Liturgy of Liverpool Fans on a Big European Evening

Archdruid: We have had a week to gloat.

All: And gloat we did.

Archdruid: Beat Man City 3-0. Best team in England ever? Don't think so.

All: Not as good as the Gunners' "Invincibles".

Archdruid: Not as successful as Liverpool in the 70s and 80s.

All: Not as effective as Fergie's treble-winning....

Archdruid: SHUT UP!

All: Sorry. But you know....

Archdruid: I'm picking up the cricket bat now.

All: Not even as good as Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

Archdruid: Ah, Jose. Where are you now? Some 2nd rate club that's not even in the Champion's League any more this season...

All: Seen better days? Living off past glories?

Archdruid: Oh, I don't know. Still a bit of life in me yet.

All: Not you. Mourinho.

Archdruid: OK. Moving on. Let's get to the Prayer of Hope.

All: Oh God, who gave David the victory over Goliath, and the Maccabees victory over the Greeks, who gave the Israelites victory over Egypt even after he'd pumped all that money into his side, give us victory over two legs over the City. Even if that's 4-4 on away goals. And should we lose, don't let it be 5-0. Amen.
