Referee's a W****r : The Good, the Bad and the Downright Offensive - Britain's Most Famous Football Chants Hardback

Description

When it comes to football chants, British fans surely must be top of the league.

Througout the country every weekend, football stadiums ring with the sound of hundreds of thousands of supporters singing the praises of their favourite players, rubbishing the opposition, having a go at the ref and waxing lyrical about past legends.

From lengthy ballads reminiscing about club glory to spontaneous chants - often with extremely amusing results - football fans across the nation revel in the opportunity to make themselves heard. Chants can spring from deep-rooted rivalries - Arsenal and Spurs, Celtic and Rangers or Manchester United and Liverpool - or simply from the fact that a player (or in the case of the Neville brothers, their dad) has a funny name.

Plundering the pop charts for tunes to set their ditties to, fans have come up with hundreds of hilarious, moving, clever and often downright scandalous songs.

Altogether now...!
