I was talking about this...

Although I don't get to go to games, so asking about how chants and the like are generated is kind of a genuine question.

Unfortunately so, I've been to a few games, but not enough to really know how these chants come about...

Well, in southern Europe mostly (I think it originated in Italy), there are organized supporter's groups, who stage stuff like that, come up with chants, those things when they hold up pieces of paper and it paints the club's symbol or something. Stuff like that.
For the top clubs they can be thousands strong, and even have rival groups that support the same club.

Our chants originate from witty motherfuckers in a pub. Experiencing matchday's like bein part of an unorganised military faction.

Yeah we don't have meetings where we all learn the songs and dance routines. Pretty much one drunk guy sings the song he just made up on his own and then everyone joins in.

You're either totally wrong, or Europeans just don't get matchday.

"European" typically refers to mainland Europe. We're classed as British, and the Swedes, Danes, etc. are Scandinavian. And, awesome as that video is, that kinda shit is why Europeans don't get matchday. It's not a place to be creative or owt. Matchday is what it is. Football, beer, and mob mentality.

Spurs and Madrid have signed a 'partnership agreement'.
"The partnership agreement will see the two clubs working together in respect of players, coaching, best practices and commercial relationships."

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said: "The strong relationship and affinity between our two clubs has resulted in the cementing of a longer-term partnership and the successful transfer of Luka Modric.

"We are delighted to welcome Luka and look forward to working closely with Tottenham in the coming years."

Levy added: "Luka has been a terrific player for us and, whilst we preferred not to part with him, we are pleased that it is to Real Madrid, a club with which we now look forward to sharing a long and productive partnership."


Translation? They get all our best players now rather than UTD?

On the flipside, your popularity in Spain will increase, which means that you'll be able to buy bootleg merchandise there if you choose it as a holiday location...

It response to that video Vyse posted.

Taking part in something like that at a Millwall game would get you so much grief. You turn up and make noise drowning out the other team. That's pretty much it.
