Viva Ronaldo: New United Chant

Following Anderson’s chant now being heard inside the ground, a new Ronaldo chant is doing the rounds. Does it have the potential to replace “He plays on the left…” as the anthem sung whenever Ronaldo scores?

    Definitely not as good as he plays on the left…

  2. jsos says:

    i rather fancy it.. and i reckon its a bit more like home to him. either way, more singing for our golden booted red!

  3. ILamb says:

    I just heard, and like,

    To the tune of “That’s Amore”

    When the ball’s in the goal
    It’s not Giggs, It’s not Scholes.
    It’s Ronaldo….
    It’s Ronaldo….

    I like it… I think both songs can be used together for a while, it’s not like one has to go..

    I like the way our chants evolve and the fact that we are quite inventive..

    It’d kill me to sing the chants of a Spurs or Arsenal fan!

    What a load of rubbish, it sounds like a load of mumbling to me.

  6. Chef says:

    LOVE IT!!!!

  7. Tufty says:

    Not exactly a new chant.
    The more clued up United fans would have heard this over 3 years ago, albeit with the wording “We’ve got Ronaldo” instead of the “Viva ronaldo”

  8. Jas Rai says:

    Quality, especially if we get the flags and scarfs going with it!! bouncing like the lyon fans were!!

  9. Tom F says:


    Well it’s a new chant then isn’t it? It has evolved, like all chants. Most chants started differently but have new sounds / words as time goes by.

    its great.
    and what about the melody?
    whats is it? :)


    nothing compares to “Uhaaa eric cantona..”

  11. ben says:

  12. besher says:

    nice one but i would like to know the words of the song that was sung to him after scoring lyon goal my english is bad so i couldnt understand any thing but the word (ronaldo) and i liked that song a lot could any one give to me and i think it was sung to him after his hatrick against newcastle

  13. Sam says:

  15. Dr Shah says:

    it was a massive hit at the liverpool game in the stret end. it was omni-present, going on as a background chant throughout the whole game…. the same way the “bunch of bouncing busy babes” chant goes on for like 10 minutes at a time, this chant was being sung constantly for ages, everyone would stop to ooh and aahh at some of the on-field action, then continue with this chant. Also, at the bishops blaize pub afterwards, this chant went on and on for hours!! He is building a rapoore with the united fans of cantona proportions

  16. peter sykes says:

    I like it, at least it gets everyone up and singing.

  17. Richyd says:

    Anderson – son – son – son……… is absolute quality… went on for the whole game yesterday.


  18. KIeron says:

    I think viva ronaldo is absolute quality!!! The “he plays…” song is good but this is much better!!!!!

    Roll on moscow!!!!!!!!
