Noel Gallagher, Johnny Marr, Ricky Hatton vs Tom Jones

STOKE-ON-TRENT - Footie City rivals Stoke and Manchester are set for an FA Cup Final song ding-dong – ­after unveiling plans to get top showbiz names in on the act.
Sources at mega-rich Manchester City claim the club is planning to ask some of Britain’s most famous Blues to perform a Band Aid-style charity single.
And legendary crooner Sir Tom Jones is in talks with Stoke to revamp his classic tune Delilah (famously covered in Italy, "La nostra favola" by Jimmy Fontana, "mai mai ti lascio, mai mai da sola..tu sarai sempre regina ed io il tuo re.." etc. lol).
The Sixties hit has long been a fans’ favourite at the Britannia Stadium and a spokesman said: “The club would be delighted if Tom agreed to re-do Delilah as the song for the FA Cup Final (14 May).
“The reaction of our supporters at Wembley for the semi-final – when Delilah was played over the PA system – was first class. It really helped make it feel like a home game.
“The song is sung by supporters at every game, home and away, and in particular when we score a goal. There were at least five renditions at Wembley for the 5-0 win over Bolton.”
In the Blue corner, Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher has been sounded out to help pen a song to help good causes.
Other names in the mix include legendary Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, TV funnyman Jason Manford, ex-boxing champ Ricky Hatton and former England cricket star Freddie Flintoff.
Gallagher, 43, recently admitted he wasn’t far off doing something for his beloved Blues.
And a Man City source said last week: “The club wants to get some big names for a worthwhile song – and get the players involved too.
“It’s still uncertain what will happen but having Noel Gallagher take part makes a lot of sense.”
Gallagher said: “Someone called me from the club and asked if they could bounce a few ideas off me. If they asked seriously I don’t know. Let’s wait till they ask.”
Over-the-moon Stoke fans say they would love veteran Sir Tom, 70, to re-release a version of Delilah for them.
Supporters’ club chairman Bryan Shaw said the song gives the players and fans a lift.
“It started a long time ago when fans were trying to think of a song to sing that didn’t have any swear words in it,” he said.
“Somehow Delilah was chosen and it was an instant favourite.”
