No, it just goes to prove how much of the singing section you can hear from Block E of the main stand!

Crap song anyway, other than it being a ripoff of a traditional Newcastle song itís too fast and with too many lyrics, people canít understand/keep up when it is sung.
Hate it ..... shit Northern song.

Don't see why the lower has allocated seats ... old farts seating on their hands shouldn't have a seat behind the goal.
It's just a shame the HF have moved away from its natural allies in the AW corner.

In fairness to the HF, they have introduced plenty of stuff that is either original or at least not a direct rip off from another English club. We could quite easily nick Will Griggg's song for Wilf but we don't coz it's northern shite and somebody else's. HF do sing Walking down the Holmesdale but I personally don't join in with the Geordie song and never have done. It doesn't feel right.

To be honest if we’d come up with Wilfrieds on fire....I’d love it. But we didn’t, so I’m glad we don’t sing it and rip off songs from northern monkeys.

I know steeling opposition songs is a massive no no, but we really do need a version of the La Bamba song Championship and European sides chant! Sounds bloody good when everyone gets involved!

Heard Forest, Boro, Atalanta and another Chanpions League club do it in the last fortnight. Think the Geordies or Liverpool had it for Benitez too.

Well the same is happening with these ‘Ultra songs’ they are all copied from
European teams. I saw Iceland vs France in October and was surprised to hear 3 of the chants we did including ‘Mrs Robinson’.

What is better; copying Northerners or the French...

Nowadays the Wilf song would be Roy Orbison's Crying or maybe Old Shep?

Personally if copying, I'd rather it be from leagues we don't play in and against teams we don't play - hence I referred to "English" teams in my post - could have included a couple of Welsh I suppose In fairness, I think nearly all songs are stolen or adapted and that's why the Cabaye song was soooo good! Maybe if we ever get into Europe, we'll have to re-think that strategy!!

It's not been a good morning. Just so tired at moment having to cope with very difficult children. I use the BBS and supporting the club as a get out. When I read the above posts, I find it pretty soul destroying in that there is more to life than who bloody sings Mrs Robinson. Some on here need to realise that supporting this club is a privilege. It is also a way to cope with the pains of every day life. Stop making it so hard to have enjoyment from supporting your team. HF, please note as you are presently divisive.

Great video here from Leicester's main blogger and again quite telling on the clout and visual impact of the Block E section all the way from the away end.

He says: "Palace's support is absolutely unbelievable. Look at that. That is class."

Check it out 09:21. Fair play to all involved

That's great to see the recognition from away fans, what a video.

What's unfortunately becoming increasingly clear is that we, sadly, apart from the HF seem to have one of the worst supports in the whole country. A silent, reserved, bitter, little fanbase who rode the coattails of the ultras and all their efforts. Shame, we used to be so much more

I use to respect the HF. They added something. I now look at them as a spoilt child that causes their family constant pain and stress.
