    So, Jan Vertonghen aka Johnny Vertical (credit to whoever on here said that one) impressed a fair few people at the weekend that very likely weren't sure how to take him before.

    The crowd getting behind a player? Let's have a look at his name, will it scan with the chant? THE chant? Number of syllables is perfect. Let's give it a go, see if it catches on. Course it fucking will, everyone loves that chant.

    SUUUPPER, SUPER JAN...

    Alright alright, I joined in. Course I fucking did.

    Anyone reckon there's any chance, before this one becomes Jan's chant, that something original could take off instead?

    I really hope this doesn't get seen as another contribution to the current atmosphere debates cos I don't intend it to be. For the people that are singing player's names, it would be great to get some original chants going at the Lane.

    A poster on DML called Coys1882 came up with this number and I rather like it:

    Be great to see something like this take off, and some for the other new players.

    Too many words :avbshock:


    On the subject, its a fine line for me. I think its far more important that people sing, than what they sing.

    For example, its better to have 20,000 singing By Far The Greatest Team (a song that bores me to tears), than 50 singing Grand Old Team

    I agree with this. Too many songs mention those cunts.

    But other than that I like the song. :vert:

    Well, he played in Holland, right? Replace that line with "and if he falls on his arse, he'll take a break and smoke the grass" :biggrin:

    Big fan of this tune, I know Chelsea/liverpool do it for Torres and I'm sure other clubs do as well. If we could make it gooner free though I'd like to think it could get going

    Also, Sigurdsson's name gives itself perfectly to Rafa's song.

    You know it's going to be super Jan Vertonghen. It's happened already, it won't change. It would be great if our songs were about the club, and not the opposition players. Ledley King had two songs in his career and they both mentioned Sol Campbell and John Terry. A bit disappointing creatively.

    Are 2 Unlimited from Belgium, or Holland? Either way, it works... Badly.

    Jan Jan, Jan Jan Jan Jan, Jan Jan Jan Jan,
    Jan Jan, Jan Vert-ong-hen.

    Jan Vertonghen, he'll jump for the sky,
    No stiker too strong, no striker to high,
    Jan Vertoghen, won't give up the fight
    He plays for the Spurs and he does it with pride

    Jan Jan, Jan Jan Jan Jan, Jan Jan Jan Jan,
    Jan Jan, Jan Vert-ong-hen.

    No?

    This is perfect imo

    As good as the well written songs with several verses look on paper, they just dont work.

    We need simple chants that pissed up blokes can pick up on, and jump around to. I dont buy this argument that Spurs fans are not creative. Ive heard many a one off retort sfrom our fans that have people cracking up to.

    What times your minibus - Wigan 9-1
    Taxi for Maicon
    Your sisters your mum - Joey Barton/Norwich
    Here for the slappers - 4-0 down at Toon

    etc etc

    I dont hear other teams reciting the works of Walt Whitman when they pipe up....cant recall a new Man U, gooner, Pool or Chelsea song since I was a kid, unless its for a player, or a universal "we do what we want" type chant.

    We came up the slow "Oh when..." and now the slow "Glory Glory" is taking hold.

    Atmosphere has been pretty bad we all know, but lets not go OTT about how poor our fans are.

    EXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXACTLY!

    why the need to mention ANY Gooner scum (except when playing them directly) whatsoever in ANY of our songs is beyond me... when we can talk about a trendy, cultural European Dutch City instead!

    I'm still annoyed my previously mentioned Gylfi song to the tune of Sally Cinnamon by the Stone Roses hasn't kicked off:

    brilliant, would love a song like this to get going. I noticed West Ham fans sing part of twist n shout by The Beatles. They haven't adapted it they just sing the chorus but it sounds quite good.
