By FAR The Greatest Team…

If you’re unfamiliar with Studs Up Football Club, it’s an excellent football clothing line started by Chris Toy of Studs Up fame. They’ve got a great range of football t-shirts, polos, sweatshirts and more on the way all inspired by football culture. I’m delighted to say I’ve partnered up with SUFC to get all RoM readers 10% off their full range of gear until January 16th. Simply use code: ROMREADER at checkout.

If you’re deciding what to get, one shirt in particular grabbed me as perfect for United fans – the excellent Red “Greatest Team” shirt.

You hear it all around the country.

“And it’s *insert club name here*, *insert club name* FC, we’re by far the greatest team, the world has ever seen…”

It doesn’t matter if you’re nowhere near to being the greatest team the world has ever seen or whether the name of your team doesn’t even fit in to the song, you will sing it.

“And it’s Sun-der-lerernd Sun-derlerernd FC!” is one of my favourites, along with “And it’s Hull-ull City, Hull-ull City AFC”. Chelsea change their name to ‘super Chelsea’ to make it fit whilst Watford go as far as changing the song to “And it’s Watford FC, Watford FC are great.”

Then we have football clubs like Manchester United who are one of the few teams who can actually justify singing that song every week, and not just because our name has the correct number of syllables! From the Busby Babes to the Treble winners, from the first English club to win the European Cup in ’68 to our team of kids who would ‘never win anything’ that won the Double with Cantona in their first season. George Best, Denis Law and Sir Bobby Charlton all were named the best player in Europe within the space of 5 years, beating the likes of Eusébio, Franz Beckenbauer, Ferenc Puskás and Johan Cruijff. Charlton insisted that Duncan Edwards was the best he’d ever seen though, one of our eight young lads who lost their lives before they’d hardly even started to set the world alight. Under Ferguson, we’ve won 11 titles in 18 years and since 1990 have never gone longer than just one season without a trophy, lead by the likes of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.

Not arrogant, just better.

Click here to buy yours and represent the only club truly worthy of this song and shirt. SUFC ships internationally to any country around the world from the USA for a low flat rate fee and don’t forget to use code: ROMREADER at checkout to get 10% off! Offer ends January 16th.

  2. keegan4england says:

    Pride of all Europe!

  3. Dec the red says:

    I hate that chant when its sung by teams like us because most of our chants are a lot more original than that

  4. Ulster Red says:

    imo all the stock on that site is crap.

  5. caliyella says:

    picked up the red greatest team shirt and the one with the hanging boots for my brother so got free shipping as well as the 10% off, thanks scott for sorting it out

  6. Dazbomber says:

    This is a chant Pogba Pogba ,the lad is class

  7. Aig alex is god says:

    Dzeko “i have heard most fans in manchester are man city fans” . Oh dear

  8. Ulster Red says:

    i reckon a certain gary cook has asked dzeko to say it. Where else would he have “heard it” from.

  9. devil without a cause says:

    arsene wenger has won the manager of the decade award…………… WTF

    what exactly has his team won in the past half decade????????? any1?

  10. Injury Time says:

    Hate that chant!!!

  11. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Dear oh dear. Diluded prick and he aint even touched a ball in the best league in the world.
    Dr. Mr Dzeko, Hope really comes as a bitter shock to you Sir!

    Hope we stuff the ball up this ones arse! Feb 13, can’t wait!

  12. Zelh says:

    smartalex – Barca would never let him go. apart from that I’m not interested in a fabregas-esque saga.

  13. willierednut says:

    Sergio Biscuts? We don’t shop in Harrods no more lads.

  14. bettathedevilsweknow says:

    Edin Dze Klouds! 12 months time he will be gettin loaned out to a serie b team coz carlos has threw his dummy out again about being first choice striker.

  15. harry says:

    I hate this chant, the Arsenal and Leeds fans were singing it at the same time on Saturday!! What’s the point in that?? I also hate, “Your support, your support, your support is fucking shit!! Yooouuurr support is fucking shit!”. Just because some truly shit fans (Arsenal) sing louder for those 30 seconds doesn’t mean they have better support, which the chant would imply. Clubs should stick to the songs that only apply to their club, unless they don’t have any!!

    We are the pride of all Europe, the cock of the north…..

  16. sports24x says:

    manchester united..

  17. Ulster Red says:

    we hate the scousers, cockenys of course and leeeeeeeeeds.

  18. Chicharito14 says:

    The 24-year-old hitman added: “I’m very pleased. I’m here at a big club like Manchester City” diluded sounds more like it.

  19. MyCowIsTheBest says:

    guys is our game versus West Ham later today?

  20. Raizzen says:

    Lip lip service Dzeko. In about a month time he’ll be talking about how tired he is and wanting to retire. And make a sudden reverse when splashed about some more cash. Its a routine when you want to get a pay rise in Ciddeh.

    Then he goes on about getting tired again.

    Fuck you Dzeko. And fuck your so called ambition$.

    Sorry off topic. Just gotta let it out.


  21. TK says:

    Dear Dzeko AKA” Money mercenary”, you will discover in less than six months that ,Manchester Shitty is a joke not a massive club like what Gary Cock has told you.

  22. willierednut says:

    Fuck City already.

  23. Costas says:

    Dzeko is a perfect example of how too many headers can kill too many brain cells.

  24. Zelh says:

    Costas – It would be way funnier if anyone would do a Lebron and talking to the press after joining Citeh with the words “What should I do?” lol :)

  25. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Also off topic (what do you expect when all that is posted is a t-shirt add?)

    Paul Pogba’s brilliant goal has made it on to 101 great goals.
    Surely worth a second look, even for you jaded lot!

    FA Youth cup stunner against Portsmouth FC opened the scoring.
    Sir Bobby and SAF and David Gill, out there in the rain. Top support for our youngsters!

  26. YorYor says:

    Mancini: He is different from the other players we have. Now we have a good mix.

    Whatever Mancini. As long as he doesn’t come to blows on the training ground with whoever.
    One likes to fight, one likes to declare that he’s jaded and wants to retire. I hope for once City doesn’t make a joke of a signing. But that’s pretty hard cause Dzeko obviously is after the dosh. Maybe he’ll suddenly realise he’ll still see the numbers roll in even if he suddenly suffers his career injury crisis which all players do.

  27. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Speaking of the shop window, this one is interesting. There is chatter that we might go for Graig Gordon. That would do a trick in my view. Strappin lad, quick as lightning, 6’4″ or something. That lad can play, but worry that he is a bit injury prone. I guess he won’t see as many knees to the head behind Rio and Vida as he does with Stevie Bruce’s boys. Contracts up soon as well.

  28. Costas says:


    Lol! Every new Shity player needs to come up with a video like that.

  29. Redfanfan says:

    @ Zelh

    Would be perfect mate… Brings us back to the tatoo thing ;)

    Heard him saying : most mancs are shitty fans…

    Fuck you money-grabbing-whore!

  30. Kings says:

    According to Dzeko, there is only club in Manchester, which prompted hysterical laughter from the media, and one of them was heard mentioning about his goals against United. They all love talking about that. Cunts.

  31. Vish says:

    Scott, fancy sending all those statistics to Dzeko to prove him wrong?

  32. MG says:

    On those wages 150,000 plus or whatever they are

    Dzeko would sell his mother out – so who the fuck is he kidding

    “I have come to in trophies”

    Yeah good luck on that – chicharito has more of a chance than you’ll ever get sunshine

  33. MG says:

    win not in bloody typo :)

  34. Zibbie says:

    FletchTHEMAN thanks for the Pogba goal.
    willierednut says: Man Utd still shops at Harrods they just don’t but anything? Berba the last big buy. They focus on the 7-15 million young talent with up side.Sergio Busquets. Pipe dream? Maybe I think SAF remakes the team with 5-7 out and 3-5 in with one big signing of 20-25 million with a top goal keeper and 2-3, 7- 15 million. Or 2 bigger signings and a top goal keeper. I see 40-55 million out in this and the summer window. With retirement comes no money such as VDS and Gary. SAF will sell 3-5 players as well with Giggsy and Scholes staying one more year.
    I have followed the BEPL for 7 years now, I have seen SAF spend big on Rooney, Carick, and Berba. Teves was on the free. You lads who have followed them your whole life have seen them spend big. With some good to great results and some bad ones. Rio was big money.
    Sanchez looked good against AC Milan.

  35. Wednesdayx says:

    very nice, looks good in red! low flat rate fee to USA? Yey!

  36. Dave Malaysia says:

    Looks good ,wonder if its avaliable in Malaysia.
