    I don't mind football, but there are a few songs that really confuse me, although I guess they're not just confined to football.

    Heard this in durham after the england match against switzerland.

    "Rule Britania, Britania rules the waves, England never shall be slaves."

    What happened there? did we suddenly lose a few members of Britain?
    (Incidentally, I take britain to be great britain, not the britain that the romans meant, ie england and wales only, which still isn't just england!)

    And also another favourite:

    " England 'till I die, I'm england till i die..."

    Well your not french :roll:

    sorry, just find it quite irritating!

    One of my all time favourites was chanted by the Celtic fans behind the former Rangers keepers goal.

    "Two Andy Gorams....There's only two Andy Gorams"

    This was the day after a tabloid had suggested that said keeper was suffering from schizophrenia.

    at the leicester - leeds match (where leicester's fate was decided).. they leicester fans started chanting "we're going down, we're going down", to which the leeds fans responded "so are we, so are we"

    Orient vs Grimsby

    Grim fans: "We only sing when we're fishing, sing when we're fishing, sing when we're fishing" etc....

    Orient respond with the usual silence, then Grimsby score.

    Grim fans then sing "You're not singing anymore."

    My brother Owen responded with, momentarily later joined by the rest of the crowd, "We weren't singing anyway!"

    I reckon Arsenal fans, when addressing the 'fairweather' Gooners in league games could start a chant along the lines of 'Where were you when we last lost'! ;-)

    Neil well knows my hatred for the "england til i die" song... utterly mindless and totally obvious!!!

    Some of my favourite footie songs:

    "He's fat, he's scouse, he'll rob your ****** house, wayne rooney, wayne rooney!"

    [wistful champions league memories]After a large number of newcastle fans stayed for the postponed Barca Champs league match a couple years back:

    "We're supposed to be at work"

    "We're supposed to be at home"

    "Stand up if you've lost your job/missed your flight/are getting divorced"

    "Figo is a Geordie" (He was dreadful (as always) in the match in question)

    [/wistful champions league memories]

    General toon craziness:

    "Shoes off, if you love the toon, shoes off, if you love the toon....."

    In response to Liverpool singing "Champions League?? You're having a laugh!!!":

    "City of Culture?? You're having a laugh!"
