"Geordies at home, watching The Bill."
Sung by Boro fans during the second leg of their Uefa Cup semi-final at the Riverside.

    The Sittingbourne fans excelled themselves – a classy chant for a classless set of opposition fans.

  2. joe says:

    what about reading fans doing “lets all do the chelsea” whilst standing up and doing a diving action. It looked fantatstic on Tv with 20 odd thousand doing it! ceratinly one of the funniest chants of the year!

  3. Rob says:

    How about “He’s big, he’s red, his feet stick out the bed, Peter Crouch Peter Crouch”

  4. glenn says:

    or the other crouch one…
    “he’s tall, he’s mad, he dances like your dad, peter crouch, peter crouch”

  5. mof gimmers says:

    The Wanderers’ fans singing “He drinks, He drives, he spits in people’s eyes El Hadji Diouf” is a particular favourite of mine, as well as the City fans singing “City reject, city reject!” to Ryan Giggs… it even made Giggs laugh whilst taking a corner…

  6. Rodolfo says:

    How about “The referee’s a woman”
    Luton fans chanted this every time the male ref made a bad decision in a game against Derby.
