Trotters trampled by late Red show

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Reebok welcomed Athens finest son
Greek colossus Kyrgiakos took the field
Twinned Carra at the heart of the rearguard
Whereas Skrtel the enforcer healed

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Came in young Magyar Peter Gulacsi
Troops donned black armbands in honour
On the bench to replace Diego Cavalieri
Who mourned the death of his beloved Father

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Pulsating second half saw the Trotters despatched
Not before a mighty jolt from big Kev
Cut thrust move from the rapier Johnson
As the Red machine upped the rev

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Wanderers defiant, went ahead again
Courtesy owed to Tam Cohen
No relation of course to England’s George
Aim enough to join Bullseye’s Jim Bowen

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Red tide turned when Davis saw crimson
Restart saw the mood turn bullish
Kuyt and the skipper again combining well
Torres levelled with a mighty fine finish

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Time ticks and with less than ten on the clock
Came from 12 yards an inescapable volley
Assisted ably by the brilliant Nando
Stevie thumped the clincher past Jussi
