The song, which contains the famous lyrics "football's coming home", is usually resurrected around most global tournaments in support of England and has been spontaneously sang by fans up and down the country during the past month. But first, a bit of context.

"I don't know what it is, but sometimes I get a feeling for certain things".

It's February 2001 and England have just appointed Sven-Goran Eriksson as their manager after yet another dismal performance at a major football championships.
