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

Hmm, last night was a strange one for The Silly Season

I found it really hard to get into the spirit of it. Probably because it was a freezing cold Monday night match against Blackburn.

People around me were annoying me, Arsenal were annoying me. I didn’t feel any satisfaction from going five points clear at the top of the Premiership. I didn’t feel any satisfaction from being an Arsenal fan…

More on the match and the Arsenal fans later, but first this video from last night. Once again Arsenal tried to stop me taking pictures inside their oh-so secret GIGANTIC STADIUM WHERE 60,000 PEOPLE SIT.

I tried to discuss it with the steward, but after the camera went off I actually came quite close to my first stadium ejection.

But, the best bit for me is when some guy runs past from nowhere looking really flustered because he’s forgotten what I can only assume is his lucky kitchen utensil. Either that or they give out roast dinners in the bottom tier…



Buy the way, I got the score prediction right again for last night’s match, and didn’t put any money on it AGAIN!

Next time they make you stop recording just say you're compiling a film for Alisher Usmanov. They'll surely understand.

I recommend you predict a scoreline of Man Utd 1-2 Arsenal. A bit of United bashing will get you back into the "Arsenal Way".

The Silly Season:
Ha! I'm David Dein's undercover man.

I'll put a tenner on that scoreline then…

This seems really strange to me... I have about 3/4 videos of 'Bubbles', and have never been stopped when brandishing my camera. Then again, I don't get searched at the gate where my male friends do. Is it my innocent face? Or do I look scary? Heh, maybe it's a girl thing.

It seems like I was happier about you going 5 points clear than you were. I saw Tony Gale on Sky Sports News last night and he summed it up, in my eyes: he likes to see the title change hands. Hey, if we can't be involved, let's at least make it exciting.

P.S. Next time I go to West Ham I'm taking a spoon. I knew there was a reason we'd had some rubbish home form.

The Silly Season:
Take a whole case of cutlery… and some plates.

You might win the league…
