Every football club has a legendary player
and they don’t have to be a household name
but to the fans that player was just special
because he did it all for the love of the game.

A legend is sometimes just a real character
that’s why at Coventry we all loved Micky Quinn
fans would shout “who ate all the pies?”
because Micky was far from svelte or thin.

Some legends only ever play for one club
like Preston’s wing wizard Sir Tom Finney
that’s why they can get honoured with a statue
for all their devotion and true loyalty.

Managers can be legends as well
like Bobby Robson, Jock Stein, Sir Alf Ramsey,
then there are those who are above legendary status
like Brian Clough and Liverpool’s Bill Shankly.

So as long as we have Football we’ll have legends
one could even be playing for your club today
and you can tell your grand kids in the future
that he was an even better player than Pele !
