"YouÃ¢ÂÂre going home in a Buenos Aires ambulance..."
It doesnÃ¢ÂÂt quite have the same ring to it as some of it's English equivalents on the terraces (especially given the woeful healthcare service Ã¢ÂÂ but thatÃ¢ÂÂs another story), but it still isnÃ¢ÂÂt a pleasant sentiment.
Yet Argentinian fans, as you would expect from the home of the tango, wax a more lyrical insult Ã¢ÂÂ my particular favourite being "Tu hermana en tanga," translated as "Your sister in the G-string."
River Plate fans have become a bitter lot in recent years, but the boiling point I predicted a month or so ago appears to be steaming at least, with the head of chairman Jose Maria Aguilar still to fall.
Tickets for the upper-tier were snapped up in seconds...
Now the fans are also turning on the players, with these choice insults heard in recent weeks:
"Que se vayan todos, que no queda uno solo" Ã¢ÂÂ "That everyone goes, and no one is left."
"Se va acabar, esta dictadura de Aguilar" Ã¢ÂÂ "ItÃ¢ÂÂs going to end, this dictatorship of Aguilar."
However, the one that is really sending the shivers through the River changing rooms is:
"Jugadores, si los vemos en un boliche, los mandamos al hospital" - "Players, if we see you in a nightclub, we are going to send you to hospital."
Empty threats? Well, considering members of RiverÃ¢ÂÂs violent barra brava have been killed in the past, if I were a player IÃ¢ÂÂd be spending more nights at home.
And why the vitriol? River are currently seventh, and sinking quickly. They are already out of the Copa Libertadores Ã¢ÂÂ the most important competition in South America Ã¢ÂÂ after crashing out in the first round, winning only one game.
They then they lost 4-0 to Huracan last weekend.
Huracan! I am now a Huracan supporter. They have always fitted in neatly with my other team, Scunthorpe, in terms of division yo-yoing. So to beat River 4-0... wow.
Huracan celebrate humping River
It was the shock of the weekend, even in a particularly high scoring couple of days.
