    Best Sporting Chant?

    Come on, all you diehard sportsfans out there, enlighten us with your best songs.

    Here's my personal favourite

    (to the tune of Annie's song by John Denver)

    You fill up my senses
    Like a gallon of Greenhalls
    Like a kebab from Gino's
    Like a good sniff o' Glue
    Like a Night out at Martine's
    Like a split, fish and curry
    Oh, St.Helens rugby
    Come thrill me again!

    Not a sporting chant, but you can't beat the 'You Suck' given by 30,000 people to Kurt Angle every time he enters a WWE ring.

    Many of the more popular, well-known football chants first saw light of day in 1969 or 1970 - and one of the most enduring ones is still going strong today. Unfortunately, patents were never applied for.

    There was a production-line featuring a guy called Tony 'Prof' Rogers, his brother Gem ('noooo, Gem's a Sunderland fan'), Ray Barlow and the most intelligenterest member of Cricket Web. We used to assemble fortnightly on the back seat of the Wheildon's bus from Castle Donington going to all the Derby away matches.

    Our most famous 'creation' is sung to the tune of 'Land of Hope and Glory' - and I assure you that it was NEVER intended to have the chant 'and Leicester' in it. We probably made up around 20 or 30 chants and songs, trying them out at the away matches and then in the Popside at the Baseball Ground, but 'We hate Nottingham Forest' is the only one which really stood the test of time.

    Here we go - in all its originally-worded glory...

    We hate Nottingham Forest,
    We hate Leicester too.
    We hate eighty-nine others
    But Derby we love you.

    You never hear the original any more - even at Derby.

    (the 'eighty-nine' bit is because there used to be 92 clubs in the league. I always was a clever sod)

    Used to be 96 IIRC, then 94, now 92.


    FWIW my favorite chant is 'Come on Oldham' - classic

    Quite a good one from last season: During a match between West Ham (I think) & Leeds, the Leeds fans chanted "Going down, going down, going down...." & the West Ham fans replied "So are we, so are we, so are we...."

    COME ON YOU BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
