Strange chants: part two

A blockThis little number is quite a common one, and is often wheeled out to the inevitable “You’re not famous anymore” type chants we get from all and sundry visiting the City Ground these days, or indeed on our travels, and it goes a little something like this:

You’ve never won f**k all!

Let’s ignore the fact for a moment that it’s an oxymoron, in fact no, let’s not ignore it – if you’ve NEVER won ‘f**k all’, then by logic you HAVE once won something. This is ironic, because given that it’s been a good while since we won anything of note, more often than not the recipients of this ill thought out taunt are often in a similar boat, albeit with a longer gap since when they last won something.

Huddersfield, for example, were on the receiving end of this chant last season – they’ve won the league three times, twice more than us, admittedly this was in the 1920’s, so they need slightly longer memories than us to remember the glory days, but you get my point.

I suppose this is linked to the whole ‘terrace wit’ story I posted a few days ago – firstly, this chant is silly because it doesn’t make any grammatical sense, and then secondly, it is incredibly baby executed by indiscriminate Reds fans and directed at supporters of teams who have an illustrious past.

  1. The reply to “you’re not famous anymore” has since changed to “you’re not famous anyway.”

    Enjoyed reading the strange chants category! A shame the last one was posted 13th April 2007.. time for an update? 🙂

  2. I can’t think of any more! Feel free to submit some, though!
