    I've actually wanted to know this. Bayern Munich fans use this chant a lot and I suppose the German national football fans have also adopted it, that and heroically cheering GOMEZ after the announcer says MARIOOOOO...

    I absolutely hate this song. It's symptomatic of the commercialised happy-clappy supporters who are incapable of creating any actual atmosphere. Clubs like Wigan who blast this rubbish out every game (ok, the rare times they actually score) should be ashamed!

    it's not the song's fault people abuse it.

    News broadcasters always ask you to explain things, it's not about the facts but how they present the information. "first get the facts then you can play around with it" this is what news do, they take facts and present them in a way which fits their agenda and they always present articles in such a way that asks the reader = hey this is bad bblablabla, but what do you think? obviously they don't formulate it that way but it's what they do.
