We like to mix things up in the Football Transfer Tavern and last night we had a ‘black tie’ event.
The punters seem to really enjoy our themed events; they’re fun, popular and, an added bonus is, they’re very profitable.
I was on the doors last night and had to stop an Arsenal punter coming in, in his full Arsenal kit with ‘Ozil’ on the back of his shirt. However, he kicked up a fuss and said he was adhering to the dress code as he was in ‘Mesut and tie’.
I had to laugh and I let the bloke in.
The guy next to him in the queue was a Manchester United fan and he quipped: “Ahh there’s the wonderful Mesut Ozil. I was wondering where he was because he didn’t turn up at Old Trafford yesterday.”
To be honest, it is hard to argue with his point.
Maybe it is time for Arsene Wenger to rest or discipline Ozil as he’s clearly been crossing the pond way too often to promote his new collaboration with Justin Timberlake?
We’re sure we will be discussing this point during the tavern’s lock-in tonight.
