Well it's got 'Let's pretend we've scored a goal' on there, so I might have to go for it ?

For my first and only derby game in the London Road (0-2 loss in our final season at the Manor) it was definitely “sit down if you hate Swindon”.

Pretty sure the game was either paused for a few minutes or there were suggestions of it being paused over the tannoy due to people throwing coins. Think it was also at the time of foot and mouth when there were a few chants of “you’ve got foot and mouth”.

Possibly sung after the slightly awkward moment when they threw half of the away end into the penalty area!!

Match of the Day camera crew almost abandoned ship IIRC? Think it was just a scaffolding tower before the "control" box thing was built in there.

Ah, rember that game well. Oxford 5 Leeds 2. They were 2-0 up just before half time. Lorimer sent off in the second half then it all kicked off...

It's on YouTube if you want to watch the fun...

I don’t think these songs are that far back , I’m a old lad so memories are poor .

Another mean song IMO was “Does your mother know you’re here” to the police officer (mid 1970s?) who looked about 14 and who’d never had a shave. Fair dues he kept coming back!

My favourite (early 1970s):

Bertie Mee said to Bill Shankley
Have you heard of the lads from Highbury, Shanks said no [in faux Shanks accent] I don’t think so but I’ve heard of the Oxford aggro...

Why that should remain in my memory after 50 years, f*ck knows!

COYY!

The look on the Ref's face when stood near the halfway line and Steve Hardwick started talking to him.
