A Poem For Arsenal

                  Kopites Unite
Welcome all kopites for what it is worth,
It’s Liverpool v Arsenal let’s don our red shirt,
The history of these games is top of the bill,
With memories of top games that gave us a thrill,
Fowlers quick hat trick, what a great day,
Mellor with a rocket, what else can you say,
An FA Cup Final, Micheal Owen so brave,
With Henchoz our hero, it was a top save,

Our record at Anfield sees us on top,
But this one is different it’s Wenger v Klopp,
The gunners are flying, they’re top of the league,
This game will be exciting, so full of intrigue,
Our injuries are chronic what else can you say,
With hamstrings still snapping down Melwood way,
Sakho is back to give us some hope,
But with so many injured how can we cope,

Last time out we drew nil all with Rodgers still in place,
We played so well at the Emirates that day the home team had to chase,
This is going to be tough kopites, our lads must put in a shift,
But I feel we’ll need the rub of the green for this if you catch my drift,
Wenger has the gunners playing with style and verve,
Our players will have to grind out the win that they deserve,
Klopp is a top coach but must believe he’s cursed,
With the medical bay at Melwood shortly fit to burst,

Wenger will smell blood their victory is in sight,
He figures liverpool are about to have a very tough night,
But Arsene don’t be foolish to spoil your big plan,
You forgot about us kopites the famous twelfth man,
Many have come here, for victory they were set,
They got rattled by the wall of sound on the pitch they met,
THIS IS ANFIELD, our bastion of steel,
Our temple of football, that Bill Shankly made real,

Kopites know passion, it’s part of our soul,
The kop is in full voice right behind your goal,
You won’t find it easy, I promise this will be tough,
When ye reach the dressing room ye’ll really have had enough,
THIS IS ANFIELD, our field of dreams,
A place that strikes fear into oppisition teams,
You won’t find it easy, in Klopp we trust,
Expect a red dawn rising, Victories a must….YNWA
