Sports Letter: Singing praises

Click to follow
Sir: Henry Winter's article on terrace chants (The Independent, 12 August) covering everyone from Leyton Orient to Coventry City made interesting reading. However, I was surprised to see no mention of Liverpool. While accepting that the Kop ain't what it used to be, Liverpool supporters have a huge collection of original material sung by no other clubs. This includes the epic 30-line (none of which are repeated) anthem 'Scouser Tommy', sung at every match. As for Manchester United fans singing 'Campeones, Campeones' this May, well we stole that from Roma in the Olympic Stadium in 1984 and have sung it with some justification ever since.

Yours faithfully,
