London, Sept 18 (ANI): A football match is never the same without the witty chanting of the crowd from the side, egging the players on or at times putting them down.
The best of ditties have now been compiled by ditty fan Chris Parker in a book called ”One Ginger Pele”, which is in honour of the ditty Spurs fans devised for redheaded defender Gary Doherty, reports the Sun.
Some of the ditties are quite hilarious, while others show their ingenuity, such a ditty is the one composed by Oldham fans:
Give us a T. Give us an I.
Give us a T. Give us an S.
What do you do with ”em?
”Old”em! ”Old”em!
Running close to them was the ditty made on Colchester United star Dean Gerken’’s surname by his rival. The ditty ran to the tune of Guantanamera:
Stayed in a burger.
You should have stayed in a burger.
Should have stayed in a bur-ger.
An individual ditty that was sang to Swiss defender Bernt Haas, during his time at West Brom, went according to the tune of Go West:
Bernt Haas.
Shouldn”t light his farts.
Bernt Haas.
Shouldn”t light his farts.
While at Barcelona, Ronaldinho received stick for his toothy grin when, to the Conga tune, Liverpool fans sang:
Cilla wants her teeth back.
Cilla wants her teeth back.
La la la la, la la la la.
Big John Hartson was an easy target for Rangers fans during his time at Celtic. Their version of All Things Bright and Beautiful became the cutting:
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small.
All things wise and wonderful,
John Hartson ate them all.
Part-timers Windsor And Eton did their best to drum up work for tradesman defender Dave Tilbury.
To the tune of Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay, they sang:
We”ve got Dave Tilbury.
He”ll paint your house for free.
He quotes and estimates.
He paints and decorates.
Chelsea fans mocked Turkish side Galatasaray with this ditty:
You”re shish. And you know you are. You”re shish . . .
Perhaps the last word ought to go to the Manchester City fans who were initially very accommodating to randy Sven Goran Eriksson when he took over as boss at the start of last season.
To the tune of Lord Of The Dance the delirious fans chanted:
Sven, Sven, wherever you may be,
You are the boss of Man City.
You can **** my wife, on our settee,
If we win the cup at Wemb-er-ley
The compiled One Ginger Pele (New Holland 4.99 pounds) will be out on October 1. (ANI)
