In '99 Scnthorpe got to the old 3rd division play off final at Wembley, against Leyton Orient. Scunny brought 15k down, myself and my aunt, uncle and cousin included. Before KO, we brought out our MC guy, a Licolnshire version of Paul Coyte basically. He bounced out going "this is our song for the day!" and of course Simply the fooking Best pipes out around the stadium. While I cringe into my seat, my provincial family are belting it out along with the other 14,996 iron fans.
Then the O's send their chap out, who looked a bit like a fatter Tim Lovejoy, who promptly went "here's our song for the day; 'lalalalala, your shit!"
To her eternal credit, my aunt went "that's not a very good song..."
It's the only part of the Anfield atmosphere to be honest. I don't really get the obsession over their so-called atmosphere. They all get up and sing YNWA but then for the rest of the game the atmosphere is just like the atmosphere at 99% of games anywhere in the PL nowadays.
Used to wind me right up when I lived in America - on the NBC coverage whenever Liveprool are playing at home, they interrupt the build up to go live to the stadium for the singing of YNWA almost like it's the national anthem or something. It's pathetic the obsession with them and this "legendary" atmosphere they supposedly have. It's complete bollocks.
