There's only four teams involved in football's top honours these days, so what's it like to win silverware every season? This is the blog of one football fan who decided to, fully and unconditionally, do the unthinkable and change the football team he supported to spend one season at the top... AND NOW HE'S DOING A SIMILAR THING FOR EURO 2008 WITH A MATE BECAUSE THE SEASON'S FINISHED AND THEY'RE BOTH BORED

United we'll fall



What a draw. Now, The Silly Season really does hate United. It’s a perfect way for Arsenal to prove themselves after the 5-1.

Seriously, this could make or break the whole season. Lose the match and Fergie’s mind games could make Arsenal’s young boys blow the league as well… Arsenal could be another cup down, and it’ll only be February by then.

I texted The Family very excitedly…

They just couldn’t believe I couldn’t identify Walcott. Don’t suppose that’ll be forgotten in the pub tomorrow.


Congratulations to Colm for identifying the mystery Arsenal player picture (see Cup Upset, below). I say congratulations, but I don’t know the true answer, but it looks about right.

Anyway, apologies to Colm, but your prize of a night down the pub with Norwich Mate is cancelled (he never answers my texts these days). The Silly Season has now been banned from holding competitions for misleading the public.

I like the picture actually. It’s a bit like The Scream by Edvard Munch… Or maybe not.


In denial
Do you ever do that thing where you follow your club through the cup draw to see who they would have played had they not been knocked out? Even though I’m not supposed to be involved with Norwich this season, it’s so frustrating. They would have played Southampton away (winnable) and then Bristol Rovers away (well winnable). Quarter-final at least.

And they would have played Southampton on Saturday just gone, and they’re playing Southampton again on Tuesday - just like Arsenal did on Saturday, and are doing on Tuesday, with Newcastle. I’m talking too much about Norwich again aren’t I?

Score prediction for Tuesday night: Arsenal 2-1 Newcastle United
