Top 10 Funniest Football Chants

Funny-Football-Chants

When you are watching a football match in the stadium and your team is losing, then there is only one thing that can make you feel better and that are the hilarious chants and songs that just can’t stop you laughing.

Here are the 10 chants from the Premier League which we think are really funny…

1. Leeds Fans

‘You don’t know what you’re doing!” – 30,000 Leeds fans advise a man proposing on the pitch to his wife at Elland Road that marriage isn’t for everyone.

2. Emmanuel Petit

“He’s blond, he’s slick, his name’s a porno flick.” – Arsenal fans obviously think Emmanuel Petit has starred in a few choice home movies during his time. He wasn’t a bad footballer either.

3. Ashley Cole

“Oh Cheryl Tweedy you are the love of my life. Oh Cheryl Tweedy I wish you were my wife. Oh Cheryl Tweedy, We hate Ashley Cole too.” – Heard around many Premier League grounds as every red-blooded male in the land questions Ashley Cole’s decision-making in his private life.

4. Peter Crouch

“He’s big, he’s red, His feet stick out of bed. Peter Crouch!” – Liverpool fans were proud of their 6ft 7 striker, for whom the word gangly doesn’t do it justice.

5. Djimi Traore

“Don’t blame it on Biscan, don’t blame it on Finann, don’t blame it on Hamann, blame it on Traore. He just can’t, he just can’t, he just can’t control his feet…” (to the tune of Blame it on the boogie) – Liverpool fans embraced Djimi Traore’s own goal against Burnley as something of a masterpiece, even granting it its own song.

6. Bobby Zamora

“When you’re sat in row Z, and the ball hits your head, that’s Zamora.” – Fulham fans put on a brave face regarding striker Bobby Zamora’s scoring record for the club and inspired him to greatness with this song. Not exactly greatness, but he did win an England cap.

7. Habib Beye

“Sunday, Monday, Habib Beye. Tuesday, Wednesday, Habib Beye. Thursday, Friday, Habib Beye. Saturday, Habib Beye, rockin’ all week with you!” Newcastle fans enjoy a good sing-along about defender Habib Beye during his time at the club. It’s fair to say the Villa fans didn’t appreciate him quite as much.

8. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

“You’re just a fat Eddie Murphy” – Newcastle fans picked their doppelganger of the week when Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink visited St James’s Park. To be fair to Jimmy, even he laughed.

9. Tim Howard

“Tim timminy, Tim timminy, Tim Tim Tirooo. Weave got Tim Howard and he says f**k you!” – Everton fans love Tim Howard, their American goalkeeper, Tourettes Syndrome and all.

10. Rafael Benitez

“You’re just a fat Spanish waiter.” – The Middlesbrough fans spotted Rafa Benitez in their local tapas bar the night before the game with Liverpool. If Middlesbrough has a tapas bar that is?

Premier League 2012/13 Team Preview – Southampton

Welcome to IntoTheTopCorner’s team-by-team preview to the new Barclays Premier League season. Here we look at Southampton’s vital stats, their summer transfers and analyse their chances.

Manager: Nigel Adkins.
Captain: Dean Hammond.
Stadium: St. Mary’s Stadium (32,689).
Last season: Promoted as Championship runners-up.
Leading scorer (CH): Ricky Lambert (27).
Odds: Title 1000-1. Relegation 5-4.

In: Nathaniel Clyne (£2m, Crystal Palace), Steven Davis (Free, Rangers), Paulo Gazzaniga (Undisc., Gillingham), Gaston Ramirez (£11.8m, Bologna), Jay Rodriguez (£7.6m, Burnley).

Out: Bartosz Bialkowski (Free, Notts County), David Connolly (Released), Harley Dean (Free, Brentford), Ryan Doble (Free, Shrewsbury), Tommy Forecast (Loan, Gillingham), Dan Harding (Undisc., Nottingham), Lee Holmes (Free, Preston), Radhi Jaidi (Retired), Aaron Martin (Loan, Crystal Palace), Aaran Racine (Released).

Kits

Key Man – Adam Lallana
The classy playmaker has attracted a lot of interest from many Premier League clubs in the past year or so, and was the Saints’ best player last season. He was the source of a lot of Saints’ best work in the final third and broke into double figuers last term. His form this season will be vital for Southampton’s hopes of surving the drop and staying up in the Premier League.

Opening Fixtures
19-Aug – Man City (A)
25-Aug – Wigan (H)
02 Sep – Man Utd (H)
15-Sep – Arsenal (A)
22-Sep – Aston Villa (H)
29-Sep – Everton (A)

Probable Formation (4-4-2): Davis; Clyne, Hooiveld, Fonte, Fox; Lallana, Davis, Hammond, Ramirez; Rodriguez, Lambert.

Verdict: The Saints marched back up to the top flight following successive promotions from League One and the Championship, but their return has been a long time coming and expect it to be a tough campaign at the St Mary’s. Nigel Adkins’ defence could prove the weak link. Kelvin Davis in goal has played out of his skin for the south coast side in recent years, but both centre backs Jose Fonte and Jos Hooiveld are inexperienced at the top level. But there is no doubt that Southampton’s strength is their firepower, with Lambert, Lallana, Rodriguez and now the recent addition of Gaston Ramirez. Adkins boasts creativity in abundance and frontmen who can be relied upon to create and take chances when they arrive. Ramirez’s signing from Bologna is a huge one and proves the ambitions of the club. I think Southampton will stay up with the firepower they have.

Prediction: 15th.
