Football related songs/artists
English

With the World Cup 97 days away, the idea is to name songs or acts that relates, tenuous links acceptable, to football teams, players, managers etc. I'll start the ball rolling:

Alan Pardew might be humming 'Headstart For Happiness' by the Style Council.
'Mind Games' by John Lennon is ideal for Jose Mourinho.
Wayne Rooney's ideal song: 'Brass In Pocket' by The Pretenders.

Over to you guys.

Amp; CDP; Turntable; Tuner; Speakers

Wayne Rooney's should be "There's no one quite like grandma."

Frank Lampard "Don't leave me behind" - Everything but the girl

The entire England squad "Give it away now" - RHCP

Roy Hodgson "I'm a loser baby" - Beck

Wayne Rooney "Thick as a brick" - Jethro Tull

Tom Cleverley "Useless" - Depeche Mode

Ashley Cole "Money, money, money" - Abba

On a more positive note

The England squad "We are the champions" - Queen   (crosses fingers it comes before I pop my cloggs)

I know they're not tenuous links but actual football songs. But they are great songs.
