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




Phew, last night’s Carling Cup match was tense. Very tense.

Best Arsenal match The Silly Season’s been to so far, without question.

I’m unable to go into too much blathering detail until tomorrow morning, but here’s a taster of what happens after dark on north London derby day…

Warning: This video contains loads of swearing, and I think I can hear someone being racist.

Scared? Me? Yup…

Galatasaray it ain't.

The Silly Season:

Good point. I've failed you… I'll get a picture of a shooting next time.

So, if Arsenal were rubbish, and you still felt it was the best game you've seen, does that mean you're just too used to watching lower league football???

The Silly Season:
Errrrr, yeah. No... Yeah.

Basically, every team has flashes of brilliance during a match – even in the lower leagues – but Arsenal's flashes of brilliance are absolutely phenomenal. It's the skill of individual players that amazes me when watching Arsenal so far. Like Diaby and Fabregas.

But it was the best game so far because of the occasion, excitement and tension I reckon. Plus, there was a dragon fly - don't forget that.

For crying out loud man is it not enough that you have spurned the City in favour of a years glory hunting but do you also have to make us look like a bunch of girls as well!

A few blokes shouting at each other outside the ground is nothing at all. Have you never been to Portmand Road to watch Norwich?

The Silly Season:
Eh? How have I made you lot look like a bunch of girls? City did a good enough job of that by losing to Bury.

Admittedly, I might have panicked a bit when those Spurs fans came running up the steps. It wasn't exactly The Football Factory was it.

Are you the real Eric Fuglestad?
