We are jumping on the Premier League (2011-2012) season preview bandwagon in our own special way…

The Toppermost

Well ok… bit of a lie, we are not really. But this podcast does cover all the teams that are in the Premier League (the toppermost !) this coming season (2011-2012). All the tracks featured are – as far as possible – old tunes. There are a few exceptions which I’ll explain below, but for the most these are songs sung by the teams themselves. Brace yourself.

The songs are in (club) alphabetical order and a few notes about them:

  • The first track (after the theme) starts with an unknown Arsenal player commenting about the Gunners being branded as boring. Can you name this player ?
  • Despite their being a large number of Lancashire teams playing in the Premier League there is a severe shortage of music associated with them. And when I say severe I actually mean zero. With the Wigan track I used something previously posted which was more about Wigan Casino rather than the club.
    The link was with the song they produced which included a recording of a crowd at a Wigan match.
  • As mentioned most of these were randomly selected and there are a few FA Cup tracks added which in our opinion, are far worse than the club songs. Once again – you have been warned.

    A repost of one of my favourites – a calypso originally done in the 1950’s which names all the teams playing back then:
