Zola Take The Blues To Wemberly….Again!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 How fitting on this glorious occasion
That new Wemberly turf will be graced
By Gian-Franco Zola in a coaching role
Will his magic right foot know it’s place?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 As he sits in the dug-out, the maestro
Will ponder on great days gone by
When the celery rose like wild salmon
We sang his name to North West London sky

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Statesmen,diplomat, bona fide geezer
All names that are lauded and aimed
At a bloke who could tantalize, parylyse, tease yer
Defenders left dazed in his wake

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Four times I watched him at Wemberly
Four victories that still taste so sweet
Those who were there, still get kinda frenzied
When we recall, those two beautiful feet

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Ah Zola we know yer… as a diamond
Who graced our pitch at Stamford Bridge
Tis fitting indeed that a legend like he
Should christen the new Wemberly pitch!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 *************************************************

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 I watched him at a club down the Fulham road
Where there’s a rich oiligarch Russian owner
But for all his wealth and money in barrowloads
He still couldn’t buy the integrity of..Gian-Franco Zola!

Notes

Gian-Franco Zola’s gonna be at the new Wemberly stadiums opening match in his new role as the Italy under 21’s coach.

Could anyone teach those young Azzuri fellas, about the great life that can be had as a professional footballer, better than Gian-Franco Zola?

I don’t think so.

A true blue, highly revered and lauded legend!

The last verse of the poem is a tribute to Zola,as a man of his word, just like Henryk Larssen recently, who had made a promise to his home town club of Calgiari,he would be joining them, at the end of his last season here in London.

Not matter what our club offered, he honored that agreement and left us.

The fans went mad, that he was allowed to leave, so much so that we heard that Abramovitch even tried to buy the Calgiari club, to enable them to loan him back to us, don’t know if it’s true, but a great story, none the less!

Zola and Larssen, two shining lights in these dark days of contracts that are reneged and broken on a whim.
