With each fixture list that passes, Liverpool fans are becoming more frequent visitors to the Football Transfer Tavern as their confidence about a genuine title challenge builds.
Ignoring the results against Southampton and Arsenal, Brendan Rodgers’ side have enjoyed a very good start to the Premier League season.
One, rather inebriated, punter was telling me that he knows why Liverpool are having such a successful start to this campaign.
I told him that it was obvious; it was down to the form and combination of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez – or the ‘SAS’ if referring to them in this way doesn’t make you cringe!
He laughed and told me it was because the red half of Merseyside are playing Jim Carrey’s multi talented movie character, The Mask in defence.
Needless to say I was confused but when he showed me a picture on his phone, it all became a lot clearer.
It is safe to say Liverpool’s Martin Skrtel won’t be winning any beauty contests anytime soon but lookalike contests on the other hand, he most certainly will!
