Danny Ings Is The King Of The Scummers !
Monday, 23rd Dec 2019 08:49
After his performance at Aston Villa the plaudits are ringing out for Danny Ings from the pundits, but they were ringing out from the stands at Villa Park long before the final whistle as the fans sung his praises,
There were those back in the summer who suggested that Saints should not waste £20 million in completing the signing of Danny Ings after he spent last year on loan at the club, they are probably eating their words today.
But one group of Saints supporters has made it their mission to try and make up songs about the club and it's players that are something different than just copying other sides compositions and changing the names.
The Itchen North has risen this season to become the main source of noise taking over from the Northam End and although the Northam still has more numbers and more volume it lacks a little in orginality and the group in the Itchen North is determined to ramp up the noise and atmosphere in St Mary's and at away games.
Their latest song was composed after the victory against Portsmouth at Fratton Park when Danny Ings scored a brace and it has been getting louder as the weeks go on and at Villa Park it started to be taken up by more than just those who stand in the Itchen.
It's a simple song to sing and a well know tune that has been used before at football, originally being the hymn "Give me joy in my heart"
It goes as follows
Danny Ings is the King of the Scummers
Athough the tune is well known, the words are particular to Saints rather than just one word or two changed and that makes it different.
It was taken up at Villa Park and sung with gusto by the same people on the train on the way home and hopefully will be heard more at St Mary's.
Hopefully this won't be the last new song that comes out this season and hopefully as well it will help crank up the atmosphere at St Mary's as it has done on the road.

Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Swans 3/4/01 by wessex_exile
Good afternoon everyone, North Wilts calling. We’ve all no doubt heard (and used) variations of the expression “strange times we’re going through” during this crisis. They certainly are, and without a doubt the term crisis is apt, with deaths and positive tests seemingly rising almost exponentially at the moment. But we’ll get through this, and when we do, I firmly believe as a society we’ll be better for it. We’ll be a society better connected to our family, friends and neighbours, and more caring for those that need support. More so, we'll be a society in tune with the concept that we don’t have to burn fossil fuels to conduct business, we do have the technology available to avoid it, we’ll all be pretty adept at using it, and will all be far more comfortable with using it. It's an ill wind...
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Macclesfield 4/4/92 by wessex_exile
Good afternoon everyone, I sincerely hope you are all doing well? Today would have been a vital home match against Mansfield, struggling at the wrong end of the league this time after a couple of seasons flattering to deceive at the sharp end. Since the last blog, we now know that all football below the National League is cancelled, and the season expunged from records. A tough break for the likes of Jersey Bulls in the Combined Counties League Division 1, who had won all of their 27 matches and already promoted, but then these are very strange times indeed. I sincerely hope the EFL season can be completed somehow, but I’m increasingly pessimistic about whether it will be.
Matches of Yesteryear - Wycombe v U's 6/3/99 by wessex_exile
Here we are again, so greetings to all you social distancers and self-isolationists, I sincerely hope you are all well. This would have been our third fixture since the suspension of all football in the UK, and with more and more measures being implemented by the government to minimise social gatherings, including extending the football league break until at least the end of April, one wonders whether we’ll ever finish this season? There have been numerous measures announced, including £50m from the EFL, to minimise the financial burden on us smaller clubs, but Robbie Cowling has gone on record stating that “…to really survive and go forward there is going to be help needed from the Premier League or elsewhere” – quite right Robbie.

Tonight would have been our home fixture against table-toppers Crewe, and a chance to avenge the draw at Gresty Rd which really should have been a victory. However, what’s really interesting about it for me is that myself and probably a considerable number of you out there would have been watching it on i-Follow – exactly what our chairman suggested should have been the first option the EFL considered before deciding to postpone league fixtures. Ho hum, wonder how we would have got on…

…and so we enter the start of the coronavirus-enforced football league postponement period for 2019/20. As things stand, we will emerge on 4th April away at Bradford City, with nine fixtures (some teams, including Swindon, Crewe and FGR have ten) still to complete over the following 21 days, though I’m sure the end of the season could be extended if needs be. Whether we do restart on 4th April only time will tell.
