I thought the "look at the scoreboard" chant as a response to the 340th chorus of "we are the army" for the day was pretty funny really.
I was thinking the exact same thing...
A mate of mine who was at the game yesterday said that they Army sung "we are the army" for 30 minutes continuously... He said as much as he loves the army, they need to get some new material...
