Probably the first and only musical tribute to Nigel Clough! Irish band The Sultans of Ping shook the music world with all the vigour of a mild bout of indigestion when they strolled onto the scene in the early 1990s. They did leave behind a few decent tracks, including this ode to Cloughie Jnr. The track is available on the excellently titled album Casual Sex in the Cineplex!
Give him a ball and a yard of grass/ He’ll give you a move with perfect pass/ Give him a ball and a yard of space/ He’ll give you a move with godly grace/ He ‘s a nice young man with a lovely smile/ A man can’t have no greater love/ Than give 90 minutes to his friends.
