John Egan Leads Sheffield United In Raucous 'Allez, Allez, Allez'

Sheffield United's promotion to the Premier League was confirmed on Sunday as Leeds drew 1-1 with Aston Villa. A day earlier, they had taken a major step towards English football's top tier when they beat Ipswich 2-0.

With just one game of the season remaining - United travel to play Stoke next Sunday - players and management celebrated on Sunday night.

"If you go into a pub in Ireland, you have to have a song," Ireland international John Egan said with microphone in hand, "and if you don't have a song, you may as well not go into the pub at all.

"In January, I said to my better half, 'I have got a song. We are going to the Premier League and when we get to the Premier League, I'm going to sing this song'."

That song was Sheffield United's own version of 'Allez, Allez, Allez'.

We are Sheff United
They call us the blades
We've got Billy Sharp
He's a legend at the Lane
Basham and O'Connell
Overlapping down the wing
Duffy, Fleck and Norwood
With his fucking ping
Allez, Allez, Allez, Allez (x4)

Chris Wilder is our gaffer
He leads us all the way
Playing proper football
The Sheff United way
Allez, Allez, Allez, Allez (x4)

He stuck pink paper on the wall
They call us journeymen
Now we're going on a journey
To the fucking Prem
Allez, Allez, Allez, Allez (x4)
