Am I Really Seeing This?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I turned up early for the match one day
And stared out at the pitch
In the days before Abramovich
We were not exactly rich
Zola,Vialli, Gullitt
Are they really playing here?
I’d ask myself these questions
Had I been on the beer?
Sexy football was in evidence
Just off the Fulham Road
As the wee man from Sardinia
With class would just explode
I’d pinch myself to just make sure
All this was happening now
As the three of them ran out on to the pitch
I’d just go sort of WOW!!!



I thought I was having a dream as did a lot of other shedheads when the team turned out with these three in it!

We used to see them on Channel 4’s fab Football Gazzetta Italia every Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon, when all of a sudden they were here turning out for us in West London!

A dream come true for the purist!
