So there’s no official England World Cup song for this tournament. Rather than leave well alone there are concerted efforts in the media to get one adopted.

Those who should know better include BBC Radio 5 Live offering a forum to anyone who thinks they can ‘do better than World in Motion and Three Lions‘. Current favourite is You Bet by Mug and the Punters but you can judge for yourself at their website. IMHO truly appalling – right down to the ‘nasty case of the shorts’ line. If we can’t do better than that we deserve Skinner and the other bloke.

My recommendation, after looking at a few archive pictures of England’s travelling fans – Born Slippy by Underworld. It would go great with the montage of England losing in the Quarter Finals and knock the spots off Lynam spouting Kipling.
