Capital Ram raid – League cup final 2007/08

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ramos had declared war
“eleven v eleven”
“It’s a game of 90 minutes”
To separate the boys from the men

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Psychology on the keeper had worked a treat
I for one was never in doubt
Had Banksy returned, many asked
As Robbo staged a one man block out

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And what foolish ploy would lead
To leaving Cole on the bench
It was a case of too little to late
Juande’s grin masked by a clench

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Jenas a picture for offensive football
Dumi, Barmby, Klinsmann, Sheri, Anderton,
Ardiles and his diamonds all over
Read Keane, Berba, Malbranque, Lennon

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Sanchez Pizjuan became Wembley
As the gaffer continued his hot streak
Breathtaking play carving chance after chance
Left Avram’s boys feeling rather meek

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Chimbo’s sub strop was comical at best
Tainio tightening up the wing
Hud as always was a picture of calm
Long live the (Ledley) king

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 A thought for Dawson and O’ Hara
Vital cogs in a well oiled machine
Hurrah to Hutton and Woody
Despite newly arrived to the scene

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So bragging rights go to Kaboul and Zokora
North London connoisseurs
The Ramos factor cannot be ignored
Glory, glory Tottenham Hotspurs
