#ItsComingHome Where’s Our World Cup Anthem…?

June 26, 2018

With anticipation rising higher than a tsunami for England’s stonking win against Belgium this Thursday (and we WILL win our group!) more and more people are – finally – getting into the patriotic, sporting spirit and getting behind our national team, but…

Where’s Our World Cup Anthem…?

There are some unofficial songs out there at least, and we’re pitching our old chestnut from back in 2006 out there, just ‘cos we think it’s the most catchy song in the running for the country’s favourite, and it doesn’t get boring! Might even remind you of the Bangles…! hehe

Sing it loud, sing it proud, chant it from the stands for ENGER-LAND…!

CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN…!

#worldcup England 6 – 1 Panama!

June 24, 2018

CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN…!

Tremendous play by the England squad. A blinding first half ending in 5 – 0 to England. I had high hopes for an equally intense second half, but was disappointed by the play of the substitutes who didn’t really perform as strongly as the players they had replaced. Very sloppy giving away the goal to Panama, but they deserved something for sticking with it and not quitting under the pressure of a far superior team.

My prize goes to the referee who was spot on at penalizing the dirty tactics by the opposition – refreshing to actually see a ref that can do his job for once!

High hopes for Thursday’s match against Belgium…

Keep Chanting Like An English Fan!

#WorldCup2018 England 2 Tunisia 1 – Chant it from the rooftops!

June 18, 2018

Well, most people didn’t have their hopes up for the England Squad, but how wrong they were!

CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN

What a stonking first match for England! They came out with fighting spirit, no nerves in sight. First goal almost within the first ten minutes really set the tune for the match… Sloppy refereeing missed much of the push-and-shove technique from Tunisia (which was ultimately their downfall!)… An unnecessary penalty equalized at half time, BUT… The Lions came back with avengence in the second half, and through pressure and persistence made it a cracking 2:1 finish to England…!!! Great play by Kane… a player to watch as the competition heats up.

The only thing that was missing admidst the fan-tastist chanting from the stands was to hear, “Ay-o whey-o, Chant Like An English Fan… Come An’ Score A Goal If Ye Think Ye Fast Engough!”

If you haven’t heard the song, have a listen via the link below:

World Cup SongTomorrow (June 18th) the England squad gets to show their true colours in the world football arena in Russia. Do they have what it takes to prove our nation proud? Is the line-up going to be right? Will they get off to a good start?

IS ANYONE IN ENGLAND BEHIND THE TEAM?

With no ‘official’ song is it any wonder nobody is getting behind the game? Football songs and chants are part of the make up of the game. Over the years the whole ‘unofficial’ song for England was all part of the build-up to the World Cup, but this year… nada! Have the populace given up? Are we sick and tired of being lied to by politicians that promise the earth and deliver nothing? Has this apathy now seeped into sport? Has this lethargy seeped into the beautiful game of football? Do we really feel England has absolutely no hope of getting anywhere in the World Cup, so we’re not even going to bother getting behind the team and the flag and giving it large?

Well, we’re not giving up!

Even though the co-writer of this song, the late Richard Eyre, is now pushing up the daisies on the footie pitch, in HIS honour, we’ve re-released our stonking ‘toon’ to get the England fans in the mood, and you can hear it…

HERE

If ya like it, share it and get it played in the radio. If ya don’t like it, record yer own and get behind the England team.

World Cup: Guide Dogs For FIFA Refs…

July 1, 2010

Don’t Let FIFA Drop The Ball: FACEBOOK FIFA PETITION

In our unwavering effort to make sure FIFA don’t fall asleep (again!) on the issue of bringing their match adjudication into the 21st Century, with better technology to prevent their piss-poor refs’ performance, we’re pressing forward with our FIFA petition to act sooner rather than later on the issue.

Please help show your support to apply grassroots pressure on FIFA to not only discuss the use of Goal Line Technology/ Live Video Review, but set a CONCRETE GOAL to actually have it in use BEFORE the next World Cup in 2014.

As a suggestion, in the meantime, as a cheaper solution for this World Cup in South Africa: issue all your refs with Guide Dogs and white canes, at least that way the fans won’t go so crazy when they don’t SEE an obvious goal or off-side!

Show your support and join us on Facebook, and tell all your friends…!

World Cup: FIFA Needs To Implement Use Of Live Video Review

June 28, 2010

Join our petition here: FACEBOOK FIFA PETITION

WORLD CUP SOUTH AFRICA 2010: If there is anything to be learned from Sunday’s matches (England v Germany, and Argentina v Mexico) and as mentioned heavily by the commentators of both games, FIFA needs to stop just considering using Live Video Review to improve the ref’s decisions on important calls, but needs to just man up and IMPLEMENT technology that’s been used in almost every other sport out there, certainly for important international events like the World Cup!

I don’t think there’s a single English or Mexican fan that would not vote a resounding YES to improving the extremely poor refereeing abilities. If anybody else turned up to work and ‘fucked up’ like the refs in both of Sunday’s matches (and in others so far in this World Cup!) they would have been sacked. Imagine a doctor giving a wrong diagnosis, for example – the hospital would have been sued…!!!

FIFA, sort your act out. NOW!

It doesn’t have to be used in amateur games, league games, or anywhere else, but surely for INTERNATIONAL (and European) matches, it should not even come into question. If it’s a matter of cost, add a couple of quid to the tickets!

THE LADDZ, are keeping the “CHANT” Alive and starting a Facebook campaign to petition FIFA to get off their fat lardies and SORT IT OUT…!
