Zola : A legend retires

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hola, Mr Zola
Your career stats, make for impressive reading
But that’s not why, my heart is bleeding
No, for you’ve finally announced your retirement
and with true class, being my edifying requirement
my soul, is rent in two
at the loss of you
a gentleman, of the highest order
the brightest star, whilst blue boy boarder
be it Chelsea, or the Azzuri
you bettered by far, Dixon and Durie
on a par, with Osgood and Nevin
a Holy Trinity – my own true Heaven.


read about his retirement, not 2 minutes ago.
Hope this does him justice.
Just wanted to beat Kevin & Crispin in the tributes stakes!!!!

Gianfranco has just announced his retirement – what a loss to football. He should immediately be made a world ambassador for the game.
