  1. Andi Weimann;

    “When I see you Weimann I go out of my head, I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough.
    All the goals you get for me and all the assists you get, I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough.
    You’ll score a goal as the Holte goes wild and I just can’t seem to get enough of der der der der der der der der der Andi Weimann!”

  2. Very surprised to see this one not listed:

    Gabby Gabby Gabby Gabby Gabby Agbonlahor
    He’s fast as fuck. He’s fast as fuuuuuuuck.

  3. Sad to say I’m not a regular at all anymore but in the glory days of BFR, Brian Little & John Gregory I remember a few favourites:
    Earl Barrett – “Five foot eight, not much weight, Earl Barrett is fucking great”
    The legend that is Shaun Teale – “He’s here, he’s there, he’s every-fucking-where Shaun Teale, Shaun Teale”
    Mark Bosnich – “You put your right glove on, your left glove on, you play for Aston Villa and you’re number one. You do the Aussie Bozzie and you turn around, that’s what it’s all about”
    God – “Yes, we have a friend in Jesus. Yes we have a friend in God. Yes we have a friend in Jesus. And his name is Paul McGrath”
    I’m sure I’ve missed out some good ones but these are a few I remember. I have some great and happy memories including being at Anfield the first time everyone did the ‘Paul McGrath M’Lord’ song with the praying arm actions. That was was back in the day – around ’93 I think! Happy days!!
