Football chants: the origins of fans’ favourite songs

As part of FourFourTwo’s 50 Best Football Chants special, why do Liverpool fans sing You’ll Never Walk Alone, why do West Ham fans sing I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles, and why on Earth do Stoke City fans sing Delilah (a creepy murder ballad about an insane voyeur who knifes his cheating lover to death)?

You can read all three pieces on the FourFourTwo website:

Why Liverpool fans sing You’ll Never Walk Alone

Why Stoke fans sing Delilah
