Destiny Calling

 

This post was written on 25th April well before it’s publication date of 7th May so not sure how still relevant it is today from a football point of view but nevertheless it is an excuse to post a great wee tune from James.

“Destiny Calling” – James

So we maybe gorgeous
So we maybe famous
Come back when we’re getting old

Cover us in chocolate
Sell us to the neighbours
Frame us on a video

Clone us in a test tube
Sell us to the multitude
Guess that’s the price of fame

She likes the black one
He likes the the posh one
Cute ones are usually gay

Here we come this is our destiny calling
We’re freaks
This is our destiny calling
Unique
This is our destiny calling now

Don’t believe the adverts
Don’t believe the experts
Everyone will sell our souls

Get a little wiser
Get a little humble
Now we know that we don’t know

Tell us when our time’s up
Show us how to die well
Show us how to let it all go

Here we come this is our destiny calling
We’re freaks
This is our destiny calling
Unique
This is our destiny calling now

Some fat cat’s playing the roulette with lives
This game is fixed it’s all a lie
Some fat cat’s playing the roulette with lives
This time is good, there’s no straight lines
Some fat cat’s playing the roulette with lives
Forget myself we’re all entwined
There’s no straight lines

Here we come this our destiny calling
We’re freaks
This is our destiny calling
Unique
This is our destiny calling now

Here we come this our destiny calling
We’re freaks
This is our destiny calling
Unique
This is our destiny calling now

This is our destiny calling
Now

Friday Fun – Gandalf Goes To The World Cup

I know its not fair but I can’t resist some of these jokes which I aim at the English Media rather than the true supporters who have suffered enough.

David Blaine is reportedly furious after England crashed out of the World Cup – his record of doing absolutely nothing in a box for 42 days was broken by Wayne Rooney.

The England team visited an orphanage in Cape Town today. “It’s heartbreaking to see their sad little faces with no hope,” said Jamal, aged six.

I hear Oxo are making a new product. The packaging is white with a red cross and they’re calling it the laughing stock.

What’s the difference between the England team and a tea bag? The tea bag stays in the cup longer.

Fabio Capello was wheeling his shopping trolley across the supermarket car park when he noticed an old lady struggling with her bags of shopping. He stopped and asked, “Can you manage dear?” To which the old lady replied: “No way. You got yourself into this mess. Don’t ask me to sort it out!”

What do you call an Englishman in the knockout stages of the World Cup? A referee.

What does the Englishman do when England wins the World Cup? He switches off the Play Station.

What’s the difference between Wayne Rooney and Shrek? Shrek can save the day.

What’s the difference between a faulty jet engine and Wayne Rooney? The jet engine eventually stops whining

Wednesday Words – The Footba’ Referee

(Matt McGinn)

Chorus:
Why did I ever become a footba’ referee
I coulda been an engineer or a sailor on the sea
Whenever there is a fault to find they always pick on me
Why did I ever become a footba’ referee

I used tae play at center half when I was very young
And sticking out for fair play I never could hold my tongue
The men at the top were watching and they quickly spotted me
They said, Now there is a decent man we’ll make him a referee

Chorus

When first I took my whistle out I did feel very proud
I played it like a fluter and I smiled at all the crowd
I gave them two decisions then I heard a terrible boo
For fifty thousand voices roared, Coconuts to you

When Rangers played the Celtic I was stuck oot on the field
I’d only been there a minute or two when the crowd began to squeal
The half o’ them said, He’s a Fenian wi’ a heart to Ireland
The others said, He’s a bull-nose and he’s had the shake o’ the hand

Chorus

The game had run on half an hour when two began tae fight
I tried tae separate them and tae tell them who was right
They bashed me and they battered me and they left me nearly lame
The crowd all roared, Go bury him and let’s get on wi’ the game

Chorus

They brought me o’er to Italy as a very honoured guest
Between Milan and Roma I did my level best
But the crowd they didnae fancy me I could tell by the way they squealed
They’d to bring a helicopter in to get me aff a’ the field

Chorus

“Back Home” Sooner Rather Than Later

Dawn breaks following another disappointing day for World Cup 2010 though more so for some than others.

I thought that football fans were fickle but the world champions are?

Step forward the English Media!

Fabio Capello led England through a near flawless qualifying campaign.

With the exception of injuries and Theo it is more or less the same squad which is “performing” in South Africa.

He has maintained the same tactics the fans favourite 4-4-2, he banned the WAG’s and kept all the same routines which brought success in qualification.

After two draws, both poor performances, the Manager is now according to the media arrogant, disrespectful to the media, playing the wrong system, playing players out of position blah blah blah.

Little has been said of the multi-millionaire players who now can’t cross, pass, shoot or save but can in Rooney’s case have a pop at unhappy fans who have spent thousands of pounds to support their team.

These are the same millionaires who continue to line their pockets via product TV advertising, even to the extent of Pringles!!!!

Bad as it is they remain one win away from qualifying which is are far as they have any right to expect.

Once again they the media will be forced to swallow their bravado and unrealistic expections and in doing so they will be looking for a head to roll.

There is a saying players win games and managers lose games, what is never in doubt it is the latter who’s head ends up rolling.

Friday Fun – World Cup Sponsors

Mars Bars are being renamed “Believe” to rally England fans for the World Cup.

Bosses hope it will inspire England to emulate Bobby Moore’s 1966 World Cup win with England.

The chocolate bar will change later this month for the first time since it was made in 1920 and will revert to Mars after the tournament ends in July.

Andrea Taylor, of Mars, said: “As the nation’s favourite chocolate bar, Mars is in an ideal position to fuel positivity for the World Cup.” The Believe range will also be sold in Scotland, Wales and Ireland, though with a more general philosophical message – as they failed to make the finals.

Scottish retailers and customers said……………………
