'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Idiotic Song Aimed At Gabby Agbonlahor

The Birmingham Mail have some interesting comments from soon to be former (or she former now.. and do I actually care?!) Blues manager director Karren Brady and I'm sorry to say, I agree with her 100%

She was talking about the Blues fans and the song they came up with about Gabby Agbonlahor aimed at his mom. This was a song picked up by the Cardiff City fans at our home Carling Cup game last week also.

Brady, soon to be on the Apprentice replacing the lovely Margaret the expressive eye brow lady (!) said:

'‘There are a growing number of disgusting chants on the terraces and I hate them. Agbonlahor responded with dignity.'

Bang on Karren, who lets face it, has to take a bloody horrible and unnecessary song from Villa fans (just for balance and to show this article isn't aimed at Blues fans with the suggestion that Villa / any other set of fans are any different or whiter than white).

There is banter, there is passion and then there is just straight abuse eg the rubbish Sol Campbell and Matthew Upson have to put up with. I don't get it, I never have (and I think the songs back in the day used to be just as bad and often worse) and never will. There is no need to be so revolting to these people surely?

I know some will think this is a bit prissy of me, it isn't meant to be, but there have to be limits. I don't care if a player is black, white, yellow or purple. I don't care if they are gay or straight, I don't care if they have lovely or horrible girlfriends and I don't and won't join in with songs about such unimportant subjects and I most especially would NEVER lower myself to call a players mother, wife or whatever pathetic names. That is totally totally totally out of order and no amount of wages or adulation prepares a player for having to listen to things like that.

Gabby, I agree, has dealt with it with great dignity and I hope he continues to ram the words down the opposing fans throats by doing the one thing that leaves them totally gutted - scoring against them.

Here endeth the sermon.

Whilst talking about songs, one incident that did make me laugh was a fan from another Vital site coming on slating the Villa fans for what he called the stupid Gabby song 'he's fast as.... wait for it... THOR' We had to explain to him that the word was f... not Thor..!

Made me laugh anyway!

On Sky Sports they wrote it as "he's fast & scores" which I found funny & that's what I now sing around my daughter if I'm watching game with her. (It's also true @ the moment!)

I agree 100%, Fear. Banter is one thing, but chants like this are nothing to do with football, everything to do with sad people whose lives are as empty as their minds. There is enough real hatred in the world without inventing more over a bl**dy game. Yes, I did say that out loud and I stick by it. Anyone who thinks football can be compared with life and death hasn't yet encountered the real thing. Shankly was an idiot.

Bob - I understand that Shankly actually said that as a joke but was misunderstood by the press and ever since has been misquoted.

Considering Karen has been tormented since her arrival as the 1st lady I have upmost respect for her saying this.... however it's part of the game and can only spur Gabi on with his goals as he wants to get one back over the away fans! Let them sing it - watch them go home empty handed!

Steff... If you understood the meaning of the word Irony that would be funny. Alas you appear to be one of the neadethals that football should do its upmost to maginalise and embarass at every turn. sad sad sad little boy.

I can vouch for steff, he's a top egg, it was said tongue in cheek, otherwise I would have removed it. Honestly, he's good people!

If Gabby was even fractionally upset by the chants he's a tit. Well, we know he's a tit anyway as he impregnated three women at the same time, perhaps he didn't have the best of upbringings, I blame his parents...oh, hang on!!! Seriously, though, football players are wrapped in cotton wool these days, it's not as though he's having bananas lobbed at him, is it?

Its a minor downside to being paid tens of thousands per week for playing the sport he loves. They don't chant after he has scored so it provides more incentive to put the ball in the net.

In that case, I apologise unreservedly to Shanks, GLB, and will proceed to trash the rag-writers instead. Oh, hang on, you can't trash trash ... :o)

Mr Fear and Steff. Just because you like someone does not mean that you have to defend such stupidity. In the context of the article it followed it was puerile and unwarranted. People are genuinely tired of the vile abuse being spouted by idiots and the first comment is a just another deflating example of the bigots winning, even if they are 'good people'.

Who was that one that got told he had a pineapple on his head for years after he'd cut it off? Ended up in early retirement. He did have a pineapple on his head though.

Brendan, I let your comments ride, because you did not, and do not know me, If you have paid any attention to the forums, which you obviously haven't, you would know my sense of humour, you would also know that I fully understand and frequently use "irony" which as you first stated would have been funny if I understood the word, which I assure you I do, thus making it funny, and you in severe need of a sense of humour. I'm also quite well versed in sarcasm as well, if you hadn't noticed. I made the comment and even put a smiley face at the end for the hard of understanding, this may have passed you by in your haste to let rip, now, correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it is you who has been offensive, you have called me a Neanderthal, stupid, an idiot, a bigot and a sad sad sad little boy! So let's put things straight, I'm a 46 yr old season ticket holder who lives in Wales and who supports the club through good and bad, home and away, with a song and some banter on the terraces like most long term fans, I'm not abusive, I don't Boo, I don't throw coins or cause trouble, I've been to university and also have my own business, I'm a pillar of the local community and do an awful lot for charidy mate (but I don't like to talk about it) and I assure you, I am very far removed from being a sad sad sad little boy, you've stepped over the line sunshine, I strongly suggest you wind your neck in, PLEASE feel free to pop into the forum and discuss things further with me (I'll even make you a thread in off topic, I'm such a nice guy!) you will find me most accommodating, or feel free to PM me obviously, you cheeky little scamp you!

I can't believe I missed this one.

Steff charity work that you don't talk about? Come on son putting 50p in a tub doesn't qualify mate! lol

Brendan far be it from me to defend the entity known as Monny love despite everything I try and teach him about tactics and subs but you have got Steff wrong here chap. It's not about excusing behaviour because you know somebody....you just did miss his humour mate. Nothing more and nothing less. It's not a dig at you because you don't obviously see our Steff on the boards, but to not put a finer point on it should a member on this site attempt to seek glory via chanting such ********* Steff would be one of the first to virtually slap them down and alert the moderators that we unfortunately have a retard amongst us.

Don't judge him by a comment he made in humour - and equally Steff it's bad enough you live in Wales...refrain my insulting people who don't get you please.

I know Bren is a regular on the frontend, I approve his posts - I however completely agree Bren you should get yourself on the board, you'll enjoy it! You'll also realise Steff is a tiny child that everyone ignores lol (runs and hides to be safe).

Brendanormsby, points noted mate, it was the point of the article as well though to be fair! (to which a lot disagree it seems, the forum thread also suggests people believe the songs to be part and parcel, just some for me are beyond the pale and I'll choose to give them a miss)

To be fair, Brendan is right, most reading don't know Steff, although the smiley sort of indicates he was trying to be tongue in cheek, wish I'd not bothered with the article now really! I can confirm PTP that Steff is a pillock of the community, you did say pillock didn't you, my eyes are a bit fuzzy today! :o)

Stef. Congratulations on the marvellous life you lead. I now feel truly humble in your virtual presence. Such a track record gives you the right to say whatever you like in whatever context. Silly me for failing to see the funny side of such a brilliant post, how could I miss the smiley and not realise that this was justification enough to allow the comment. I know realise that I insulted a deity and will await just vengeance in due course (or I guess I could just enter the forum).

Brendan, you should feel humble in my presence, that is normal, but there will be no vengeance laid upon you, for although I am all powerful and all knowing, I am also a just and benevolent Deity, and I have forgiven you because you did not know what you were doing : ) but in all seriousness please do come into the forums, at least then you can get to know me and the others, and know you are fully justified in thinking I'm a c**k!
