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

Operation Re-Canaryise

14/04/08

Phase 1 of Operation Re-Canaryise has begun it seems…

My Norwich supporting mate (who I’ve shunned during my season of ‘protest’ with The Big Four) and his girfriend invited The Silly Season around to his flat for dinner on Friday night…

After a lovely risotto from Mrs Mate, he plyed me with real ale and then insisted on watching the 2003/2004 promotion season DVD.

Then, while drunk, we went on eBay and looked for old Norwich shirts – and he pressed ‘buy’ on a book about Norwich’s 92/93 UEFA Cup qualifying season.

I even bid for a 92/93 away shirt – the one that was mostly white with a blackcurrent ‘splash’ across the top. (As is always the case with Norwich away kits, it was probably worn once by the team on a pre-season tour of Iceland or something – anyway, its that rare I can’t find a picture of it.)

Stupid drunken football reminiscence… I tried to resist it, but it was brilliant.

And, as my football support runs dangerously along parallel lines, so do the fortunes of Norwich City and Arsenal.

Both were trying to upset their main rival’s bid for The Premiership title/Play-offs; both took the lead; both lost 2-1…

Ludicrously typical of The Silly Season experience then…
