Are they right or sucking the joy out of the game for fans?

Are these chants a bit of fun banter for the fans or should they be stopped?

On the one hand I can see their point but in reality I wonder if these people will ever be happy and where does it end?

The football experience for fans is becoming more and more sterile by the season and these guys won't be happy until fans are sat down politely clapping, not allowed to make eye contact with opposition fans in order to avoid triggering them.

I prefer chants that get behind the team, if I'm honest, but I think the banter chants can get an atmosphere going, especially when the other fans are quiet.

These chants are not offensive, and they can be quite funny.

Shrewsbury fans were poking fun at Hillsborough, Leeds fans chanted Aberfan, these are the chants that need to stop. I also don't like the City version of Hymns and Arias because there are bound to be City fans where this will cut to the bone.

They’re football chants. They’re not racist or homophobic, so it’s not as if they’re breaking any laws. They probably want the atmosphere to be flat like at the Devils.
‘Come on City, let’s go’
‘Come on City, let’s go’

If they’re anti fascists, stick to fighting fascism. Singing a jokey song about Scousers being work shy is harmless fun.

The wokeness is the comments is predictable. Why do people get so dramatic and OTT on Twitter?
Points deduction in a cup game for calling scousers work shy?! Get a grip.

The atmosphere in the old ice rink when there was a big game was fucking wicked. Better than most City games I've been to in the new stadium tbf.

We should be able to chant what we want to, but chanting these songs shows no creativity and is nothing the scousers haven’t heard before

I agree that the songs are shit but it’s not for some self-styled anti-fascist warriors to censor it. There are plenty of worse songs that get regularly sung and far more cringeworthy. Like ‘Always shit on the English side of the bridge’ and ‘it’s coming home’ fucking embarrassing.

Funny how "it's coming home" became "oh we were just singing it ironically" about half a second after losing to Italy.

Agree the atmosphere was kind of flat when you were there. People were suddenly more worried about where their children were to shout and make a racket.

They found their kids round the back of the Zamboni, where you were trying to bribe them with sweets.

You used to hang around down in skate hire by the arcade games and the vending machines. With a £5 note sellotaped tightly around your old boy hanging out the zipper of your jeans. You'd get the kids to que up to see who could pull it off. Winner gets to keep it you'd say.

I saw you up in the cafeteria, offering kids a bite of your hotdog. When I looked closer, I saw it was actually your penis in the bread roll. I thought there was mustard but in hindsight it was probably smegma.

Really small hotdog it was too.
