Hi Joel, Before the World Cup I sent you a cd called England United/Anthem England and was wondering what you think of it and whether you've featured it? Whilst there are a large number of world cup pop songs out there, ours has been well received elsewhere since it seems to be one of only a very few genuine 'anthems' for match day build-up. You can obviously also use it for other sports events, like the Ashes Cricket and the rugby and cricket world cups next year. Kind regards, Noel Ashton Duffin Ashton Duffin

I think your sports coverage is great. You make it so entertaining and are so full of enthusiasm. Keep up the good work.

Phil Baker
Hi joel, I have come up with a simple lyric change to Queen's "We are the Champions" that i think we should be singing at the last two home game from now on. the chorus now reads, We are the champions my friends, And we'll keep on scoring to the end, We are the Champions, Urrz's are the Champions, No time for loser's, cause we are the champions of the world. The Urrz's is oviously sung out very load as we normally do when Paul tells us to make some noise. What do you think ? regards Phil Baker (Kingsclere)
