OK. Searched for thread on Zaha chant, but couldn't find one...

This has been mentioned on Holmesdale.net and proved very popular idea, but don't think it made it over here to BBS.

But this seems the most popular idea for Wilf's song, besides the "He's Just Too Good For You" etc ...

KC and the Sunshine Band's THAT'S THE WAY I LIKE IT ..... Apparently, it might have been attempted before, but never caught on.

"That's the way, Zaha Zaha, I like it" ... etc.

Personally, I can imagine a packed Selhurst would sound awesome singing this out?

Thoughts?

We sang it in V block in his first season,but "he''s just too good for you" and na na na are louder and better IMO.

I'm not a fan of the "na na na na" one. I feel the "Wilfried Zaha" bit at the end sounds too rushed.

It should just end with "Za-ha" I reckon.

Don't know what the Na Na Na one is, and probably hard to explain! :D

The "he's just too good for you" chant is OK, but I think it's a bit bland and although we all know it's him we're talking about, it could be applied to anyone.

I think we should def have a song with Zaha's name in it, and that song seems the most natural to make it roll off the tongue ...

His name is Wilfred Zaha, He'll tear you're backs' apart / He just can't get enough, He just can't get enough
He plays in Red an' Blue / He's got Palace in his heart / He just can't get enough, He just can't get enough
Dancing with the ball, He will mesmerise, Cos all Wilf wants, Is to terrorise ya
WILF, tra la la la la; ZA, tra la la la la; HA, tra la la la la... WIL-FRED ZAHA

Chants should be chants. Not re-worded songs. They shouldn't have numerous lines or verses.

Oh, and the thought of thousands people doing the KC and the Sunshine band one is cringe. Sorry.

Another Celtic one! Other teams tried to copy it and it got ridiculous like with Leicester/Blackpool/Brighton etc doing shit versions of We Love You.

Who's decided that? :confused:

Yeah, no Glad All Over to be sung everyone, because it's a song/has lines... What a weird thing to say. Do you just want everyone to sing "red blue army" non stop all game? Reworded songs last longer, cos people get bored of shouting the same thing again and again. Anthemic songs are quality at football.

I think 'He's just too good for you' and 'na, na, na, na...' are enough for Wilf.

We need something really good for Murray, Jedi and KG now.

To the tune of the 'Laughing Policeman'

We once had Andy Johnson
We also had Mark Bright
Attilio Lombardo
And that b*****d Ian Wright
But now we've got a winger
The best we've ever found
And if you want to buy him
He'll cost 20 million pounds

ZAHA HA HA HA HAHA HAHA HAHA HA HA
ZAHA HA HA HA HAHA HAHA HAHA HA HA
We've got Wilf, We've got Wilf We've got Wilf Zaha etc

The only reason I don't like the 'he's just too good for you..' Chant is it was Tarrabts song at QPR I'd rather have something unique.

But KC and the Sunshine band is the one we should sign I don't like his current chant at all.

He's just too good for you - the best of all the options and certainly the most catchy. I've not had it out of my head for at least the last 2 months....

A few years ago I submitted this to a chant laurette competition that was being run, and it got absolutely nowhere.

It was when we punted Akinbiyi out to Stoke City to continue his barren run in front of goals only to pop up on the final day with a strike to relegate Brighton:

There is a football player
Who we thought was a joke
We signed him on for millions
Then loaned him out to Stoke
His name is Akinbiyi
We thought he was a clown
But Palace had the last
Coz he sent the Brighton down

Ahhhaaahahah etc

I think that would be awesome if it caught on; maybe with Zaha just repeated over and over for 3 lines (i.e. lose the 'haha')

You seem to be missing the point. Glad all over is our Anthem and is not reworded. Some reworded songs sound naff. Personally I`d like the Wif song to be `we`re just too good for you`, but the masses will decide what they sing. All the time we keep singing `he`s just too good for you`, others will say we are a 1 man team, adding more pressure on the young man, even though its untrue.
