Mad Ant’s England Car – share YOUR pic!

June 27, 2018

FINALLY… more people are starting to deck out their houses and cars with England flags! So we thought we’d share a pic of Mad Ant’s car…

Mad Ant's England Car

He’s not gone overboard this year, although he was going to get the whole car resprayed as an England flag – and might still do, if England win the World Cup! – but he checked the band’s royalty statement and there wasn’t enough dosh for a splosh!

Yes we know it’s a froggy-car (and we take the piss out of him for it!) but what affordable English cars are there out there that won’t break down?

He’ll be driving down to Cornwall from London today, so if you see his car (and it might have some more ‘bling’ on it) give him a honk and a wave!

Let’s get an ANTHEM FOR ENGLAND…!

Keep requesting CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN from your local radio station… Watch the video… and keep sharing and retweeting… COME ON ENGLAND…!

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…!

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…!

World Cup: England v Slovania

June 24, 2010

FINALLY boys…! A win and we stagger into the next round of the World Cup in South Africa. The same week the host nation rolled over to a crap French team… A little, spookily reminiscent of the old days of the British Empire, but let’s not go there! lol At least France is out already, nuff said.

Back to England… after a pretty disappointing start, there are signs that the England squad might actually start playing the game we invented, and play with some THREE LIONS pride. Let’s forget about all the bollox and politically correct bullshit, and get back to what’s really important: kicking the world’s arse and WINNING THE WORLD CUP.

Good chance that our worst nightmare will be repeated, and we’ll be facing Germany in the next round… hmmm… history repeating itself… going to battle against Germany…! lol Let’s f**king kick butt… pull together as a team… play strong, play with PASSION, the fans are chanting and cheering our national team on…

Sunday can’t come soon enough for this Expat footie fanatic.

Remember to keep yer “Chant” alive and “Chant Like an English Fan!”

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…

Remember, you can follow us on Twitter @theladdz, find us on Facebook somewhere, and – possibly – still hear our track on Myspace http://myspace.com/theladdz

Cheers for all the continued support!
