I've been watching some of The Big Match Revisited shows that have been on the tv recently and it just struck me the amount of chants that were really familiar back in the '70's and '80's that you just don't hear anymore.

If a team were to go ahead against you or even just equalize the chant from the terraces would be
"You're gonna get your f***ing heads kicked in"

Towards the ref if there was a dodgy decision,
Who's your father, who's your father,
Who's your father referee,
Haven't got one,
Never had one,
You're a illegitimate referee.

If there was just a bit of handbags on the pitch it'd be,
Grimsby aggro, Grimsby aggro, hello hello.

Plus,
In your (whoever you were playing) slums,
You look in the dustbin for something to eat,
You find a dead rat and you think it's a treat,
In your (xxxx) slums.

When your team scored a goal it'd simply be,
Here we go
Here we go
Here we go
etc etc

Also one of the games today was Chelsea v Blackpool and the Chelsea fans were singing "You'll never walk alone"

Any other long lost footy chants?

My Dad used to sing this all the time round the house:

Bertie Mee said To Bill Shankly
'Have you ever heard of the North Bank, Highbury?'
Shanks said 'No,
I don't think so,
But I've heard of the Pontoon, GRIMSBY!

Yes definitely 100%. However, I can’t for the life of me remember whether it was a football chant.

"Zigger Zagger"
The "zigger zagger" is a derivative of the oggie, oggie, oggie chant. An oggie is Cornish slang for a Cornish pastie and legend has it that this was called out by Cornish woman to make their menfolk aware that they were about to drop the freshly baked pasties down the tin mine. The original chant was adopted locally by the navy and later used at rugby matches. Famous Chelsea supporter, Mickey Greenaway, may well have invented the zigger zagger version as there is little doubt that he introduced this to the football terraces (together with several other chants and songs) in the early sixties. With his booming voice, he would bark out the call and the crowd would reply with an oi, oi, oi. Later the title of a National Youth Theatre play written by Peter Terson in the late 60's about growing up in the terrace culture of the time.



No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

"You can run, you can hide, but you'll still go in the tide!"

"Eyes right, foreskins tight, arseholes to the front, we are the boys who make no noise we're always after girl private" Think, somehow this one might be subject to the swear checker!

"Who's that tw4t in the big black hat? Scuffer..."

Benny the Docker
The co*k of the north
He drinks in the morning and nighttime of course
He only drinks whisky and bottles of brown
'Cause Benny the dockers in town.

nanananana

His brothers in borstal
His Mams got the pox
His sisters a whore on the Immingham docks
His grandads a nutter
His uncle went mad
The Yorkshire Rippers his dad
