Here are 4 songs you are perfectly within your rights to boo at any sporting event

Poor old Manchester City are to be charged because their fans dared to boo the Champions League anthem.

Not that that mega-rich Premier League club will struggle to pay any fine, but it does stick in the craw that UEFA are deigning to preach at anyone over anything at the minute.

Their president Michel Platini is currently banned from all football activity as an investigation into a €1.8million payment he received from Sepp Blatter is carried out, yet they want to punish a club because their fans don't like their corporate theme song?

Do one, UEFA.

Inspired by these revolting Citizens we have compiled our own list of songs that it is perfectly acceptable to boo.

So many sporting events (we're looking at you FAI and IRFU) are completely ruined by deafening 'celebration music' and we think it's time to rise up and show our opposition to this forced fun.

Booooooooo!

The Republic of Ireland have scored a rare international goal at the Aviva, you want to turn and celebrate with your friend, maybe tell them you always knew Jeff Hendrick would come good but no, Fergie is screaming in your ear about how this evening is going to be above average.

Boo!!!!

Drop Kick Murphys - I'm Shipping up to Boston

You're excited as the teams head on to the field at the Aviva for a big home Six Nations match, you want to turn to your friend and tell them how funny it it see Romain Poite running OUT of a tunnel but you can't, because something akin to the Furey Brothers on speed is assaulting your ear drums.

Boo!!!!

Thin Lizzy - The Boys are Back in Town

We've done it, we've beaten Georgia in a vital qualifier for the European Championships and taken a step closer to a play-off. Your friend wants to tell you his theory about how Jonathan Walters' arse can reverse climate change but you can't hear a word the daft bastard is saying because Thin Lizzy's classic has been unimaginatively stuck on the turntable one more time.

Boo!!!!

Paddy Reilly - The Fields of Athenry

You've shelled out hundreds of euros to go see the Boys in Green play at a major tournament and as you recoil further and further from the ghastly sight of them being systematically dismembered by an infinitely superior team someone starts to bellow out this dirge. We know it's popular but think of it this way: How do you feel when English rugby fans start singing Swing Low Sweet Chariot? That's how everyone else feels about our favourite ditty. It's time for something new - can we not interpret something by Samantha Mumba?

Boo!!!!
