Who knew Gary Lineker and fellow Leicester native Willie Thorne, the former world snooker player, were the best of friends? Well they are, or at least they were.
Glad All Over is Crystal Palace’s anthem and has been since the 1960s when the Dave Clarke Five played the hit at Selhurst Park.
Eagles fans sing it before, during and after games and when they reached the 1990 FA Cup final the players adopted it and sang it live on TV.
John Salako loves it…
Despite going to the World Cup in Argentina full of confidence, a loss to Peru and draw with Iran in the group stage had left Scotland's dreams in tatters.
They needed to beat the Netherlands in the final game by three goals to advance and when the diminutive Gemmill danced his way through the Dutch defence to score and make it 3-1, there appeared to be hope.
That was until Johnny Rep made it 3-2 and sent them home early again.
But the midfielder's effort was immortalised by Renton in Trainspotting, who said this after having had sex. "I haven't felt that good since Archie Gemmill scored against Holland in 1978," he said.
The Gazza shell suit
Hands up if you owned a Gazza Rip shell suit?
The former England player revealed in his autobiography that offers from companies eager to attach his name to their products were flooding in during his heyday.
"I hadn't really much of a clue about what was going on, and what all these deals meant," he explained in Gazza: My Story.
"I was endorsing all sorts of things, from lunchboxes, calendars, bedroom rugs, t-shirts, keyrings and shell suits," he added, in addition to the more expensive items he flogged.
Joe Jordan and Heineken
In the 70s, Heineken were showing that by drinking the beer, you could achieve spectacular results as it 'refreshes the parts other beers cannot reach'.
This funny billboard ad from 1978 shows Joe Jordan, who had lost his front teeth in a goalmouth scramble, taking a swig to reveal his restored gnashers. (picture from the footballattic).
Gianfranco Zola's pizzas
What should Gianfranco Zola, the Italy international endorse? Pizza, of course. The Chelsea man and Stateside Pizza teamed up to create two offerings in 1997. One was a Margarita and the other was ham & pepperoni, which were sold exclusively by Tesco for a month.
Pat Jennings and oil
Way before dandruff was invented, goalkeeper's endorsed products by dressing up like Pat Jennings did in the 70s and flung themselves around in the mud. "An oil filter is like a goalkeeper; the more it saves the better it is," people were told.
The Scotland 1978 squad and the Chrysler Avenger
Ahead of the 1978 World Cup, Scotland's players were not shy in endorsing products - they had a pool where all their commercial activity money was to be divided equally - and they came together for the Chrysler Avenger among other things.
Manager Ally MacLeod, who was promoting a carpet company, had rallied the nation into believing they could win the competition in Argentina. However, the team were back home before long having failed to get out of the group stage and that Chrysler sponsorship had long since disappeared.
Be like Lee Sharpe
Having seen this posted by One Norman Whiteside on Twitter (@WhitesideOne), it simply had to go in.
Sir Alex Ferguson didn't appear to hold Paul Ince in high regard when giving a team talk to his Man United players in 1998.
The manager was preparing his side for Liverpool where Ince, a former United player, was now playing and his comment was caught on camera during the documentary 'The Alex Ferguson story'.
"You just make sure you're ready for [Ince] tomorrow," he growled. "That's all you need to worry about him. His fucking big-time Charlie bit - he's against fucking men, am I right?"
Years later, though, when asked about the incident, Fergie revealed he regretted making the comment.
"We let a camera into our dressing room, which we had never done before, and it won't happen again. It wasn't a personality issue with Paul," he added.
In total Jurgen Klinsmann scored 110 goals in the Bundesliga but one that stands out is this overhead kick for Stuttgart in the 1987/88 season.
It was against Bayern, a team he later played for in Germany, in a 3-0 win.
Watch the goal below and Retro Football Blog make no apology at all for the Rick Astley background music.
France missed out on a place at USA '94 and one man was blamed: David Ginola.
In the closing stages of a World Cup qualifier in November 1993, France were drawing with Bulgaria in Paris, which suited the hosts just fine. Their opponents on the other hand required victory and rather than run time down in the corner, Ginola attempted to cross the ball to Eric Cantona.
Unfortunately it was over-hit and Bulgaria broke away to score. That made it 2-1 and it was au revoir for Ginola and co.
And it was all the flamboyant winger's fault, according to his manager Gerard Houllier, who said the player had "committed a crime against the team."
Unsurprisingly, Ginola hasn't forgiven his compatriot and in 2014 revealed he neither has nor wants a relationship with his former manager.
"I was always told as a child that you win and lose as a team," he told Four Four Two.
"After that game I was made to feel as if I was playing an individual sport, and actually the players didn't say anything - they decided to hide behind the fact I was being blamed."

It was 0-0 when Bressan produced the spectacular to fire Fiorentina ahead against Barca in 1999.
His overhead kick from outside the 18-yard box is one of the Champions League's great goals in a group game that finished 3-3 in Florence.
