If there’sone thing that football fans do well, it’s coming up with chants, songs, andanthems for their teams. 'God took Messi and Pele' and 'For Brazil they should play Danny Collins' are among my personal favourites fromt the SoL.
The chants are usually adaptations of popular songsand are used to encourage the home team or slight the opposition. When placingbets on the Betfair footballbetting site, ‘home advantage’ is a factor which many take into consideration.One of the many reasons for this advantage is that the team has the fans ontheir side, giving them a psychological edge over their opponents.
Chants like‘Glory Glory’ are sung to cheer on their team, whilst other chants like “You’reNot Singing Any More” are used to unnerve the opposition team and fans. Whilstgeneral chants are used the most often, there are also chants and songs whichare specific to one team. It’s not just club teams which have had dedicated songs. In1996, the single ‘Three Lions’ was released to mark England’s participation inEuro 1996.
