What are your guys' favorite fan traditions? I'm talking things they do at the stadiums, outside of the stadiums, whatever defines a certain fanbase.

My 2 favorites would have to be Celtic's "just cant get enough":


and Man City's Poznan:

I love the "Roar You Lions Roar" interlude....mostly because it brings back memories of being a kid and hearing that song played at games. Love that it's still going.

First of all, that's simply not true given the fickle fan base here. Ask Mason Raymond if he feels like he's never walking alone?

Secondly, look at that Wisconsin clip the OP posted. If that was attempted at Rogers Arena 90% of the people would be yelling at 10% of the people to shut up and sit down.

Only the Kop bothers singing it.

@ Celtic Park it's a full stadium thing. It's visually much more impressive too.

One of my favourite traditions (aside from YNWA, JCGE and the HUDDLE) is the drowning out of the champions league anthem on European nights. From an away fans persepective:

I'll miss the Old Firm for the atmosphere alone.

Our fans need some sort of tradition other than towel power. We're very boring.

Gives me chills everytime I go to Anfield, the emotion in that ground is unbelievable. Best atmosphere by far.

My favourite fan things are football chants, Liverpool fans come up with some cracking stuff, but even the songs back at LFC make me laugh. All banter, but just sounds great hearing a stadium of people singing. Unlike when you go to Rogers Arena and there's more life in a morgue!

Also ScottishCanuck, FYI Anfield sings YNWA as a whole. I've never sat in the KOP but I've sang it in the other 3 stands with everyone else.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I hate the haka. I liked when France walked towards them, challenging them and showing that they were not intimidated by the Maori war dance.
