With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“And my time is a piece of wax fallin’ on a termite” June 13, 2010


The song says that ‘Football’s coming home’ but after England’s performance yesterday it’s more likely that England will be coming home early. Their performance against the USA was pretty poor overall. Sure we suffered from the keeper Rob Green’s awful fumble (see below), but frankly we really weren’t up to the job. If we get far enough in the competition to play the likes of Italy, Spain, Brazil or Germany and we play like we did yesterday we will be slaughtered!

As for the commentary team, were they watching the same match? They kept saying how well the Gerrard and Lampard partnership was working. Most of the time I didn’t even realise that Lampard was on the pitch. For me he is the epitome of overrated and overpaid. It can only get better against Slovenia and Algeria, can’t it?

This has been a brief post match analysis of yesterdays England game against the USA in the FIFA World Cup 2010. But as I have said so many times before this is a music blog, so here are a few appropriate songs

Fuckin’ Up” – Neil Young with Pearl Jam. Especially for Robert Green

Loser” – Beck. For most of the England team

The Invisible Man” – Queen. Especially for Frank ‘Invisible’ Lampard

Star Spangled Banner” – Jimi Hendrix. For the USA team, well done guys

Things Can Only Get Better” – D Ream. For me because underneath it all I’m an optimist

Could this be what Rob Green saw on the terraces before his famous fumble?
