    I feel wrong that I cringe when I hear it. It's the country I love and yet the anthem does nothing to stir my national pride

    It's all about passion, nothing a few pints and fire in the belly can't fix.

    I wouldn't mind a few old folk songs to be sung. I have always liked "South Australia" and I'm sure it would get the crowd going. A core group could sing the main part and the rest of the crowd could respond.

    In the tradition of Football just picking a random song - I'm thinking of West Ham and "I'm forever blowing bubbles"

    doesn't help when some bimbo wannabe is hired to butcher the song. do it like the socceroos do for WC qualifiers where there is only the background music and people will actually sing it.

    Dunno about you guys but I think we should adopt some stuff from the schoolboy level. They've been proven time and time again to work in an atmosphere that's loud and hard to start stuff up in (i.e. gps swimming at chandler) and not cringeworthy (these are teenage boys who tend to cringe at anything). Anyway I've got a few favourites from all the schools in QLD:


    Churchie's all you see is blue and grey

    Everyone links arms (see this video )
    Movement left and right - All you see is Blue and Grey (change it to all you see is Green and Gold)
    and replace churchie with Aussie

    I personally think it looks fantastic and I don't go there so that's quite an endorsement

    Then there is 'Here we are'
    BBC normally does this one however a couple of other schools have stolen it - again because it's good.

    A leader says these and the crowd yells it after each line

    Here we are!
    We're at it again!
    We're moving up!
    We're moving in!
    We are the best!
    The very Best!
    The mighty ______ (im think aussies)
    We'll move the rest!
    ( you can cut it at this point or at the end)
    A
    U
    S
    S
    I
    E
    AUSSIE! AUSSIE! AUSSIE!

    Some stuff like this would be great. There are numerous simple ones too, like

    Green White Gold White Green White Gold (repeat).
    Generally the simpler the better except if it is we are red in which case stfu

    oh and here is some more and the general atmosphere at chandler

    *stamping* or *clapping*
    AUSSIE! [or the slightly more bogan "stralia"]
    NA NA NA NAAA NA NA NAA NA NA NAA NA NA!

    I don't think we need anything more than waltzing matilda. The issue is just a practical one. How do you get a stadium to sing waltzing matilda when the game is on the line. I think we need a supporter group to take the lead in the actual game. If 30 people sitting next to each other started singing waltzing matilda in unison then I would put money on people around joining in and it spreading. Also wouldn't hurt to have the lyrics printed for people so everyone can sing (even though they should know them anyway).

    there needs to be a support group in a cirtain section of the stadium like the cave for sydney FC or the barmey army during the ashes, i think the aru really should look into it. Andrew Bogut gives 100 season tickets to 100 nba Golden state warriors fans to be loud and supportive at every home game.

    There were plenty who agreed with you and tried to make that happen, however the ARU thought their method of giving people sponsor pushed jumpsuits and "spirit hoods" was clearly the better option when it came to trying to promote a home ground atmosphere. It should surprise no one that the National Team constantly get out-supported at home these days.

    Spik's guide to Chants:

    Waltzing Matilda
    - Slow, not very rousing. Should be performed post victory only.
    Sing after: 6 beers, 1 vodka red bull. Must be sloppy and preferrably just have been dumped by girlfriend for extra sobbiness.

    That Israel Folau

    He steps off the left
    he steps off the riiiiiight
    he's Israel Folau, he'll make you look shite!

    Singable When: Israel Folau HAT-TRICK
    Singable after: 3 Beers


    Wallabies, wallabies

    in the same style as liverpool, liverpool at Anfield - much more singable than the awkward slow one that people usually try to start at Wallabies games. This chant is upbeat and fast.

    Singable after: 4 beers. It's a bit intense for those of us blessed by being obsessed with cringe worthiness.

    WHO ARE YA


    To be performed sarcastically when we route the All Blacks 50 - 0. The implication is that we are smashing you and have never even heard of you, despite them obviously being the biggest team in world rugby. Highly singable.

    Singable after:2 beers. Nothing like hating on the All Blacks


    Cheerio, cheerio, cheerio

    All time favourite, to be sung when opposition fans are leaving early accompanied by waving goodbye motion. Done by British Lions fans after Final game route.

    Can also be sung with large pack of mates - number 1 on my mates 'most played' at the moment - usually when they are escorted out of a pub etc.

    Sing when: All Black fans are leaving early
    Singable after: Sober, you'll be delirious if this happens
