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

Norwich Hate

Norwich Hate

11/02/08

And email sent to me today from my Norwich City mate who I used to watch matches with before embarking on The Silly Season:

Norwich Mate: Four, count em, four points from the play offs!!!!!

You can stick your Premiership trophy which, come the day will leave you feeling pleased, but not ecstatic, because you know in your heart of hearts you would much rather be watching the mighty yellows scoring a last minute winner at Wembley to take us up!

And if that happens…. You won’t be there! Think about it…just think about it for a few minutes!!!!!

Please don’t let that happen. Please

With that in mind this is a massive week for The Silly Season. I think my fabricated support for Arsenal is fading – I’m losing my nerve a bit. But tonight is a chance to give my Goonerism a real shot in the arm.

The Blackburn match could take me/us/whatever five points clear at the top of the Premiership tonight, but then if Saturday’s FA Cup match at Old Trafford goes wrong I’m two trophies down.

Score prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Blackburn

Sorry, am I mistaken or did you effectively say you don't want us to win the playoff final juts because you won't be there?

Whilst i do kind of see the point of this experiment if you are a true fan you would want NCFC to win regardless.

The Silly Season:
Sorry, panic got the better of me… I guess I just don't want to be sat at home as Norwich take to the field at Wembley through my own ludicrous idea. I thought I'd chosen a transitional season for this experiment but, thrillingly, maybe not.

Obviously I want City to go up - it would be amazing, although it would feel weird 'rejoining' them, as it were, the in the Premiership.
