Player chants are sometimes inspired works of art featuring the sort of witty lyrics Noel Coward would be proud of, thought up a fan dedicated enough to spend hours crafting their work before it’s ready to be belted out on the terraces.
Other chants are uninspired and lazy. The famous old staple ‘There’s only one… (insert player name here)’ is the type that would fall into this category.
Very occasionally though, a chant arrives almost fully formed. Funny yet blindingly obvious.
Toby Alderweireld is going to become the beneficiary of such a chant. Listen to Around The World by Daft Punk and you’ll be singing the ever-so-slightly-altered-lyrics, needed to convert it into a tribute to Tottenham’s new centre-half, for the rest of the day. We can’t wait till August.
