Hello there to all you boys and girls out there in love land tonight, I’m your host Casey Kas….Morgan Green, here to take you on a journey……of love. Love is a beautiful thing and it comes in all forms. Lets take a look at some of the requests we’ve received from your clubs tonight shall we?

Chelsea: I’ll Make Love to You by Boyz 2 Men
There were always going to be sparks flying when Jose returned to the Bridge, and just like this classic song, Jose is giving the Chelsea fans all of his love this season.
Manchester City: Don’t Let Go by En Vogue
With Manuel Pellegrini there has been a lot of love, heartbreak and soul shaking at City this year. But with the Citizens three points back and a game in hand with superior goal difference, they’ll be hoping to not let go of the top spot
Eight years without a trophy, the only thing keeping Arsene and Arsenal together is their unequivocal love of each other.
Liverpool: Let’s Get It On by Marvin Gaye
Four points back of league leaders Chelsea, Liverpool will want to get it while the getting is good, because as we’ve seen, Liverpool fans can turn on a dime.
Tottenham Hotspur: Part Time Lover by Stevie Wonder
We still don’t know if Timmy Sherwood is the permanent solution at Spurs, but for the time being he’s giving the fans all the love and affection they can handle
There were a lot of questions around Roberto Martinez becoming the new manager at Everton, slowly but surely the Everton fans are starting to realize their love for the new gaffer
Manchester United: Killing Me Softly by The Fugees
Low hanging fruit. Sue me.
Southampton: We Found Love by Rihanna f/ Calvin Harris
When Mauricio Pochettino took over at Southampton, no one realized it at the time, but they found their love in a hopeless place. Cut to Nigel Adkins crying in a corner, screaming that it should have been him.
It’s a dark time to be a Newcastle fan. You can hardly blame them for not feeling any love from Mike Ashley given the way they’ve sold off some of their best players the past few years. I imagine the fans just play this song on a loop every time they venture up to the stadium.
Swansea City: Love Song by 311
It doesn’t matter who is in charge of the Swans, the philosophy remains the same and the fans will always love that about their team. Garry Monk will do his best to make the Swans feel at home again and keep them in the Premier League.
West Ham: Let’s Stay Together by Al Green
It wasn’t long ago that West Ham were getting pummeled by teams on what seemed to be a fairly regular basis. But for all the ups and downs, they’ve decided to stay with Big Sam and it’s been paying off. Maybe keeping the band together and fit will have an even bigger benefit for the club next season.
Aston Villa: More Than Words by Extreme
There have been a lot of words spoken by Paul Lambert and Villa about the changes that the club have gone through recently. At times it’s looked promising, but they’ve hit the point where there needs to be more than words and actual promise shown on the pitch.
Hull City/Tigers: Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars
It doesn’t matter that their owner is a confirmed crazy person. It doesn’t matter that their name may be changing for insane reasons. Now that they’ve FINALLY added semi competent strikers, Hull are amazing just the way they are.
Stoke City: At Last by Etta James
Finally, Stoke rid themselves this season of Tony Pulis. They’re playing with style, flair and are flying up the tab…..ok so maybe they’re not that much better off, but at least they’re not playing caveman football right? Guys?
Crystal Palace: Lean on Me by Bill Withers
When things looked their darkest, just after Ian Holloway was sacked, all Palace needed was a friend. They got that friend in Tony Pulis who has helped them carry on their fight against relegation this season.
Norwich City: Is This Love by Whitesnake
It’s been nearly two years under Chris Hughton, so the Norwich City brass need to find out if this is really love the love that they’ve been searching for. If it’s not, then it’s possibly best for all involved that they go their separate ways.
West Brom: Hello by Lionel Ritchie
Hello? Is it Pepe Mel you’re looking for? For the Baggies sake, I certainly hope it is because I’m still not over the Steve Clarke sacking.
Sunderland: I Want to Know What Love Is by Foreigner
Sunderland have fallen in and out of love with several managers recently, but it seems like they’ve found someone in Gus Poyet who can heal them and show them how to love again. Hopefully, for the fans sake, this is true love that’s meant to last.
Cardiff City: Take on Me by a-ha
Love is a challenge, no one denies this. I imagine this song was running through poor Ole’s head when he took on the massive challenge of keeping the Blue/Red Birds/Dragons in the Premier League. But if anyone can keep them from being gone from the Premier League, it’s probably Ole.
Fulham: Hero by Enrique Iglesias
Fulham need a Hero. Felix Magath may be that hero. Their performances of late have been much better, not quite kiss the pain away better, but certainly better. If anything, the fans can ease their pain by watching Enrique in his prime.
Now wasn’t that one of the most romantic journey’s you’ve ever been on? I know it’s definitely in my Top 100 (ba dum tss). Hope you have a great Valentine’s Day everyone.
PS: If you didn’t enjoy the song your team requested, here’s Casey Kasem cursing.
