    I’m a City fan almost entirely because of the songs. I was taken to Highbury by my father in law and despite losing, from that day forward I’ve never looked back.

    The main reason was the singing. I know away games are always better for that, but maybe we can find a better balance and turn our home games around?

    In order to get more of the crowd going they’d need to be melodic, he lyrics simple and relevant.

    So to start off some ideas I’ve taken the Elbow song Magnificent. I think it fits the needs mentioned and is well known enough, with a visceral emotive feel to it, it might catch on? Play with the lyrics and let’s give it a go!

    “This is where
    This is where the best team play
    Where all the greatest players meet
    With their feet stood on the grass

    And this is where
    The fans come to fill their seats
    Standing with their coats and scarves
    Ready for the game ahead
    Then the ref blows his whistle and it starts

    And there they stand
    De Bruyne, Silva, Sane and Sterling
    The world it doesn’t even know
    How good this team, it can be

    And City are magnificent
    We know
    That City are magnificent”

    Or maybe just keep the end bit :)

    Also posted on the pre-match thread but here you go.....

    The Rags Christmas Derby song...

    "Oh the weather outside is frightful
    But City's football is delightful
    And since they're miles better than us
    Park the bus, Park the bus, Park the bus!"

    Stopped reading at "Elbow" It's a football match not a wake.
