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

Go Romania!

Go Romania!

How do you say “come on Romania” in Romanian?

Please write in and let us know.

It should have been the first thing we learned really…

I know it’s “Hup Holland” for the dutch - I went to a world cup match in ‘98 against Yugoslavia (Davids was imperious). Then the car broke down outside the ground in Toulouse.

Anyway, all this major tournament reminicing is giving me the fever – tonight will be MASSIVE. Surely, Van Basten will go under-strength - he’d love to wind up Italy and France in that way, wouldn’t he?

I know it’s not a very confident way of urging Romania through. We should believe in their ability – but hey, I’m a Norwich fan…

Anyway, until we know what Romania’s rallying cry is, let’s just say:

Come on Romania – Brazil of the Balkans!!!!!!

Score prediction: Holland 2-2 Romania

Italy 1-1 France

I live on Green Lanes. There must be a Romanian there. There are pretty much everybody else. I'm also worried I'm objectifying human beings. I'm going to find a real live Romanian man/woman/child and demand they contact you because quite frankly, you need it.

On another note, me and my friend have decided to start following Barnet for a season due to my lack of football being so far away from Liverpool. We were discussing making a blog, inspired by those such as yours. Maybe a reverse silly season? Though my attention span isn't that great so I'll probably forget my password by October.

The Silly Season: Many thanks for the support for finding Romaians, but strangely my desire to meet a person of that nationality has faded now.

Yes, definitely a good idea. Myself and new Silly Season collaborator Adam were discussing a similar thing. He's a Liverpool fan, and trying to convince him to do a reverse SS. If both are actually set up, it'd be really interesting to see the different things that happened to each blog/person.
