    Please can someone help me?
    I’m having a senior memory moment, that is annoying me way more than it should! :)
    Does the “....ponte roaring..” song end with “Ronnie is THE king”, or “OUR king“?
    Thanks in advance

    Some folk think that football's boring,
    Ronnie Glavin's always scoring,
    Can you hear the Ponty roaring
    Glavin is our King.

    Glavin playing predates me as a fan, I first came early to mid nineties.

    What was the tune for that song?

    It certainly is at the moment, boring that is.

    Another combination:
    People think that footballs boring
    Ronnie Glavins always scoring
    Can you hear the ponte roaring
    Ronnie is our king
    Mind you swear that Aylott’s chip against Brighton in the League Cup was into the Pontey end goal until seeing it again online. Time does tricks.

    This is the version I remember. As an aside I received a fantastic Christmas present this year a framed signed photo with a personal message from the great man himself courtesy of my daughter and son in law, he played with Ronnies son. It’s things like this that make me proud to be a reds fan which isn’t easy these days 8BF16E75-8695-4140-B7D8-5615EE5DB72B.jpeg

    Thanks everyone for replying.
    Although judging by the variances, it seems I’m not the only one whose memory is letting them down! :)
    Ah the joys of old age!

    It's really good to hear when our fans sing this and other old songs now (except it generally means we're playing badly).
