As the second match weekend of the Premier League came and went, more people began to take notice of the little things within each game, one of the main things being the chants sung by each set of fans during the match. Now to a room filled with a lot of Americans (many of whom are just beginning to get into football) there are very few chants that are automatically recognizable: Liverpool’s YNWA, Southampton’s “When the Saints Go Marching In”, Stoke City’s “Delilah”, and Tottenham’s “When the Spurs Go Marching In” really being the only ones that everyone knew. This meant that it was time for an impromptu lesson in English Football culture. The lesson began with a couple simple tunes from famous clubs as “Glory Glory Man United” and Chelsea’s “Carefree” were both quickly introduced and picked up on easily. The songs then got a bit more obscure and difficult with the introduction of West Ham United’s “Forever Blowing Bubbles” and Liverpool’s “Fields of Anfield Road”. Again, the reception was positive as the majority of the crowd picked these up with ease. Remember, over in the States there is no such thing as organized chanting and the most complex things ever get is a college’s fight song with most other chants simply being “Let’s Go____” or “Come on _____”. We (the one’s educated in proper chants) then decided to take things up a notch with the introduction of some lower league chants with Millwall’s “No one likes us, We don’t care” and Leeds United’s “Marching on Together”. Finally, just as we were all getting ready to head home and saying our goodbyes for another day, Cardiff City decided they just had to pull the massive upset of Manchester City, leading to a final lesson on and (if I say so myself) a stirring rendition of “Hymns and Arias”, all towards a small group of Citeh fans beside us. This whole NBC experiment is truly working wonders over here in the States, more people are interested than ever in the EPL, and now a select group have taken the initiative to properly educate them on it.
