The campaign for Vindaloo Carew

Following on from a previous article when this was suggested I want to bring to the attention of those who may have missed it the first time around, the John Carew song sung to the tune of the vindaloo song think its fab and much better then the one we are currently using Carew Carew carews on fire

The basic words are

John Carew John Carew John Carew, John Carew nah nah John Carew John Carew John Carew, John Carew nah nah John Carew, John Carew and we all love John Carew He's gonna score a goal past you!!!! VILLA!

Can we try and publicise this and make this the new song for our 1st real cult star in many a year , think it really could add to the atmosphere and catch on

What do others think?

I have one burning question - will Maloney start tomorrow? Also I think it maybe work giving Berger a punt from the start.

i8doug - love the username - chant ain't bad either. A couple of weeks ago someone posted a chant which went: "He's claret and blue, his name is John Carew, John Carew, John Carew" which I thought was quite good as well. However, the Vindaloo John Carew chant is quite unique.... don't be shy Usual Suspect, Just do it! (akin Nike!)..... Taxi for Bazzah......

Nice chants lads but I think he will wonder why you can't pronounce his name right. Its pronounced CAREV with a V !!!!

Yeah and Darius should have been Da-rye-us but you can't let details like that get in the way of a good song. All together now - John Carew John Carew John Carew John Carew NA NA etc.

I like the Vindaloo Carew song although "He's gonna score a goal past you!!!!" Doesn't scan properly. There aren't enough sylabels to fit the tune. "He's gonnna score one more than you" scans OK but then are we being too pesimistic about the number of goals he'll score in one match!!!??? Anyway, I feel sorry for Ashley Young. Despite the odd half hearted attempt at "oh lay oh lay oh lay oh lay... Ashley, Ashley" there was no chanting for him last Saturday. I think there may have also been a chorus of "There's only one Ashley Young" when he was subbed which isn't really very original. Anyway... Come on The Villa!! Reading are doing really well so this will be a good test. A good away there win will defintely make people sit up.

Catchy, I Like it. Something I could chant along to when watching on TV. But as astonmilan noted, it is pronounced Carev. I'm aware of that, but Carew with a W sounds better

I preferred the more tribal "carew carew carew is on fire" from the west ham game....

The Vindaloo is a real winner, but how about.."we will score one more than you Villa!!" at the end so it becomes a team song at the finish

Big JC is such an important member of the team, he definitely deserves his own songbook, let alone one meagre dittie.

One problem with that song choice villa96, he aint bigger than me, thats the problem. At 6'4", we stand equal. Thats about the only way he and I are equal though, sadly.
