Snoddy foaming with rage at Bell-end-amy

After the brilliant ‘who needs Cesc Fabregas, we’ve got Robert Snodgrass’ song echoed around Elland Road during our FA Cup exit to Arsenal Wednesday night, it struck me that our favourite Scotsman is more than deserving of his own song.

With that in mind, I called the Leeds United fans on Twitter into action and started a #songforSnoddy campaign to gather suggestions. Now, I can’t claim to the pioneer of this effort, as I’ve since discovered both WACCOE and the Marching On Together forum have also tried to come up with songs worthy of our Scottish maestro.

So, between the efforts on Twitter, the threads on WACCOE and MOT (and I’m sure many other forums besides) we have an abundance of suggestions, some of which are a little too generic and tired – like ‘…only one Robert Snodgrass’ – and others that are quite frankly, dreadful. However, there is the odd little gem in amongst these suggestions that with a concerted effort from fans, could prove to be a terrace favourite for years to come.

Here’s a few of the highlights from Twitter so far;

@cornb33fmckeith“Na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, Snodgrass…” (To the tune of Hey Jude by The Beatles)

@julieannekittSnoddy, Snoddy, Snoddy… Ahh… Ahh… Ahh… Ahh… Ahh” (To the tune of Ruby by The Kaiser Chiefs)

@Steve_Richie – “I’m so excited, we’re Leeds United. Snoddy’s gonna score a goal, and I think I like it…” (To the tune of I’m So Excited by The Pointer Sisters)

There have been many more suggestions besides that you can see on the Twitter hash-tag and forum links above, but I also want to throw the doors open for further suggestions on here. We’ll give you all a few days to sharpen your pencils and blow the creative cobwebs off your brain, then put the suggestions that gather the most support to a vote and try to lead a united effort to get the best song echoing around Elland Road.
