says: “This is a trophy I value. For a big club like Liverpool, every trophy should be valuable. That is why we’re in football. To win competitions.
“History remembers champions and trophy winners. For us, this could be our second trophy in a short space of time and that’s what you’re remembered for.”

Come on you Redmen!
