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!”

World Cup Facts:

April 6, 2010

Did you know… Only seven countries have ever won the World Cup? Rather hard to believe, but it’s true!

Since the first ever World Cup back in 1930 (ahhh, those were the days!) was won by Uruguay (they also won again in 1950), it has only been won by these six other nations:

  • Brazil (5 times)
  • Italy (4 times)
  • Germany (3 times)
  • Argentina (twice)
  • France (once)
  • England (once)

It just goes to show that it’s a funny old game afterall. Can England win again this year, let’s hope so!

Please continue your support and keep the “Chant-effect” going…!

“Chant Like an English Fan” it’s England all the way…!

St. Patrick’s Day Practice for World Cup 2010

March 17, 2010

It’s March 17th – Saint Patrick’s Day – probably the ‘greenest’ day of the year (especially in America!), so green in fact they should use it to bulldoze over the Earth Day scam! Instead, though, we get to enjoy green Guiness and Irish madness for 24 hours.

The “Irish”-Americans go nuts today, with some of the biggest St. Paddy’s Day parades in New York city, Boston, and Chicago. Perhaps less well-known is the fact that it’s also the first official dress rehearsal for England supporters to get their “Chant” on and lubricate their best terrace voices.

Since Ireland didn’t qualify for the World Cup this year, let’s not hold that against them, and show the true English spirit and raise some glasses to our fellow island neighbours and get some serious drinking practice in.

If you feel like partying it up with a quick footie chant or two, remember to give “Chant Like an English Fan” a quick play, so you have something to sing and dance to, and get used to the words. It’s even been suggested, that if you get drunk enough, you might want to start singing:

“Ay-oh whey-oh, ay-oh whey-oh

“Chant like a leprechaun…!”

Chant Like a United Fan…!

March 13, 2010

Some exciting Barclays Premier League action promised tomorrow afternoon with the upcoming match between Manchester United and Fulham at Old Trafford. The Laddz have it on very good authority that Alan Keegan (http://www.alankeegan.co.uk/), the official compere at Old Trafford, will be giving “Chant Like an English Fan” a blast out to all the fans during half-time at the match.

“This is probably one of the greatest pre-birthday gifts I could ever have wished for,” beams Donnelly, co-writer of the song. “I won’t tell you how old I’ll be later this month, but it’s a bit of a milestone. I’m ecstatic at how well ‘Chant’ is being taking onboard by fans and supporters this year, it’s brilliant!”

Unfortunately our meagre marketing budget didn’t stetch far enough for tickets, but we hope at least some of the fans will catch on to the ‘Chantability’ of the track and adapt the chorus to a stand-stomping:

“Ay-oh whey-oh, ay-oh whey-oh… Chant like a United fan… come an’ score a goal, if you think you’re fast enough!”

We’d obviously love to hear some feedback from any die-hard Man Utd fans that are going to the match, to hear how the supporters reacted to the chant. Naturally a HUGE shout-out of thanks goes to Mr Keegan for plugging our track at such a large event.

Thank you very much, and United boys make us proud…!

World Cup 2010 England Song

January 31, 2010

The World Cup 2010 is rapidly upon us…

In time-honoured tradition, the London-based rockband, The Laddz, is rereleasing their 2006 debut track “Chant Like An English Fan” to help rally the England fans and spur the squad onto hopeful success this year.

With more time for preparation, marketing, and early promotion, they are hoping the Obama-strategy of leveraging the online community via Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Myspace, and YouTube, amongst many other mediums will help boost their popularity and record sales.

“We got a lot of recognition back in 2006 for what we accomplished,” states Richard Eyre, co-writer and part of the trio behind the band. “Four years ago we knew practically nothing about the music business, but still got the track produced, promoted, a small feature on Channel Four TV, and radio airplay. We’re going into this World Cup with four years more experience.”

A catchy tune, parodying the Bangles’ track “Walk Like An Egyptian” but with footie-related lyrics and a more upbeat rock sound, readers can listen to the track via their myspace site (http://myspace.com/theladdz) New and old fans can follow the activity via Twitter (@theladdz), friend with then via Facebook, and follow this blog.

At this time, the band is looking for potential street team members to help spread the word locally. They are also looking for local UK clubs that would like to play the track at half-time. Interested parties should email Richard Eyre at goldenorchard@windowslive.com

Rock on England!
