Football songs through the years

Football chants and songs are an integral part of British footballing culture. Fan favourites like Marching on Together and You'll Never Walk Alone can be heard reverberating around Elland Road and Anfield every week while player specific songs are often the vehicle for adulation or derision from the stands.

Over the years another breed of song has become just as popular as those sung from the terraces.

From World Cups to FA Cups a rich variety of songs for specific tournaments has been produced over the years.

Marching On Together has become synonymous with Leeds United. Don Revie's team of the early seventies is immortalised in this video for their 1972 FA Cup Final win. Featuring greats like Jack Charlton, Billy Bremner and Peter Lorimer the team was regarded as one of the best in the Whites' history.

West Yorkshire rivals Bradford City, managed by Terry Dolan, penned this effort for their 1987 season. The Bantams finished fourth in the Second Division, losing in the play-offs, and reached the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Huddersfield Town supporters recorded this in 1983 to support the team's campaign after promotion back to the Second Division. The season started well but a dip in form around Christmas looked to have doomed Town back to the third tier, but they recovered to narrowly avoid relegation.

Spurs teamed up with the legendary Chas and Dave for this 1981 ensemble. The team featured fan favourite Ossie Ardiles. The next season Ardiles had a key role in Tottenham's cup run, but didn't play in the final as he left London early to join up with Argentina's World Cup squad.

The England team recorded this classic for the same competition in 1982 - featuring players like Glen Hoddle, Trevor Brooking and Kevin Keegan.

Leeds United's Jack Charlton is held in high esteem by Ireland's green and white army for his management of the team in the late eighties and early nineties. The 1988 European Championships saw Charlton's team beat England 1-0 in the group stages and elevated the 1966 World Cup winner to legendary status.
