We have just burst out in laughter here in the Football Transfer Tavern at the latest viral image we have been handed by one of our punters.
It seems that the Mesut Ozil love-fest spans much further than just the tavern and North London alone; in fact it seems to go further than even we could have imagined!
As our landlord points out, even we were slightly shocked at the outpouring of grief when Ozil left Real Madrid. Instead of chanting for their new signing – who according to Real Madrid fans was called ‘Gareth Bailey,’ they chose to sing Ozil’s name instead.
Given his form since joining Arsenal, not to mention his all round good guy charm (and the gorgeous girlfriend he has), the adoration for Ozil is pretty much what we would have expected.
As our landlord quips, it seems to reach so far and wide that even the German national team seem to be affected. The young Swedish mascot from their midweek international seems to be desperate to have a picture with the German wizard – so much so, that he leans over and has no interest whatsoever in getting a picture with Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng – despite being stood right in front of the player! On Ozil’s birthday and everything!
The majority of our punters in the tavern seem to think it was a good move! We love Ozil and it seems that the cheeky Swedish lad seems to share our sentiments!
