The next 6 best football (soccer) songs ever

DavidClarkeI’ve had such a lot of feedback since I did my original blog The six best soccer (football) songs ever that I’ve had to come up with another six just to keep everyone happy. And, yes I know, there are a lot more.

Comment below with your favourite and I may do more…

Anyway here they are:

1. Best song GIVE HIM A BALL AND A YARD OF GRASS by Sultans of Ping – nominated by my publisher Kevin Barrow
see video at the bottom of the blog and sample lyrics from it

2, Best song in an advert UNDERDOG by Kasabian _ nominated by coach Pavl Williams

3. Best World Cup Song THREE LIONS by The Lightening Seeds

4. Best Crowd Song MAS QUE NADA by Sergio Mendes

5. Best Ex Player Song DIAMOND LIGHTS by Glenn Hoddle and Chris Waddle
Watch Hoddle and Waddle on Top of the Pops

6. Best Club Song A SONG FOR LEICESTER CITY – only because it mentions the best young English manager in the game: Simon Grayson and England hero Emile Heskey.
Watch a Song for Leicester City (Billy Joel style)

My publisher Kevin Barrow brought the Sultans of Ping song to my attention after I had done the first Best Soccer (football) song collection and I have to admit it is a classic

Here’s an extract from their lyrics:

“Give him a ball & a yard of grass
He’ll give you a move with perfect pass
Give him a ball & a yard of space
He’ll give you a move with godly grace”
Here’s their video:

Awwww… Chant Like an English Fan didn’t even get a mention…! Maybe for 2010 we’ll get at least a one-liner: for a sneak peek.

One that you’re missing is “Chant Like an English fan” by The Laddz – pretty funny song and great video… or the vids on youtube.

Hi there. I’m the manager of my now U13 boys, from Edenvale Football Club in SA. My boys have come far since we started 4 years ago, and doing so well, even almost winning the Eastern’s Junior plate last year, loosing by one point. The problem is I cannot find a reliable coach!! In four years they have had 7 coaches. I’m seriously thinking of coaching as I am there all the time and do the fitness with them anyways. The only problem is I don’t know the first thing about soccer, also I do not see any female coaches. Can you please help in some training methods or point me in the right direction.

Thanking you Kindly
Enrica Dale

P.S. Forgot to mention, most of my boys come from children’s homes or single parents homes, and absolutely and totally LOVE soccer.

Thanx, Enrica
