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

Big bother


The video didn’t work of the latest celebrity to (sort of) endorse The Silly Season, so here’s a picture of John McCririck leaving Ashburton Grove in his limo.

(Does everyone who’s been on telly for five minutes get a free car and chauffeur?)

I don’t deliberately annoy celebrities (see Legendary DJ joins debate) but, after my trusty Zippo lighter failed on me, I couldn’t help but notice McCririck’s seven-foot long cigar.

While he was happy to ignite my roll-up with his considerable Monte Cristo, he didn’t react well when I said: “I didn’t know you were an Arsenal fan.” To which he rolled his eyes and produced his considerable midriff, covered in Newcastle’s famous stripes.


More Arsenal censorship?
I can’t remember what happened exactly here because I was looking for my row, but this looks to me like Arsenal taking their copyright laws to extreme measures again. (Remember what they did at the Wigan match? See Camera Shy)

Plus, spot the bad nickname…


Score prediction: Manchester City 1-3 Arsenal
