    But when do you stand up to start clapping the players coming out? We need the drum roll otherwise I don't know what to do. All day. Brung. Back. It. This.

    I thought most on here booed when the team comes out anyway? (Getting their feelings known early.)

    Glad you got it - was worried it might be a bit cryptic for you.

    Indeed. Like you, I simply don't know what to do at a game unless I'm told.

    What figure does the petition need to get to for a parliamentary debate?

    Would Javi have gone three at the back, if a certain Jonny Keating banger was ringing in his ears?

    I don’t bloody think so.

    Im Still Standing means Im Still Standing. What you Zcarteers don't realise is that in the longer term we will win more games under Im Still Standing.

    I think you'll lose more but complain that I'm still standing hasn't been implemented in the right way, volume too low, too much treble etc. The decision was based on lies and you damn well know it.

    This club did perfectly well before the 1960s when Zcars came in. We can again. You lot have no faith in this club. Time we stood on our own two feet again!
    The £35 we can save in zcars royalty fees will eventually filter through into developments in the sensory room and a senior discount on match day tickets.
    Its time we stopped paying the PRS gravy train of unelected bureaucrats.

    I'm Still Standing is difficult to applaud with and seems to generate some weird variations on the clap-a-long around the ground. It does not encourage the players to march out like gladiators for the game ... maybe they should practice walking out with different music on the training ground. I have to say, I like what Everton have done with the sirens and Z-cars ...

    Maybe we should ask Elton to compose a piece of music - we have the Premier League music imposed every week ...

    If we're going the siren route, how about Blockbuster from The Sweet?

    The 'We haven't got a clue what to do' line would be typically self deprecating.

    Did it?

    I imagine we played endless 4-5 defeats at teams like Aldershot on Christmas Day morning in the lower reaches of Div 3 South, football having been like that then.

    That would be a great song to run out too.

    Perhaps the club could commission a small group of say 3-4 of our more socially awkward fans to produce new lyrics to zcars to liven it up a bit?
    It can mention us being the greatest club in history and our penchant for sending other teams home with nothing for their tea.
    Perhaps even a video with these wise and beautiful men singing the new lyrics awkwardly off of sheets as if it was the first time theyd seen them and as if they now weren't entirely sure it was a good idea. Some clips perhaps of them walking to a game and waving in the oddest way anyone has ever waved.

    Bonus points if the vocals are both flat and out of sync with the music

    It shows potential.
    Have you got a xylophone for the background music?
    Are you good at hiding your face behind old programs that presumably symbolise the first game you went to?

    "Give three cheers for smashing yellow lads" I said this in my head in the voice of the Donald Stott

    Can someone start a petition for this please? It'll be a very important moment in our histo-histo-history.

    Ill put it on the agenda for the WML AGM in about 6 months so it can be properly debated, you don't want to be rushing in with a petition if we don't have a mandate

    I'm just thinking, if the whole concept where reversed and we had been running out to an Elton John song for years, and some clown decided to change it to Z Cars, what the reaction would be.
    My opinion, I'm Still Standing might not be the best EJ. song, but it's time to make a new tradition.
    Can't anybody other than me see that Z Cars is absolute pants?

    Somebody suggested we changed it due to the club's dislike of Everton....

    A mashup of the intro to 'The Circle Of Life', flowing into the theme from S Express, and ending with ''Tomorrow belongs to me'. Later claiming that we have never heard of Adolf Hitler.

    It would be the new American Trilogy.

    New tradition is an oxymoron. As music, Z Cars is pants, but as sounds to take the field to it's perfect - partly because the drumming intro creates that sense of expectancy and also because of its association of our rise from the 4th tier to almost best of the rest in the Prem
