We usually like to keep in touch with our readers here and also to contribute with fans in other Man United fans blogs…I noticed a member from Ireland on those blogs called Gotta Hate Tiny Tears(GHTT) who used to end most of his posts with youtube links. Being the inquiring guy that I am, I went to find out what they were about. They were videos featuring the cutest girl you will ever see singing Man United chants.
As we got to know GHTT better, I discovered that the said girl was his daughter Emily. First thing that came to mind, and I told him this, was “finally a responsible parent”! I found it fantactic that someone would take the time to teach their kid, a girl nonetheless, all about Manchester United.
Over the course of time, GHTT’s youtube account filled up with Emily songs praising our great players, welcoming new ones or putting our rivals in their place! In a way, she became the young voice of United fans at the internet. She has sang United chants since the age of 10 (months!) and she is about 3 now. You have to wonder how many she will reach in the next few decades. An example of her work is this Wes Brown chant:
HE’S BIG HE’S BAD HE’S WESLEY BROWN
BADDEST MAN IN THE WHOLE DAMN TOWN
WITH HIS ORANGE HAIR BEWEAR
COME AND HAVE A GO IF YOU DEAR
Some credit has to go to GHTT for the lyrics, but she seems a natural doesn’t she? Emily songs can be what you make them to be. They can cheer you up in (the rare cases) of defeat, or they can make our victories even sweeter.Either way, Emily is one of the reasons why I am very confident about the future generation of United fans.
Recently, she had her very first Old Trafford experiece and I am sure it’s the first of many. I wish her all the best and may she always be so cheerful. We will need voices like her at Old Trafford ;). Good job GHTT!
