Don’t worry, no Fat Les or World In Motion (even with hil-air-i-ous John Barnes rap), but this Saturday’s Big Paws will be a football special.
In honour of the end of the season, I’ve been picked the bestest football related tunes going — and if I said I’d found some from The Undertones, The Fall and Frank Sidebottom you wouldn’t be surprised — but I’ve also got a rare-er-than-a-Maradonna-apology hit single by Johan Cryuff.
