    Listening to today’s match and hearing Coventry singing all the same songs as us got me thinking. Has our downward spiral coincided with us adopting all Palace’s terrace chants? Is it actually nothing to do with Gino or Mogi or Duxbury or all the cowardly mercenaries who think they are so much better than they actually are, but really because we decided to adapt all the songs of a team we don’t like very much?

    You could argue that our downward spiral coincided with england winning the odi world cup. Once we give up that title I'm sure we'll be on an upward trajectory once again.

    Any time I've been to a pub before the game the old geezers have always had much more original songs, terrace chants are all just so samey aren't they?

    They don't really have words do they the Palace jumpy up and down men tunes?

    Just a lot of whoah whoah dee dum dee dee continued page 94.

    Like Kraftwerk without the instruments,tunes or talent really.

    Symptomatic of our decline it's true.

    We don't sing very much anymore as a fanbase full stop. Our much loved 1881 hardly start up any tunes at all, and to be honest when your team are playing as crap as ours there is not much to be happy about. Yes, we can sing songs to get behind the team and maybe ignite a bit of passion, but I do not think the "extra man"as the fans' motivates this side anymore. They have defeatest mentality and no matter how many songs we sing, that won't change.

    Singing is a myth.

    I've been to Smellhurst on numerous occasions.

    The HFs only sing at the start and then if they're winning,like most fans.

    Anfield was as quiet as the yesterday when the Arse were two up.

    Grant you they found their voices for the second half, " farking k*** head **** " expletives from some ex docker notwithstanding but very few home fans sing a great deal.

    I'd say Weeds were the exception.

    Much loved? The group that threatened the forum with legal action?

    Yeah, they're great.

    Circulation of various Pozzo Out chants will probably be up in the next couple of years.

    I was hoping he'd be gone by the end of ' Why didn't they ask Evans' tomorrow 10.15pm!

    If Gino has read your post, he might be thinking that his next move has to be a cheeky punt on Stevenage's manager. We desperately need the Scottish fraud in to provide some morale boosting of the trousers down goal celebration variety. This is what we could win.

    Source of annoyance on singing:

    For many years, I think of the Rookery singing two rounds of the song after we score a goal. For the past year or more, it seems we only do one round, or maybe a half-hearted start to the second before it dies out.

    Why did this change? What needs to happen to change it back?

    So you'd think that we'd sing two verses, given we get to do it so rarely!

    Thought I'd do a little check up on them given they have absolutely zero prescence at games or on social media anymore.

    Their last tweet was made on November 2022 and their last action on social media was liking a transphobic post from an infamous far-right and anti-LGBT group. How lucky we are to have them.
