    Australian Ashes Songs vs Barmy Army

    I'm an aussie, but when it comes to support, the english kill us. The barmy army is the best supporter group there is.

    Trouble is that they will turn an Australian ground to an english sounding ground if efforts aren't made my aussie supporters to increase their vocal presence.

    Aussie aussie aussie oi oi oi is old, C'mon aussie c'mon is lame and we have nothing else. Accordingly, there is a site here, to come up with and use (print the PDF) songs for the aussies. Email new songs or different words and we can come up with enough songs to give the barmy army some curry.

    Gun idea for mine. Problem is, the English embarrass themselves and don`t care.

    You guys don't have Jerusalem, you're behind the 8-ball already. That song sends a shiver up the spine when it's sung in the stands. It got at least 8 renditions at the Oval on the day we won the Ashes, plus one in the streets outside and at least two at the victory celebrations the next day.

    Last time the English were here, I sat in the middle of the Barmy Army, next to that guy with the long white hair who I think is pretty high up in it. Awesome day. However,

    ... this does provide almost as much humour as their chants.

    I was pictured in a national newspaper over here sitting behind him at the Oval. They took a photo of him standing up and waving his flag, and you could clearly see me right behind him.

    ah Jimmy Saville, he was a few rows in front of me at OT, they hand out song books and the like.


    See the NSW premier was writing to Tony Blair because he's worried about English hooligans after watching the football WC. :raised eyes smiley:

    The Vic police chief said he's more worried about local fans

    Jerusla-who cares? You don't have it anymore and you forget that we aren't the English. The songs that mean something to you, probably mean nothing to us.

    It'd be like us telling the Barmy Army to do Khe Sanh or Working Class Man.

    Site updated:

    I do agree the Aussies won't outsing the English, but hopefully sheer weight of numbers and little more than the normal effort will mean that we won't lose home ground advantage.

    Who said we were all convicts you ******?!

    I for one are first generation australian of Anglo-Indian descent, my Grandfather having emigrated from India to England, having kids and figuring out that a small, cold island housing a former empire that has imploded isn't the place to raise a family or secure a future, came to Australia with his family. To boot, he was grandson of the Raj in his province. A far cry from the "convicts" you purport Australians to be. In my work, amongst 5 people, only one is more than first generation Australian, and of the balance, only half are even of complete English/Irish descent and 2 are bilingual as a result. Go home, you antiquated ****, that sort of mentality has no place in the 21st century, only the 19th.

    Another forum i saw put it best "Only the English would be stupid enough to send their petty convicts to live in a country better than their own". I'd add that, only the english would also let the better members of their society continue to leave now. Given how tough immigration is....
