Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now

 28 Comments: First  |  Last

Just a bit of fun in line with the festive season and making some progress with various bottled Chrimbo gifts.

The new year is almost here. Time to look ahead with optimism and make some plans.

Given our recent "surge" up the table and an unbeaten run of at least 2 games, I just wondered what song will sum up the next 5 months for the Mighty Blues?

Will it be "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now"; "Glory Days"; "That's Entertainment"; or the dreaded "Downbound Train" or "Road to Nowhere"?

I'm an optimist so my pick is "Vertigo" with a Donovan-inspired 6th place finish, just edging Liverpool out to 7th ? and the sack for King Kenny by May.

Fear the Blues...
Fear the Mighty Blues.

Why not just buy or download Neil Young's "On the Beach" album?
Side 1
"Walk on" (dedicated to our centre forward?)
"See the sky about to rain"( for al the doom-mongers)
"Revolution Blues" (we live in hope)
"For the Turnstiles" ( dedicated to us)
"Vampire Blues" (dedicated to whoever you choose)

Alternatively, go straight to the final track - "Ambulance Blues"! This song contains lines that might be heeded by management, Board, players or supporters who can't listen to constructive criticism - "There ain't nothin' like a friend who can tell you you're just pisin' in the wind".
Best wishes all round
