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

Reading too much into it…


Reading at home is The Silly Season’s next Arsenal match…

But is it my last?

The Family have invited me to “a mate’s party” after the match in King’s Cross. I believe King’s Cross is mainly an area with disused warehouses behind the railway station.

King’s Cross yesterday

I hope this ‘party’ isn’t their way of thanking me for jinxing the club with dishonourable support, which led to a season of crocked star players and cruel, last-minute losses.

I’m also intending to ask them how they feel about Arsenal these days – whether the domination of the Big Four have taken any of the pleasure away for them. I guess I’ve got nothing to lose if they do want to kill me.

Will this be my last match in an Arsenal shirt?

Am I looking forward to the Reading match? Yes and no really. Will it be the moment I decide – through all the adversity, bad penality decisions, and cruel luck – that I love Arsenal forever? Or will I be concentrating more on Norwich’s nail-biting relegation-avoiding attempts at home to West Brom?

Yes, I have noticed that Norwich have somehow slipped back into ‘it’.


In other news, I’ve made contact with the bloke who turned from Arsenal to Shrewsbury – he sold his support on eBay – and he’s happy to talk! When he comes off his holiday on Tuesday though.

So, don’t go away just yet, readers. I may be posting by means of a séance by Monday - and who wouldn’t want to hear about what it’s like in the afterlife?


Score prediction: I’ve just got a feeling - not about dying! about Reading: Arsenal 0-1 Reading
