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

Forkin' hell


Hmm, last night was a strange one for The Silly Season

I found it really hard to get into the spirit of it. Probably because it was a freezing cold Monday night match against Blackburn.

People around me were annoying me, Arsenal were annoying me. I didn’t feel any satisfaction from going five points clear at the top of the Premiership. I didn’t feel any satisfaction from being an Arsenal fan…

More on the match and the Arsenal fans later, but first this video from last night. Once again Arsenal tried to stop me taking pictures inside their oh-so secret GIGANTIC STADIUM WHERE 60,000 PEOPLE SIT.

I tried to discuss it with the steward, but after the camera went off I actually came quite close to my first stadium ejection.

But, the best bit for me is when some guy runs past from nowhere looking really flustered because he’s forgotten what I can only assume is his lucky kitchen utensil. Either that or they give out roast dinners in the bottom tier…



Buy the way, I got the score prediction right again for last night’s match, and didn’t put any money on it AGAIN!
