Countdown to World Cup 2010

February 20, 2010

“Football’s coming home…!”

This is an exciting year for FOOTBALL… you can feel the excitement in the air. After a tough year for everybody, with bad economic news, wars, Haiti, etc., isn’t it great to just relax, kick back, and look forward to some really great sports… and a likely England WIN…!

We’re all excited about the way our little song is being received this year… we’re glad people find it fun and catchy. It’s had a little radio play so far and lots of interest on the internet.

Please continue your support of England and our track, “Chant Like An English Fan!” and also please continue to adapt our song to chant and cheer your support for your local teams.

Downloadable ringtone coming soon…

Fan Mail: Chant Ideas…

February 12, 2010

Thanks for all the support for our “unofficial” World Cup 2010 England song. It’s still months away, but we’re excited at the attention our catchy (albeit corny) little Chant is getting.

We thought this was a great idea from a fan who emailed us, we hope it catches on…

Hi Laddz,

I love the song and I’ll be sure to chant it for the World Cup, but in the meantime I hope you don’t mind me changing it a little and chanting it from the stands. You could write lyrics for all the UK clubs! I just shout out:

“Chant like a Vil-la fan… Come an’ score a goal, if ya fink ya fast enough…!”

Mike

Thanks for that idea, Mike. In fact that’s a great thing about our track – you can adapt it to almost any team you support prior to the World Cup. We’d love to hear from any other fans that have started to shout it out at their local games, feel free to change it. Richard prefers:

“Chant like a Man U fan…”

2010 Olympics…

February 9, 2010

Talk about something to put a whopping great big spanner in the works of a beautiful year – the bloody Olympics!

Finally a world cup year comes around and lo and behold… an outdated Greek tradition comes along to spoil things.

Let’s see what you think…

And please remember to keep following us @theladdz on twitter and we need more friends on http://myspace.com/theladdz

Thanks for your continued support!
