Double Giovanni in the air

Little by little, Parma is jumping into podcast/radio landscape. After the milestone Mani Djazmi “World Football” dedicated to the Resurrection of Parma, recorded in the end of 2018, this week two important podcast talked about Gialloblù and in both of them Crusaders voice has been Giovanni Dougall, founder of Solo Parma (website, Instagram, Twitter)

Giovanni was interviewed in Episode 13 of Calcio Connection, a podcast about italian football co-hosted by Alex Donno (sports radio host in Miami) and Jerry Mancini (writer for TheLaziali and World Football Index) about our 2019/20 season and recent years. You can listen to Calcio Connection on Apple Podcast, Google Play, Spotify and follow their tweets on Twitter.com/CalcioConPod

Our Scottish fan was also the protagonist of brand new podcast about abroad fans called Far Away Fan Pod, that we talked about during past days. In his episode Giovanni talked more intimately about himself and the growing of his Parma passion, started with Buffon and encouraged by Alessandro Lucarelli. Here a resume of the contents: http://farawayfan.com/podcast/episode-4-giovanni-parma/

Take your time and listen to it, we are sure many of you will recognize themselves in his words. Don’t miss it: www.FarAwayFan.com, Twitter @FarAwayFanPod, Instagram @FarAwayFanPod

Listen to both and then write us if for you it is time to think about a Parma Calcio Podcast. We always look for suggestions and contributors.

There are friends

We translate and publish the letter that Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs just sent together with a donation to Assistenza Pubblica di Parma. Proud to be, as Official Parma Fans Club, member of Centro Coordinamento. In WikiParma section yo can read our deepening on Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs.

There are friends that, as volunteers since always, every day, continually, are servicing Parma town and province […] for every need that is related with our Parmesan people health. They are the guys of Assistenza Pubblica di Parma, that are at our side in Ennio Tardini Stadium as first aid during Parma Calcio matches.

We always supported them, sometimes with important donations, like when we recently bought a fully accessorized ambulance, for the big relationship they created with Parmesan people.

In this moment, In which these friends of us are facing the bigger health emergency in last decades, Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs decided to be once again by their side donating them 5000 euros.

This venture, like the donation of 25.600 euros to the Parma Hospital, was possible thanks to the support of the big Parma Family

Helgi one of us

This is not a breaking news since we already talked about Liechtestein National Football team Manager Helgi Kolvidsson that is a long time Parma fan. The news Is that we had the chance to meet him and give him the membership card of our Parma Calcio Official fan club.

We are very proud of having the chance for a meeting with such a kind person and great football professional and we really hope to meet Helgi again in Tardini.

Thanks, Helgi!

Tanti Auguri Parma

We are proud to be part of this collaboration that put together Il Plin and Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs for the realization of a “Merry Christmas” video, directed by Davide Fantuzzi.

We wanna thank you a lot all the crew: Angelo and Coordinamento people, Alessandro “Il Plin”, Davide “Stanley”, Gabriele, Rulli from Parmagiani Indonesia and, of course, beloved Raffaella Carrà.

Here is the original song and the Plin lyrics so that you can practice your italian and sing it in front of your family during Christmas holidays. Don’t be shy, you did something bigger one year ago, don’t you remember? Here is a resume.

TANTI AUGURI PARMA [Best Whishes Parma]

Se per caso cadesse il mondo tu ci troverai sempre qua [If one day the World collapse, you will find me always here]

Siamo quelli sullo sfondo dalla D alla serie A [We are the ones on the background, from Serie D to Serie A]

La mia vita è tormentata , misto di gioie e di guai [My life is anguished, a mix of joy and pain]

Ma tra un urlo e una sciarpata sai non ti lasceremo mai [but between a scream and a sciarpata* we will never leave you alone]

Ma girando tanti stadi io mi sono convinto che [touring so many stadiums I realize that]

Non c’è odio, ne tristezza quando in campo il Parma c’è [there is no hate nor sadness when Parma is on the pitch]

Com’è bello tifar Parma dalle Alpi in giù [How beautiful is it to support Parma from the Alps going down]

Com’è bello tifar Parma lo sai anche tu [How beautiful is it to support Parma you already know it]

Tanti auguri A chi tante gioie ci dà [best wished to who give us so many joys]

Tanti auguri Di Natale e Capodan [Merry Christmas and happy New Year]

Com’è bello tifar Parma dalle Alpi in giù [How beautiful is it to support Parma from the Alps going down]

Andasse in Europa puoi partire anche da più in su [If he goes in Europe you can even start more northern]

E quando perde lo sai che facciam? [And when he loose you know what we do?]

Ripensiamo ai cubetti Che non ridono mai… [We think about cubetti**, that never smile]

*sciarpata is when all the curva exhibit the scarves together

**cubetti are Reggiana/Reggio Audace fans: “cubetto“, little cube or “testa quadra“, square head, are their nicknames. Also known as “cugino triste“, sad cousin, ’cause they never have a joy.

Hands Up for Solo Parma

Since 2013 there is a Scottish based point of reference for all English speaker Parma supporters, long before us and Parma Calcio social accounts: Solo Parma.

Behind it, Giovanni Dougall, a lifelong fan that we had the pleasure to meet in person many times. We suggest you all to follow his channels and to get in contact with him, he will be surely happy to answer (if he is not training for the next marathon).

Let’s build a worldwide Parma fans network together.
