    So when Egan first did this it was the first time I ever heard it.

    Now since then, every match I watch they are all doing it. Did Egan going viral with it start all this or were these teams already singing it?

    Liverpool have been singing it for over a year, since before last CL final. Most clubs copied them, we were quite late on the bandwagon.

    I believe some of us were singing a song about Hendo to the same tune earlier in the season.

    Are you serious, loads of clubs have been singing it well before us.
    It’s us that are doing the copying.

    On its first airing at the players presentation Egan even says back in January he promised his wife he would sing his song if we gained promotion. He then apologises to Duffy and O’Connell for copying it from their home town club Liverpool but changes the words.

    Egan isn’t a songwriter like Elton John, he’s more of a lyricist like Bernie Taupin.

    Charlton are singing it but I did a bit of googling and it's on their forum in October.

    Egan just picked a song that every fucker sings.

    Stuntpegg on YouTube mentioned it on one of her videos that she's fed up of it because everyone does it, and that was pre-Egan version too.

    She's a Napoli fan and they started doing it before Liverpool and they've been doing it for years. Think it actually started off in the Italian lower leagues.

    Sorry mate, must have never noticed but I only really pay attention to blades songs. And it's not us who copied it, blame Johnny Egan from Cork.

    Didn’t realise Stuntpeg was a Napoli fan, suppose it beats being a Bolton fan ha ha.

    With the chorus being Allez, allez, allez....then surely there’s some French origin somewhere?

    It’s fine, although I do believe Egan might have written the best lyrics for that song, so he deserves some credit.

    Obviously I'm not asking if Egan invented it he said himself he got it from an Irish team but since then I've heard it throughout every match I've watched

    She's half Italian or summat. She actually goes to Napoli games more than some Liverpool/Citeh fans that live in the same country go to games.

    You would want a second team if you supported Bolton though yeah haha

    The song is called L’Estate Sta Finendo, apparently a 1985 hit by some Italian disco pop group.

    Think the Napoli version is about some siege of the town or something.

    Certainly used at Cork City when I was there last season

    Also witnessed Atletico sing it pre moving to 'Wanda' so < 12/18 months 'old'

    Suggestion re Italian lower league seems (more than) feasible given (apparently) based on an Italian disco 'hit' !?

    Regards club songs I remember our Kop in the late 70’s and early 80’s singing

    You’ll never walk alone - the Liverpool song and even
    Marching on together - the Leeds song.

    At the time I was very young and thought the MOT song was a Sheff United original and assumed Leeds must have copied us ha ha

    The song is complete shite, got bored of it very quickly. Its great that Egan came up with some lyrics but they fail to save a really dull song. I’m never joining in with singing the fucker.
