Remember at a cup final in the mid eighties Elton Jon was on the pitch bring interviewed with his then wife Renata. He was saying what wonderful reception they'd had from the Evertonians, this was spoiled somewhat by thousands of Everton fans roaring out " your a puff , your a puff, your a PUFF "in the background. In these days of Canal St blues etc this may seem unbelievable to young fans but in those days it was not remarkable.
At the time it would’ve been remarkable if it hadn’t have been sung. Different times & thankfully, most of the inhabitants of this country have moved on

As a FOC I remember the first song I heard on the Kippax.

The blues are here to stay - that's what the people say
We are the best football team the world has ever seen
We're from the Kippax Street - and we are magnifique
tra la la la la la la la la la la la la.
I think we also sung it when at Wembley in 69
I was right behind the goals when Nelly scored.
Best day of my life then.
Want a repeat beating Leicester in the final and also revenge on
those perennial losers Tosseringham.

tra la la la la la la la la la la la la.

Edited for accuracy.

One season at Anfield, their first home game of the season after winning the double the previous season (I think the press may have gone on about it a bit!?)
Liverpool paraded the FA Cup and League trophy in the centre circle.
The City fans on seeing this burst into a chorus of 'What the fucking hell is that'. (Could have referred to either or both trophies really)
Although it was true that in 1986 we weren't used to seeing such things it was still good, ironic, self depreciating sense of humour from the City fans there. Funnily enough ,there would have been many times down the years Liverpool fans could have sung the very same song...very much doubt that they would have let their pride and sense if self entitlement do it though.

Come to think of it, our other 'mates' who play in red could have sang that song about the (then) 1st Division trophy at that time....as indeed , come to think of it, they could now about the Premier League trophy!!!
