Seeing as Mckay's 200th game is coming up in the first game of next season, I was just struck by a moment of "inspiration" especially for the occasion. To the tune of the Proclaimers 500 miles.

Mckay could play 200 games
and Mckay could play 200 more
Just to be the man who played 200 games
For the mighty Brisbane Roar.

And then you can do the call and response bit after the chorus is you are so inclined. Anyway. I'll just leave this here.

One thing though: 200 + 200 = 400

Agreed. Change it to 400 otherwise it will sound like we can't do maths.

I suggested this on twitter, but 17th minute, we all tuck in our shirts and then sing this song?  ;)
Win, lose, draw, We are the Roar.

Feel free to slate/praise/change/ignore ...

We'll sing it one more time for you
We're Brisbane true and true
You're the only team for me
My Brisbane Roar

We'll sing it loud and clear
As you play without any fear
We'll always have your back
My Brisbane Roar

Chorus...
Light Up, Light Up
As if you have a choice
We will stand and sing with one voice
I'll be right beside you no fear

Louder, Louder
Stand up and make some noise
We are proud to be Brisbane boys
And we'll support you where ever you play

Hey, I like this one also.  It's got a great chant vibe about it.  I suppose every second team uses it for that reason but as long as there isn't another A League team using it then two thumbs up from me.

Can I suggest  the use of 100 and 100 for a total of 200.

As a non den person I think you have a reasonable chance of getting the broader crowd behind this one, particularly as part of the chorus is unincumbered by words.   The more drink consumed the better " lar de da dar" would sound.

I also think the song has the Brisbane vibe (could even morph into the dreaded team song) It's a good time song/chant.  I think that is what Brisbane is about, particularly compared to some of the bigger southern clubs.

Well done to the devious gentleman.

The ineptitude of The Den on this issue is matched by the management of the club.
