Mods - Feel free not to approve, got a bit bored and thought I might integrate a few ideas from a few different threads together and hopefully get a bit more a consensus on how we can move forward. Then put it to the club when ready and then get this going:

Hey guys,

So I thought we could start snowballing something together, by proposing how to approach changing the current 5/10min pre-game routine with input from members on this site.

So I've broken it down to two components which are addressed by the polls:
- How to approach the 5/10mins prior to kickoff
- Do we want an anthem/walkout song?
- Which options do you like?

This is how I think it will work:
1. Compile a list of walkout/anthems which we could use and find out wether people are happy with what we have go or want it to change
2. After a couple of months of contributions and a solid list of ideas we put it to a vote
3. Get the list down from 10 to 3-4 best options
4. Ask the club to either decide for us or get them to send out a text to members (similar to how we chose player of the year last year)
5. This way 16,000 members get to chose walkout song

Only thing is that I will keep the first 2-11 posts to put down examples of the song tittle, lyrics and then a youtube clip/s of it being sung/in a stadium

Happy to take suggestions as per tittle, spelling, change poll Q & A's, where it is located or anything to do with this idea really,

Okay Shoot - hopefully 15 options should be enough!

Wanderers Rise Up

Wanderers we follow for life

Our team to behold.

 

Shoulder to shoulder we’ll stand,
Through darkness and cold.

Gonna rise up
Claiming the scalps of our enemies
Gonna rise up
Turning mistakes into goals.

We are the pride of this town,

West Sydney’s our home.

 

Red and black flows through our veins,

From young until old.

 

Gonna rise up

The Champion-ship is our goal

Gonna rise up

This city we’ll claim as our own

 

We are the pride of this town,

West Sydney’s our home.

Red and black flows through our veins,

From young until old.

 

Gonna rise up
Our colours, our team Western Sydney.

Gonna rise up

Our city, our passion, our home.

Chant Name: Glorious
Chant:

 

For all the time we've been

They speak about the west

 

We know the lives we lead

The hearts upon our chest

 

And for West Sydney we

Will stand atop the crest

And sing for you again

 

More glorious than death

Fear of the Red and Black

 

Ooooohhhhhohooohhhhhhohhhh part

 

They said you'll never walk alone

But now you walk in to our home

A place all others rightly fear.

 

We sing together, sing as one

We will not stop until its won

No vic-to-ry for you its clear.

 

Fear of the dark.

Fear of the daaaaarrrrkkk.

The red n black will leave you shivering with fear.

 

Fear of the dark.

Fear of the daaaaarrrrkkk.

This is our home so know that youre not welcome here.

 

repeat..........

Western Sydney to Hallelujah

 

Lyrics:

 

We’ve played the game, we know the score

We’ve never had a team before

That could unite the tribes of Western Sydney

We need a team to call our own

 A football club for football’s home

A team that bears the name of Western Sydney

 

Western Sydney, Western Sydney

Western Sydney, Western Sydney

 

I walked alone at evening’s fall

I heard a drum beat in the mall

And wondered if some dream had come upon me

My spirit soared, I turned my head

Saw an army dressed in black and red

That marched beneath the flag of Western Sydney

 

Western Sydney, Western Sydney

Western Sydney, Western Sydney

 

On match day we all stand as one

And sing aloud the Wanderer’s song

With every game a joyful celebration

Our play is strong and skilled and free

Our heart beat is the RBB

And to you all we make this declaration

 

Western Sydney, Western Sydney

Western Sydney, Western Sydney

Option Nine

 

Rancid - If the kids are united

 

 

For once in my life I've got something to say

I wanna say it now for now is today

A love has been given so why not enjoy

So let's all grab and let's all enjoy

 

If the west are united then we'll never be divided

If the west are united then we'll never be divided

 

Just take a look around you

What do you see

Kids with feelings like you and me

Understand him, he'll understand you

For you are him, and he is you

 

If the west are united then we'll never be divided

If the west are united then we'll never be divided

If the west are united then we'll never be divided

If the west are united then we'll never be divided

 

I don't want to be rejected

I don't want to be denied

Then its not my misfortune

That I've opened up your eyes

Freedom is given

Speak how you feel

 

I have no freedom

How do you feel

They can lie to my face

But not to my heart

If we all stand together

It will just be the start

 

If the west are united then we'll never be divided

If the west are united then we'll never be divided

 

FADE OUT (Rancid version):

 

WANDERERS! WANDERERS! WANDERERS!

WANDERERS! WANDERERS! WANDERERS!

In my opinion, this is a great idea, and I'm all for getting the PA shut down BEFORE the teams walk out!!  It's ridiculous  that the RBB starts up, only to have competition from the stuff blaring over  the PA for a few minutes more.  I'm not sure if the RBB core guys have taken this issue up with the club lately...or whether from within the RBB there is an awareness that this still happens (within their ranks, they prob drown out the PA, but in the stands it's 50/50- annoyingly!.

 

The idea that the membership would decide the possible anthem by means of the proposal here is a fair way of tackling such a monumental task.

 

It's possibly worth trying to find out how the club might view this proposition, as well as what the chant crew would think of this (even though the Club would prob wish to have a say in this, rather than leave something of this nature exclusively to the RBB as is the case with the chants) ???

We already have music. Songs by the RBB; no PA necessary

So you're suggesting just chants by the rbb and skip the idea of a anthem/walkout song?

Possibly some of the these songs don't have to be walk outs but can be used throughout the game

Glorious is already sung. The rest are probably  much more complex than most chants.

Yeah. Really despise the pre-match music-athon. **** music and PA utterly drowning out RBB. I understand its there for the kiddies, but one must note that this is football; we don't need some ten cent PA man telling us to get excited.

Wasn't the Urawa one brought up as one sort of for an easy chant to rest a bit in between bigger chants

Not sure but doesn't seem like an easy chant to follow!! At least if they have a backing on the PA should be easy to sing along too!
