As you may have seen I’ve posted tracks written specifically about a specific player and now I need assistance in selecting the Football and Music First XI…
– I’ve wandered through the F&M archives and found the previous postings about other footballers:
- George Best (winger)
- Gary Lineker (striker)
- Ryan Giggs (winger)
- Sir Bobby Moore (defender)
- Frank Worthington (forward)
- Gus Caeser (defender)
- Paul Gascoigne (midfielder)
- Niall Quinn..? (striker)
This is about something he did off the pitch rather than on.
- Osvaldo Ardiles (midfielder)
- Kasey Keller (goalkeeper)
- Tomas Brolin (striker, then as a got fatter – midfielder)
- Kevin Keegan (striker)
- Roger Milla (forward)
But as you can see I’ve got a bit of a Man City-come January problem (too many strikers and no manager…). Plus a shortage of defenders.
So this is where I need your help:
Do you know of any other songs recorded about football players ?
I’ve got enough about strikers (and will be posting even more soon), but would still appreciate any new suggestions. Right now though I am looking for tunes about anybody who played in the back four.
Although there are two outstanding players in those positions, if there are some more songs about wingers out there it would be great.
I wanted to name an eleven here, but because of the lack of coverage at the back I’ll hold off until I (or you) find something to fill these places. The criteria I’m using for the F&M team isn’t based on the players efforts on the pitch, it’s about the musical one. I will eventually select a team and then post it here, that I think song-wise have made it into the starting XI.
But what do you think ?
Who…again judging it by the tune done about that player… would you put in there ?
