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.

Darren one of us

This is the part of football we like the most: meeting good people.

Thank you to Darren Bentley, Burnley Football Club Media Manager, that agreed to kid with us and took a pic with our Hawaiian style holiday hat.

The story behind this pic?

As you know, we have been in Burnley last August to follow friendly match in Turf Moor and met many abroad fans there – read the post “About Turf Moor, cricket and relatives” – receiving a great welcome from Clarets fans.

We started a Twitter chat with Darren after that he posted a picture of him and his colleague, the commentor Phil Bird, with an Hawaiian style Burnley shirt during the match between Burnley and Parma, so that we decided to ship them our Hawaiian style hat.

It was a way to say thank you to Burnley people and to express the wish to meet them again on the field, who knows, hopefully not for a friendly match.

We wait for you in Tardini. You’ll be welcome.

…and of course, if you want to improve your summer holiday wardrobe you find Burnley FC Holiday Shirt at this link. For PFW hat just have to start a Twitter chat.

Parmagiani never stop

A quick, late post on Parmagiani National Gathering that will take place today and tomorrow in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Massive good luck for a great meeting and we really hope to be there one day to celebrate with you next Parmagiani anniversary.

Thanks Abdul, Triddy and all the guys and girls that are traveling from all over Indonesia to meet together and celebrate their friendship and football passion.

Travelling Parmigiani: Alessandro in Stamford Bridge

Alessandro AKA Il Plin, sent us this pic from Stamfort Bridge where he could enter due to low security controls and celebrate our salvation, in fact everyone in London is focused on Europa League Final today.

Before he will be arrested we have to confess that he was there couple of weeks ago with all the authorizations and that he also met legendary Gianfranco Zola during his staying in UK.

We take this chance to send to Magic Box our bigger “Good luck” for tonight match.

Fans meeting in Hong Kong

These are the kind of ventures we are more proud of: demonstrate that is possible to be rivals on the pitch but friends outside. Football is both, rivalry and friendship, a good reason to aggregate people and know each other in order to respect each other.

Parma Fans Worldwide Greater China Division, together with Fiorentina Supporters in Hong Kong, is going to organize a meeting to watch the match together next Sunday 19th May.

Besides of the meeting there will be a mini football shirts exhibition with almost 20 jerseys form different eras by Parma and Fiorentina, thanks to Roger Kwan, the Fiorentina shirt owner and member of Fiorentina Supporters in Hong Kong which take part to the exhibition.

Magic Box has a message for you

All of you already know we are about to meet UK Parma fans in London next Monday to watch together Bologna vs Parma in Golazio bar59 Camberwell Road, London SE5 0EZ www.golaziolondon.com – free entry, but confirmation is appreciated at info@parmafansworldwide.com

What you did not know is that there is a special guest that we invited and that would have been with us if his duty with Chelsea wouldn’t bring him in Boston right after the Leicester match on Sunday.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Gianfranco Zola, Magic Box, has a message for you.

Bus, Train or… plane?

pic from www.boysparma1977.it

Parma will face Bologna in Dall’Ara stadium on Monday 13th at 7 PM CEST and we already published tickets info.

What we still didn’t do is to inform you on all the ways you have to follow the match together with other Parma fans.

First option is bus with Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs:cost is 35 euro for CCPC members (ticket + travel) and departure time is 330 PM from Tardini.

Ultras Boys Parma 1977 group is organizing a travel by train leaving from Parma station at 447 PM with train “regionale veloce 11545” and with tickets to by independently.

Third option is one that involves us personally and is to catch a flight to London and join us in Golazio bar – www.golaziolondon.com – where we are organizing the first Parma Fans Worldwide meeting in London. We don’t suggest specific flights but just to be there by 6 PM (London time), match starting time. Bring your jersey, your scarf, your flag and your Parma (or Calcio) lover friends and join us there.

We will be there since 5/530 PM and until the latest beer possible. Contact us by whatsapp or email at info@parmafansworldwide.com to confirm. Entrance is free but better if we have a quick idea of the number of participants in advance.

Travelling Parmigiani: Colin and Neil

Sometimes you start following a team because of your classmate, sometimes because of the colors. Some other because of the name. Casualties, maybe. Or maybe not.

Colin and Neil are from Belfast, both strong supporters of Crusaders FC that started an interesting sort of gemellaggio between their local team and Parma Calcio, Italian Crusaders, following also matches in Italy.

Yesterday Crusaders FC won the Northern Ireland FA Cup – 3-0 against Ballinamarland – and our guys sent in real time a shot with the trophy and their Parma/Crusaders flag.

We took the chance to thank you Colin and Neil for their contribution to our Travelling Parmigiani photo album and, of course, congratulate with Crusaders FC for the victory.

C’mon the Crues!
