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…!!!

It’s A Funny Old Game…

April 24, 2010

Some funny facts about our song “Chant Like an English Fan” by The Laddz, and some very early predictions…

Liam Sternberg, the writer and composer of the music and lyrics for “Walk Like an Egyptian” upon which “Chant” is based, is a Frenchman. Boo, hiss…!

“Walk Like an Egyptian” was originally performed by the brilliant girl band, The Bangles, who are American… England is playing the US in their first match on June 12th… more booing and hissing…!

The FA refused to play “Chant” at half-time during the friendly England vs Egypt match at Wembley earlier this year… boo, boo, hisssss…!

Now, some early predictions by Mad Ant based on the above… Perhaps some people won’t like our track because of the Egyptian, American, and French associations, but…

England WILL BEAT America¬†3 – 0 in their June 12th match…

The crowd at Wembley would have loved the song, but England still beat Egypt 4 – 0

If England is plays against France, England will win 2 – 1 after leading 1 – 0 at half-time…

Only time will tell, if Mad Ant is really a football tipster psychic, but the games are only a few weeks away now, and you read it here first…! Hoorah…!!!

REMEMBER: we need all the support we can get for our track, call your local DJ, radio station, or email them, ask for them to play our song, tell your friends, your neighbours, download our ringtone… play it at school, at work, at home… England’s gonna bring the Cup back home this year!!!

“I Don’t Believe It!”

April 2, 2010

Just like the response of England fans when a player is fouled and the ref miscalls it, or the ball skims the wrong side of the goal post, our response this week was, “I don’t believe it!”

We want to thank everybody that voted last week for our track – and we were doing great at first by all accounts – which we thought hands-down was way better than what we were up against, but… sadly… their fans got out and voted more…!

Have a listen to the pile of old codswallop that (supposedly) beat our great Chant:

Although it is VERY refreshing that our idea from 2006 to use a catchy and well-known track with different lyrics is being used by many unofficial songs this year, it is disappointing that the talent of our song was beaten by shear better numbers of voters.

We wish God Save Our Team all the very best in the next round… we are beaten, but by far not defeated… In the end, as long as England wins… THAT should be everybody’s goal this year!!!

Glad to see so many contenders out there this year, let’s all have fun, chant it for England, and get ready for some excellent FOOTBALL this year!!!

Let’s see what you think…
