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 – Everton

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

Manager: David Moyes.
Captain: Phil Neville
Stadium: Goodison Park (40,216).
Last season: 7th.
Leading scorer (PL): Nikica Jelavic (9).
Odds: Title 275-1. Relegation 30-1.

In: Steven Naismith (Free, Rangers), Steven Pienaar (£4.5m, Tottenham).

Out: Adam Davies (Released), Adam Forshaw (Free, Brentford), Tim Cahill (£1.1m, N.Y. Red Bulls), Marcus Hahnemann (Released), James McFadden (Released), Aristote Nsiala (Free, Accrington), Femi Orenuga (Released), Connor Roberts (Released), Jack Rodwell (£13.2m, Manchester City), James Wallace (Undisc., Tranmere), Joseph Yobo (£2.2m, Fenerbahce).

Kits

Key Man – Nikica Jelavic
Although the imposing Croatian striker has yet to play a full season in the Premier League, he is already a fan favourite at Goodison Park after having established himself as the Toffees’ first-choice striker. The target man was the club’s top goalscorer last season with 9 goals and David Moyes will be hoping the former Rangers man continues his good form as his goals will be very important for a top 6 finish this season.

Opening Fixtures
20-Aug – Man Utd (H)
25-Aug – Aston Villa (A)
01-Sep – West Brom (A)
17-Sep – Newcastle (H)
22-Sep – Swansea (A)
29-Sep – Southampton (H)

Probable Formation (4-4-2): Howard; Hibbert, Jagielka, Heitinga, Baines; Osman, Fellaini, Gibson, Pienaar; Naismith, Jelavic.

Verdit: David Moyes continues to get his team well drilled ahead of the new season and fired by the goals of the Croatian striker Nikica Jelavic, the Toffees will be pressing for a top-six finish harder than ever. The re-acquisition of Steven Pienaar is very helpful as the South African’s creativity and pace will be a threat for any team. If Jelavic and Steven Naismith click, the Toffees will be more of an attacking threat than last season but the lack of creativity in the midfield could hamper the team’s success. With their arch-rivals Liverpool expected to improve under Brendan Rodgers, I expect the Reds to finish above the Blues this season.

Prediction: 8th.
