One thing that always impresses me about United’s support, despite the flack our fans receive, is the vast songsheet we have. New songs are churned out on a regular basis with a lot of these being sung weekly at our home and away fixtures.
It always amazes me when the away fans sing a song or two, then repeat them for the rest of the match. The usual generic chants are always heard, along the lines of “We love you *insert team name here*, we do” or simply chanting the name of their team over and over. Boring.
A new chant was flagged up on the RoM forum this week and I wondered what you made of it…
“Viva Da Silvaaaaa
Viva Da Silvaaaaa
Running down the pitch
Can’t tell which is which
Viva Da Silvaaaa”
