Snowflake Royal It's just perspective init. Reading are the greatest team the world has ever seen, to me. Subjectively a d in no way objectively.

Never heard anyone sing Berkshire's in 25 years.


OK, if you've not heard it then it never happened.....
:roll:

Alright sweetheart, keep your knickers on. I didn't say it never happened did I. :roll:

Hard for it to be most peoplr if I've not heard it once in 25 years though.


Like you remember everything you have ever heard in the last 25 years....

Why ?
You seem to be delighting in leaping into the 'pedants' role I highlighted...
You must have had a heavy night, you've woken up in a shocking mood.

Obviously you think it's crucial you're right and it's really getting to you, so fine. Most people sing Berkshire if it really means that much to you, and I've just been oblivious to it whilst constantly in the loudest sections of the ground when at games.

My experience and opinion matters not at all. Yours is better.

From what I recall too, I’ve never heard us sing that song with “Berkshire” replacing “the world” either

Forbury Lion What are the lyrics to "Super Reading FC".... it sounds like "by far the Greatest Team the World has ever seen"..... which can't be right as we're not even the greatest team in the Championship.

We don't specify what it is that we are the greatest at. There must be a niche activity.
moaning?

under the tin It's always been a bit of a bugbear of mine that the we do not have a song synonymous with our club.
Y'know, a song that other clubs' fans would instantly recognise as ours, (and get their back up hearing it).
Think about singing it at the County ground or Kassam....

So many of the other songs are plagiarised from contemporary work, I thought I'd have a stab.
Head above parapet time...…
Bit of George Ezra anyone?

My heart is high when the ball's in the sky
And the skipper he jumps to head i-in

We're the boys from Berk-shire
Roaring on the hooped shirts
Singing at the Mad Stad

We're Readi-ing

Tin hat fitted.

We have Molly Malone, Bill Oddie, Sweet Caroline, Let’s All Do The Chelsea, Terry and June, the Royals Anthem, Five Parkinsons, the Big Bad Wolf, and If You Still Hate Futcher Clap Your Hands, plus we can drone on about 106. No point trying to force a third rate pop song nobody’s actually heard of on top of that.

In all seriousness how many clubs have an identifiable chant that isn’t just them repeating their name or more of a pre-match theme song (like Sweet Caroline, Z Cars, YNWA, Forever Blowing Bubbles)? Man United have a few. Anyone else? I’m sure other clubs have their own Bill Oddie style songs but we just wouldn’t recognise them.

So if you really want us to have a recognisable war chant then double down on what’s there.

Well said.

Personally, I'm looking forward to how confused everyone is going to be about Bill Oddie in 20 - 30 years time.

Er yeah, it's a TV comedian and naturalist from the 80s, 90s and 00s, to the tune of a pop song from the 90s by American star Madonna. No, he didn't have anything to do with Reading. No, nor did she. No it's got no real link or significance. Why? Dunno, seemed like a laugh at the time.
