Whipped scream at the Cottage – Fulham 3-1 Liverpool

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Trick or treat time in the Capital
Craven provides an eve of fright
Red trip down South for All Hallow’s Eve
Jack O’ Lanterns in the stands shine bright

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Duff cross begins Snap Apple Night
Zamora drives home the pumpkin
Ghouls in Johnny Haynes screech and cackle
El Nino’s buckshot silences the din

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Erik the Viking turns Grim Reaper
Thump before Degen saw Red
Crimson mist as Carra hits the shower
Dempsey seals it on the Festival of the Dead

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Fifth loss one hell of a haunted hayroll
Garlic necklace to ward off the rotting?
Hodgson the warlock hit the hammer with force
How Wolfman Gerrard must be hissing

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Mr Maudes must have rued a few black cats
Missing Johnson, Aurelio, Skrtel
Further weakened with Lyon in mind
Torres sub was from the paranormal

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Gaffer reaches for the ghoul aid
“Boo” scrawled on a discarded ticket stub
“Grave problem,” the minority shriek
Positive still remain his fang club

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Sure enough Rafa will raise the spirits
We’re surely not out by a long sight
Steadfast in the Anfield hotseat
With him it was always love at first bite
