The challenge to become holder of The Roman Chalice has now turned international.

Thanks to Brexit and the Coronavirus, many Brits are now petrified of anywhere, anyone or anything overseas, which isn’t the Isle of Wight.

Not the Roman Chalice. It shows no fear. This trophy was once the pride of a number of famous British football clubs, such as Arsenal, Newcastle and Slough.

The Roman Chalice has now packed up and emigrated to Greece!


FT: Arsenal 1-2 Olympiakos (2-2 agg).

It’s over! The Emirates is stunned. Mikel Arteta’s side have been dumped out of the Europa League on away goals in the last 32.


This is how BBC Sport broke the news to the world, using Twitter.

Olympiakos will be happy to have progressed in the Europa League, but they’ll be ecstatic to be returning home to Greece with the Chalice.

As you can see, the fans were dancing in the streets of Athens.

Congratulations, Olympiakos. Not only on winning the Roman Chalice, but for coming second in the SEAN’S STORIES BEST FACE ON A FOOTBALL CREST COMPETITION. The winner, as I am sure you will agree, is Hemel Hempstead.

Sorry, Olympiakos, but nothing beats a royal, with a passion for gluttony and bigamy. At least you’ve got the Chalice, which, as Larry David would say, is “pretty, pretty, pretty good”.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
