The ‘Pool and Monaco 15/4/04

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The mighty Reds
Enter their Cathedral.
The Anfield roar
Emanating from the mouths of the faithful
Swamps the players’ senses.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Scouse red
Against Monagasque white
On the Anfield green
Under a darkening Lancashire sky.
Let battle commence.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Twenty-one minutes
Monsieur Cissé strikes
A wonderful triumvirate goal.
With Garcia nearly making it two
In stoppage time.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Eighty minutes,
How did Garcia miss that?
Eighty-four minutes
And the faithful
Cheer for Baros’ goal.


For my son in law Andy

(And Parry Maguire)
