Top 30 Funniest British Football Chants

British football fans get a bad reputation for being drunken, disorderly and pugnacious. Whilst this is certainly true, they are also undeniably quick-witted and nowhere is this more apparent than on stadium terraces around the UK. By comparison, on the continent football songs are almost always boring, unimaginative and are rarely any better than extensions of their team names - "Allez Les Bleus" is a good example.

Far from the case in Britain, particularly in the Premiership so whilst we're perhaps not always proud of the antics of football fans, we can certainly admire their funny football chants, Here is a list of some the best football songs available:
