    is not how the chant goes at all - quite obvious when you look at the original song name!

    It should be:

    This is how it feels to be City,
    This is how it feels to be small,
    This is how it feels when your team wins nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all....

    Just to expand on this one so it appears more relevant. The chant used to be

    "Mark McGhee, Mark McGhee
    Mark McGhee, Mark McGhee
    Drinking pints of whisky
    Mark McGhee, Mark McGhee"

    in reference to the club's former manager and his alleged hard drinking days, and of course with reference to him being Scottish. But with McGhee long gone, Calderon became the object of the chant instead.

    SO sorry to see the end of this terrifically entertaining blog. I've signed on to the petition, but, I suspect...

    Anyway, Chris, thanks for the laughs. I truly DID try to track down a packet of Spangles Old English to send you, following your blog about Newcastle's away strip, but to no avail.

    Scott McGleish.

    We've also had a variation on the Eboue chant for Jonathan Téhoué:

    I like Tehoue-houe
    I like Tehoue-houe
    I like Tehoue-houe
    I like Te-houe!

    59. RedBlueArmy92: I see exactly what you've done their, son! Commiserations for last night by the way.

    68. geniuscheshirevillan: Bother! Another one I forgot - cheers for flagging it up.

    71. bearded_shrimper: That's the first time I've been mentioned in the same breath as the Friday Rock Show - and I kinda like it.

    72. superhoop_85: Cheers, fellow Ranger - have to make up for it by winning the league next season. Ahem.

    77. Paddy: And I really like that one too!

    78. Paul Faithfull: Cheers Paul - enjoy Wembley!

    79. spurs1961: Glad to make your acquaintance after all this time - and a top chant to boot.

    87. rich_m: I knew we'd get the genius that is Arshavin in somewhere!

    95. iainmonty: Remember that one well, but it somehow slipped through the net when I was trawling back through the months of chants/banners etc.

    99. blogdubrib: Cheers ears.

    101. BaggieMike: As far as I know, the move will be happening sometime next spring/summer, but sadly my blog will be disappearing before the World Cup, as will Robbo's. I will, however, be tweeting anything of interest.

    103. Fufaface: In fairness it's quite an old chant and think it was in last year's round-up.

    The 'Spurs' chant-

    "Boom boom boom, let me hear you say Bale, Ba-le!"
    Spurs salute to Gareth Bale, to the tune of the Outhere Brothers' song.

    Was first sang by Barrow AFC fans, as featured in your Chants of the Week before some cheeky cockney nabbed it and change it to Bale instead of Barrow.

    Anyway it's a shame quotes/review of the week is not continuing, one of the few blogs I read! Always a good laugh. All the best pal.

    I've heard a few good ones at Hillsborough this season. Firstly, after appointing Alan Irvine as manager we chanted 'We've got Father Ted', because, well he looks like Father Ted. Then in the Steel City derby we sang 'There's only one Carlos Tevez', reminding the Blades of their pathetic excuse for relegation and finally, as we contemlated life in League One after the 2-2 draw with Palace, they chanted 'You are going down!', so we replied with 'You are going bust!' We'll keep 'em coming in any division. Up the Owls!

    But this blog must stay! It's the kind of thing that generates the feeling of a football fans' community across the coutry, or even the world. The cost of it is surely negligable, and the beeb will just lose the fans to Twitter or somewhere else if they don't keep Chris on their site. You know it makes sense! Where's the petition?
