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

Cup upset

Cup upset


It’s a never-ending tirade of matches when you support one of The Big Four. Europe this, semi-final that…

Do any of these fans have any money left?

The Silly Season has decided to sit out this cup fixture with Newcastle through fear of groundhog day and bankruptcy (they play again in the league on Tuesday). I’m still upset at the way Arsenal behaved in defeat to Spurs anyway.

If Norwich players had a fight every time they shipped four goals there’d be no squad left. At least they can take defeat.

I did the pub quiz with Norwich Mate last night… The first words he said to me? No, not, “Alright mate". More like, “Well that’s one cup gone, you massive loser.” He also said he felt “great” when he saw the final Spurs score.

Cup competition
Here’s a quiz for you lot. The Silly Season was sifting through its football photos the other day, when this action shot turned up. Thing is I can’t work out which player it is. First to get it right wins an afternoon in the pub with Norwich Mate…


Thanks to Norwich’s early exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Bury (still can’t believe it), there’s now no chance City could be drawn with Arsenal. Now that would have been a test of The Silly Season’s nerve.

Score prediction: Arsenal 4-2 Newcastle

I believe thats Theo Walcott, good sir.

The Silly Season:

Hey, thank you mate.

Now I look at it, it does kind of look like the way he runs.

I have a sneaking suspicion there's very little chance you would have supported Arsenal if that little fixture had occured.

The Silly Season:
Ha! I think I would have internally combusted if I'd gone anyway near that match. It's like when you wander what's past the universe... your head goes funny.
