Here in the Football Transfer Tavern we know that the transfer window can prove confusing for some people, especially newcomers, but as one of our punters brings us an image to the bar when ordering a refuel, we are wondering quite who is confused here.
The image is a rather hilarious one, and given our barmaid does not have the best eyesight, she is wondering if that is new Manchester United signing Marouane Fellani or an Arsenal fan who has decided to use their hair as a rather misplaced tribute.
The comings and goings of the window can be difficult to keep up with even for the best of us and given when arriving at Manchester City, Robinho promptly declared he was thrilled to be joining Manchester United (not exactly the best way to endear himself to City fans) we had to wonder if Fellaini had misunderstood just what club he was supposed to be joining.
Either that or this particular Gunner has confused Mesut Ozil with the Everton player.
Fellaini became somewhat of a cult hero at Everton and we all know just how popular his shall we say original hairstyle became – with tribute wigs being sold and fans having masks of the player’s face to boot.
Over a pie and gravy, our landlord is trying to make out quite who the man in question is, and we seem to have come to the conclusion that it is indeed a fan.
One of our punters quips that given Arsenal missed out on a whole host of targets this summer, perhaps their fans have now resorted to pretending that they have signed people instead! A wise bit of advice for the big haired Gunners fan – a hair cut could be wise before Arsenal play United this season!
