So, into the breech go England again.
Charging hopelessly towards the big guns of Russia as they they did in 1854 in Balaclava. This time to face the even bigger guns of Brazil, Argentina,Spain and of course The Germans. Or maybe this time it will Panama or Tunisia to send us home? The smaller guns to the side of the valley of death.
Here’s the Tallywags with an uplifting, rousing anthem, that captures the tenacious, die hard English spirit.
The foolish optimism that maybe, just maybe, it’s our time?
Without hope – we have nothing.
The song ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’ is accompanied by a humorous video, that reinvents the England teams past failures. Those red cards, those penalty saves, that hand of god.
The Tallywags are:
Paul Cook (Sex Pistols/Professionals)
Tom Spencer (Professionals/ Men They Couldn’t Hang)
Chris McCormack (Professionals/3CR)
Olga (The Toy Dolls)
Danny McCormack (The Wildhearts)
