What is ITFCs obsession with ‘Sweet Caroline’ ? 13:22 - Oct 13 with 3272 viewsTRUE_BLUE123

Random question, I know, and it’s not really a big deal.

But we seem to play the song a lot, before kick off and after the game if we win. When did this start? I definitely don’t remember us doing it a few years ago?

Poll: Will Paul Lambert be Ipswich Town manager on the final day of this season ?

I hate it as well, but as you say hard not to get dragged in when we win.

Just seems bizzare as it’s so generic, would much rather a loud rendition of Edward Ebeneezer after a win

For some reason it’s popular at all sort of events at the moment. Not a favourite of mine. It’s one of those tunes that when you hear it, you’re singing it your head for hours afterwards.

Goal music, pre-match and post match.

I don’t think the true results were used haha.

Sweet Caroline is played pre-match but before the pre-match one that was voted for, Hey Jude.

Then played at FT after a win aswell, like RIG said some people don’t like It but can’t help joining in ha.

It’s a no from me too. Not particularly a fan of the song, it’s unoriginal and has nowt to do with us.

We jumped on the bandwagon relatively early after the 2018 World Cup I think - we just didn't win often enough to notice, but well and truly gone for it it this season.

I hate it too - nothing to do with ITFC.

And as for Foz, nice guy I'm sure - but he's awful compared to Rob Chandler.

It has been adopted by a lot of sports in recent years, it originated in the US.

https://www.expressandstar.com/sport/uk-sports/2021/07/08/where-it-began--the-or

Northern Ireland fans have sung it for quite a while, long before it was adopted by England. It also features at the cricket, as well as other sports, its a proper rabble rouser.

Sitters, when they bang out singing the blues pre match(cringe)have they changed the words from "when Norwich lose" to "when others lose"?
