‘John Ruddy Would’ve Saved That’ - Norwich fans create World Cup song with a difference

PUBLISHED: 12:32 12 June 2014 | UPDATED: 12:33 12 June 2014

"John Ruddy would've saved that" by Kit Marsden.


A Norwich City fan has created a song to voice his disappointment that Canary keeper John Ruddy is not in Brazil with the England squad.

Kit Marsden, the man behind “John Ruddy Would’ve Saved That”, is a musician from Brundall and said the song started out as a joke when he was watching the Ecuador v England game last week.

“I was watching the friendly and Ben Foster was in goal. He let in two goals and I put on Twitter both times ‘John Ruddy would have saved that’. It was a joke with friends,” he said. The 23-year-old wrote the song the next day and also filmed a video which he put onto YouTube, where the amusing song has already had more than 700 views.

Mr Marsden added: “It’s a shame Ruddy didn’t make the squad because he’s an excellent keeper. He pulled off some excellent saves for Norwich this season.”

The song is available on iTunes from Saturday.

  • Ben Foster did look a tad random in that game. Poor decision by Woy, both in terms of footballing criteria and loyalty issues. Let`s hope Joe Hart avoids contracting acute dandruff, and Woy`s little buddy Ben doesn`t have to play. Ruddy probably wouldn`t have either. Surely Ben is behing Big Fraser in the pecking order??
