The likes of Leeds used to sing it too and it died off in the 90s. Was always synonymous with Liverpool and Celtic but was more a general football song for a long time. 

Read somewhere before that United fans sung it on the teraces in the aftermath of the Munich disaster which I assume was before Liverpool adopted it. 

I'm open to correction on this.

would of seen a fair bit of Leeds away D69 cant ever recall it being sung  - maybe the 4-3 charity shield final against Liverpool even then I cant recall it

Nah, not then. Long before that. Think it may have been sung in 90 promotion season but was rare by then. Think there's a video somewhere I saw.

Were you at that Charity Shield game btw? I was there cracking day out.

I still had mates living over there having come back to Dublin myself so two of us went over for the match and stayed with them on the lash. Heavy couple of weeks.  

Found the programme myself in my folk's attic a few weeks ago when I was looking for the Ireland England Euro 88 one for that RTE thing my Da was on. 

Was an amazing day alright. Glorious weather, fans drinking and mixing freely outside and loads of Liverpool fans shaking my hand saying how glad they were to see us win in instead of 'them Manc bastards'. 

Get inside and the whole ground is singing 'Are you watching, Manchester?!' and then it's a seven goal thriller with a Cantona hat trick. Little did I know how that would end... 

Found a video of Leeds fans singing it in 82 after beating Brighton to give themselves a chance of staying up. Which of course they didn't take! It's right at the end.

I also remember him from being in the away end cheering us on in Brian Kerr's first game at Hampden.   

Didn't he feck up his kidneys after the Mexico game. Was selected for the drug test after game but was so dehydrated he couldn't piss, he then drank so much water he flooded his kidneys. (Hence why he didn't play against Norway)

No, that was after the Italy game. He was taking very ill mid air on the plane to Orlando but recovered. He was just rested against Norway.

Always assumed it was the Mexico game given the heat

I have never looked back on 2012 due to the results we got but wouldn't mind looking at it with the passage of time.

Will there be 2002, 2012, 2016 night?

I was behind the goal in Gdańsk the night we played them and I remember even their warm up was class to watch. As bad as Ireland were that night, no team could live with that Spain team when they were in full flow. The movement and the passing was out of this world. Although we were abysmal on the night and the tournament and my trip was over - being there to watch that Spanish team in the flesh was a privilege.
