I’m sure I vaguely remember this but I’m on my phone so can’t be bothered to check.

Didn’t someone suggest Bananarama’s Robert De Niro’s waiting?

Robert De Zerbi’s Waiting
Talking Italian, talking Italian

Needs adding to but it would ring round the ground.

I forgot how good the lead into that song is:

A walk in the park can come a bad dream
Chelsea are trying to copy me
This is my only escape from it all
Watching Brighton Stand or Fallllll

Robert De Zerbi’s Training
Talking Italian, talking Italian

It has promise. Needs a second verse!

His improving English is impressive - credit to him for that. How much he can improve/is improving the Albion - I'll wait a bit before committing.

He took over a very good team - "Just carry on' would have been a perfectly good way to come in and keep it going for the last few weeks. Can he/will he take us on? Ask me this time next year.

TBH, a football 'song' doesn't even really need a second line!

I think hes a very exciting manager. He had flair and gritt. Appreciated the fans and is very passionate. Just what ive missed. Plus hes an excellent manager too.

I think he already has affected our style of play, for example from kick off we always would play it back to Dunk who would play a speculative long ball to Welbeck or whomever to hopefully win possession and continue the attack, this used to frustrate the hell out of me.
Why play a long ball that we might or might not win if we are a possession based team?
It looks like Robbie has corrected that, we now kick off, play it back to Dunk who moves it short thus keeping possession.

We also move the ball quicker now with a lot more one touch passes, it doesn’t always work but when it does, it looks bloody impressive.

I’m fully on board with the De Zerbi journey and haven’t been as excited with our style as when Poyet first came to town and had us using the football rather than seemingly trying to get rid of it.

His English is improving rapidly. Very impressive fellow.

Just said the same. The improvement, week on week, is quite something, which is great to see/hear because it's indicative of a real commitment to what he's doing.
It is incredibly impressive, to go out in front of the media and speak a language your are currently learning and talk about your brand new job. Show's commitment and a lot of balls too.
(Certainly more impressive than my ability to multi quote)

Any song better than the current dreary oooo Roberto De Zerbi song will be an upgrade
And more than half sing that wrong too. Who added the ooohh part.

It’s quite simple really, it’s 3 words yet most around me yesterday were mysteriously adding the 4th.

It’s because the ooh adds an extra syllable and makes it correct / better. Tbh I prefer it with the ooh bit.
