On the night of Saturday March the eleventh
The Liverpool team were sent to heaven
By a goal in a million from Alan Ball
As the boys in Blue stood ten feet tall
Cassius Shankly was heard to say
The scoresheet should never had read that way
The game had the makings of a tie
A travesty of justice was his cry
Milne made a blunder whilst back in defence
Which gave Husband the chance to use his sixth sense
As he challenged fat Lawrence fate took its course
And Ball broke the net with phenomenal force
Now the dust has settled at Goodison Park
The lights are out and all is dark
Whilst the TV screens at Anfield sway
The night we beat them both home and away.
RIP the Golden Vision.

It was great night, and forever after Shankly was known as the 'Lord Travesty of Justice'. Bally's goal was brilliant, but I remember a young John Hurst played a 'blinder'.
Great memories of the Golden Vision era.

I remember the poem doing the rounds soon after that memorable match and upsetting redshite fans particularly as it scoffs at 'Shanks' and I just memorised it since. Sad, but that's what Everton does to you, I suppose.
I would love to know who wrote it.

These shirts could either be kept by the club as a lasting memory to Alex, or auctioned off for various Charities. Just a nice touch to say goodbye to one of our favourite sons.

Touching and evocative.
