Liverpool have started off hot in the summer transfer window and secured the signing of Qatar World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton & Hove Albion. The Reds ensured a frustrating 2022/23 Premier League season and despite a late surge, they couldn’t secure a place in the top-4.
This means that Liverpool will not be playing in the Champions League and instead be participating in the UEFA Europa League next season. Jurgen Klopp appears to be serious about a proper restructuring of his squad, having released four first-team players at the end of the season – including veterans like Roberto Firmino and James Milner.
There is a lot of buzz around the Liverpool fan base around the arrival of a world-class midfielder like Mac Allister. Even though the Argentine doesn’t really like showing off much on the pitch, he is a versatile and innovative individual who has proven himself at the very top of football.
He excelled for Argentina in the Qatar World Cup, even producing an assist in the final against France. Mac Allister also played a major role in guiding Brighton to an amazing top-7 finish in the Premier League and helping the Seagulls qualify for the Europa League for the first time in their history.
The Reds have reportedly pulled off a bargain on signing Mac Allister, who scored 10 goals and provided two assists in the Premier League last season, for just around £35 million last season. Fans can’t believe that they managed to pull off this kind of a deal for the 24-year-old midfielder, who is ideally at the best phase of his career and poised to move into his peak in his first few years at Liverpool.
The Merseyside giants have already shown a lot of faith in this signing, handing him the coveted no.10 shirt – even though Mac Allister isn’t really a natural no.10. This kit was vacated since Sadio Mane’s departure to Bayern Munich last season and this gesture shows that Liverpool trusts Mac Allister to usher in a new era for them and be their next leader in midfield.
Liverpool fans are already coming up with plans on giving the World Cup winner a grand welcome next season and make him feel completely at home in Anfield. It’s almost a tradition for football fans to come up with chants for their favourite players, in a way to celebrate their success and pay respect to them.
One particular fan came up with the idea of allowing ChatGPT to form a new chant for Mac Allister. For those unknowing, ChatGPT is a trending AI software that can come up with answers and solutions to all kinds of queries and questions that are posed by the user.
The special thing about the AI software is that it is highly adaptable to different kinds of topics, especially with how detailed a question posed to them can be. A Liverpool fan decided to test the quality of ChatGPT by asking it: ‘Come up with a song for Liverpool fans to sing about Alexis Mac Allister (to the tune of a 90s dance classic’.
The result has astounded a lot of fans. ChatGPT managed to create a chant in the tune of the song ‘Ecuador’ by the German dance group Sash! The tune is used from this song and some surprisingly brilliant lyrics are added to it.
Here are the lyrics ChatGPT came up with: “Jurgen said, ‘I’ve seen ya winning with Argentina, I need a centre mid too’ so he sent a bid through and how we’ve got Alexis – Alexis majestic! Mac Allister is magic! He’s Red and it’s fantastic!”
If one wasn’t to be told this was created by an AI, they’d definitely believe that a Liverpool fan had created a brand new chant for Mac Allister. The Merseyside Reds’ supporters seem to universally love this irresistible little chant that is almost addictive.
Some are calling it one of the best football chants they’ve heard in recent times, despite the irony that it wasn’t even created by a fan either. This only goes to show that ChatGPT can really create anything you need it to, even football chants!
As a matter of fact, this chant became so popular in a short while that it caught the attention of the Liverpool Twitter admin too. In their unveiling post confirming Mac Allister’s arrival, they used a bit of this chant to tease the fans.
The Mac Allister chant’s popularity keeps on growing to the point that match-going fans also seem to love it. So don’t be surprised if this groovy chant is belted out by the Liverpool fans at Anfield next season, especially if the Argentine midfielder is able to start his career at the club with a bang.
