Vote: What Is The Greatest Football Chant Of All Time?

Where would football be without chants? They give fans an opportunity express a bit of personality while supporting their club, and the atmosphere in ground would be fairly flat without them.

With Fernando Torres announcing his retirement today, we were reminded of the fantastic chant that would ring around Anfield when he was at Liverpool. Balls editor Michael McCarthy believes it to be the greatest football chant of all time, something that sparked a huge debate in the office.

To settle the issue, we took to social media to get the opinions of Balls readers on the subject.

So what is the greatest football chant of all time? Here's some of the suggestions we received.

1.You can't beat a classic.

Here some of the suggestions we had in the office.

9. A classic from the Newcastle supporters

"Sunday, Monday, Habib Beye. Tuesday, Wednesday, Habib Beye. Thursday, Friday, Habib Beye. Saturday, Habib Beye, rockin' all week with you!"

10. Birmingham City adored a rejuvenated Emile Heskey at the club

"There's only one Emile Heskey, one Emile Heskey. He used to be shite, but now he's all right, Walking in a Heskey wonderland."

11. We all need more Djimi Traore in our lives

"Don't blame it on the Biscan, don't blame it on the Hamann, don't blame it on the Finnan, blame it on Traore. He just can't, he just can't, he just can't control his feet."
