After seven long years at Anfield, Djimi Traore might have moved on to pastures new but we couldn't let his leaving pass without bringing to the world's attention some of the best poetry ever written about a Liverpool player.

A cult figure amongst many Liverpool fans, Traore probably inspired more poetry than any other player in the club's long history. Here's just a selection of what some fans on the club's message boards have written about Djimi to the tune of 'That's Amore'. Enjoy.

He wears 21
Please don't go one-on-one
With Traore

Please don't look too surprised
When you're sythed from behind
By Traore

When the ball hits the sky
Or its cleared off the line
That's Traore

If you get round the back
And you're suddenly hacked
That's Traore

Yes his footwork is nice
Just like Bambi on ice
That's Traore

He's a Champions League winner
Sometimes saint, often sinner
That's Traore

But whatever you say
He kept Sheva at bay
That's Traore

He's a European Champ
Unlike Terry or Lamps
That's Traore

Played in our finest hour
Better than Beckenbauer
That's Traore

He'll always be a hero
At Anfield not San Siro
That's Traore

SureShanksRedemption

There's a guy in our team
You all know who i mean
Yes Traore

When he comes out to play
We all sit there and pray
For Traore

As the game goes along
he will do something wrong
That's Traore

But at the end of the day
We just love him that way
Our Traore

He's the guy at the back
Who just loves to attack
Our Traore

He'll be there when we need
Just like Bambi on speed
Our Traore

Should he stay, should he go
I think Rafa don't know
About Traore

But long may he reign
Anfield wont be the same
No Traore

The guys looking quick
With his overhead kick
That's Traore

If he stays he'll be great
He Will score at least eight
Our Traore

Will he shoot, will he score
Or fall flat on the floor
Oh Traore

There's a guy at the back
Who keeps making me laugh
Named Traore

When a player goes down
You just know he's around
Thats Traore

But one night last May
He kept Shevchenko at bay
Who Traore

So let's hope and pray
Raffa sees it this way
Keep Traore

pubmaster

Looks like he's set to stay
Support him all the way
That's Traore

He's had ups and downs
And been a bit of a clown
That's Traore

parryos

Through his gangly long legs,
Goes a few more nut megs
That's Traore

Hear the opposition all cackle
As he fluffs another tackle
It's Traore

But then in May he came good
On a milan player's foot he did stood
Who's that Traore?

Is it an impostor in disguise?
All said about him were lies
Is that Traore?

x-fade

Saved our Skins late in the Day
On the 25th of May
That's Traore!

TheBigJohn

Does he want the pass,
Like a greyhound over grass,
Leggy Traore

He's awful in the air,
Has he got any hair?
Pinhead Traore

He loves the long ball,
So Rafa gives him the call,
Subbed Traore

Scored a belter in the cup,
Another Djimi mess up,
Embarrassed Traore

Shevers bound to score,
Traore saves the draw,
Happy Traore

He's got a dodgy touch,
But we love him very much,
OUR Traore

spanishRmada

Yes we've all had a laugh
At the way he can't pass
Our Traore

But we all love you to bits
And those glorious hits
Oh Traore

Yes T'was the Burnley game
Made us all swear your name
**** Traore

But that's all in the past
We're just having a blast
With Traore

Equinox

You can have a shower
You're not needed this hour
Go Traore

Oh wait, I've changed my mind
Get dressed, quick, get outside
Run Traore

spikeymikeyp

When Raffa first came
He said oh what a name
My Traore

Just look at his skill
He must be from Brazil
Our Traore

We could sell him Today
But the Bitters can't pay
For Traore

So we'll keep him for us
As he's built like a bus
Our Traore

Played Super one day
It was Chelsea away
Yes Traore

And Mourinho did say
He kept Drogba at bay
That Traore

If you sell him one day
You just know that we'd pay
For Traore

But Chelsea your board
Just can not afford
Our Traore

Now Rafa's our man
And he's got this great plan
For Traore

He sends him United On Loan
So the Mancs can moan
About Traore

And when we play them next week
He won't stay on his feet
That's Traore

We'll attack down the right
With no Traore in sight
Where's Traore?

Then it's Liverpool one nil
And Traore's played brill
Thanks Traore.

pubmaster

It would never be dull
Against Milan, Istanbul
With Traore

Shevchenko's shot goal bound
Who's positioning was sound?
That's Traore

When the ball reached the line
Djimi said "Boys thats mine"
That's Traore

Standing firm, standing cool
Gave his all for the Pool
That's Traore

Gold medal round his neck
Who is that? Flipping heck
It's Traore

He's a European Champ
Unlike Terry and Lamps
That's Traore

Yes we give him abuse
When Rafa lets him loose
That's Traore

Do we love him? You bet
And we'll never forget
Our Traore

When he's out on the pitch
Fans shout "Raf, make a switch"
For Traore

But I'm sure you'll agree
He was worth a small fee
That's Traore

He's a Champions League winner
Sometimes saint, sometimes sinner
Our Traore

SureShanksRedemption

At the end of the game
The fans all sing the name
Our Traore

If we've kept a clean sheet
And he stayed on his feet
Yes Traore

But as Rafa might say
If you don't play this way
Dear Traore

If you **** up once more
You'll be right out that door
Poor Traore

pubmaster

Where was Djimi against Brum?
Somethings got to be done
That's Traore

Transfer window now shut
Priceless, this mans left foot
That's Traore

A new contract was signed
Though he's often maligned
That's Traore

He's our defensive cover
Would you want any other?
That's Traore

If you have another verse
You couldn't do any worse
For Traore

So please give it a whirl
For our tall Malian pearl
That's Traore

SureShanksRedemption

At the tempo we play,
We can't stand the delay,
From Traore,

It's passed to left back,
The end of-an attack,
By Traore

Played the ball down the line,
But a fan caught it fine,
Oh Traore

His game is so slow,
Won't you get with our flow,
Please Traore

We can't pass and move,
To the Liverpool groove,
It's Traore

When he gets on the ball,
Worse than me back in school,
It's Traore

But he can honestly say,
He's a hero from May,
Our Traore

When Shevers had struck,
He cleared with some luck,
Our Traore

With Flo and Cisse,
He danced the night away,
Our Traore

Djimi give us a wave,
A Place in Red hearts are saved,
For Traore

spanishRmada

When there's someone to blame
You all know who is named
That's Traore

When the spit hits the fan
He's the man we all pan
That's Traore

Seems to get all the flak
When we're **** at the back
That's Traore

Some would say the flak's legit
Is it all? Most of it
That's Traore

But we're loyal supreme
Whilst our Djim's in the Team
That's Traore

7 years, he's a stayer
Is he a basketball player?
That's Traore

He's a European Champ
Unlike Terry and Lamps
That's Traore

So come on, give a hand
All you reds across the land
For Traore

SureShanksRedemption

Is he better than Agger?
With his confident swagger
That's Traore

It's a Rafa dilemna
He can't play them together
That's Traore

At the end of the day
Some will curse some will pray
For Traore

But for all of the pain
He's won more than the Dane
That's Traore

Does he deserve a recall?
Is his career in freefall?
That's Traore

I will never forget
Djimi guarding our net
That's Traore

If you add to this thread
Please remember he's red
That's Traore

Though there's pain and there's tears
Djimi's lifted Big Ears
That's Traore

SureShanksRedemption

Sure Shanks Redemption,
I'm aware of your intention,
A song for Traore

He gets little credit,
So many lyrics to edit,
For Traore

So how is it going?
Is your musical mind flowing?
For Traore

If you need any help,
Just give me a shout,
A song for Traore

We've made his life story,
Out of nowhere to glory,
Our Traore

Hope the song's going well,
And you're not going through ****,
For Traore.

spanishRmada

People go round the bend
Often get the wrong end
'bout Traore

We all now he's a red
One of ours, enuff said
'bout Traore

Constantly we shall jest
That he isn't the best
Our Traore

Bought in nineteen-ninety nine
We didn't pay much, the fee was fine
for Traore

Lazio and PSG
Not forgetting Milan AC
Wanted Traore

Houllier snapped him up
With this guy, we'll win more cups
Yes, Traore

He captained the reserve side
And played against Hull in 99
Yes, Traore

Spent a season out on loan
Learnt his trade then came home
Our Traore

Fell out of favour with Houllier
Kept in the reserves, which wasn't fair
For Traore

Then along came our Rafa
Made him confident and stronger
Our Traore

Culminated in the game
That ensured affection will remain
For Traore

In Istanbul he made sure
That we kept the 3-3 score
Thanks Traore
