Balloon punctures Red march – Sunderland 0-1 Liverpool

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Life proved a beach for the men from the Mersey
Out to prove they’re not a two man team
Reds flopped at the Stadium of Light
As 47,000 Black Cats took home the cream

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Darren Bent did his prospects no harm
Ex Spur on a charge to enthral
Red hurls a round object on the grass
Thus the winner glances off a beach ball

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 With United heading the table
Anceloti’s men dropped three points
Devoid of injured Gerrard and Torres
The boys still managed to disappoint

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Superfan Neil Wilkinson facebooked me
“Played off the park,” his signature tune
“You’re not singing anymore,” was the chant
“Liverpool’s best player was the balloon”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Rafa refused to cite ‘bad luck’
Still the goal was somewhat absurd
Dubious one by Bent or balloon
Were deflated but still undeterred

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 17.10.09
