Q. Are there any European football equivalents to Oldham Athletic's new terrace song "Meat Pie, Sausage Roll" and, if so, what food is featured? I ask this because a French colleague once told me about an early 1980s Paris St-Germain chant featuring "Croissants et Boissants"?

A. For a short while, a small section of the crowd at Millwall away games during the early 1990s sang "cheese and biscuits, cheese and biscuits, soooooooup, soooooooup!" I heard it first during a FA Cup tie at Norwich. FC St Pauli fans in Hamburg sing - in translation - "Kebab, Tzatziki and a salad, Kebab, Tzatziki and a salad..." Lord knows why. I suppose the most famous must be the celery song of Chelsea fans, "Celery... celery, if she won't come, I'll tickle her bum, With a stick of celery! Celery..."
