Talking about you in Parma

19febbraio.jpg

We proudly announce that next Tuesday 19th February at 5:45 PM we will be guest of Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs to have a speech about Parma abroad fans, together with Giuseppe De Cristofaro (Parma Calcio 1913 Brand and Digital Marketing), Michele Galli (Museum Association President), Angelo Manfredini (Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs President), Giuseppe Squarcia (Parma Calcio 1913 Supporter Liaison Officer) and Massimo Zannoni, President of Parma Club Mediolanum and organizer of the event, that we would like to thank you for inviting us.

We already knew that, but this is an additional demonstration of interest and openness by Parma town and Parmesan fanbase toward people like you that, even if from far and with obvious distance and language obstacles: follow, support, love Parma Calcio.

If you have been in Tardini lately you surely notice it. Sometimes there could be some understanding problems due to different languages, but if you have the precious chance to get deeper inside the surface, talk to people, share experiences together, you’ll recognize that we are all part of the same yellow and blue Family.

We have the presumption to think that such “kind of magic” is not everywhere and is not for everyone. If you are a Parma supporter you probably didn’t follow the most winning team in football history, nor the one with bigger stadium or fanbase. You just found your cup of tea. Especially from abroad, you can not born Parma fan, nor became. You just discover you are (and probably always has been).

We hope this meeting will be an important step to build an organized, recognized, respected Parma abroad fans network.

Thanks again to Massimo Zannoni and Parma Club Mediolanum for the invitation and to all of you for supporting Parma Fans Worldwide project.

Also Yves Baraye send his message to Parma Supporters from his Instagram profile.

As said this morning, thank you for all, Crusader!

“After three years and an half it is greetings time.

And, believe me, it is not easy to say goodbye to the town that has been my second home. It is not easy to say goodbye to mates and Club. Most of all it is not easy to say goodbye to you fans.

I gave a lot to this town, but you and Parma Calcio gave me more. I grew up as a player, but mainly as a man. I will never forget three promotions, yellow cards for my celebrations, derbies goal and many other moments, This moments will be always in my heart.

Thanks to all Curva fans for you constant presence and most of all for Sunday banner. It has been really touching for me. Thanks also to the Club for these three wonderful seasons.

This is not a farewell, but a goodbye. In some way we will meet.

Grazie Parma.

J’ai une ame de vainqueur quand je tombe je me relève toujours ..Motakh ma ame fit 💛💙”

Thank you, Crusader!

Thanks Parma. After wonderful years reaching almost unbelievable goals I’m starting this new adventure with the desire to give everything. Like I always do. I’m proud of being part of Crusaders history, and proud that the today’s one is a goodbye and not a farewell. Now I start a new adventure, made by battles to win day after day with my new team mates”

Calaiò farewell letter

grazie_arciere_instagam.jpg

Emanuele Calaiò, arciere [archer], left officially the club yesterday to join Salernitana on permanent deal. You probably red our thank you to him, Gianni Munari and Yves Baraye).

He decided to publish a moving farewell letter through ParmaToday.it, that we thanks. Here the (non professional) translation:

Thanks Parma,

you are and always will be my home. Unfortunately the moment I would like arrive as later as possible arrived. After two years of goal, assist, victories and delights shared with mates, Club, with you fans, I have to greet. I do it with my heart in my throat and with a worry: after being protagonist to write Parma history I would like to close the ring and give my contribution even in Serie A. But unfortunately it has not been possible.

Thanks Parma,

you are and always will be my home. Even when I suffered, when we suffered. I know what you felt this summer, I tasted it on myself everyday. It went fine, now – thanks to you that gave me support – I feel like if I get off from a tornado and, with a deep breath, restart to breath and decided to begin again. Unfortunately far from Parma, but in football, like in everyday life, make choices is necessary. And respect them. This, even if it is not my decision, I respect it as I always thank for what did for me, giving me the chance to train until the end.

Since tomorrow a new adventure start. I don’t know if one day we will meet again, maybe with other roles, or as rivals. Never as enemies, this is a promise. Nobody knows what it is going to happen the important is having been there in the moment of need. I am proud of what we did, me,my team mates and you. I bring you with me.

Thanks Parma,

you are and always will be my home.”
