#FakeNews #ENG #WorldCup Boris Johnson To Act As Stunt Double For Trump!

June 29, 2018

Ahead of Mr. President Donald Julian William Horatio Valerie Trump’s official visit to the UK to be endorsed by HRH The Queen on July 13th this year, it has been unofficially confirmed that Sir Mr. Boris Johnson has kindly offered to act as a stunt double in case of a possible assassination attempt on the Mr. President’s life.

As you can see from the photographs below, the resemblance is uncanny apart from their choice in ties, which hopefully will be colour co-ordinated on the day of the Mr. President’s arrival.

In more fake news, it is further alleged that Mr. President Donald has requested – nay, demanded – that ‘Queeny & Co.’ play CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN by The Laddz upon his arrival at ‘THE Buckingham Palace’. It is our sincere hope that he enjoys the sights of London and the Eiffel Tower as he passes Trafalgar Square.

Stay tuned for more Fake News and silliness, and remember:

CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN…!

World Cup: Team USA v Ghana June 26th

June 26, 2010

As the tension mounts in South Africa, an incredible match today between Team USA and Ghana…! If there’s a single fingernail left in the entire United States, I’d be surprised.

In an unexpected half time interview, when questioned about the early Ghanan goal, US keeper, Tim Howard, is alledged to have said, “Well, I saw the F**K-F**K…!!!%#@!!#@ FUUUUUU-%&*$#@@@… and then I F*******K-F-kteeee-F&^%$$#@!!!”

True to form, though, team USA came back to equalize early in the second half. Any American that wasn’t previously a fan of soccer (football, to our European readers!) will undoubtedly be converted forever, if they were lucky enough to have seen today’s match. When it looked like it was headed into a penalty shoot-out, with Team USA holding their own, the second goal from Ghana knocked the plucky US spirit a little. But surely, with Independence Day just around the corner, the same never-say-die attitude Team USA is renowned for kept them going all the way to the final, final whistle.

So, sadly, we say cheerio to our cousins from across the Pond, and hope they will now stand shoulder to shoulder with the England fans and help chant the Laddz to victory against arch rivals Germany in tomorrow’s match…

…Remember, keep the “Chant” alive and continue to CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN…!

England v USA June 12th

June 12, 2010

We’re all still reeling… 1 – 1 final score… I think the Brazilian ref couldn’t wait to stop the painful game!

Am I the only one still feeling sick about Green’s “butterfingers’…?

The game started well, with it looking like all America was going to win was the toss, with England scoring an impressive early goal in the first 4 minutes!!! Then tragedy struck right before half-time… I can’t bear to write about the cock-up that will haunt Green’s career forever (unless England go on to finally win!)

A lack-lustre second half, with neither side really showing much spunk or passion, and obviously a very disappointing final result. For England to have any chance in future matches, especially against stronger and more experienced teams (seriously chaps, America…? It should have been a 2-0 walkover!) we have to start playing like a united force, not a bunch of glory-seekers… a little bit more teamwork and we’ll have some better footie as the weeks go on.

As to our World Record attempt… as disappointing as England’s effort on the pitch today: lack of manpower and ‘technical’ difficulties (including a person that shall remain nameless on our squad, but not Richard and Mad Ant) put a big spanner in the works of the attempt… falling rather short of our 1966 goal, so far, we’ve had reports back from a little under 100 pubs that could actually participate and play the track at half-time.

A BIG thank you to all the pubs that took part around the world. We made a valient attempt… not easy to pull off a new World Record at such short notice and with only a two-man team!

Looking forward to some excellent football over the coming weeks… and may the best team (England!) win…!!!

Alcohol-based Diet

May 21, 2010

Since Mad Ant is still avidly sticking to his vow-of-silence re the last blog entry: https://chantlikeanenglishfan.wordpress.com/2010/05/13/world-cup-song-writer-takes-vow-of-silence/ he’s going a little stir-crazy, but it’s for a good cause, and he did come up with this incredible weight-loss diet based on drinking alcohol:

Mad Ant’s World Cup Alcohol-based Diet

NOTE: (for the sue-happy American readers) It is advisable NOT TO drive or operate heavy machinery whilst attempting this dietry program. Individual result may vary, always consult your physician before trying any dietry program.

Upon waking pour two double shots of your favourite spirit (liquor) and chase them down with either a large glass of wine or two pints of beer. Increase or decrease dosage as desired.

In the afternoon (preferrably before noon) consume at least two pints of beer, and wash down with two or more chasers of your choice. Beer may be substituted for wine, if preferred, and cocktails may also be utilized heavily.

Mid-afternoon (sometime before 5pm) repeat the earlier afternoon regimen.

Evening (any time after 5pm) rapidly consume at least one pint of beer or glass of wine, followed by any combination of cocktail, chaser, another beer, or favourite drink of the alcoholic nature. Continue drinking in a similar fashion until either:

A) you pass out

B) throw up

C) are kicked out of the drinking establishment for either A) or B) or it closes.

It is advisable, in case of option C) that you have a reserve dietry stock of sufficient dietry alcohol at home, and have a taxi cab number in speed dial.

You won’t necessarily lose any weight whilst attempting this diet, but most early test results showed all participants were too pissed to care!

Additionally, nobody likes to diet alone, so try where possible to encourage your other fat friends to join you in support. Failing that, most local pubs and drinking establishments have an anonymous club of clientelle that are secretly down the boozer ‘dieting’.

If your boss calls you to wonder where you are or why your work output has changed, promptly inform him that you are dieting and he should stop his prejudiced and “fattist” comments immediately, otherwise they shall be hearing from your (American) attorney forthwith.

It’s A Funny Old Game…

April 24, 2010

Some funny facts about our song “Chant Like an English Fan” by The Laddz, and some very early predictions…

Liam Sternberg, the writer and composer of the music and lyrics for “Walk Like an Egyptian” upon which “Chant” is based, is a Frenchman. Boo, hiss…!

“Walk Like an Egyptian” was originally performed by the brilliant girl band, The Bangles, who are American… England is playing the US in their first match on June 12th… more booing and hissing…!

The FA refused to play “Chant” at half-time during the friendly England vs Egypt match at Wembley earlier this year… boo, boo, hisssss…!

Now, some early predictions by Mad Ant based on the above… Perhaps some people won’t like our track because of the Egyptian, American, and French associations, but…

England WILL BEAT America 3 – 0 in their June 12th match…

The crowd at Wembley would have loved the song, but England still beat Egypt 4 – 0

If England is plays against France, England will win 2 – 1 after leading 1 – 0 at half-time…

Only time will tell, if Mad Ant is really a football tipster psychic, but the games are only a few weeks away now, and you read it here first…! Hoorah…!!!

REMEMBER: we need all the support we can get for our track, call your local DJ, radio station, or email them, ask for them to play our song, tell your friends, your neighbours, download our ringtone… play it at school, at work, at home… England’s gonna bring the Cup back home this year!!!

Special Picklive Press Event…

April 12, 2010

To date we’ve only ever covered live football matches on Picklive. But with the World Cup just around the corner we’ve been wondering what it might have been like if we’d had Picklive since the start of time.

Would you have picked Sheringham and Shearer in ’96, Platt or Gascoigne in ’90 and of course would Maradonna have collected more than just +20 for his incredible solo goal against England in ’86?

Now you can find out. Between 6pm and 8.30pm on Thursday April 15th, we’re holding an event for press, bloggers and friends of Picklive at our offices in London. We’ll put a classic World Cup game on the big screen and you can play along in a knockout format. If you’re the winner after 90 minutes, you receive a prize for the charity of your choice

If you know your World Cup history and you’d like to attend then please drop us an email.

“I Don’t Believe It!”

April 2, 2010

Just like the response of England fans when a player is fouled and the ref miscalls it, or the ball skims the wrong side of the goal post, our response this week was, “I don’t believe it!”

We want to thank everybody that voted last week for our track – and we were doing great at first by all accounts – which we thought hands-down was way better than what we were up against, but… sadly… their fans got out and voted more…!

Have a listen to the pile of old codswallop that (supposedly) beat our great Chant:

Although it is VERY refreshing that our idea from 2006 to use a catchy and well-known track with different lyrics is being used by many unofficial songs this year, it is disappointing that the talent of our song was beaten by shear better numbers of voters.

We wish God Save Our Team all the very best in the next round… we are beaten, but by far not defeated… In the end, as long as England wins… THAT should be everybody’s goal this year!!!

Glad to see so many contenders out there this year, let’s all have fun, chant it for England, and get ready for some excellent FOOTBALL this year!!!
