#ENG – The True GENTLEMEN Footballers

July 12, 2018

13-ChurchillA part of my heart wants to say, “Bomb Croatia!” but that would bring disgrace to the wonderful team Gareth Southgate has put together: the TRUE Gentlemen footballers. They have proven more than any team in this World Cup that it is truly a beautiful game that can be played FAIRLY and HONESTLY (as can be seen by the lack of yellow cards!) It’s just a shame most of the other teams are still quite happy to use dirty tricks and bad play to win their matches (or try!)

I’ve been disgusted by the un-gentlemanly play of many of the teams we’ve (and other teams have) faced and the terrible refereeing – I thought VAR was supposed to stop referee-blindness?!

I can only assume that the Croatian Mafia held the ref’s family captive and the family members of the VAR officials. England more than any other team deserve to be playing France in the final. You may say it’s sour grapes, but if you look at the foul-play of Croatia, they didn’t deserve to get to extra time, and they got away very lightly.

All I can say (and as an Englishman to be backing France is a tough frog leg to swallow!) is I really hope the referee for the final has managed to free his wife and children and has then in the witness protection program, and that the folks in the VAR studio aren’t pissed and blind.

I for one – along with millions of other England Fans – am very happy with how our new squad have played, and will continue chanting my support:

#FakeNews #ENG #WorldCup2018 Donald Trump Endorses CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN by The Laddz

June 28, 2018

in attendance for Donald Trump Town Hall on the NBC Today Show, Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY April 21, 2016. Photo By: Steven Ferdman/Everett CollectionIn an amazing turn of events, Mr. President Donald Eugene Mary Washington Trump has flexed his executive powers at long last and declared that ALL Americans MUST henceforth refer to the ‘beautiful game’ as FOOTBALL, or The Beautiful Game (which most of them won’t be able to pronounce!) rather than soccer, AND even more amazingly has endorsed CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN by the UK band The Laddz as his official unofficial World Cup Song for England…! All disclosed using sign language at a private conference in a lavatory in the White House where only he attended.

How do we know this? Our intrepid ‘journalist on the spot’ for #FakeNews dot com, Italian Papa Razzi – not to be confused with Papa John’s Pizza – cleverly disguised himself as a turd and hid in one of the latrines for four days hoping for a scoop. And what a scoop he got!

Not only that, but it is also alleged – we can’t be certain as the recording was a bit muffled due to flatulence – however Papa Razzi clearly heard that if Brussels Belgium win on Thursday, Nukes could be involved (but only in a tactical, strike-first-ask-questions-later manner)

You heard the FAKE NEWS here first, and remember…

#FIFA – Fuck It’s Football Again!

June 26, 2018

Amazingly… Hard to believe I know… there are some ‘non-England’ fans living in our country!!! WTF?

The-Laddz-Chant-Pissup-Hi

I met one this morning that said, “Fuck, football… AGAIN…!” What a twat! But I did manage a very good 5-second response to the ponse,

“I bet you think FIFA stands for Fuck It’s Football Again!”

Again, what a twat!

#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…!

#WorldCupRussia2018: How Far Can England Go?

June 24, 2018

TheladdzlogoAfter an amazing match between England and Panama – a crushing result of 6 – 1 at full-time, there’s no prizes for guessing what the headlines will be in the UK press. But the real question to ask, with the England squad on fire, is how far can they go this year?

It’s my hope now that we have two back-to-back successes under our belt (and this writer is so hopeful of a hat-trick on Thursday against Belgium he’s rolled over his winnings from today and bet on it!) that the British public will start to more actively get behind our squad.

If ever there was a time to feel nationalistic, forget about all the Brexit nonsense, wave the flag, and take a day off work to watch, it’s the World Cup. Our fine boys are doing us proud – better than most people have obviously expected – the least we can do is get behind them and get ‘Chanting’!

The Laddz are definitely supporting England ALL THE WAY…! Do you think we have a chance? Let us know by posting a comment below.

#WorldCup2018 England 2 Tunisia 1 – Chant it from the rooftops!

June 18, 2018

Well, most people didn’t have their hopes up for the England Squad, but how wrong they were!

CHANT LIKE AN ENGLISH FAN

What a stonking first match for England! They came out with fighting spirit, no nerves in sight. First goal almost within the first ten minutes really set the tune for the match… Sloppy refereeing missed much of the push-and-shove technique from Tunisia (which was ultimately their downfall!)… An unnecessary penalty equalized at half time, BUT… The Lions came back with avengence in the second half, and through pressure and persistence made it a cracking 2:1 finish to England…!!! Great play by Kane… a player to watch as the competition heats up.

The only thing that was missing admidst the fan-tastist chanting from the stands was to hear, “Ay-o whey-o, Chant Like An English Fan… Come An’ Score A Goal If Ye Think Ye Fast Engough!”

If you haven’t heard the song, have a listen via the link below:

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…

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…!!!

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…

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…!
