When it comes to football chants, British fans surely must be top of the league. Throughout the country every weekend, football stadiums ring with the sound of hundred 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. Chants can spring from deep-rooted rivalries or simply from the fact that a player has a funny name. Plundering the pop charts for tunes to set their ditties too, fans have come up with hundreds of hilarious, moving, clever and often downright scandalous songs...all brought together here! From close-to-the-knuckle terrace favourites to brilliantly witty off-the-cuff chants and the classics heard in nearly every stadium in the land, Shall We Sing a Song For You? is the perfect collection of the good, the bad and the downright offensive.
