Cos you lot ain't too bad you aren't proper Scouse bastards like them.
you have to intellectualise everything don't you?
Not necessarily. I've known Kopites who's parents have told them not to support Everton cos they're the 'Prod' team. (Historically the Everton part of Liverpool had strong Orange lodge links). But i've also known Blues who's parents have told them not to support Liverpool cos they're the 'Proddie' team.... Some Everton fans get a bit of pleasure out of the facct that John Houlding-a leading orangeman-was one of the founders of Liverpool. However he was also a founding member of Everton.
I think most Blues would argue different as regards being 'proper scousers'. Our support is arguably more centred on the city then theirs.
What a bit like Celtic's ground and rangers ground both being in mostly 'enemy' territory?
All I can say is I have heard Everton songs about being Catholic and the same Everton fans bitterly dismissed Liverpool as Orange bastards.... but like I said the tradition history now.
During the 1950s and 1960s Everton were coined as the Catholic club
Oh we hate Bill Shankly, and we hate St John
But most of all, we hate Big Ron
And we'll hang the kopites one by one
On the banks of the Royal Blue Mersey
So to hell with Liverpool and Rangers too
We'll drown them all in the Mersey
And we'll fight, fight, fight with all our might
For the lads in the Royal Blue Jerseys.
btw fed just read there is a catholic chapel at one corner of goodison. is that true?
bit like the manc blues .
That's fightin talk (and bollox)
But isn't OT in Salford or something. You know. your neighbouring town?
Yes I know the song, but I know plenty of Orcs at Everton. Stuart McCall had a relationship with a section of our 'Orange' support.The 'Catholic' club nomencalture was more to do with a few irish players signing rather than some marked division as three was/is up here.
St Lukes is in the corner of the ground where the Gwladys Street meets the Goodison Road/Main Stand. It's an Anglican chapel as it goes.
yes but your 'proof' is not half as much sport as winding up Utd fans.
I spotted what you were doing there, and didn't think you needed any help, but here's a little tune:
You're the pride of
Your're the pride of
You're the pride of Singapore
As no doubt did Drunken Duncan.
I can't find the song I was actually looking for. The first line was about being from Liverpool the second line was 'my religion Catholic'. But I am well aware that for most fans this old bollocks is history.
But the Liverpool Protestant Party was only disestablished in 1974 and had Councillors up to the 1960's.
In 1974 its members were invited to subsume themselves into the local Conservative Party, which they subsequently did.
The obvious one but i don't think i've seen it:
your dad washes elephants
your mum is a whore.
My current favourite is a walsall chant sung at one of thier own players.
No spray no lay
no cash no gash
manny fresh fresh fresh
many fresh fresh fresh
Sung at Emmanuel "pop pop pop" Smith.
Mr. QofG's encountered this rather random one from other AFC Don's fans at a recent game, to the tune of "What shall we do with the drunken sailor", "More beer, fatter women. More beer, fatter women. More beer, fatter women. More beer, fatter women!"
Cardiff City fans to Coventry fans some years ago in the FA Cup "did the germans bomb your town?"
My daddy tought me this when I were just knee high t' grass hopper....
He's only a poor little goona
His face is all battered and torn
He made me feel sick, so I hit him with a brick
And now he don't sing anymore
van per-sie when the girl says no molest-her
That reminds me of the Man City classic: "Uwe's grandad bombed Old Trafford"
walsall used to sing this at former player troy deany.
Dontcha wish your striker was troy dean-y
dontcha wish your striker was a former brick-y
(pussy cat dolls)
always tickled me.
Why is this witty though? Am I missing something?
Some team, can't remember who, singing to the spurs fans "your wrecked your own town, you wrecked your own town, what a bunch of wankers, you wrecked your own town"
I have a brithon fan in the house, and his fans sings "you're too ugly to be gay"
our version works better:
He's only a poor little budgie,
His feathers all tattered and torn,
He started to sing, so I filled the cunt in,
And now he don't sing anymooooooooore!
More evocative like
I adapted this at Glastonbury following England's gloomy 4-1 defeat to Germany, which felt for a couple of hours as though it had spoiled the whole festival. I got a section singing 'Let's pretend that England won', and dancing around like idiots .
Inverness Caledonian Thistle to Cowdenbeath
(to the tune of the Addams Family)
They come frae near Lochgelly,
They havenae got a telly,
They’re dirty and they’re smelly,
The Cowden Family
The girls all have moustaches,
They’ve all got nasty rashes,
And nae cunt ever washes,
The Cowden Family
A chant that I started, and have probably repeated on here before.
Aston Villa v West Ham 1996. West Ham were wearing a change kit of yellow and claret. Me and a young friend started singing Harry Redknapp's rhubarb and custard army, and soon everyone joined in. West Ham walked out for second half accompanied by 3000 fans singing the theme tune to the well know BBC children's programme.
Years later I read the book West Ham til I dies by Robert Banks, and he said of the game,only memorable for the one and only appearance of the rhubarb and custard kit. My only sporting claim to fame!
doesn't fit the tune very well though
Its all in the inflection.
actually I can hear it working in a slowed-down brummie accent kind of way.
btw when ye play AT WHU do ye sing 'Chim chimanee chim chimanee chim chim charoo... we hate those bastards in Claret and blue'?
