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

Supergrass support The Silly Season


First it was legendary DJ Steve Lamacq, then it was legendary horse racing tipster John McCririck

Now, legendary British rock stars Supergrass have joined The Silly Season’s ludicrous crusade.

The Silly Season bumped into them in a central London pub where we briefly got talking about footie. Gaz is a Man United fan, Danny a Spurs fan, Rob - Birmingham City. Mick? “I just like snooker, mate.”

Supergrass: Danny, Rob, Gaz and Mick

So, I explained the idea…

Lead singer Gaz: “It’s an interesting idea, but the game changes all the time. It’s an ever-changing sport. Who’s to say it’ll be Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool forever. Why does it always have to be them?”

Danny (drums): “Well, it probably will be for about 10 years at least Gaz. But teams do make it to the Premiership at least. Look at Reading.”

Rob (keyboards): “I think it’s a really bad idea. I can see your point, but you’re boycotting your team, man.”

Some interesting views that kind of concluded with them thinking it was a sh*t idea. But as I shook their hands and went on my way, I could hear the debate rage on in the Supergrass camp.

You can’t say The Silly Season doesn’t get you thinking about the whole notion of football support.
