…and a glass of white wine for the ladies

Sticking with some current artists and tunes for this latest addition to the Jukebox. You may have heard about and you’ve definitely seen photo’s of the WAGs. WAGs : Wives and girlfriends of footballers. These WAGs are usually like the archetypal trophy wife. All surface but no feeling. Like one of those cars the boy racers have, attractive to look at but rough as old bollocks underneath. There are a couple of exceptions, some of them have their own careers and income, such as ÜberWAG Skeletor (Vicky Beckham). But most are happy to just shop and travel to places to…

[Subs Bench] Dry Your Eyes Becks

It seems that Derek has forgotten about his blog even though he’s got plenty of time on his hands right now. Time he is going to spend, according to entertainment/gossip websites, wearing tight underpants so he can get it on with Skeletor and conceive a girl. (Do we really need that much information ?) Until Derek remembers that he has a blog and gets one of his assistants to make something up to post; some related stuff we’ve found: Gift Grub is a comedy sketch thing originating from Irish radio station Today FM. Usually Gift Grub’s skits are in the…

And now the chorus… Leeds United

Possibly one of the weirdest songs with a tenious… well more than tenious, the track mentions the team and about supporting them BUT it isn’t specifically about Leeds United the football club. Luke Haines sings about supporting them in the 70’s, but more about what it was like in the 1970’s up there watching Kendo Nagasaki on the wrestling, Jimmy Saville on Jim’ll Fix It and about the Leeds fans taunting the police because they couldn’t catch Peter Sutcliffe – the Yorkshire Ripper. You may or may not have heard of Luke Haines, who was in previous bands The Auteurs…

In Memory Of…

Anton Reid Antonio Puerta Ray Jones Rhys Jones I like this trend now where the fans stand and give a minutes applause. It is a good thing. We should celebrate their life, not mope about it.

Footie Podding

Channel 4 Football Italia title page

These days you don’t have the time to listen to the pundits on the radio, but you don’t need to tune in anymore to get your kicks on 606 (*groans*), thanks to the interweb you can get your occasional, weekly or if you are really addicted, daily fix with some football podcasts. A guide to what is available online: The best of the best is the Guardian Football Weekly with James Richardson. He of the old Football Italia on Channel 4 and now on Sentanta Sport, complete with his puns can be heard every Monday – and now every Thursday…

I Said Eat My Goal

The original idea behind Football and Music was to be something to accompany the prediction league, but also to facilitate my quest to find all the FA Cup final songs and videos. Now we’ve expanded that even further. Our new quest is to find any and all songs that are footie and music related. It has already started with the Football Calypso and today’s installment is straight outta Harlow… Collapsed Lung (don’t search for them via Google Images. Just don’t.) existed from 1992-1996, and would have been forgotten if it wasn’t for a double A side single released in October…

England v Germany Friendly

…from 1975. To cushion any potential embarrassment possibly created when Ste McL and his 3rd choice picks play in their match tonight against dem Germans – here’s a previous Eng v Ger friendly from 1975 with Bell, Keegan, Hudson, Macdonald, Ball, Shannon and co: Commentator for the World Of Sport broadcast was the much missed Brian Moore, and the summariser at the end was the late great Sir Alf Ramsey. “Ah football eh ? At the old Wembley. Under the floodlights and in the mud. Marvelous.”

Tribble At Mill

The FootieAndMusic Podcast

Tribble for… Lord Ferg of the swamp. Who, just before the season started, decided to sell Rossi and Alan Smith, get another striker in who like the injured Rooney likes to play outside the box and seemingly he’s fallen out with Saha. You have to ask after all this and the missed opportunities to test Kasper on Sunday where he expects the goals to come from. Poor old little Sammy. As a player he was a legend for the Lidipool, you could never knock the rotund one off the ball. After he hung up his boots he was also solid…

Football Calypso

This is it. This is the reason why I started the website up to go with the predicts. Well actually it’s not the reason but it’s a reason. (How this got started was that I was looking for any YouTube clips of any footie teams singing their FA Cup final songs. That idea then spun off into doing a site about Footie and Music.) Anyhoddles… One of the Prediction League players, MickMills played a blinder yesterday and found a couple of clips which I’ve saved for future use. And they are good ones. Stay tuned to this station for publication…
