We're a little surprised at how previous the FA appear to be in securing the services of Kasabian to write the World Cup song for 2006; it's still far from clear England will be in the World Cup next summer, and it's touch-and-go if Kasabian will be, surely? We're far from convinced that the Kasabian songwriting effort is guaranteed to be the official song - we suspect the FA was all "go away, do what you like, have fun, whatever" rather than taking time off from sleeping with each other's secretaries to actually come up and sign a proper deal. However, recent years have shown they don't have a half-assed clue about choosing an act to write a song anyone can care about, so it is possible they really did tell Serge Pizzorno and the boys to go off and thinking of rhymes for Rooney (which is tricky) or "angry-headed potato-faced bus-sheltering striker" (which would be a bit easier).

The Franz Ferdinand wrote a song for Scotland after the Jocks were as good as out, barring the most unlikely of slimmest arithmetical possibilities. There's hopeless romanticism and then there's blind stupidity.

Ah, but you can see the logic of getting a band like FF in to do a song - if there's the faintest chance of Scotland qualifying, you want to make sure you've already blocked off the chances of a Del Amitri or a Deacon Blue tune being adopted...

I'm not sure they were asked. I think they just went ahead and wrote it, no doubt being the only Scottish musos who believed there was any point. Still, mention of Franz Ferdinand in the vicinity of a German world tournament has a nice air of familiarity about it.
