With Norwich City on the cusp of promotion to the Premier League, a petition calling for some horsing around has emerged.
If you’ve been to a game at Carrow Road recently you may well have heard fans singing about ‘Farke on a horse’.
Now City fans are hoping to make the song a reality as more than 200 people have signed a petition calling for head coach Daniel Farke to make a mounted lap of honour after the club’s last home game of the season.
The petition, which was started by Adam Harding on March 31, reads: “Let’s celebrate whatever happens [after] what has been a dream season for all Norwich City fans.
“What better way to celebrate than for Stuart Webber to bring out Daniel Farke on a horse at the last game of the season for a lap of honour.”
The preoccupation with City’s head coach atop a steed goes back to the discovery of photos of Farke being reluctantly led round SV Lippstadt 08’s ground on a horse as he left the German club for pastures new.
However, fans may be left disappointed as Farke said in a recent press conference: “I don’t think you will see me on a horse again.”
The full football ballad, which is sung to the tune of Waterfall by The Stone Roses, goes like this:
“Farke’s on a horse,
What a great team to support,
We’ve got Leitner, Buendia and Rhodes,
Teemu Pukki can’t stop scoring goals.
The greatest in East Anglia,
We’re going up.”
