MO2H 4: Liverpool vs Southampton

Match of Two Halves returns after a week’s break, just like the Premier League. We don’t actually time our holidays around the fixture list – the FA Cup break just happened to coincide with a lovely weekend away with friends in Lisbon, and our reaching our the monthly limit for free podcast hosting. Anyway, like Liverpool and Tottenham, our European adventure is over and we’re back to concentrating on the Premier League. This week we cover football news, trivia and games, along with a focus on the battle between Liverpool and Southampton, who are at the time of writing both still in contention for the Champions League positions.

“Brendan and the Reds”

Hey fans, Liverpool forever
We all love the team and so we think we’re something special
We’re the best fans… you’ll never walk alone
You’re gonna hear us sing at Anfield or have a moan

Say, Can and Moreno, have you seen them yet
Skrtel and Mignolet, Ibe-Ibe-Ibe-Ibe and the other Reds
Oh, Balotelli, Markovic
Oh Brendan, he’s really keen.
On Sterling, Lovren, Henderson
Allen, Sturridge and Coutin-ho
Be-Be-Brendan and the Reds

Hey team, you act like it’s a given
You deserve to be the champions
But you mope around like victims
Just feeling sorry for yourselves
It’s no surprise that Anfield’s got so many empty trophy shelves

Say, Can and Moreno, have you seen them yet
Skrtel and Mignolet, Ibe-ibe-ibe-ibe-ibe and the other Reds
Oh, Balotelli, Markovic
Oh Brendan, he’s really keen
On Sterling, Lovren, Henderson
Allen, Sturridge and Coutin-ho
Be-Be-Brendan and the Reds

Brendan, Brendan and the Reds
Brendan, Brendan, Brendan, Brendan and the Reds

original song and music by Elton John and Bernie Taupin (“Bennie and the Jets”)

“Hey Dude”
Hey dude, don’t take it bad
Though it’s sad and you are dejected
Remember it’s happened to you before
Leaving you sore, cause you’ve been rejected

Hey dude, of course you’re scarred
It’s a hard thing to get over
Being dumped at the age of fifteen
But you’re now thirty three, so accept that it’s over
And if you feel like giving in, hey dude, begin
To seriously explore it – quitting’s viable
You know you could be making your mark at Villa Park
If only you weren’t still in denial
La la la Lambert, la la la la

Dejan, don’t get too down
There’s still Russell Brown, your fashion label
So what if you’re benched on every match day?
Stand up, walk away, take a seat at your sewing table

Sew up some hems, and take seams in, Dejan, begin
Your second career as a designer
And though you once played some football, Dejan, that’s all
Gone – your Liverpool role is pretty minor
La la la Lovren, la la la la

Hey dude, don’t feel ashamed
Though your name’s mud at Southampton
Remember you made a transfer request wasn’t that for the best, now isn’t it
Better better better better better better, oh
La la la Lalalana, Lalalana, hey dude

original song and music by John Lennon and Paul McCartney (“Hey Jude”)

“We’re in the Money”
We’re in the money, we’re in the money
We’ve got some great young players, and we always sell ’em on
Financial outlook is pretty sunny
Our players go to rich teams and we replace them for a song

There was a hefty price tag to bag Luke Shaw
We bought a bargain Bertrand – a profitable trade, millions made

We’re in the profit, we’re rich as chocolate
Don’t flash it – cash or stash it, in case a rainy day comes along
Don’t flash it – cash or stash it, in case a rainy day comes along

We’ve won the bingo, in the transfer window
Cause our best players say they want to go away
Not because of football, just for your info
Cause they care less about their playing than their pay

Lallana, Lovren, Chambers, don’t be strangers, so long
Why, hello Alderweireld, Tadic, Clyne, we’ll do just fine

We’re in the money, and ain’t it funny
They said that we would struggle but instead we’ve proved them wrong
They said that we would struggle but instead we’ve proved them wrong

original song and music by Harry Warren and Al Dubin (“The Gold Diggers’ Song (We’re in the Money)”)
