    Yeah remember that one very well and I reckon it probably went back to the late 60's and early 70's. It sounded like every City fan in the ground was joining in and it filled the whole of HR with noise.

    I remember when the Telegraph stand was open there were 3 or 4 lads singing about McIndoe and dancing around. No idea what the words were but they must have been on glue or something :)

    I remember us singing in the West End at Mark Crossley

    "Crossley is his name, Crossley is his name,
    He stinks of piss and has no fiends, Crossley is his name"

    We must have done it to other keepers but I can't remember

    I remember singing "Tina, Tina, Tina" at Shilton, must have been around the same time.

    We played Derby in a midweek game at HR and the day before the match Docherty admitted lying in court and for most of the game we just sang "Docherty's a liar!". We were losing 1-0 and eventually won 3-1 with 3 late goals and each time the euphoria died down after we scored we went straight back to "Docherty's a liar!"

    I thought they would have but for some reason singing it at Crossley is the 1 I remember, maybe he reacted badly? My Notts Forest supporting mate wan't too upset cause he hated Crossley and could never see why Cloughie picked him

    The suggestion of brutal violence is probably why this one should be kept well locked away, but.....
    "We dooooooooooon't carry bottles,
    we doooooooooooon't carry lead,
    we only carry hatchets to bury in your head,
    we are the loyal supporters, fanatics everyone,
    we all hate the Villa, the Leicester and West Brom".
    "City! City! City"!

    We are supporters of the Sky Blues
    Jimmy Hill he is our king
    Grorge Hudson is our scorer
    And Ronnie Rees he is our wizard on the wing
    ............ and more

    I think originally Bantams and names changed as required

    Jimmy Hill he is our king
    George Hudson is our goal scorer and Willie Humphries is our whiz on the wing.

    The lad at Yeovil in the first match in League 1 ( Stietch) I think came in for a heavy dose.

    Away at Scunthorpe a few years back some of our supporters were giving their keeper loads of that song - It was Joe Murphy and we signed him a few months later!

    What was that one that went "City score, City score, if you get one you'll get more...." It then went on to mention Wembley but I can't remember the rest. Over to you Rattles, OSB, Wheelfass.

    City score, city score, if you can score one you'll score more / four. Youll see our assembly when we get to Wembley so score city score.

    Not a song as such but we used to sneak a fog horn in the west terrace which was always good. Also, bog roll thrown onto the pitch when the team came out was another good one.

    I still just miss a bit of hostility to the away fans / team, not on about violence just not so much arse licking they get nowadays. When I was a kid if an away player came to take a throw in all the kids would boo, sky blue sam would give them the thumbs down and all sorts. Now it's all "thanks so much for making the trip, give them a clap".

    I too miss the hostility that hung in the air at games. That is why the Sheffield United game at home was my favorite for a long time.
    It was a throwback game. Forget the slaps, there was tension that night and it went both ways.

    This one's like a recount of a visit to a dodgy backstreet optician.

    Yes that was the best game last season(bar the cup run of course). Bit of atmosphere for a change and the hostility between the fans added to that.

    Never watched it Sir. Am I missing some sort of similarities?
