There is none of that "Come on sing up you wankers" around here business. They are there at every home and away game, turning around, giving it the "come on sing your hearts out for the lads" scowling at those that don't sing. Which is all well and good if I'd ever seen one of them before. You see them going cherry red in the face - to match the replica shirts in their wardrobe.
So without further ado here is the Mudhutter Manifesto on singing. "You do not sing for the sake of it"
That basically means if you want to sing - you sing. If you don't - you don't. Doesn't mean that you care less about the team. And that's it - but if you are going to sing it MUST be one of the following:
To the Team: "WIGAN, WIGAN, WIGAN"
That'll do every so often.
And occasionally “ER WIGAN, NA NA, NA, ER WIGAN…”
To the Coppers: "OLD MACDONALD HAD A FARM, E-I, E-I, O AND ON THAT FARM HE HAD SOME PIGS, E-I, E-I, O WITH A NICK NACK HERE AND A NICK NACK THERE, HERE A NICK, THERE A NICK, EVERYWHERE A NICK-NICK OLD MACDONALD HAD A FARM, E-I, E-I, O"
"HARRY ROBERTS IS OUR FRIEND, IS OUR FRIEND, IS OUR FRIEND, HARRY ROBERTS IS OUR FRIEND, HE KILLS COPPERS"
And of course the LAUREL & HARDY theme tune when they walk passed in the inevitable twos all riot-shielded up!
To the Opposing fans: "YOU'RE GONNA GET YOUR FUCKING HEADS KICKED IN"
"WIGAN AGGRO, WIGAN AGGRO, HELLO WIGAN AGGRO"
"YOU'LL NEVER MAKE THE STATION, YOU'LL NEVER MAKE THE STATION"
" YOU'RE GOING HOME IN A WIGAN AMBULANCE"
When we are pissed: "WHEN I WAS A LAD MI DAD SAID TO ME, WOULD YOU GO AND WATCH WIGAN RUGBY"
And that is about it. Happy Singing (if you insist) folks.
