Continuing from last week and a couple of songs done in tribute to a another Man City player.
Who was sadly taken too soon…
Marc-Vivien Foé scored the final goal at Maine Road.
I remember back now how much it was a shock to everyone when we heard the news. Don’t need me to say much more about it, going to c&p what Wikipedia has:
…”Foé’s death caused a profound shock. Numerous tributes to the man’s joyous personality and infectious humour were expressed in the media. Also Thierry Henry and other players pointed to the sky in tribute to Foé after Henry had opened the scoring against Turkey in France’s Confederations Cup semi-final that evening. Many suggestions for ways to honour the life of Marc-Vivien Foé were made after his death: it was suggested that the Confederations Cup and the Stade Gerland could have been renamed after him, and former Manchester City manager Kevin Keegan announced that the club would no longer use the number 23 shirt Foé wore during his successful season there. At Manchester City’s ground; the City of Manchester Stadium there is a small memorial to him in the stadium’s memorial garden, and on the walls of the players’ tunnel are plaques paid for by supporters, with their names, dubbed the Walk of Pride. The first plaque on the wall is for Marc and reads “Marc Vivien Foé – 1975 – 2003”
I’ll do some more of their City stuff down the line, for now I want to highlight the song they did in tribute:Colin Rudd – Marc-Vivien Foe
