😲 ⚽ Chants in a million

With the advent of the mad fan free times at footy stadiums, we’ve lost much of the atmosphere from the game.

Burn me for heresy if you will, but being part of that atmosphere was what supporting Saints was all about. When I held a season ticket, it was in Itchen North, right next to the away fans. The back and forth banter was so good that often, I didn’t see much of the game. I’d watch it later after rolling in from the pub.

Chanting is a huge part of that, so in its absence, I thought we might commemorate some of the best and worst.

My easy starter for ten is Stoke City’s response to our sung statement that they were so northern, they ate off the floor.

They responded with “You are so Southern, you’re practically French” :smiley:

Over to you. Time to give someone else a “chants”.


Chelsea at home to Watford, their fans chanting,“You dirty Northern bastards”.


When Chappers hit that screamer against utd in the cup game and Ferguson responded by bringing out the big guns in the shape of Nani…

Fergie, you’re a cunt, Fergie Fergie you’re a cunt

Concise, well conveyed and informative, I always felt.


Our fans to Phil Thompson when he was irate at a referee’s decision

“Sit down Pinocchio, sit down Pinocchio”


The one that @SimplySaint and I always chuckle about was against Swansea a few seasons ago. They scored and it all got raucous with blow up dragons etc. Then we scored to the tune of “stick your dragon up your arse” only surpassed by the next goal to the tune of “where is your dragon now, where is your dragon now”. Happy days.


A really obscure one that I thought was brilliant.

A non-league club (can’t remember, may have been Cambridge City years ago) were in dispute with the next door allotment owners over some land. This resulted in

“Grow an avocado if you think you’re gardeners” and

“You’re gonna get your potting shed kicked in”

Anfield, some time around 1980. Saints losing 2-0 (quelle surprise).

Announcer: This is a practice Operation Anfield. Stewards and fire officers, stand by.

…a few minutes later

Announcer: This has been a practice Operation Anfield. Stewards and fire officers, stand down.

Saints fans: Burn it down, burn it down, burn in down, etc.

Large fat bloke in the stand closest to us flips his lid at this, stands up and waves a load of slightly unfriendly gestures in our direction.

Saints fans: One Billy Bunter, there’s only one Billy Bunter, one Billy Bunter.

One of my favourites was Everton at home a few seasons ago.

We are two-nil up because they’ve scored two own goals.

Our chant?

“Two-nil, and you still don’t sing”…
