#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…!

#FakeNews #ENG #WorldCup2018 Donald Trump Endorses CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN by The Laddz

June 28, 2018

Photo By: Steven Ferdman/Everett CollectionIn an amazing turn of events, Mr. President Donald Eugene Mary Washington Trump has flexed his executive powers at long last and declared that ALL Americans MUST henceforth refer to the ‘beautiful game’ as FOOTBALL, or The Beautiful Game (which most of them won’t be able to pronounce!) rather than soccer, AND even more amazingly has endorsed CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN by the UK band The Laddz as his official unofficial World Cup Song for England…! All disclosed using sign language at a private conference in a lavatory in the White House where only he attended.

How do we know this? Our intrepid ‘journalist on the spot’ for #FakeNews dot com, Italian Papa Razzi – not to be confused with Papa John’s Pizza – cleverly disguised himself as a turd and hid in one of the latrines for four days hoping for a scoop. And what a scoop he got!

Not only that, but it is also alleged – we can’t be certain as the recording was a bit muffled due to flatulence – however Papa Razzi clearly heard that if Brussels Belgium win on Thursday, Nukes could be involved (but only in a tactical, strike-first-ask-questions-later manner)

You heard the FAKE NEWS here first, and remember…

CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN

 

World Cup: England v Germany

June 27, 2010

A much-anticipated ‘vengence’ match between arch rivals England and Germany scheduled later today. A young, tight German squad, eager to kick butt… a seasoned England team, slowly starting to play the sport of our homeland like it should be played.

Who will win today’s match?

Both teams are fairly well matched, with our Lads having a slight advantage. Let’s not bring up the fact that the last time the Germans went head to head with us in Africa, there were a few more ‘Panzers’ and their coach, Rommel, got his arse handed to him!

Will our valiant boys play like Spitfires and gun the Jerries down on the lush green grass of South Africa? Hopefully we’ll be promised as eventful a match as the US v Ghana battle yesterday. Mad Ant’s prediction…?

If you get yer “Chant” on early, get down the boozer, play CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN loud and proud, English-stylee, bug yer radio DJ, and blast yer favourite England song from the stereo… Mad Ant says, “2-1” England wins and moves on to the next round.

“Chant Like an English Fan” make it a #1 this summer!

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…!!!

England Fan…?

May 29, 2010

Yeah, we know… and thanks (all 97 of you so far!) for pointing out the obviousness of our “mistake“: why is the song called “Chant Like an ENGLISH Fan” and not Chant like an England fan?

Bloody good question!

Want the answer? Really, want the answer…?

Well, we could come up with a very clever answer to solve the mystery… Did we do it on purpose…? Is it some big marketing gimmick…? Is the secret to the Universe locked inside…? Nah, actually it’s rather long and boring, but to satisfy the curiousity of our fans that asked… all NINETY-SEVEN of you… that rubbed our noses in it, proving once again that you don’t necessarily need to be smart to have a smash hit, we felt we owed an explanation.

When Mad Ant first came up with the concept, the song was headed in a totally differnt direction. We’ll let him explain it in his own words:

I’ve always tinkered with lyrics. When I first came to the US, it bugged me that EVERYBODY kept saying the obvious, “Wow, you’re not from round here, are you Australian?” So, in order to keep my sanity, I made up a song called “Talk Like An Englishman” to the tune of the Bangles’ 80s hit “Walk Like An Egyptian”. It was more along the lines ofa Monty Python-style piss-take of all the jolly foreigners that can’t speaky-da-Engleesh.

“When I shared the idea with Richard (Eyre), we both realized footie season was upon us, and it was time to do a World Cup song for shits and giggles. That was the beginning of “Chant”. I guess, what with all the other stuff going on (putting the band together, learning about the music business, getting in the studio, etc.) and being rather drunk for most of the project – apparently alcohol is a good catalyst for creativity – nobody realized or bothered to mention that we hadn’t changed the English part to England.”

Phew! Well, now you know…
