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

Winning isn't anything


Well done to Chelsea and Man Utd for making the European Cup completely unexotic.

Just remembered. I can spend my European Cup Final Fund now. I don’t need it to get to Moscow anymore.

You know, that actually feels like a large weight has been lifted off my shoulders. This season-long pressure I’ve had to win something…

Is that what it’s like for fans of Big Four clubs? The only surprise in a season for a Big Four fan is if they don’t anything.

Is that not a bit weird?

Shame I had to alienate almost every single Norwich fan in Britian to find that out…

Anyway, in case you didn’t know, the European Cup Final Fund was money The Silly Season was betting on Arsenal matches to raise the cash for Moscow.

The European Cup Final Fund yesterday

As things stand, it could now get me 10 cheese and onion pasties at Carrow Road or four burgers at the Emirates.

My European Cup (Pie)

Yup, it’s £24.

Anyway, stick around. Next week it’s the start of The Silly Conclusions series - where I decide what to do about this football-supporting mess I’m in, and work out what all this was about.


I’m really hungry now…
