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

Mate campaign

Norfolk’s premier sports paper The Pink ‘Un are having a big go at The Silly Season.

And they’re not holding back…

Under the headline WHO NEEDS A ‘SUPPORTER’ LIKE THIS? they appear to have started a hate campaign, in which they encourage people in Norfolk who know me to email in pictures, so I’ll be identified should I ever set foot inside Carrow Road again.

After hearing the New Year’s interview on Five Live, they said:

And…

And…

Fair point on that last one. I had (and still have) that attitude for 20 years. I’m just curious what it’s like for fans who support a team who win all the time, so I thought I’d spend a season doing it. After all, The Big Four have ensured it’ll never happen to me as a Norwich fan.

The Pink ‘Un’s Man In The Stands sounds like a very frustrated person. Maybe he should do a Silly Season of his own. Hopefully after this one has finished I would have relieved myself of all trophy angst… Perhaps that’s his problem. That said, I liked the line about me having my prawn sandwich and eating it… Very slick.

Anyway… I’m going to wear a balaclava from now on.

And, did I say that every mate I’ve ever had in the Norfolk area is a bloody brilliant person… Be sure that I can always be relied upon to buy you ALL a friendly pint next time I’m there…

Two pints? ………………………………

A pub?

By the way, I know Norwich fans think I don’t care, but losing to Bury was massively infuriating… I couldn’t help but be gutted by that - so there

Welcome to the world of being misrepresented: the world of The Media.

I say 'welcome', but it's not like I reside there.

The Silly Season:
Thanks very much, it's frightening to be here.

I am I going to be chased through Norwich by the East Anglian paparazzi?
