Tony ‘Zico’ Kelly (Bolton Wanderers Fc)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football welcomes its battlers
And they more than most fire up the terrace choristers
Honest graft and the steam of sweat wrung out from the hard-won match worn and torn shirt
And that there caustic camaraderie
Imagines Macron as Maracanã
In the heels of Tony “Zico” Kelly
Combative Huyton Blue
With a heart as big as Liverpool
Or should that be Farnworth?
No matter the birth certificate, the Trotters idolise
Gave this battle-hardened Scouse, a cool Brazilian tag
And love the well-travelled bones of their midfield Bolton maestro
Tho’ he’s slimmer now retired!
