Anfield Is Home

Anfield Is Home

 

Once home for the Blues

Since 1892 home of the Reds

A shrine to football

A cathedral to Kopites

No other ground has so much history

The Kop is legendary

Liverpool’s twelfth man

Many great European nights

Like in 65 against Inter

And that comeback against St Etienne

2005 the semi against Chelsea

The memories are endless

18 League titles

The great teams of the 60’s

The dominant teams of the 70’s and 80’s

The legendary managers

Shankly and Paisley

The legendary players

Liddell, St John, Hunt,

Keegan, Hughes, Dalglish,

Souness, Hansen, Rush,

Barnes, Fowler, Carragher, Gerrard

Too many to mention

Have graced the Anfield turf

The gates of Shankly and Paisley

Protect the sacred ground

With Shankly’s statue watching the Kopites marching by

The news that Liverpool will stay at Anfield

Instead of moving home

Means more history and new memories for this famous ground
