Spot on. It's amazing how many fans still sing 'going up TO win the cup' even though it makes no sense. We really do have some of the most twattishly thick pig-ignorant illiterate fans in the whole of Europe.
I may have mentioned this before.

Play on words by the funny one?
We're always fair,we never swear
But now it's hit or bust !!!
THIS is Norman Wisdom's version of GOSBTS,as printed in the programme,and now seen on that marvelous film footage.
Let's all avoid some shoddy misrepresentations of the Great Man's work which keep cropping up across NSC.
All opinions expressed in this post are my own,and are therefore correct.
just a thought - could we get this off the ground for the last 3 home games?

Sussex by the Sea
Was composed by W Ward-Higgs (who lived near Bognor, South Bersted to be precise) in 1910, and the song was adopted as a fast march by the Royal Sussex Regiment and was therefore highly significant during the 1914-1918 war.
You can look on the net for this, there are many entries, and if you cannot find the original words pm me and I will provide, There are the further words adopted By Albion and SCCC and I seem to remember the appropriate web site for the 'going up and we'll win the cup version' is 'matty boy'
PS I e mailed Radio Sussex suggesting they may be able to mastermind a recording of the song, with Horsham Band who I think is the one we hear every match day, together with one of several male voice choirs, with the Albion reproducing the words in programme and on the two giant screen at the Amex. The effect could have proved monumental !!
Sadly I recieved no response from the BBC Radio Sussex

I don't care what you say to me. The whole first season at The Amex, I went to all Gus Poyet's pre match press conferences. I asked the great man what I wanted , when I wanted. It's something money can't buy.
