Well, quite simply, which name should we use for our fantasy league for the World Cup?

Due to the, well, sh... sorry poor turnout of ONE nomination, I've took the liberty of adding two myself!

All songs can be heard (30 second samples) via MyCokeMusic.co.uk - http://sib1.od2.com/common/Framework.aspx?shid=047E005C

Remember, your meant to be judging the name, but I'm sure it'll turn into a song contest :-doh! .

Poll will end on Monday 15th. World Cup fantasy league will begin Thursday May 18th.


About our fantasy league - I'm sure you've all seen our F1 Fantasy League (SuperLiga) thread, and many of the regulars are league members. Well now its time for the big one! We shall be using the Yahoo/FIFA official fantasy game - http://fifaworldcup.yahoo.com/06/en/e/ff/index.html - and again we will have a private fantasy league just for us satellites.co.uk-ers(!).

how about
vinda league / song. vindaloo by fat les
the craziest, catchiest, most anarchic four minutes of pop music I've heard
"Vindaloo" by Fat Les was an old-fashioned footie chant, with a title referring to the fact that curries are now the British national cuisine. A collaboration between actor Keith Allen, Blur member Alex James, and cow-in-formaldehyde artist Damien Hirst, it had martial drums, fuzzy guitar, and a chorus that stays in your head for weeks at a time. The video was a parody of the Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony"--the Richard Ashcroft figure tries to walk moodily down the street, but is soon surrounded and overwhelmed by gleeful England fans, including a Beefeater, crowds of children, and sumo wrestlers carrying buckets of spicy curry.
The lyrics in their entirety: "Where on earth are you from/We're from England/Where do you come from/Do you put the kettle on/Kick it/Nah nah nah nah nah nah.../Bonjour [b/g: nah nah]/Monsieur [b/g: nah nah nah nah nah nah]/We're England!/We're gonna score one more than you!/England!/[whistle blown]/Can I introduce you please to a lump of cheddar cheese/Knit one/Pearl one/Drop one/Curl one/Kick it/Nah nah nah nah nah nah.../We're England!/We're gonna score one more than you/England!/Me and me mum and me dad and me gran/We're off to Waterloo/Me and me mum and me dad and me gran/And a bucket of vindaloo/Bucket/Vindaloo vindaloo vindaloo vindaloo nah nah/Vindaloo vindaloo vindaloo vindaloo nah nah/Vindaloo vindaloo/And we all like vindaloo/We're England/We're gonna score one more than you/England! [repeat chorus until out of breath]":D

I'm sorry for the delay in starting up the fantasy league. This is because Yahoo, who are running the official World Cup fantasy game which we shall be using, appear to have all the organisational skills of a yak.

I've emailed them TWICE today to complain that the fantasy game is not up and running as it should be - it was due to start today - and I have yet to receive anything but an automated reply. Suffice to say, I'm bloody angry 'O'-red!

If, by Sunday they still have not started up, then we shall be forced to find another fantasy game in which to conduct our league. The reason for prefering the official game is that, you would expect, the stats on the players, to me more accurate than elsewhere.

I'll shall check again before the end of tonight, but I may not be able to check again until tomorrow afternoon as I have an exam, how annoying(!). Be sure though that when/if it does start, I shall start the proper official thread for it, so keep your eyes open.
