From Simon & Garfunkel in South London to Rock, Paper, Scissors in Germany

The heartbeat of the Crystal Palace fanbase that is ultras group the Holmesdale Fanatics have been at it again. As if the South-Londonisation (or a word to that effect) of Bob Marley and Little Peggy March wasn’t enough, they’ve now gone back to the 60s and adopted top folk duo Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘Mrs Robinson’ for use on the terraces. It’s a memorable little ditty and is surprisingly powerful too. Certain to become a classic anthem at Selhurst Park before doubtless spreading around the rest of the country.

Here’s Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘Mrs Robinson’, followed by the Holmesdale Fanatics’ revamped version and altered lyrics. You even get the bonus of some dancing junior Eagles:

So here’s to you,
The Famous Red n Blue,
Selhurst loves you more than you will know,
Woah woah woah.
We’ll fight for you,
The famous Red n Blue,
The Palace boys are with you when you play,
Hey hey hey!

Coming to a ground near you.


Bayern Munich have sensationally hit 20 (twenty) goals in just seven days. Having beaten relegation-troubled Hoffenheim 7-1 seven days ago, they stormed into the Champions League semi-finals hitting another seven against FC Basel, and finished the week with a measly half dozen versus Hertha Berlin. Mario Gomez got 8 of the 20, with Arjen Robben grabbing 7 of them.

Wining by loads was getting a bit too boring for the Bavarians though, as they decided to spice up their game against Hertha Berlin with a quick game of the classic rock, paper, scissors.

Maybe they’ll be getting the Trivial Pursuit out for their next game at Borussia Monchengladblach.
