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

In a Mootu


What do we do now?

After last night’s very sad but rather uninspiring attempt of Romania to beat Holland The Silly Season is at sea.

I did really want Romania to win, and last night felt… different. It felt like I was going to watch the team I support. But, that said, my support for the team, quite understandably, was/is wafer-thin. I’m already looking around to see who else I can support now.

But is that allowed, or should there be some rule to this - like support the team who put Romania out. Or not support anybody?

Me and Adam’s football-supporting relationship has hit a rocky patch too. He wants us to go for Italy now. I want to go for anyone but Italy…

Maybe I should relent – that would be a proper test, turning a hatred for a particular team into full-blown support. Don’t get wrong, I love Italian football, it’s just all the moaning and skriking the Azzuri do in major tournaments… Make the biggest noise and you get your own way syndrome, it call it.

Or maybe we should support different teams now - rival it up…

Or maybe you lot should decide.
