    Celery, Celery,
    If she don't come,
    I'll tickle her bum,
    With a lump of celery.


    Celery, Celery,
    My old mum said
    Tickle her bum
    With a stick of celery.

    Celery, Celery,
    My old mum said
    You can make her come
    With a stick of celery.

    We are the famous CFC,
    And we don't give a fuck,
    whoever you may be,
    'Cos we are the famous CFC.




    And now for today's football scores. In the Champion's League quarterfinals, at Anfield...

    Chelsea 3
    Liverpool 1

    Hi Mercury!

    :wave


    You are my Chelsea, my only Chelsea,
    You make me happy when skies are grey,
    You'll never notice how much I love you,
    Please don't take my Chelsea away.

    Don't you think fan songs are one of the great things about soccer in England?

    They fill the stadiums with passionate noise and tremendous atmosphere.

    Now, Celery isn't exactly You'll Never Walk Alone, and the Shed isn't exactly the Kop, but there's room for all sorts in this crazy world of ours, isn't there?


    Blue is the color
    Football is the game
    We're all together
    And winning is our aim
    So cheer us on through the sun and rain
    'cause Chelsea, Chelsea is our name

    I wish Chelsea had an anthem as good as You'll Never Walk Alone.

    The Kop is one of football's great heritages. It's one of the things that makes English football different and better. The passion the fans bring to the game makes it so much more enjoyable. I sometimes fall asleep watching La Liga and Serie A.

    The songs are almost as much fun as getting blind drunk at the match :lol3

    I was over there in 78-79, and you are right, the songs were fun to listen to. The pub songs were great as well. Not a lot of bars here that break into song on a regular basis.

    What a game :clap

    Not the result I was looking for, obviously, but boy, what an advert for the EPL. I just wonder how it would have turned out had Stevie been playing (and to be fair, John Terry was missing for the blues so I guess it all balances out).

    Congratulations to Chelsea, deserved winners over the 2 legs.

    So close....and yet so far.....

    Yeah, amazing game!

    Liverpool showed a lot of heart, never gave up. Their European "want to" is amazing.

    And what a tremendous series between the clubs. This is the stuff of which legendary rivalries are made.

    Now Chelsea have to figure out how to stop giving up goals. Seven in two games. That's not going to cut it against mighty Barcelona with their incredibly talented threesome of Messi, Henry and Eto'o.

    They'll have to do it without Ashley Cole. And a Petr Cech who hasn't looked right all season. I blame Scolari, who reportedly wouldn't let Cech do his normal videotape preparation for games. If true, it's a completely incomprehensible decision that has clearly affected Cech's confidence. He may not be right gain until next season. I sure hope Bosingwa will be back.

    Anyway, a pretty good brace of games for a "boring" quarterfinal between two domestic clubs. :lol3 Nice job Liverpool, hope you win the League if Chelsea doesn't. Screw Man U. and that diva Ronaldo. :lol3
