The Sloop John B tune can be heard at most grounds every week these days, but it wasn't always this way. In October 2010, Nani scored a goal against Spurs which left the opposition incredulous. He had fallen over in the box after Kaboul pulled on his shirt with both hands. When Nani was on the floor, he touched the ball with his hand.

With three games left to play they were five points clear at the top of the table. Then Steven Gerrard miscontrolled a simple pass, slipped over and Demba Ba scored. In their next game, they looked to be saving their season, and were 3-0 up against Crystal Palace with 10 minutes left to play.

Carrick Enjoys Hearing Amazing Fans Sing His Song

"Oh, oh, oh, it's Carrick, you know, it's hard to believe it's not Scholes" is the song that was first penned years ago for Michael Carrick. The fact that a lot of fans (rightly) didn't see him on a level with Scholes probably contributed to it not really taking off.

However, this afternoon, in our 2-0 win over QPR, our travelling fans sung the song on repeat in the second half and after leaving the ground.

Years after first being sung in small numbers, Michael Carrick's chant took off in the away end at Loftus Road on the weekend.

Whilst some fans have been criticial of the song, claiming that Carrick isn't fit to lace Scholes' boots, we should probably remember that Vidic isn't actually a murder, we don't often score six goals, and Rooney isn't as good as Pele.
