Having made into our second FA Cup final with victory over Watford last weekend, Alan Pardew was quizzed about the possibility of the squad recording a song to accompany the occasion, a task which, if Yannick Bolasie’s recent post is anything to go by, is already well underway.
After the current boss’ appearance in a remake of the Dave Clarke Five classic Glad All Over in 1990, he admitted that any song the current crop of players make is likely to incorporate a more contemporary musical style than the FA Cup singles of years gone by.
There has been no official word on the song itself until now, but there can be absolutely no doubt, given the lyrics of the tune featured in the video attached above, that it has been made to accompany Crystal Palace’s presence in the 2016/16 FA Cup final.
Given the broad spectrum of musical tastes that exist across our fan-base, the style chosen by Yannick and co. may not be to everyone’s liking, but at times like this, we’re sure everyone is capable of riding the collective wave of enthusiasm that comes with embracing whatever it is that the players have in mind.
As far as we can tell, there are references to Yannick, Wilf, Yohan Cabaye, Pape Souare and Martin Kelly within the lyrics of the video attached at the top of the page, which would lead to the assumption that almost all of the squad getting an audible shout-out at some point.
If we go on to beat Manchester United in the final, I’ll have it on repeat for the rest of summer as I’m sure a fair few others will too.
