Now and then in the Football Transfer Tavern, we have a bloke who pops in selling authentic football memorabilia.
I know it is hard to trust anyone now with the internet being rife with sellers offering dodgy knock-offs but I can vouch for our guy because he is one the punter’s wife’s uncle’s next door neighbour and you can’t get more reliable than that!
Our landlord has actually purchased a few pieces off him to help improve the interior in the tavern; we have a signed Ali Dia shirt in the ladies toilet, a signed Neville Southall shirt in the gents and also a signed George Weah football boot above the bar.
Anyway, our resident autograph dealer popped in earlier and is currently locked in ‘negotiations’ with our landlord over a signed Romelu Lukaku bicycle – yep, you did read that correctly.
My landlord refused to believe it was a genuine autograph until the seller showed him the following photo of the Chelsea striker who is currently gunning down all before him on loan at Everton.
We do hope Lukaku’s handwriting is as good as his recent goal scoring hot streak because we don’t envy him having to sign curved carbon fibre!
