  1. Red Dave says:

    the wealth of talent behind these songs is amazing, although the first one just edges it for me

  2. Adam says:

    Number 4 gets my vote.

  3. Red-Manc says:

    Last one was the best, but we dont need to involve the dippers in every song we have. I dont mean to rain on your parade but none of these will ever get sung in Old Trafford.

  6. gotta hate tiny tears says:

  11. Gudjohnsen says:

    I didn’t like the first one mainly because in that song Owen is called a cunt.

    My vote goes for number 3.

  14. Dutton1990 says:

    Michael Owen is a red, is a red, is a red.
    Michael Owen is a red, he hates scousers.


  15. MrPlatinum says:

    I like: “At least, he’s not, a tranny…”

  16. gotta hate tiny tears says:

    the 3rd one is the best of the bunch
    4th is slow
    so number 3

  17. George says:

  18. gotta hate tiny tears says:

    this has to be a record for a chant learned by a 3 year old recorded and uploaded and etered as awrite in vote ha ha ha ha

  19. United4eva says:

    I was sure I was gonna go for #3 until I heard #4.#4 for sure!

  20. Mikael says:

    Number three sounds the best to sing so I’ll go with that one!

  21. Tufty says:

    Its no wonder people laugh at our support.

  22. Scott the Red says:

    Tufty – stop being such a miserable cunt all the time. There’s no need to take things so seriously. It’s a bit of a laugh. You should try it!

    These are just silly songs on a football blog – embarrassing is that godawful banner you sanctioned for the world to see on the Stretford End. What was money can’t buy class squashed up effort all about? We were hanging our heads in shame over that one, so pipe down lad.

  23. King Eric says:

    Tufty – Whats with the attitude mate? First putting us all to task on “Judas Heinze” now this. Lighten up.

  24. godpye says:

    #4 is the winner for me

  25. Tufty says:

    The thing is, other clubs supporters view this and think that what is seriously being considered to be sung by Utd fans.
    Its already linked on Liverpool forums.

  26. rdhanson says:


    20th September:

  27. Scott the Red says:

    Tufty – well if you’re really concerned what some sad bastard scouser on a Liverpool forum has to say about us having a laugh, that’s your problem I guess. I couldn’t give a fuck what they have to say, why do you?

    Regardless, after that appalling banner I wouldn’t say you were the best judge of what embarrasses the club. This is just a load of reds having a bit of a laugh and if a scouser wants to take it seriously then good for them – but that banner, I shudder at the thought.

  28. Cavalry says:

    lol @ Tufty. The more the rest of the footie world hates us, the more fun it is to watch our boys kiss the trophy at the end of the season because you know how much it kills them to see us smiling.

  29. Man Utd Mrs says:

    Viva Michael Owen
    Viva Michael Owen
    Brought a Brochure out
    Came to us for nowt
    Viva Michael Owen

  30. Penn0r says:

    First 2 options arent particularly good..our own fans calling our own player a cunt, a bastard etc?..Im sure he’ll score loads when we sing that..

  31. redevil1878 says:

    3 or 4 for me!! other prick supporters shouldnt be on here anyway TUFFY so who gives a fuck what they think? as long as at season end theyr thinking… FUCK! MANCHESTER UNITED HAVE DONE IN A ROW!!!! nout else matters.

  32. steve jones says:

    They are all bad, agree with other comments, no need to include the scouse.

  33. Teej says:

    “Michael Owen is a red, is a red, is a red.
    Michael Owen is a red, he hates scousers.”

    That’s the best. Good job dutton. As long as we don’t forget to sing it for G Nev aswell.

  34. theboogeyman says:

    What is this banner you’re talking about,Scott?

  35. Scott the Red says:

    The “Form is temporary, class is permanent” one, which was so squashed up you could hardly read it, which has been used on the Kop for years. It was shocking.

  36. King Eric says:

    Scott – Talking of banners mate, I notice that the “United, Kids , Wife In That Order” banner is out in Malaysia. Who does it belong to as it is at EVERY game?

  37. trevor says:

    3rd One… Only one Michale Owen!

  38. trevor says:

    @King Eric!

    I have wondered that too!!

    one thing i love about this forum is that some of it is tounge in cheek! Nothing wrong with a piss take with a serious note!

    Ii think we need a good owen chant, We need to give that lad a little bit of confidence! There is nothing bettter for a Footballer that to hear your name sung by the crowd in a chant!…

    Once that fucker scores he is going to be one hell of a goal machine!! Thats my opnion anyhow and i hope im fucking right!
