Good News On The Patrice Evra Chant

In the opening months of the season, RoM ran the “Sing a Song For the Unsung” competition, where we asked fans to think up chant for player who don’t have one widely sung at Old Trafford.

The winner was a chant created for Patrice Evra, which we created a video for to spread the word.

It is Evra’s first match back on Sunday, following his unjust suspension for an incident at Stamford Bridge, where he will be greeted warmly by our fans (just how long can we stand to see JoS at left back?!). It’s a nice coincidence that his return game happens to be against Chelsea.

Having been in touch with Pete Boyle, chant supremo at Old Trafford, he assures me he will be getting our Patrice Evra chant going in the Blaize before kick-off on Sunday. Listen out for it!

Tune : ‘I Am Sailing’
“Patrice Evra, Patrice Evra,
Came from far away
Across the sea
To Old Trafford
So fuck off Gabby.
He hates scousers,
Just like me.”

  2. klauq says:

    Splendid idea!

    I’ll be sure to listen to you guys singing it at OT, and I’ll make sure my team here in Malaysia sing it along at the sports bar where we’ll be watching our boys beat chelsea!

  3. RedDevil says:

    Excellent song….

    I thought Evra was going to miss the Chelsea match with his 4 game ban?????

  4. Andy says:

    come on u reds

  5. shepsii says:

    why fuck off gabby?

  6. SRAB says:

    Fantastic Scott, thanks a lot for sorting that out.

  7. Mic says:

    Evra will miss his 4th game against Derby RedDevil, he’s missed Boro, Stoke, Soton and then Derby, after that, he’s all set of the rent boys.

  8. RedDevil says:

    Cheers Mic Said, I’m glad my maths is crap and our man will drop straight back into the team; I think we miss his runs forward when Evra isn’t there!!

    Come on u Devils!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets smash the chelsea and make the scousers start pooing their pants

  9. daveob says:

    because Heinze was a prick!!!!

  10. King Eric says:

    Shepsii: why fuck off gabby?

    Because Heinze the previous left back was a cunt!

  11. Bud says:

    I love Evra, 10x better than the scouser-loving-prick Gabby…

  12. David says:

    Look forward to hearing this on Sunday, even more so 3 points against Chelsea :D

  13. olusanjo says:

    because gabby heinze wanted to join the dippers.
    dont you know that if you are associated with man united, you must have nothing to do with the dippers. FRIENDSHIP WITH MAN UNITED IS ENMITY WITH the scousers.

  14. Red-Manc says:

    Heinze = judus dipper in disguise YSB

    Evra = pure class, Red Legend!

  15. keanesmagichat says:

    brilliant scott, found this blog about 3 months ago…great job..
    its been great to see Heinze career stutter so badly at Madrid. Hope we play Madrid just to be able to give that cunt the bird

  16. shepsii says:

    “because gabby heinze wanted to join the dippers.
    dont you know that if you are associated with man united, you must have nothing to do with the dippers. FRIENDSHIP WITH MAN UNITED IS ENMITY WITH the scousers.”

    I am well aware of that! For some reason had forgotten about Heinze. That’s what happens when players leave United, as far as I’m concerned, they don’t exist!

  17. Red-Manc says:

    Shepsii good way of thinking that to be honest mate! Only if they leave on bad terms like the scouser in disguise did.

  18. Giles Oakley says:

    Great chant, love it.

    Also, how about:

    ‘When I fall in love,
    It could be for Evra…’

  19. AlexofMancunia says:

    Look forward to belting out a few rounds of it pre match in the Blaize with the Boyler leading the way!

  20. Wiggsman says:

    Shit chant in my view tbh

  21. Red-Manc says:

    Wiggsman gotta agree, its ok for a laugh on a forum but this will never catch on in Old Trafford

    “(just how long can we stand to see JoS at left back?!)”

    Players like O Shea are vital to our chances of winning multiple trophies so thats a idiculous statement.

    3 games now as a stand-in for Evra, no goals conceded instead of saying bad things about our squad players why don’t you give credit where its due?

    He is once again proving his worth to our squad at this moment in time. He has filled in very well at left back in the absence of Evra and has not let us down.

    Even the best players struggle to assert themselves when they are given no consistency in their playing time on the pitch. Now that he has got a run of games behind him, he is showing how reliable he can be.

  23. Scott the Red says:

    Come on, the difference between Evra and JoS is to vast to even mention. They are leagues apart and I for one am very relieved that it will be Patrice lining up against Chelsea!

  24. #9 says:

    Thats because Evra is arguabely the best left back in the world. But that does not take away from the fact that O Shea has looked a lot more comfortable when he has had a run of games.

    Fair enough I can’t wait to see Evra back in a United shirt but at the same time O Shea deserves praise for his recent performences.

    You don’t win leagues without the likes of him backing you up

  25. Marq says:

    I think we can give O’Shea credit for the job he has done, albeit against less lights. But valuable squad member to have. O’Shea gives us more air power at the back, not sure if anybody noticed, but he had been winning headers back there. But playing O’Shea takes away our pace of attack down the left which Evra gives so much. So we are taking about 2 different types of players. Sorry to say this O’Shea, but he can’t cross to save his life!

  26. Laos Red says:

    I would love to see Evra score a goal from one of his runs. Run towards the Oil Infest’ bench and take a gentlemenly (is that a word) bow in front of them. That will teach them a thing or two about Class, which clearly does not exist in their dictionary.

    On a good note, great to see our snappy left back ‘back’ in action. Bosingwa will be sh!tt!ng his $100,000 skirt with Evra and Ronaldo tearing down his flank. Come on you REDS!!! Show the greedy cheats how proper football is played.

    p.s. hope fox sports here in Aus land has a coverage of the prematch atmosphere instead of showing the wanky commentators pretend they know nuts about English football. Its truly annoying to have to listen to them. I always have the Tele on mute right up to the moment the players run on to the field.

  27. juneau#9 says:

    cant wait to hear this being sung and inflatable banana skins floating across the stands. gonna be amazin

  28. NickOGS20 says:

    Evra’s hugely deserving of a song, that’s a shocker though :/

  29. edmund says:

    pathetic, only idiotic devils fans would think of insulting others in their chants… chants are for your players, not as an instrument to insult others, evra would be very sad…
