“Bring Back The Special One”

No, not a eulogy for Jose Mourinho – more a contemplation on how silent our football grounds would be if those multi-purpose tunes which lend themselves so well to terracing improvisation - ‘Cwm Rhondda’, 'Knees Up Mother Brown', ‘La Donna è Mobile’ and ‘Guantanamera’ - had never been written.

Would it really be the case that 'you're not singing any more'? Admittedly, that might be no loss if, when it comes to singing, 'you're not very good', but then, you wouldn't be able to exhort anyone to 'bring back my stereo' either. On the plus side, with Guantanamera out of the way, no-one would any longer be questioning the preferences of Aberdeen supporters like myself...
