    They played that as they came out for the 2nd half on Saturday.
    I didn't know how awful it was going to be until I had heard it.

    Never going to happen at St Mary's though.
    Not sure if you realise or not but isn't actually Sinatra's 'My Way' that we play.

    It's a song recorded by the players to the same tune. Agree it's f*cking awful and has to go.

    The original might actually work - much better than current 'we are southampton'

    Agreed. Get rid of it.

    Can you imagine our fans actually doing something like this? Think most have taken the far more cringeworthy and embarrassing 'this is our church' marketing bullshyt way too seriously and taken a vow of silence.

    The best use of an actual song I've seen live at football is what Sampdoria do at the end of a match. It sounds ace in the stadium.

    I've emailed supporterrelations@saintsfc.co.uk

    If a few others do maybe the club will see no one likes this garbage.

    Do some of you ever wonder if maybe you take football just a littler too seriously?

    Worried that away fans are laughing at a song your club plays before a game!? jesus christ

    The notorious Southampton Hooligan Element or 'Scum Army', as they like to be known, have not fought long and hard, (over Land and Sea) building up a reputation of being the nastiest, most dangerous firm in the land, to be let down by this song.

    Teams used to fear coming to St Marys, with this song, they now laugh at us. The removal of this awful song with drastically improve results both on and off the pitch.

    Get something else on, deck the 'Northam ultras' out with dark stone island jackets, flares and balaclava's. The world renowned Chapel Kop will create the atmosphere and suck that ball into the net, like it has in years gone by, and get us back to our former glory.

    Don't give a monkeys what other fans think, just know that it is awful and really hate to hear it being played right before a game starts. It was badly timed when it was introduced for its Trump association, and the rendition in a North American accent (I have a vision of it being Ralph singing) is just downright cringe worthy. There are also no references to Pompey in it. We have a song, we don't need this ****.

    I think the song is awful. ONE STAR. Awful. I could not give a monkey's cuss what anyone else thinks about it.

Everyone who sits around me in Itchen North hate and moan every time it's played. Away fans just laugh at us/it.

    Surely I can't be the only one who hates this cretinous song?
    I agree. Embarrassing. For sanity's sake, whoever selects the music at Saints....
    Bin 'My Way'! It ain't Saints Way, and what's more Uncle Les, we all hate it!

    The original song is French - "Comme d'Habitude" by Claude François. The English lyric is by Paul Anka, who is Canadian. FYI

    Get rid of MY way and play the chorus of The Skids - Saints are Coming, followed by Darude's Sandstorm.

    ................. I foresee another tedious 0 - 0 for that one !

    Yup, the Skids, whose lyrics are.....

    I cried to my daddy on the telephone
    how long now
    Until the clouds unroll and you come home
    the line went
    But the shadows still remain since your descent
    your descent

    The saints are coming, the saints are coming
    I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply

    A drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief
    How long now
    Until a weather change condemns belief
    The stone says
    This paternal guide once had his day
    Once had his day

    ...So just because the chorus mentions the Saints, do you think that there is any other relevance?

    I thought they sang "We hate Pompey" in the chorus?

    Right back to The Dell basics. Queen - Come out to 'One Vision' then when we win leave the field to 'another one bits the dust'.

    No, me neither!

    I think both those lines apply to saints fans on many a match day

    'My Way' wouldn't be so awful if we were actually having a brilliant season.
    But this stop/start mediocrity which we are currently suffering is not the Southampton Way we want.
    'My Way' is smug self-satisfied rubbish. Trash it.

    If people don't like it, vote in the ground and boo it. You'll soon see if it's popular or not.

    yeah that's gonna look good isn't it, a load of ****s booing a song as the players have just run out and start preparing for the game to start !

    If people don't like it tough, I don't like the ****s who can't read the signs on the toilet door/walls that say EXIT ONLY but still bloody go in that way but they ain't gonna stop doing it

    Concentrate on the team not what bloody music they play beforehand !

    So you like the song but have issues with fans not queuing properly for the toilets at a football match?
