Alan Tate loves the chant, but he doubts whether a team of them would actually be any good!
The Swansea City fans regularly chant 'We all dream of a team of Alan Tate's' to the tune of Yellow Submarine by the Beatles, but the former Manchester United defender doubts it would be any good in reality, not going forward anyway!
The chant started because of the player's versatility and the amount of different positions he's played in since joining the club in 2002 - right back, left back, centre back, midfield and even as a goalkeeper.
Not only that, but other than ability, fans love a player who fights for the cause and puts in 100% every game - plus he loves the club.
Tate told the Evening Post:
'I think the fans know that there will be nobody trying harder than I do on the pitch,'
'Yes, I will come up against better players than me at times, but I don't think I'll ever face someone who has got a bigger heart.
'The desire to do well is a big thing for me and I think the fans recognise that.'
'To have the penalty retaken at Plymouth was really disappointing, as was the fact that the second rebound dropped straight back to their player,'
'Anywhere else and we would have cleared it and been celebrating the win we deserved.
'You don't mind the Newcastle equaliser as much, because that came from a good cross and a good header.
'But it's frustrating to have lost four points over the two games, because they would have put us in with a shout of automatic promotion.
'As it is at the moment, we are still scrapping to secure a play-off place.'
