Prepare to cringe! New York City FC issue fans with awful song sheets

Frank Lampard will have to endure these chants next season
Frank Lampard will have to endure these chants next season

New York City is a wonderful place. The very words conjure up images of Billy Joel, Seinfeld and Frank Sinatra. Sporting giants like the Yankees and the Knicks loom large in the public’s consciousness. But what about football? Or, as they so foppishly refer to it over there, soccer?

New York City Football Club is a brand new team and one that will boast Frank Lampard as a player very soon. As the club takes its first tentative steps in the world of sport, it is doing everything in its power to prepare the fans. Apparently this now includes issuing them with song sheets.

The undisputed highlight is the little number entitled, “Some History”:

“You might have some history,

But we don’t give a crud,

Your team will always be a joke until they have a cup,

(Shout the Opposing team’s name)!!!!!”

Then, at the end, an important disclaimer: “Songs not included on this list may still be sung during the game.”


Here's the song sheet below:
