We need to come to some sort of a decision on this, some people do three, and some only do two before carrying on "Hibernian FC.... from the capital". It always leaves me so confused as to what part we're at :boo hoo:

I think that OP was referring to the number of times you sing 'Allez Allez...' before progressing onto 'Hibernian FC...' and the answer is most certainly 2

Not Clear, I voted three.

But if the OP wanted to know when Hibernian FC comes in its two.

We've really lost the rhythm of this recently. The "Allez"s have been more like "Alley"s.

This. now it sounds like ally ally ally ally oh, putting four in and also instead of 3 "allez" like it was when it first started...now it's getting sung so quick it's getting a bit distorted, it's not ally ally....:greengrin:rolleyes:

It's not the number of times that some folk get mixed up with... it's that "allez" should sound like "allay" (allay your fears) rather than "alley" (what's Rix doing in that alley?)

Maybe I'm wrong but I think it has been progressively been sung more incorrectly as the season goes on. Seems the 'allezs' are too quick and pronounced wrong as said above. I'm very rhythmical so it bugs me big time. :greengrin

14-05-2013, 08:32 PM
This is the best song weve had in a while, shame everybody gets it wrong, not all that hard really. 3 Allez's then au. And its in french so its not "ally" its a-lay a-lay. The second allez is longer as well, people just mong out a few allys to no particular melody and then join in on the HFC FTC bit. There was a drummer in the lower section at tynie also who seemed like he was pished, couldnt keep the beat for *****. Might also post the proper melody on youtube just to keep people right, it can be an awesome one if done right

14-05-2013, 08:44 PM
Voted 'three' because I assumed you meant the number of 'allez's before each 'au', but if you meant the number of times that 'allez allez allez au' is repeated before 'Hibernian F.C.'... then obviously two.

Pronunciation: it's all about emphasis - ah-LEZ ah-LEEEZ AH-lez au

And as above, don't sing it too fast either.

Arguing about the intricacies of football chant pronunciation - I love it! :nerd:

Just sinking a couple of beers with Sauzee and Zitelli at the moment, and they're both complaining that - if we're going to get the French right - it should be "Allez a l'" (with a grave over the "a", of course). I've told them that that just wouldn't scan at all. Tense moments at my bit, I'll tell ya.

If you're looking at how many 'Allez's' there are in each one there are three.
But, if your looking at how many times Allez Allez Allez Au is repeated, then it is two...

I don't understand why there's a vote.

It is 3 'allez's.

pronounced 'al-ay al-ay al-ay auuuuu' and to the beat, not like you're bursting in a queue for the toilets.

alyalyalyoooooooooooalyalyalyoooooalyalyooooooalya lyoooo :confused:

I didn't notice people were also using one less 'allez' until the Falkirk game when it was very noticeable.
It's just on of those little irks, I suppose. I bet the Sect43 drummer gets a bit confused when there's allsorts of versions at the same time.

Agreed,

also we need the drummer to keep everyone in time, or perhaps we should have a drummer per stand synchronised and co-ordinated by a conductor projected onto a giant screen in the corner....... ahem.....what was the question?

My mistake OP!

I think others have made the same mistake and misread. I thought you were talking about how many words in each line and not how many lines before 'Hibernian F.C. ..'

:embarrass

The answer in that case would be 2 - which I also don't understand why there'd need to be a poll!
It always has been 2, perhaps the crazy allyallyoos have made it 3 from people picking up the song incorrectly!
Is it that difficult?

Was listening to the Frankfurt vid.

The drummer might be the key. He's trying to to the 1- -1-2-3,
1 - 1-2-3, that works as the Frankfurt lads have it spot on and can do their a-lays.

Maybe keep it a simple 1-2, 1-2 that way we can slow down the singing and stretch out the a-lays.

I am sure I'm not making sense but in essence slow the beat down by striking the drum on the first 1 and the 3 only.

I think to assist this Allez should be detailed as Allay (not Alley). However, I congratulate on the appropriate shortened and extended emphasis above as this is perfect.

Voted wrong as i misunderstood, its two rounds of Allez... then HFC FTC. The more pressing matter is the disintegration of the melody and the misappropriation of the syllables, the 3 or 4 people as concerned as i am should spearhead a campaign ahead of the final. :thumbsup:
