Perhaps he's gotten more off the ground that I don't know about but from what I can recollect he has given us:
- The O'Neill chant
- Lee Cattermole's song
- Darren Bents very popular song whilst he was here
- Riveros' song, granted it was a copy but lots were singing it. I didn't particularly like it myself but lots did.
- Elmo's chant (very good one, shame the player wasn't)
- Super Kenyne Jones
- Horse with no name (popular at the end of last season)
- James McClean's song (as above)
There's probs more that I don't know about.
No-where in this thread did anyone say this...
It was a reply to Komodo who was mocking "small time" fans for singing certain songs last week.
Dangermows deserves credit (although a lot of those songs are generic and the Kenwyne Jones song is lifted directly from Man United's "Viva Ronaldo"
). To be fair, you'd be hard pushed to find anyone who begrudges him that, or indeed anyone who doesn't want new songs or a better atmosphere.
It's the attitude that some fans are inferior and some are superior because they do/don't sing, sing certain songs, don't sing certain songs that gets peoples backs up though. I'm not saying its on this thread but the likes of you, Dangermows, Komodo and Lauder are all guilty of it - not so much you and Dangermows recently but certainly the last two, remember Komodo's Norwich rant? About a game he couldn't be arsed to go to?
If the goal is to improve the atmosphere then you'd be better trying to encourage people than telling them they're shit. Not you in particular, but in general.
