The following tunes which have a common theme – They all tell a story of a match played by the subject of the song.
That’s a thought – Where are the cheerleaders for the USMNT ? They were there back in 1994… Admittedly they were Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, but they were there. I think it’s probably more because it’s a bit nippy down there is South Africa. However if the Americans win the rights to hold a future World [...]
It’s crunch time. It’s time to sort out the men from the boys. It’s time to stand up and be counted. At times like this you need to know who your friends are. It’s time to go big or go home. It’s do or die. They’ve got to play as a team and win. This [...]
Unlike many in their country the rest of us took notice about this time last year when the USA beat Spain and then were leading at half time against Brazil in the Confederations Cup. On their day they can beat anybody. England are well aware of this and will give them the respect they deserve. [...]
Just getting that in before Five Live claim it. No you are not still high on crack, that is a picture of a couple of birds playing with the balls of the 2010 South Africa World Cup mascot. He is called Zakumi and he is a leopard. So let the hype begin. If you want [...]

Taking a quick break from the footie & movie music series to show some love to Brandon Donovan… …sorry…? He’s what… Landon…? I’ve been calling him Brandon all this time and nobody said. Well no wonder he didn’t respond to my tweat. As you’ve probably seen reported last week (yes yes I am a bit [...]
They actually did it. At one point it looked like they were going home, but somehow they pulled it off. Oh and the USA are in Confederations Cup Final too. Thanks to 3rd Degree for discovering the following… The chap above there is Rivers Cuomo (what a great name). He’s the lead singer of Weezer, [...]
Hello and thank to to Football365.com for the thousands of hits straight after the match. Reflecting on yesterday and cashing in on the sudden attention given to the beating of the Spanish at the hands of the Americans… (no I’m not going to do Gitmo jibe here)… in the soccer kickball tourney currently being played [...]
The old Chelsea song Blue Is The Colour is probably one of the most well known footie/musical songs around. (There’s a note for myself – research and post a list of the top five most famous footballandmusic songs.) There’s been other fans who like singing it about their team, but every time it’s reused it’s [...]
« Now here’s an American footie (soccer) player that you wouldn’t have heard of. Jay DeMerit made it into English football, but not by the usual routes. Jay originally hails from an area in the USA that – sporting wise – is known for it’s (American) football. Green Bay is cheese, is cheeseheads and is [...]
Who’d have thought that a decidedly average defender would eventually be a big cheese in U.S. Soccer. The most famous ginger footballer, outside of the Premiership of course, went from nowhere to playing in the 1994 World Cup. The only player I know who before then had never actually played any professional league football and [...]
February 10th, 1998. The Rose Bowl. Pasadena, California, USA. The CONCACAF Gold Cup Semi-Final. The host country, USA played the then World Cup holders, Brazil. And beat them. Sadly, because at the time there was zero interest by the American media (or the public) there are no reports to be found on the match. But [...]
Clint Dempsey. Footballer and rapp… No wait. Don’t run. He’s actually good.
