A Red And Blue Wembley

A Red And Blue Wembley

On a lovely sunny April day the natives of Liverpool descended on Wembley

The prize for the winners a return trip to Wembley in the FA Cup Final

The crowd was colourful the noise was passionate as both teams entered the arena

The crowd was silenced although for just a minute as respect was paid to the 96

Both sets of fans paid a moving tribute to Gary Ablett who was a Red before becoming Blue

The Reds started brightly with much possession

And Spearing went close early doors

But with nerves jangling the Reds’ defence gifted the Blues a chance

And big Jelavic slotted the Blues into the lead

The Blues were bouncing the Reds were stunned

And so the Blues took the lead at the half as the Reds huffed and puffed

But the Redmen came out for the second half with all guns blazing

With Carroll heading narrowly wide

As the Reds attacked and the Blues sat deep

But just as the Blues looked to have stemmed the tide

Distin gifted the Reds an equaliser with a short back pass to Howard

Suarez said thank you very much with a clinical finish

The Reds and the Blues were level but the Red half of Wembley sensed victory

Andy Carroll was eager to become the hero

First he smashed a shot just past the upright

Then he miss-kicked following a goal mouth scramble

But the big man would not be denied

With time running out and the match looking likely for extra time

Big Carroll rose highest to nod the Reds into the final

And break the Blues hearts

It is a long way home for the Blues

But a merry trip home for the Reds
