WELL, THAT'S GOING TO UPSET SVEN

We're not entirely sure why this is being treated as an event of any sort of magnitude, but NME.com is currently being led by Lily Allen's pronouncement on Sven's England team:

"Thank god Sven's reign is over," declared Allen. "England have been shit in this tournament, saying that, I was proud of them from the second half of (the Portugal) game. I think football reflects the state of a country at that time, and to be honest I'm with Germany from here on. Germany have managed to shake their stereotype of being a square, uncultured and over-efficient society and have embraced a 21st century way of living.

"I was in Germany last week, they have a good health service, great opportunities for young people and seem to be a country I would be proud to be a part of and I think there football reflects that. England, on the other hand, play in a way that reflects our society -money-minded, confused, lacking control and direction and most of all bored.


Er... right. Coming up later: Sandi Thom rates Andy Murray's chances.

NME in another humiliatingly desperate attempt to hook it's cart to the latest hyped cool....

Like tickets to a secret Fonda 500 (the next Arctic Monkeys?) gig, the NME sold out a long, long time ago. Then again, it now lives up to it's name. Lily Allen is indeed New, she's musical in the "cat with its arse sewn up" way and her career will be the epitome of "express" being both quick and non-stopping on its way to obscurity.
