what is it with the english fans? why do they always sing god save the queen over and over again? i'm sure most of them wouldn't even piss on her if she was on fire. and its not as if they're short of a few chants. explain!!!

Because its our national anthem, and for many its very emotional, patriotic and uplifting and Im sure if the queen was on fire the would be plenty of people wanting to put it out

I have always felt Jerusalem is the song for us to have as a National anthem.

I like some of the Latin American ones...Big orchestral jobs where the words never seem to suit the tune.

 

Or they drag on for an hour & suddenly it burst's in to a volley of non matching words & shouting ( Im figuring thats when the tin pot regimes in charge of many of these latin American nations start pointing the rifles) via the proud citizens singing.

 

I loves the scene Where all the players & fan's in stadium singing look like there str8 out of a Sergio Leone Spahgetti western. ( That would be Terence Hill & Bud Spencer flicks for the younger)........ :D:D:D

British national anthem is a depressing dirge in my opinion. Also a bit much to ask the Scots to sing a song which includes the verse...

 

Lord grant that Marshal Wade

May by thy mighty aid

Victory bring.

May he sedition hush,

And like a torrent rush,

Rebellious Scots to crush.

God save the Queen!

 

England should, without a doubt, have a new anthem God save the queen should be dumped for all time. Have a competition to write a new one...my money would be on Billy Bragg to come up with something...or Take That :unsure: .
