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

In your 'ead son


Football fans are a creative bunch aren’t they…

After the Newcastle match The Silly Season discovered this superb unofficial Arsenal merchandise stall… aka, a grit bin.

On sale? A compilation CD of hits with the lyrics altered to honour Arsenal players and express hatred for Spurs.

I challenge you to listen to this video and NOT spend the rest of the day singing “Adebayor” to the tune of UB40’s I Got You Babe in your head. It’s horrible… I haven’t been able to shake it for a week now. I wake up and it’s still there…

Other classics include The Prodigy’s Firestarter with the lyrics changed to: “I’m the Tottenham hater, twisted Tottenham hater".

I’ll buy a copy next time I walk past and put it on the site.

I think Adebayor might be my favourite player now though. Here he is in action for Norwich… Or maybe not, sadly.
