Me thinks that not alot of people realise why we are the Barcelona of the lower leagues.

Oh well, it could have been a Stockport song but we bagged it first

I remember singing hold me close by david essex in a pub in crewe once in the early 90's never rearly understood why we sang that song might have do with 70's songs that birmingham and stoke sang at the time

I am sure this has been mentioned but I am not reading hudreds of posts.

I hate that Northern b@stard song, its just so old and sooooo tiresome! I am sure the northerners just ignore it as well now...dul dull dull.

In fact I dislike all the songs that are cloned from other clubs songs (about 90% of them) and sung as if they are original.

I don't think the Northern B@st@rd song was cloned from another club - I reckon it was lifted from Hale And Pace.....

One of the most surreal is the one about the famous Graham Taylor going to Rome to meet the pope. I've never been able to make out the last two lines. Something about "she's dead"??

basically the graham taylor song is an inditement on ron noades, the last few lines are
"and ron noades mother is a whore,
she's dead, she's dead,
she's dead, she's dead, she's dead"

I agree. Ok, well maybe not quite as extravagent with congo lines but who knows how much longer we're going to be at this great ground? Let's make it as enjoyable and loud as possible because I get the feeling it just won't be the same in a 20,000 all-seater stadium with an average crowd of 5,000. Look how the atmosphere at Darlington has disappeared.

Let's go back to the glory days regardless of the performances on the pitch. Singing for 90 mins, yes please.. Let's rock the ER! :D

I have mentioned before that as we use statistical models so much in the future we will chant when winning the following,

Your tablet is getting the sack in the morning.

As the away support strike up a hearty round of something unique and witty (like we used to do when I were a lad) and the Ealing Road strike back with a couple of half arsed rounds of "We'll sing on our own..."

Cringeworthy, and factually bereft.

Surprised I haven't been aware of this thread. I've been thinking for years that the 'away' chant, 'stand up if you love Brentford' - especially before the newbees started coming to away matches - is pointless. Especially when we weren't setting the football world alight, we would get the same hard core support of 200-600 for significantly out of town matches. Would those of us that were there, bee there if we didn't (love Brentford)? Stupid chant!

Loads of rubbish generic songs these days that are sung by loads of clubs. Brentford has followed suit in the last couple of years :(

Sort of remember a few lines from a chant in the 70/80's that went

"My sisters a whore in the Hartlepool docks, my uncle's a pervert, jack the rippers me dad ................"

Has anyone got all the words ?

"Mark Warburton's football army" should now be replaced with "Matthew Benham's revolution" or "Phil and Rasmus's cerebral cohort".

We definitely need some new unique chants, but always same people who moan about our generic ones. Dont like them make some new ones.

I liked the Wigan "Que sera sera whatever will be will be, we're going to Shrewsbury, Que sera sera"

Quite liked away at Reading. Our lot sang "we saw you crying on the tele..." - the immediate response from the Royals fans was " you've never been on the tele,,,"!

Was going to mention the Wigan one, but wibs beat me to it, and I've now deleted that part of my post!

Now those, I find in an odd sort of way, amusing. They only work best the first time, though.

One that sticks in my mind, which had most impact only the first time, as it was original. At Birmingham after we'd both been promoted to the 2nd tier in 1993. On the last day of the 3rd tier season we were at Posh, they were at Stockport, every one now knows they lost, we won, unexpectedly to the outside world becoming champions. When we played at St Andrews the following season, we serenaded them thus:: "All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, Brentford won the Championship, Brummies won f**k all!".

There was quite a few that day.

Too soon
You started singing too soon.

We can recreate that one when Middlesbrough return to GP.

I loath and detest 'glad all over' Swindon play about half the record when they score. Absolutely bobbins.

You should never play music after a goal.

Hey Jude IS a Brentford song and has been since the sixties when Indain Joe, (Stanley of the Paddock) used to play piano and sing it in Brentford on Friday Nights.

What your saying is akin to stating that "Your Never Walk Alone" isn't Liverpools song
.....take a Scouse song and make it better

Some quality stuff over the years always worth revisiting

When AFC Wimbledon went to MK Dons: "Where were you when you were us?"

At Anfield, when the cat invaded the pitch a while ago, away fans started chanting "you only purr when you're winning",

also to the tune of Attack! "A cat, a cat, a cat a cat a cat"

Wycombe v Plymouth with 5 minutes to go comes a tannoy announcement. 'We're sorry to tell home fans that one of the two buses going back to town has broken down'
Argyle fans sing: 'One bus, you've only got one bus.'
A few minutes later comes the next announcement. 'We're pleased to say the bus has been fixed and two buses will go back to town.
Argyle fans chant: 'We want three. We want three!'.

Boring match at Highbury:
"Shading possession, we've been shading possession

Many moons ago, Man City having a less than pleasant time languishing in the lower leagues are entertaining Sheffield Utd, whose fans strike up with "We hate Wednesday, we hate Wednesday". To which the Man City fans responded with "We hate Saturday, we hate Saturday

Villa Park once, a young gentleman getting down on one knee in the centre circle at half time and proposing to his fiancée. Cue spontaneous chant from the Holte End "You don't know what you're doing!"
