Thank you, Bob, and all the best for your next steps.

“Goodbye Parma,

after four years of success, fights, victories, smiles and goals achieved, it is time to say goodbye. We lived a magnificent experience together, we tasted the challenge, thanks to everybody’s work and sacrifice we reached unbelievable results. Thanks to the support of a property made by men, Parma fans, unite and passionate: like a Family is. And I’ve been part of this family too, together with them I grew up as a man and as a manager: Parma trusted in me and let me work serenely, together with good people. I have to say thank you to Pizzarotti Family, Guido Barilla, Marco Ferrari, Giacomo Malmesi, Gian Paolo Dallara, Angelo Gandolfi and Mauro Del Rio. We we together into history, with them the fan base can be confident.

A special thanks to my players, all I trained during this venture. As I use to say: players are the one that step the pitch, if we won they deserved it. It has been a pleasure to share this adventure with them, every one of them gave me something. I am a very demanding manager, I pretend a lot from me and from who works with me so I have to thanks all the club members: warehouse workers, fundamental, secretaries, press office, medical staff, boards, CEO Luca Cara, Chief Operating Officer Stefano Perrone and all the employers. I fought together with Daniele Faggiano, a great football expert, always ready, as a sport director, for good words at the right time.

Me and my staff – precious for me – reached great results thanks to the help of everyone: Alessio Cracolici has been a fundamental man, always there as a Team Manager. My greetings also goes to the legend of this team that I have been lucky to know both as a player and as a Club Manager: Alessandro Lucarelli was an example.

It is impossible to forget Parma’s wonderful supporters , to whom goes my huge embrace. Their passion always warmed up us, even when things wasn’t so easy. Their support never lacked. To who applauded, supported, whistled, criticized, especially to them, I say thank you. Without their push, we won’t go so far.

Goodbye Parma. I will always be grateful to you.“

Boys: 30 years from that 27th may and a limited scarf to celebrate it

We share the communication of Boys Parma 1977 published on their website and Facebook page. Who is interested in the scarf and can’t contact Boys directly can write us. We will do our best to help:

“THE BOYS TOWARDS 43 YEARS.

Two months have passed since the last trip to Turin. Two months without headquarters, without parts, without aggregation. In the face we have the prospect of remaining for a long period without stages, with a thousand uncertainties as to what it will be like when they reopen, and if we could go back to experiencing them from Ultras as we have always done. The first step will be to reopen the headquarters, return to live and reason from the Group, find the incentives and motivations to survive, try to reach all our activities, those that we will manage a rate anyway, increasing those extra cheering, to get to next year to still have the stimuli and the need to continue to keep the headquarters open. In August there will be 43 years of the boys’ life, 43 years in which the boys became communities, developing belonging to the young Parmigiani and becoming the reference point for all Parma fans. Now it is everyone’s job to remain united, to continue to be a community, not individual fans, to preserve traditions and defend, we remember that what we have earned and where we have come in these years. We will try to organize aggregation moments, as soon as possible, in order to find ourselves again, and not to lose the sense of aggregation and friendship that has been created over the years, cheering together in the Curva Nord Matteo Bagnaresi.

On May 27th will be the thirty years of our first promotion in Serie A. We had plans to celebrate this day, but unfortunately nothing can be done, it is not the right time. However, we thought of a way to remember the 30 years of the promotion, a day like Vicenza, 4 May 86, Wembley, the Bologna playoff, the bankruptcy, the promotion in Spezia, the days that made our community great.

We decided to make a scarf for May 27, to fix one of the most important days lived by the boys and our city in history, a memory for those who come, despite everything, want to continue to keep our values, our traditions alive and the ideal Ultras of our city: THE BOYS PARMA 1977.

30 YEARS FROM 27TH MAY 1990

This date will always be special for Parma, from more than 30 years it is tattooed in our town history. A day that elevated Parma, his Ultras and his fans to a pure pleasure state, a day that gave us the first memorable promotion in Serie A, that launched us into following 30 years, full of satisfactions, from both ultras and football points of view. A day that gave us the most important trophy, the Ghetto banner, main symbol of hated Reggiana cousin. […] We were in Tardini, not in Wembley, but what Parma lives that 27th may 1990, it was maybe the best day for Boys Parma 1977 in our 43 years.

We decided to celebrate 30 years from 27th may 1990 with a scarf that could honor both conquers and keep those memories alive.

The scarf is a limited edition and who is interested in it can write to Boys Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CrUsAdErS

FROM 1977 PRUDLY BOYS PARMA”

No Football without Fans: Boys Parma 1977 come together Europe Ultras voice

credit: Givemesport.com

Boys Parma 1977 released a statement today to underline their dislike for a restart of Football with no fans in the stadium. Here is the document that has been singned by Boys and over 350 fans groups in Italy and all around Europe: from Bayern Munich to Juventus Ultras, from Curva Sur Madrid to Sporting Lisbon’s Torcida Verde.

STOP FOOTBALL WITHOUT FANS

Europe is under Coronavirus attack. Government decided for a total lockdown, taking care of the most precious thing: public health. first target for everyone. So we think it is reasonable a total stop of European Football.

Football governance expressed since the beginning his only intention: RESTART. We are strongly sure that the only ones to step the field would be economical interests and this is confirmed by the fact that the League should have a closed doors restart, without the beating heart of this “popular sport”: FANS.

It reasonable to assume that, once again, money supremacy step up human life importance.

So, we firmly ask to who manage this decisions to keep the stop for football competitions, until fill the stadiums will be again a safe habit with no risks for human health.

Football- system is in a difficult situation, caused to the bad administration of last decades. Bad administration that we always tried to underline with the only target to protect the most beautiful sport in the world.

Nowadays Football is considered more an “industry” than a sport, where the pay-TV keep the control over Clubs throught TV rights letting them pay excessive salary to the players; fomenting the hunger of football agents who’s only target is to fill their bank accounts as much as possible. A system based only on business and personal interests that, if it will not be resized will bring to a only end: THE FOOTBALL DEATH.

We would like to underline that, if Ultras would have the minimum intention to make money on what it is out passion (as we could read on media during last days), we would push for a restart rather than fight for this option not becoming real.

All this have to change. We are ready to discuss with who needed to bring Football to the origin, to go back living our bigger passion firsthand, to let this be again A POPULAR SPORT.”
