We should be above singing about SHA, who the hell gives a s*** about them anyway? Singing about them is stooping to their level and we are way, way better than that.

For those that are unsure of the full version it goes like this. "As I walked up to the Holte End one bright and sunny day away away away. I spied a poor b-lose fan he was running far away away away away. I said to the b-lose fan it's time for you to die to die to die to die. He said yes I know sir ....... Holteenders in the sky. Yippeeh aye aaaayyyy yippeeh aye ooohhhh Holteenders in the sky. Yippeeh aye aaaaahhhh yippee aye oooohhhhh Holteenders in the sky". So even this song is about the dildo salesmen from Somali Heath. Time for a change I think!!??

Yeah, time to sing about ourselves, not them in my opinion. Apart from when we are playing them, I don't see why we should be at all bothered - or the other way round.

I agree about not bothering to sing about the B-lose. I did however vote for "Holte Enders in the Sky". I have to admit to not knowing the full version. I only ever knew the chorus "Yipee aye aay..etc." Oh well. More songs required I think. As was mentioned in the thread about swtiching of the tannoy music, we need a song for each and every member of the first team rathere than "There's only one....." I'll start the ball rolling. 1. Oh Tommy Tommy, Tommy Tommy Tommy Tommy Sorensen!

Jonah you are so right! I,m a Villa fan not a Blose hater! They are no rivals never have been in my eyes . It's only in their eyes we are rivals! Villa songs only The Bells are Ringing for the Claret and Blue!

We were never short of a fine variety of songs and chants back in the old days, the days when we used to wave claret and blue walking sticks in the air (until they were banned) as opposed to using them as a means of support. Over the years the catalogue of witty ditties just seemed to disappear. Sad really, and even more sad that we have to sing anti Small Heath verses at every home game, even when once again they are back in the minor leagues.

What about Spinky, and Birchy and Alan McInally. That's a good song. Could do with some updating tho...

Man of the match v Wolves. Seems more a vote for the best of the worst really doesn`t it?

Aston Villa:

Apologies for the title - I was looking for an inspirational Bruce quote. Unfortunately, the 'Bruce` I came up with was Forsyth rather than Steve.
