'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Tribute To Martin Laursen

Now let us remember how the Holte-end roared
And how even now all true Villans applaud
Of one whose greatness earns a pantheon's place
Amongst the Villa gods of power and grace

Our much loved doyen of the defensive art
A man of passion, skill: one huge dauntless heart
A brave winner in the game through Life's travail
One whose spirit taught us how the strong prevail

One who boldly triumphed through his doubts and pain
True Villan, captain, leader: our mighty Dane
Always a hero and forever our son
All true Villans salute you Martin Laursen

I really do feel for the big lad - in today's game you can easily carry on until your late 30's - particularly in Centre of Defence (look at Hypia). He's been cruelly robbed of a good 6 or 7 more years I reckon, and how we're going to miss him. Here's hoping we can keep him on in a coaching capacity - he could certainly teach Davies a thing or two...
