Strange chants: part four

This one’s definitely odd, but also pretty hilarious! Rice was signed by Brian Clough when Steve Hodge left his first spell at the club in 1985. Whilst never a world beater, he was certainly not the scapegoat that many Forest fans made of him (heh, some things never change!).

The chant goes to the tune of Yellow Submarine by the Beatles (the verse part, and sometimes leading into the chorus!), take a look at the accompanying image, and you should certainly be able to guess the chant that evokes this disturbing (and badly photoshopped) carnival of gingerness!

It’s usually reserved for when the team are playing badly – so it’s really amazing we haven’t heard it more over recent seasons, but the words go something like this:

Number one, is Brian Rice
Number two, is Brian Rice … (continuing to)..
Number eleven, is Brian Rice … (and into the chorus)..
WE ALL LIVE IN A WORLD OF BRIAN RICE!
WORLD OF BRIAN RICE!
WORLD OF BRIAN RICE!

The verse section has been known to stretch to likening all manner of things to Brian Rice, including the subs, the manager, the board, the goalposts and all manner of other things that occur to the fans as the song goes up.

Definitely good fun, if a little harsh on a man who once scored an absolute wonder goal for Forest at Arsenal in 1988 – but well, at least he’s still remembered on the terraces whilst Forest fans are around! :lol:
