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

Yellow army

09/06/08

Just writing this at exactly 76minutes 23seconds in the Romania-France match.

Very exciting… They’re passing the ball around really well and Mutu looks good.

Starting to feel genuinely excited now. There is something fresh and new to supporting someone you have no history with. A blank canvas.

Don’t want to speak too soon, but this could be the first underdog triumph, even if it’s only a 0-0. Plus I’m a few minutes away from my first correct score.

So, me and Adam have been doing some research on our new team as announced on Friday (see, Romania: the Brazil of the Balkans)

This is him by the way…

Thought I’d introduce my Silly Season: Euro 2008 Special comrade properly. I think (I hope) he was in a play in this picture, which is why he’s covered in blood.

So, he emailed the Romanian Embassy (not covered in blood) to try to get linked up with some supporters groups in England. We think there might be quite a few groups, so hopefully they’ll get in contact.

Also, we can exclusively reveal that our first celebrity Romania fan (for Euro 2008) is: Lembit Opik, who has chosen Romania becuase of his Romanian fianceé Gabriela of The Cheeky Girls. In real footballing life he’s a Leicester fan. Unlucky mate.

Betting

Adam’s not wasted any time wasting his hard-earned on our adopted club. He had a punt on Betfair, and got 210/1 on Romania to win Euro 2008, with Adrian Mutu as top scorer; 48/1 on Romania to win the tournament; and 50/1 on Mutu as top scorer.

If they come in he stands to win about £2k.

91:21 now, and still no score.

Come on the Romanians!!!
