Ive often highlighted to people, bluenoses and of course Tarriers, that throughout the 70s, perhaps before, A 'Hun' was used not to describe a Rangers fan but a Celtic fan, Most of the scum dispute this of course.

However, while having a flick through an old paperback book which was very popular in its day, I spotted this....

They are never original.

Calling their rivals "huns" - nicked from us.
Singing YNWA - nicked from Liverpool.
It's a Grand Old Team - nicked from Everton.
The idea of forming a football club - nicked from Hibs.

Why don't we come up with a derogatory term that we can all use to annoy them. I think "BHEAST" is the way forward. If we all kept using it it would soon catch on.

Good idea. and they can't claim it is sectarian (although the behaviour of the Catholic church means that it most definitely is)

Yes, we DID call them huns....but they also called us huns at that time.

"Hun" was a generic insult that could be used against anyone....when we were winning, we'd sing "go home ya huns", as well as other songs containing the word.....but if they were winning, they also sang it.

People are missing the point of how this has developed into a sectarian insult against Protestants over the years, in their haste to point out how "they were the wans that wur originally the huns".

Grew up in the sixties and seventies, went to games in the 60's, 70's, at Ibrox , hampden, the piggery, had a few mates who supported them. Never once did I hear us getting called Huns, or hear them singing it. Dirt O$#@@@ Bast-, and shit like that. never huns.

Thats certainlyn the way I remember it. We weren't the only two teams who used the phrase either. It was common at most matches I went to in the 60's and early 70's.

You can all say "they are the huns" until you are blue in the face, and it won't change a thing.

Protestants are now referred to as "huns". In common language, they have made it a sectarian term for Protestants, and it won't be changing any time soon.

I`m for that, can`t be labelled sectarian.

Nail on head.

It's VERY important that we understand that the word's usage has evolved and is now UNQUESTIONABLY a derogatory sectarian pejorative for a Protestant.

This agitates the board more than any other topic. Why has there been no concerted action to start reclaiming history and start singing it back at them in simplistic Go Home ya Huns or as in Spence's version above?????? I'm sure within a day the press would be on to it and the word would be banned as offensive and the matter laid to rest.

We either grab the initiative on this or continue bleating about it for the next few decades, what's it to be Bears???

It seems that for many it is easier to accept victim status in this matter instead of fighting back. You can dress it up in some philosophical tosh about it being a generic insult moulded into a sectarian tag or you can rise above it and just use the term so freely back at them that its power is diminished. If you don't want to do the latter then you might as well keep quiet as no amount of squealing will change the matter.

The idea of forming a football club - nicked from Hibs.

But, to be fair, they have been original with:
- Having a club founded for purely sectarian reasons
- Covering up a child abuse scandal
- World-class bin-bag displays
- Introducing the world to cordless bungy-jumping (May 1999)
- Going on imaginary end-of-season tours (2008)
- Having supporters who can't spell their own team's name :D
- Being hypocrites in general ("anti-sectarian", yet allow bands to record pro-IRA music videos in their stadium; "open to all", yet boo their own fans who happen to be servicemen; TGFITW - last year never happened!; "sporting integrity", "refs/SFA/Scottish media are against us", etc.)

Chant it back at them and be prepared for us to be called it all the more. The point that it's a sectarian insult against Protestants will be lost. They will have free reign (even freer reign than now, some would say) to indulge in their bigotry. It would be an own goal.

Nope nope nope!!!!!!! A word only has currency when it has shock value, diminish its currency and its gone......eg the use of the word Gay to describe a public figure in the 70's was a career killer, now??? who gives a damn...... The word has been devalued due to public perception changing. I am saying that the argument as to who this word should be aimed at is gone. Hun was a derogatory term when we used it and it is when they use it..... so kill it or act on it but for god sake spare me the mope type hand wringing bleating that goes on about it!!!:roll:

trouble is... when you start shouting "no huns in europe" or the like at the games, all sorts will look round at you like you are mental as they accept the term.

Don't forget we also wore hoops before them

Never original always second best

we typically have decent paying jobs...
we use soap...
we use contraception...
don't automatically expect the world owes us a living...
don't rape kids...
don't support terrorists...



I guess not everything will catch on. ;)

I may be piecing bit of old memories together but I remember my father,after a few drinks, rattling off...

Hail, Hail The Pope's in jail
What the hell do we care
Hope the bastard dies there
Hail Hail The Pope's in jail
What the hell do we care now

That would be around the mid 60's

For it's a grand old team to pay bail for
And it's a grand old team to get the jail for
And if you know the history
It's enough to make your heart go NO SURRENDER.

No pope priest or holy water
No home rule for Ireland
If I had a tommy gun
I'd shoot every fenian hun
Just for walking on the Queens highway.

Was sung for years, lets sing it again !

read a passage from this book in 6th year - in fact, it was that part in the OP

meant I couldn't do my evaluation on the book itself - which I had started reading for it :mad:

been trying to find a copy for ages and had no luck :(

Yes we did sing that and followed on with "for it's a grand old team" etc.
We stopped singing it in the late 60s.
Hard to believe but true.

I remember us singing
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to f--k the huns on new years day.
Remember us singing that regularly in the early 70's

I think Linfield were the first to adopt 'Hail Hail' ( The Blues are here ) strange as it sounds.

They are never original.

Calling their rivals "huns" - nicked from us.
Singing YNWA - nicked from Liverpool.
It's a Grand Old Team - nicked from Everton.
The idea of forming a football club - nicked from Hibs.
Shafting wee boys - all their own work :eek:
