Javier Mascherano And The Seven Nation Army

javier mascherano Javier Mascherano And The Seven Nation ArmyWhen Jack White and Meg White of The White Stripes wrote the song Seven Nation Army, which was released in 2003, little did they know it’d be adopted and twisted and turned into a chant by Liverpool fans in support of their masterful midfielder Javier Mascherano.

If you’re not familiar with the version chanted by the Kop, watch the video below from a recent match against Arsenal. It’s also interesting to watch to get a perspective of how a match looks from the upper tiers of the Kop at Anfield.

    Cool clip. I guess when you’re that far from the field singing is your best source of entertainment :)

    It’s not just Liverpool fans who use that chant. Penn St. uses it non-stop at American football games.

  3. Kartik says:

    Penn State fans must be copy cats because the collective intellectual level of their football fans would not allow them to be creative in any way.

    Italy in Germany World Cup was all over it.

    Sad he couldn’t break the West Ham 11.

  6. LDK says:

    Club Brugge used it in the season 03-04 and the Romanistas took it to Italy after a UEFA Cup game.
