Gazza

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When you showed me your long pass I thought about total football
You had the awareness of a great skilfull player my dear Gazza
Italy 1990 was the most dramatical event that I could imagine at the time
Suddenly I was the figure who was a devoted fan
of this brave English generation
Total Football- not the dream
Germany were great but Gazza is the star of 1990
We had given all we had
The goals of Lineker against Cameroon
That was just controversial and not sure,
Maybe the penalty was the not right decision
and England was no better against Cameroon in the Quarter Final
But the1990 Semi-Final was epic and Gazza was epic
When you showed us your long pass
We thought about total football Gazza
1990 was the year which is called Your Year,
and we are still there in memories
Heavenly warmth,leads to joy,
the heaven of Italy 1990 was not prepared for tears
The place of Calvary never was justified in 1990
1990 England team was not best England team,
My hero Gazza was
