I’ll keep this report straight and keep firmly to the facts, resisting the urge to use any double entendre, type jokes, anyway that’s probably already been done elsewhere.
Margate artist, Lonnie Donegan Jnr. has re-recorded his fathers song “World Cup Willie” which was a success as official song during the 1966, World Cup, when England football was last successful.
My own recollections of that particular victory are clear and notable for being the last football match I watched all the way through, although with Mrs Me being a Chelsea season ticket holder it’s difficult to avoid .
Apart from a rousing song, World Cup Willie was possibly the first sports event mascot, opening up the massive marketing opportunities, I myself spending pocket money on a souvenir replica ( as above ) some 44 years ago blimey!
