Steve Bloomers Watching

Recommended Posts

Must admit, I'm amazed (and disappointed!) that our #"Frank Lampard's Barmy Army" (Repeat...) didn't immediately come out as #"Frank Lampard's Derby County" (Repeat).

I'd have put good money on that fast becoming the norm... under the circ's!

Beautiful indeed.

As was the #Chim-Chiminee, Chim-Chimine, Chim-Chim-Cheroo, we 'ate the bas**rds in claret and blue!

Happy days!

Just remembered... there was another verse...

 

#"If they come 'ere, they'll know what they'll get... a fu**in' great axe in the back of their neck"!

 

Sheer poetry!

when did this start as a 'thing'?  Through our glory years I can't recall it and to me it has no emotional link to DCFC.

To be honest, I think what potentially happened was that once Lionel Pickering sold the club we became a run of the mill ‘modern’ club with a fancy new stadium and owners who had no connection to the city. Steve Bloomers Watching in that time came the only bit if heritage that bridged the old with the new. So it continued to blast out of the speakers, be sung at away grounds and came part of Derby County.

So that’s why I think it became a thing, is that in that noughties era there wasn’t much else that linked that ‘modern’ club with its past.

I mean if we did get rid of it... what do we replace it with? Do we bounce? or shall we chant since I was young and get that over the speakers too? 

There does need to be more done for the atmosphere at PP I'm not sure that changing this would be the answer... I just think we need to win more games and reduce the prices for the smaller games vs Hull for example.

Prime example last year we reduced the price to £10 for the Cardiff game and the stadium was near enough full and the atmosphere was electric, we talk about Snowgate etc but we wouldn't have had that atmosphere without playing well and attracting more fans away from Sky to come to the game. 

 

I genuinely think if they started charging £10-£20 for all of the home midweek games we could improve the atmosphere, its too easy for fans to just watch it at home or the pub now... clubs have got to be more competitive to encourage fans to get back into the stands.

Well it's not quite up there with Keats or Shelley but it gets its point across..........

I've heard of 'em, but I'm not familiar with their works, if I'm honest... Have they ever rhymed "get" and "neck"?  I seriously doubt it!  Amateurs!

It's awful. It's the worst thing about the match day experience including going to the toilet at half time.

I'm not a big fan but it's not quite as bad as you describe (unless you enjoy yourself at the toilet some how)

I like SBW, it's the track itself that isn't well suited to 25,000+ fans trying to clap and sing along. 

When it gets going at away matches it sounds good and feels like ours.

I'd only change it for the Dambusters or The Derby Ram but think it'd be a shame... update it maybe and throw some other club legends in?

I love The Derby Ram, the more original grim version especially, but it would be WOEFUL as a pre-game club anthem. It's hard to imagine a song that would sound worse being sung out of time by 25,000 people.

I like SBW and have never seen the major issue with it.

 

When you have West Ham singing about blowing bubbles (dunno where Jacko's pet got too but hope he's enjoying himself!) or Norwich singing OTBC then i think it is actually pretty decent.

Here you are...

 

Our history's full of legends and football played on high. Jamie Ward, Johnny Russell, you should've seen 'em fly. Now we all just love football, but will we lift the crown.

The noise goes up, the Rams comes out, onto the hallowed ground.

Steve Bloomer's watchin', helping the fight.

Guiding our heroes in the black and the white.

All teams who come here, there's nowhere to hide.

Everyone is frightened of that Derby pride.

The Rams just play football that make our hearts so proud.

Jake Buxton and Martin, were names to thrill the crowd.

And if you love or hate us just wait until we score.

The ball goes in, the stands light up and howl the might roar.

Steve Bloomer's watchin', helping the fight.

Guiding our heroes in the black and the white.

All teams who come here, there's nowhere to hide.

Everyone is frightened of that Derby pride.

The Rams are a coming. We're out there to win.

Playing like fury, they won't let them in

. Home sides be wary of our heart and our soul.

We're searching for glory and victory is our goal.

Steve Bloomer's watchin', helping the fight.

Guiding our heroes in the black and the white.

All teams who come here, there's nowhere to hide.

Everyone is frightened of that Derby pride.

DERBY

I'd love Steve Bloomer's Watching more if people could clap to the god damn rhythm properly. About 5 seconds in, everyone starts clapping far too quick so it sounds awful! We don't help ourselves tbh.
