Sing Up - for Robbie

Posted on 13 January 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

To the tune of the Robin Hood song.

Robbie Keane, Robbie Keane
Scoring goals again

Robbie Keane, Robbie Keane
Doing it for Glenn

Will he score just one?
Or will he make it two?

Robbie Keane, Robbie Keane, Robbie Keane

or

Robbie Keane, Robbie Keane
King of White Hart Lane
Robbie Keane, Robbie Keane
He's gonna score again

He just cant be stopped
We are going top!

Robbie Keane, Robbie Keane, Robbie Keane


I think it is unbelievably important for our players to hear songs. Very loud and with the whole stadium involved. It would make the Lane the fortress it needs to be for us to march up the table regularly and deservedly.

We should emulate the geordies or the baggies. They sing loud and proud to boost their teams. A united shout of "come on you spurs" is frankly not good enough as a boost to our players when we are down. That is exactly when we should be at our loudest. It lifts our players and intimidates the opposition. How many times have we heard the phrase "the away team have quietened the crowd"? Thats a major boost for the opposition. So come on spurs SING LOUD AND SING PROUD!!!!

Please, please, please print this robin hood chant in the programme until it is a part of the furniture down the lane. It can be changed a bit, just keep the Robbie Keane line and the melody of the song. We need it and it is a sports song sung all around the world with different players in different sports. Robert Key in England's cricket team has it to mention one. Robbie deserves it and I can imagine the crowd singing it in their thousands.

I only wish I could afford on my incapacity benefit to attend myself and shout my lungs out when we are playing. We need to make the effort as fans to inspire the players. Too often it goes quiet and the grumbles can be heard. Well, lets drown them out once and for all.

Cheers
