Like every other club at the time we used to sing you'll never walk alone!!!

Sang on all our big occasions in the 70ís early 80ís


Although it didn't go down well in the early eighties when in the lead up to Christmas Bob Warman and his mate with Oscar the dog tried to get the Holte to sing that and some Christmas song.  It didn't help that we were playing Liverpool.

I do remember it being sung during the after match celebrations in Rotterdam.

As well as that weirdly horrible clap-clap truncated version in the 70s.

At least we had a badge of honour in the  70's refusing to sing Que Sera.

We were still singing YNWA in the 90s, sure you can hear us singing it just before Hughes scored in the 94 final.

By then we were only doing it when we played them.

I think that was last time I heard it. Safe to say its Iverpools anthem now and you won't hear villa sing it again.

... I think Celtic may have a thing or two  to say about that
