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

The Liverpool Trilogy concludes

The Liverpool Trilogy concludes


So, unless Arsenal beat Man U an Saturday, anything other than a victory tonight is as good as the end of the season.

I really want Arsenal to win - but that could be because I don’t want to see The Silly Season turn into a farce… OK - even more of one.

That said, I think I’ve made a breakthrough with my not-very-scientific study of the psychology of a football fan. Well, this football fan anyway. Although I think I’ll wait to see if Arsenal are still in a chance of winning anything before revealing it.

I guess it won’t be long…


What I need tonight is a heady, sunny European evening. When the players are coming on to the pitch and it’s still a bit light - but the floodlights are blaring out, and the flags are flying high.

There’s no better place for that than Anfield - so let’s be ‘aving you Arsenal.


Score prediction: only a fool would bet against Liverpool… Liverpool 1-2 Arsenal AET

Bad luck about Arsenal losing to Liverpool. Was a cracking game for the neutral though - had everything, excitement, drama, some excellent football and decent goals.

However, will this defeat mean we'll be seeing you at Portman Road this Sunday? You know you want to!

Anyway, what happened to asking the Family about feeling detached from the club?


The Silly Season: Yeah, I kind felt like last night might not have been the best tieme to ask them. A punch in the face may have followed. Anyway, I'll get on to that and report back.

I do wish I was going to Portman on Sunday. Preventing Ipswich from getting in the play-offs could be the best thing we (Norwich) do all season. So the answer is: yes, I do want to.

Cheers mate

Sorry, I just can't resist - ha ha ha!

Great site and grat idea though. Just can't believe the one year you pick a big 4 team to follow you pick one that's gonna win f#ck all. And what makes it especially great is that you chose to jinx arsenal! Next year could you follow chelsea? On your current form hopefully that'll mean abramovich getting deported and stamford bridge being sold for luxury flats to pay off vast debts when his assets are frozen, and the side relocating to become dublin chelsea.

Please, don't ever declare yourself a north end fan. We're quite capable of ballsing things up as it is, without your "support" making it worse!

Better luck back with norwich next season, hopefully see you in the play-offs or better still fighting over top spot...

The Silly Season: Ha ha cheers mate…

It's a pleasure to have such jinxing powers. I'd "support" Man U first, and get them relegated…

Well done on probably staying up. Irvine's done a great job. Just one thing: how the hell did Preston get Chris Brown to score a goal? He was worse than useless at Norwich.
