Great little book for an American who is getting more educated about soccer (football) and likes the rich team histories. This book was put together by a fan who amassed the various songs one may hear in all the different stands (or, have heard on terraces) across Britain (yes, Rangers, Celtic included). For ease of use, it's organized by team.
In addition to the songs, the author includes a little history about the club and why/how the song came to be associated with the club. For example, he talks about Millwall (pronounced: Meewaw or Meellwool) and how they take the piss and other sides s*** themselves - no bullocks. So they sing "Let em come". Brilliant, innit?
Speaking of, the songs are accurate therefore it does include all the foul language including the grandaddy o' them all: The "c-word". So, like the author of a book I read on hooliganism (typical Yank infatuated w/ Hooliganism, I admit it) stated, "My dad explained to me that there was 'pitch language' and language we use everywhere else." Obviously, these are pitch language at its best. So, order one and throw it in your boot (or, under the seat if you have lorry) so you 'ave it 'andy when you and your mates get pissed and are having a cracking time. Be careful, the bint one flat over may call the bobbies. I promise you'll never wanna drop it in the dustbin bc it's lovely. Too right youth!
It is dated to the mid 90s. I didn't take off a star for that bc I knew what I was getting (look @ the date of publish). If you view it as history then it's to be expected, but if you want more current songs, look elsewhere.
