Stevie Gerrard comes to town,
Stevie Gerrard loves this town,
He lobs the ball from 40 yards,
And the glory's on the cards...........
Football crowds. 44,000 people screaming at the top of their lungs. But what I love the most about football crowds are the chants. All those people thinking as one, praising their heroes, goading the opposing fans, making fun of Jose Mourhino (well, everywhere but Chelsea!), it is absolutely brilliant.
BBC's Quotes of the week now has a section for the best chants of the week. Some of them are so funny, I find myself giggling at work. Anyway, I felt I had to share the ones I liked the most.......
"There's only one Harry Redknapp!"
Man City fans to Southampton fans in response to chants of "Glory, glory, Man Utd!"
"We want five."
Man Utd fans after going 4-0 up at Tottenham.
"We want one!"
Spurs fans reply
"2-0 to the En-g-land."
Tottenham fans to Arsenal fans during the first leg of their Carling Cup semi-final.
â€œTwo nil and you ****** it up!"
Arsenal fans retaliate after Baptista equalises.
"Are you Tottenham in disguise?"
Arsenal fans to Spurs supporters during the Gunners' extra time win in the Carling Cup Semi-Final second leg.
"That's why we're in the Premiership."
Middlesborough fans after going 2-0 up against Bristol City in the FA Cup.
"Thatâ€™s why you're going down!"
Bristol City fans respond after seeing their side pin it back to 2-2.
â€œWe're s***, but we love our team!"
Watford fans after going 4-0 down to Man Utd.
"We're not famous any more."
Leeds fans during their latest defeat to Norwich.
Newcastle fans to West Ham fans: "Going down, going down, going down."
West Ham fans to Newcastle fans: "So are we, so are we, so are we!"
"You're just a small club with money."
Chant by Wigan fans to Chelsea counterparts - seemingly with no sense of irony!
Of course, I had to end it with one about Chelsea ;)
