You only sing when you’re winning

With the club backing supporters association ‘the North Stand Loyal’ and their tenure of, for now, at least half of the south stand in an attempt to increase the atmosphere down at the John Smith’s, I take a look at some of my favourite football chants from years gone by, sadly these are not exclusive to Huddersfield Town, but please see this as inspiration for future matches.

Football wouldn’t be football without some chants from the terraces. Football supporters across the country sing themselves horse every Saturday with some witty, and not so witty, chants designed to inspire their team – and get under the skin of the opposition. Go to any match with a decent-sized crowd and you’ll hear shouting and co-ordinated songs, and there have been many such chants throughout the years.

Fans are regularly referred to as the mythical “12th man” whose responsibility is simple, cheer on your team and encourage the players to find that extra yard, or killer pass.

With this in mind I’ve decided to put together a list of my favourites:

 

Sunday, Monday, Habib Beye

Tuesday, Wednesday, Habib Beye

Thursday, Friday, Habib Beye

Saturday, Habib Beye, rockin’ all week with you!

Sung to theme tune of TV show ‘Happy Days’ by fans Newcastle United fans at St James’ Park

 

Van Per-sie, when the girl says no, Molest her.

Following allegations pointed at the Arsenal Forward, opposing fans reworked the 90’s hit by the Artful Dodger and Craig David single “Re-Rewind”

 

His name is Rio and he watches from the stand

Set to the tune of Rio by Duran Duran fans would jeer the United defender during his ban for missing a drugs test.

 

What’s that coming over the hills, its Danny Adams, Danny Adams!

Sung to the Automatic’s Monster Town fans would applaud the efforts of their marauding left back

 

Park, Park where ever you may be you eat dogs in your country

Perhaps the most infamous football chant of all sung by the United fans.

 

Please get in touch with some of your favourites.
