Umbro Playlists are a bit like buses at the moment – none for ages, then two come along almost on top of each other!
After the Everton game only a few days again, we now find ourselves welcoming Wigan to the City of Manchester Stadium.
Despite the fact that you’ve only had a couple of days to submit your ideas, we’ve still had some great suggestions for this Umbro Playlist. As we’re playing on a Monday night, songs that mention days of the week was our theme, and there was plenty of top songs to choose from. Lots of you suggested New Order’s Blue Monday, but we had to discount that, as it’s already appeared in a previous Umbro Playlist unfortunately. We’re very strict round here on that sort of thing!
Out of the other songs submitted, it was hard to pick out a winner, but one trio of tunes stood out – congratulations to Kate Walker, the winner of this Umbro Playlist, who chose:
Monday Monday by The Mamas And Papas (especially for the lyric “so good to me")
When Saturday Comes by The Undertones (good links to the football)
Seven Days Is Too Long by Chuck Wood (how many of us feel waiting for our next football fix!)
Some great choices from Kate, who wins a pair of tickets to the match and the chance to hear her choices blasting out around the ground – let’s hope they inspire the team towards three points!
Our next game at Eastlands will see us facing Alex McLeish’s Birmingham City, who’ve been having a great season in the Premier League. For the match against another set of Blues, we’ve got a nice simple Umbro Playlist theme for you. Three songs by bands from Birmingham or the Midlands. Plenty of bands to choose from, and plenty of great songs to get the fans going before the match, so get your thinking caps on and get your ideas down!
