RoM Chants Competition With Prizes

The Republik of Mancunia runs yearly competitions for a bit of a laugh, with Mancunia Merchandise prizes up for grabs for the winner and runners up. Last year’s was in honour of Carlos Tevez, when after signing him RoM spotted a video of the Argentine dancing, and the “Can You Shake It Like Tevez” competition was born. The winner received a “Republik of Mancunia” hoodie which he wore proudly!

A year further on, the “Sing A Song For The Unsung” competition is launched.

Basically, this a competition where entrants will be asked to create a chant for a United player. But not just any United player, oh no, a player that doesn’t have a song, or at least, not one regularly sung at Old Trafford.

Rio Ferdinand (“Rio! Rio! Rio!” is hardly a song), Michael Carrick, Edwin Van der Sar, Dimitar Berbatov, Nani, Patrice Evra, Fabio and Rafael and Darren Fletcher are the available players.

You can simply enter with the lyrics chant, or, as would be preferable, create a video as well. The more creative the better. Here’s an example (by Mikeyt086) of what we’re looking for:

The winner’s prize is any t-shirt you want, in any size, from

For any questions or entries email us here, or if you’d like more information for yourself or to pass on, click here. Good luck!

Chants posted in the comments section WILL NOT be counted in the competition. You must e-mail them to the above address.

    Patrice Evra: Postaman Pat tune.

    “Left back pat, left back pat
    with his white and red cap
    Bombing down the left wing,
    banging loads of balls in
    He`ll make your right back look so fuckin crap”

    Berbatov: Anderson-son-son tune

    He told City to fuck off
    He showed Spurs who was the boss
    30 mill, we dont mind
    Hes now wearing number nine
    He told City to fuck off”

    Rafael and Fabio: He plays one the left, he plays on the right tune

    “Two twins from Brazil
    they play in defense, play in midfield
    Fabio is left, Rafael is right
    They will make you wingers look shite.”

  4. J says:

    NANI – goes like queen – want to break free
    he wants to score goals.
    he wants to,- score goals.
    and when he score goals he will flip side to side, and we know he’s unreal.
    he wants to score goals
    NANi wants to score goals………..
    And then he goes past
    and so fuckin fast
    and when he goes past he will smile, then will megs you, you really don’t know how.
    he is so fast
    NANI is so fuckin fast……

    Da Silva Twins

    Oh Fabio – He’s wonderful
    Oh Rafael – He’s wonderful
    Red Devils, just like the Nevilles
    The Da Silva’s are wonderful

    Oh Fabio – He’s wonderful
    Oh Rafael – He’s wonderful
    They’ve got the skills
    they were born in Brazil
    The Da Silva’s they’re wonderful

  6. Shreyas says:

    What about Rodrigo Possebon? No chants for him?

  7. Tom F says:

    He plays in midfield
    He does the samba dance
    That boy Rodrigo
    He has got no chants

  8. Drew Vader says:

    Viva Berbatovvvvvv
    Viva Berbatovvvvvv
    They wanted him in blue
    But he said “Fuck you”
    Viva Berbatovvvvvv

  9. Tevratov (get it?) says:

    in the style of ‘give it up’ by KC and the Sunshine Band

    Nani score a goal,
    score a goal,
    Naaaaani score a goal.

    Simplistic, but effective i think.


    in the style of ‘Her name is rio’ by duran duran

    His name is Rio and he is the best in the land,
    He does his best to keep the ball fom edwins hands.
    He missed a drug test and then he got a ban,
    But he came back to defend better than Terry can.

  10. jim says:

    because he looks like wacko jacko
    take annie and put in nani

    nani are ya ok
    are ya ok
    are ya ok nani

    youve been struck by
    a death spin

  11. RaelDemby4 says:

    The Nani chant is class, needs some polishing, but really class.
    How about;
    He can tackle, pass, head,
    Michael Carrick is a Red.
    Gerrard, Lampard, Fabregas,
    Your not fit to wipe his ass

  13. NorwegianDevil says:

    To the tunes of Rule Britannia:

    Rio Grande, Oh Rio rules the pitch.
    United never never never he will ditch!

  14. RedJam says:

    Ok, i know these ones on here aren’t considered but i thought i’d stick one on anyway.

    For Manucho….
    (To the tune of Sabrina – So Macho)

    It’s got to be Ma-nu-cho
    It’s got to be Ma-nu-cho
    Big and Strong
    He doesn’t wear a thong
    It’s got to be Ma-nu-cho

    etc, etc, etc.

    Anyhoo, feel free to plagiarize at will. If Manucho is to have a must be to this tune, surely!!?

  15. Suitcase full of Custard says:

    Red Devil- Left back Pat- I invented that! Red issue forum

  16. GriffGotti says:

    His armband proves he needs a slap
    Torres Torres
    The team he plays for are fuckin crap
    Torres Torres
    The spotty git with girly hair
    At the Euros he had a nightmare
    Fernando torres, liverpools number 9

    Not exactly one for our players, but excellent none the less. Cheers for the Heads up on Bleacher Scott.

  18. ForeverandEver says:

    To the tune of the flinstones
    Evra Ptarice Evra
    He’s the best wing back u’ll ever see!
    and if ur frank lampard
    kneel down and suck his pussy!

  19. Justin says:

    To the chorus of Karma Chameleon

    Dimi, Dimi, Dimi, Dimi, Dimitar Berbatov
    He Scores Goals, He Scores Goooals

  20. rdhanson says:

    We all agree…
    Ronaldo is better than Torres…
    He”s better than Messi, He’s better than Becks…
    Ronaldo is better than [sex] (We all agree……..)

  21. rdhanson says:

    I know this isn’t a new chant, but we should sing the entire ‘Red Flag’ chant.
    A lot of fans don’t know the entire song and think it only consists of:
    “We’ll never die, we’ll never die…
    We’ll never die, we’ll never die…
    We’ll keep the red flag Flying High,
    ‘Cos Man United will never die”

    The full song really firews you up and can be sung with all the passion it deserves. Here are the full lyrics:

    “United’s flag is deepest red,
    It shrouded all our Munich dead,
    Before their limbs grew stiff and cold,
    Their heart’s blood dyed it’s ev’ry fold.

    Then raise United’s banner high,
    Beneath it’s shade we’ll live and die,
    So keep the faith and never fear,
    We’ll keep the Red Flag flying here.

    We’ll never die, we’ll never die,
    We’ll never die, we’ll never die,
    We’ll keep the Red flag flying high,
    ‘Cos Man United will never die”

  22. rdhanson says:

    Right – I’ve read the rules now!!!

    How about this to the tune of “Non, Je n’ais regrette rein”:

    Oh, Patrice Evra…
    Oh, Patrice Evra…
    At the back….
    Or up in attack…
    He’s on crack….
    He’s – our – Patrice – Evra-a-a-a…!

    Ok, the crack reference could be better!!

    “Oooohh Dimi, Dimi

    Dimi Dimi Dimi Dimi Ber-ba-tov

    Oooohh Dimi Dimi
    Dimi Dimi Dimi Dimi Ber-ba-tov”

    “There’s only 2 D Silva’s, There’s only 2 Da Silva’s!”

    “There’s only 1 Nani
    Only 1 Nani
    He speaks Portugese,
    And does backflips with ease.
    Walking in a Nani wonderland”
