    Hello all

    not a Spurs fan but not a wind up merchant either,

    hoping for some help regarding an England World Cup song that came out in 1970 when Back Home was the official song,

    It mentioned Martin Peters (then of Spurs) and a few more England players but I can't remember the title or any more words other than "Martin to Ossie and bang"

    I have tried all the Google searches and everyhit.com but nothing mentioned at all.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks mate,

    I don't think many will remember it but as Martin Peters set up the goal in the song I thought someone here would be a good bet.

    Cheers again for the welcome.

    I've searched all the usual places, Youtube, Wikipedia, google etc and found lists of WC songs but no mention of this at all,

    It does exist and I've emailed loads of football sites but still nothing, if anyone knows this they will be one of a very few by the looks of it.

    Just googled it, only two england songs listed in 1970 are Back home and The World Beaters Sing The World Beaters.

    No idea what either are, but the second might be of help.

    Been on there mate and that world beaters thing is a 12 track LP, I found a bit of each on youtube and none were the one I'm looking for...thing is I'm not sure it was the squad in fact I doubt it was so not knowing who sang it is making it harder to find.

    I'm sure someone will recognise it sometime but its driving me mad at the moment as even a couple of old mates from back then I've spoken to don't remember it.

    It went (cant recall the names so I'll put someone) "someone to someone", "someone to someone", "Martin to Ossie and bang".

    Nightmare more like...even the missus is saying I made it up.

    I remember it as I was surprised with Jeff Astle and Geoff Hurst in the team the song had Peter Osgood as the Scorer...

    It really was around but the only worry for me is it might have been an advert or something, there wasn't so much advertising then though and I'm sure I would have remembered what the add was for.

    I've even had them ask the question on Vital Englands website but again the only replies are people either saying they were'nt about then or asking if I mean Back Home.

    Have you tried asking Sir Geoff Hurst himself?
