The English Premier League is one of the most alluring sites to watch. It has been around for about 25 years, and one of the most fascinating charm it brings is the roaring and faithful fans in the history of soccer.

Every match, you will hear the crowd screaming and crying chants, and sometimes when a certain player, with a big reputation, comes onto the field,  they will use their wits and sing about them in a positive or negative way. A great example of this is a player that goes by the name of Jores Okore. He was reputable for being injured all the time, but was still a fan favorite for the team, Aston Villa. Jores whenever he played always had the crowd chanting this. “When the ball’s in the box, he’s as strong as an ox, that’s Okore. When you’re sat on the floor but you thought you would score, that’s Okore.” The chant is implying that the defender is a physical player and will knock you to the ground, if your confident enough to dare and test Okore

On May 13, 2012, one of the loudest crowds to ever chant was at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England. Match 30, Queens Park Rangers vs. Manchester City. The Blues, Manchester City, had to win this match to gain the Premier League Title, but they were tied 2-2 in the 90th minute. A player by the name of Sergio Aguero stepped up to the plate, dribbled through everyone in the 18 yard box, and scored in extra time signaled by the referee. The crowd started roaring, like you’ve never seen before. The crowd and all of their supporters knew that one day they would win the league, and even the commentator, Martin Tyler started to get teary eyed. This was one of the most beautiful and emotional days in English Premier League soccer.
