#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…!

#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…!

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!”

Expat. Brits Attempt New World Record during World Cup 2010

May 27, 2010

*** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ***

London – World Cup 2010 fever is finally in the air. For two weeks at least, the world can forget about BP oil leaks, trouble in Korea and kick back to enjoy some edge-of-the-seat international football. One country – the birthplace of football – always tends to go OTT at this time of year: England. Since there’s no official World Cup Song from the England squad this year, the fans and supporters have released a massive 165 or more ‘unofficial’ Songs to cheer along the national team.

In an effort to stand out from the crowd, one such ‘unofficial’ England World Cup Song contender, “Chant Like an English Fan” by the Laddz, is trying something very different. The independent label behind the track, Bootlace Records, has decided to show the world exactly why the English are unique and can achieve the impossible. With under three weeks until kick off, the team are attempting to have their track played simultaneously at over 1966 pubs and sports venues in the UK and around the world during the half time break of the first England match against America on June 12th. As well as trying to set an ‘unofficial’ World Record with the attempt, they are also raising money for the British Legion.

The idea for the World Record attempt came after Alan Keegan agreed to play their song during half time earlier this year at Old Trafford during the Manchester United v Fulham match, where Man Utd won 4 – 0. “We thought, if ‘Chant’ really is a good omen like that, maybe it can help England bring the Cup back home this year,” said Donnelly. “Just like when we originally came up with the song idea, we thought, ‘How hard can it be to set a new World Record?’”

The expatriated song writing duo (Richard Eyre and Anthony Donnelly) have put a big dent in their target of 1966, and have over 536 different venues already willing to participate in their World Cup World Record stunt. Most of the locations signed up to participate so far are in the US and UK, although they also have pubs taking part in Hong Kong, Brazil, Spain, Australia and Italy. Although they are still a long way from their goal, they are optimistic that they will hit their target come June 12th.

“We’re only just starting to promote the event publicly,” said Eyre. “It’s incredible the help and support we’re getting from other Brits abroad that want to help out.” With no marketing budget and just a lot of hard work, the pair is working day and night via the internet and on the phone contacting as many new venues as possible.

Pubs wishing to participate can contact the Laddz at worldrecord@theladdz.com and the track “Chant Like an English Fan” can be heard on their website www.theladdz.com and will be available on download from itunes on May 31st. “For obvious reasons, we tried to get the Song played during the friendly against Egypt earlier this year, but the FA declined,” Donnelly said, glumly. “But the crowning glory of this whole event would be, if they’d agree to play it during the half time of the actual match in South Africa!”

Although Guinness World Records have declined to formally acknowledge this new World Record attempt, the team is optimistic that the event will be so large and gain so much publicity that it will eventually have to be acknowledged as a new World Record.

About: Bootlace Records is an independent record label co-owned and created by producer, Stephe Meloy, and co-writers Richard Eyre and Anthony Donnelly. They are the inspiration behind the Laddz and their debut World Cup England Song “Chant Like an English Fan”.  For more information, see www.theladdz.com or email them at worldrecord@theladdz.com
