All this talk of chanting has made me think of the best songs I’ve heard on the terraces and what makes a good terrace song. My particular favourite is that sung by Sheffield United to the tune of Annie’s Song by John Denver:

You fill up my senses
like a gallon of Magnet
like a packet of woodbine
like a good pinch of snuff
like a night out in Sheffield
like a greasy chip butty
Oh Sheffield United
come thrill me again
nah nah nah nah nah nah oooh
nah nah nah nah nah nah oooh oooh

I like it not only because it fits so well, but also because it goes past the single line chant into the full song territory and thus should be applauded. There are others too, which should be recorded here over time.

Another addition to the discussion of Manyoo fans singing “are you England in disguise?” It’s not so long ago that they were chanting “argentina” all over the place in the style oif the Scots vs England, I never quite figured that one out at all.
