#ENGSWE All Eyes On Our Quarters…!

July 5, 2018

swedesHave you recovered from Tuesday’s game yet? Forget about nail-biting, I have no fingers left…!!! But we made it through and Saturday is only days away for the Quarter Final match with Sweden – the land of the vegetable nobody eats, and cars people don’t brag about in public.

Personally I think we are already through to the hard-earned semis…! Ooer!? When was the last time England had a semi…? I only think about semis when it’s the World Cup…!

Perhaps I should eat more Swedes… uh-o! Now it’s just getting silly innuendo time…!

CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN

#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…!

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: 4-1 England v Germany

June 27, 2010

The Three Lions hang their manes in shame, but not for the lack of support from the fans, and not for the want of VIDEO REFEREES NEEDED…!!!

If that bloody, foreign ref that disallowed a BLATANT equalizing goal from England is still alive, I’m sure his football career as a ref is over, or will be plagued with DEATH THREATS from now until his grave! It was downright disgraceful refereeing (especially when the ref in the Mex v Argentina game just ALLOWED an offside goal from Argentina!)

Certainly, these matches have great entertainment value and will be talked about for weeks to come.

England did well, coming back very strong after half time, but the younger, fitter, German squad capitalized on the ill-gotten 2-1 lead, and our veteran squad just couldn’t pull it together. It was nice to finally see Rooney actually playing football with his team mates this match, but sadly not enough.

ONLY ONE THING good can come of the England v Germany ref BLUNDER and the action from Mexico v Argentina going on right now: FIFA… sort your fucking refs out and get video coverage to stop FUCKING UP…!!!

I can read the headlines in the British papers now…

Cheers for keeping the England “Chant” alive and CHANTING 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…!

New World Record Attempt

May 25, 2010

Everybody knows the Brits are a bit crazy… and World Cup season brings out the best (or worst) in all of us. As if having over 165 ‘unofficial’ football supporters songs for the England squad this year was not crazy enough… Mad Ant and Richard of The Laddz have decided to try and pull off an IMPOSSIBLE new World Record attempt.

It’s SO CRAZY… the folks at Guinness aren’t pitching in (yet!) so we’re having to go it alone… So, we need YOUR HELP…!

WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO DO:

Already we have the support of about 600+ pubs in the UK and abroad (stretching from Australia to Brazil, and Spain to Hong Kong!) but that’s not enough…

We’re trying to have our song “Chant Like an English Fan” simultaneously played at over 1966 (a very good year for English football!) pubs in as many different countries as possible during the half time break of the England vs USA match on June 12th and donate ALL the procedes Bootlace Records makes to the British Legion.

 HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Helping is EASY… we have all the promotional material ready (posters, participation forms, press releases, etc.)… what we need your help in doing is:

  1. Spread the word! Twitter this event, Facebook it, Myspace it… send emails, call your radio station… whatever you can do!
  2. Get your local pub (or wherever you’re watching the England vs US match) to get involved – it’s great publicity for them, as it’s not every day you get to take part in a NEW World Record attempt.
  3. Tell any friends abroad about it, especially if they are British/ English.

All participating pubs/ venues get a FREE copy of our MP3 to play on the day and can use the event in ANY free publicity and promotion they want to do.

For more information, email us directly: ant@theladdz.com or richard@theladdz.com

Thank you so very much in advance for all your help!

World Cup Song Writer Takes Vow-of-silence

May 13, 2010

The World Cup kick-off is just 30 days away now and golly things are getting tense. Will England finally bring the Cup back to the Land of Football? Anthony (“Mad Ant”) Donnelly, co-writer of our song for England, “Chant Like an English Fan” is taking no chances.

In honour of the game and in support of the England team, he’s taken a vow of silence – which started at midnight last night. Spokesperson for Mr Donnelly, Iva Loudvoice, read the following statement on his behalf:

“Thank you all for the wonderful support of our song for England, “Chant Like an English Fan”, you’ve all been wonderful. Every four years the world’s greatest football teams compete for the most coveted prize of all: The World Cup.

“This year is no exception, and England looks in tip-top form to do us all proud. In honour of our national team, I have sworn to take a vow-of-silence until England wins this year. I ask for your continued support and reach out to the girlfriends and wives of all the humble England supporters around the world and beg you to join me in my vow-of-silence so we can all finally enjoy some uninterupted football this time round!”

Well, there you have it… hopefully silence will reign in your household, so you can watch some quality football this year. Failing that, we find that masking tape works wonders too (especially, if applied during sleep!)

Thank you all so much for the continued AWESOME support of our corkin’ toon: Keep the “Chant” alive… and Chant Like an English Fan for the England squad this year!
