Red Armada – Liverpool 2-0 Manchester United

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Back on track, though I’d seriously never stressed that much
Protest boos would very soon change to cheers
Torres eased the pressure with a sublime strike
To end the worst spell for 22 years

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Beach balls hurled onto the turf moments before kick off
Kop too let loose their salvo moments later
5th defeat would be the worst run for 56 years
And the fallen hero now branded a traitor

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Whilst Psycho Vidic completed his hat trick
Masch also shelved for being too plucky
Steel aplenty as Chelski’s lead cut to six points
Whereas Carra was indeed very lucky

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Pre-match disapproval vented at Hicks and Gillett
Gerrard’s injured groin added to the dismay
Devils stopped from reclaiming top spot
With a most dazzling and fervent display

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Cue to plan United encircle Andre Marriner
Remonstrating two feeble penalty appeals
In the 65th Yossi slips in to Torres who turns Rio
Rising shot sends the Kop head over heels

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Old hero Owen abused from all four corners
Amphitheatre converts to a cauldron of abuse
Is this another stroke from the wily Taggart?
But too difficult to ignore the howls and boos

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Walk on, walk on! Gerry Marsden rings out true
What’s this an assist from Lukas Leiva?
Deep into what’s now billed United time
Goal machine Ngog slots past Van Der Sar

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Cantona masks turn bitter and ugly
Anfield combat zone exhausted and charred
Perfect for the Gaffer’s 200th game in charge
All stand together and hail the Spaniard
