    There's absolutely points on both sides and I can see both. As others have said it would probably have died out naturally had it been left to do so on its own accord. All they've succeeded in doing is stir a hornets nest.

    I do have concerns over the supporters trust though.

    A hornet’s nest indeed.

    I believe that it’s the reaction of some people that has made it a lot worse.

    The chant, not offended by it, not in favour of it, not bothered by it. It is annoying, irritating and not very nice. But that’s about it.

    There are ways to approach the argument to object, debate and discuss the best way forward but some of the derogatory remarks and senseless responses have been quite shocking.

    'Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings' - Salvador Dali 1904-1989

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    Storm in a D-cup, surely ?

    On important matters, I always add a drop or two of Worcester Sauce to the gravy to give it just a little, but significant, lift. Yum, yum.

    Never tried that but I sometimes add mixed herbs.
    Might pick some Worcester Sauce up today, this thread has inspired me.

    Being an exile in Yorkshire these days I can thoroughly recommend the Hendersons relish others have mentioned. It's a little difficult to pick up outside of the region but if you do come across some then definately pick a bottle up.

    We should have a vote as to where we all like to sprinkle mixed herbs.


    o Roast Tatties

    o Cheese and Bacon Flans

    o Broccoli or Cauliflower Florets



    So... tats, flannies or florets?

    Vote now. Or perhaps pen a song about it, I'll leave it up to you.

    Default To chant or not to chant?

    „Oh Nottingham!“
    „(Oh Nottingham!)“
    „Is full of herbs!“
    „(Is full of herbs!)“
    „Oh Nottingham is full of herbs!“
    „It’s full of Flan, Taytahs, and Forest!“
    „Oh Nottingham is full of herbs!“

    That’d do it.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    In my opinion if professional footballers can drink, drive, crash and still play for their club & country immediatley after then supporters have a lot more to be offended by than a couple of naughty words in a song.

    In all fairness I have no problem with women changing the words to Dicks, six-packs and Forest, if they want. Gay men can also change to these words, gay women can sing the original words and trans (pre or post) can pick and fucking choose one week to the next.

    Inclusive!
    Same, but knowing some of our lot it would take a brave individual to initiate such chants.

    I was at our previous 2 games at Brighton and didn't hear any homophobic chants and the last time we was at Leicester we were far too busy abusing the fat **** with the drum to have time for anyone else.

    When I was a kid and was going to the City Ground with me old man I was just told not to repeat anything when we get home or me mum would kill us both, people need to take responsibility instead of wanting to stop people doing things they might not like.

    The song might not be the nicest thing ever created but it’s sung for a laugh, if your genuinely offended by it maybe you shouldn’t be going the football.

    Hearing someone call the ref a ‘blind cnut’ is perfectly fine but saying Nottingham is full of tits and fanny is out of order ...

    Orally or anally?

    Does he still stay in contact?


    I do hate half a story. Though I suspect I'm in for a Wes PUNCH line shortly.

    And you lot call them snowflakes?!

    She also doesn’t say it offends her, another word used in nearly every post. It annoys her. Slightly different. It’s derogatory I suppose, not offensive.

    I think this has all been stated already in this thread but then the next 100 posts are BANNED, we’re being TOLD what we can sing. You aren’t, calm down, carry on. Some will sing it, some won’t, same as it ever was.
    You're correct, but on every post that is happy and in support of the email they miss out the "challenge those who sing it". A pledge is saying I won't do it , a pledge with a challenge those who do is trying to force your "pledge" on others.

    Had they not put that but in then there wouldn't of been any issues.

    What will be interesting is the shift in the atmosphere dynamic when the main stand closes.
    All the A and B Block crowd will be over on our side of the ground and I’m looking forward to the boost it will give.
    There’ll be some tutting going on then
