      Superb! Best thing on this board outside of the Wing Commander.

      Best bit:
      Deisler, Weber, Fischer, Brehme
      Effenberg, Kleff, Flohe, Enke, Wagner, Wimmer
      Grosskreutz, Hamann, Thon, Fritz
      Hieronymus, Kurany, Linke, Manglitz
      I didn't spot Hieronymus initially and was erroneously convinced SR had made him up, possibly as a set-up for a "Boche" gag.

        Right, this really isnt fair:

        Other half wakes up and goes (and this is important, because he knows more Manics than I do)..,#Coffee and loneliness, Mertesacker emptiness#

        Bastard has been reading this forum... AGAIN!

                I can't get this song out of my head now. Fairly annoying, as I don't know the actual lyrics.

                  Nah, that was because I believed you were taking the piss out of me for my failed attempt to be the first to make the "Mertesacker Emptiness" joke this tournament, a la Murder On Zidane's Floor or Won't Carphone Warehouse Withdraw Their Sponsorship?

                    If the manics were to sing this version of the song they would become huge in germany. (or amongst football fans anyway) they'd absolutely adore anyone who went to this effort (even if it was actually you SR)

                      Splendid, and, as your "the making of . . ." bit indicates, "wasting time" taken to a fine art. There were far, far better things you could have been doing with that hour, but fortunately, you did this.

                      And yes, send it to DB.

                        Oddly enough, the first time I ever heard Motorcycle Emptiness was the day Germany knocked us out of Euro 1996.

                          (Anyone tried singing it? Its bloody difficult (but only the key, I can guess the words)

                          And SR, it gets better and better.

                          Publish and be damned.

                            Which tournament did Emptiness play in?

                            Seriously, excellent work. Even after doing the the research, picking which names fit best in which places looks like a chore and a half. E.g. political being covered by three surnames

                              Yeah, and I was committed to a 'no repeats' policy as well (except where one word is repeated three times in succession, like).

                                    This is soooo good, I've been showing it to various people all day and each has been more stunned and impressed than the last!

                                    Well done and thank you El Rino

                                      Bah, he did "Kroos Klose" (to the tune of Phyllis Nelson's "Move Closer") instead. They even went to the trouble of recording it in a session studio.

                                        Not even 'Don't Bring Me Down'? Poor show.

                                        The show has gone off the boil a bit since he left SA.

                                          It turns out "Motorcycle Emptiness" is one of Danny Kelly's favourite songs of all time. If Per Mertesacker signs for Arsenal, I'm gonna have to send Danny the lyric next time he's on air.

                                                Love it, and shared on FB.

                                                Feel it needs the chorus though...
