I’ve been working at the Football Transfer Tavern for only a few months but my landlord, who has run the joint since the Premier League began in 1992, said he has never known a season like it.
For so long, all the Arsenal regulars were dreaming of finally lifting that Premier League trophy again but, as expected, Arsene Wenger’s boys imploded.
Then the Chelsea supporting customers started talking of a Champions League and Premier League double before they became unstuck against mighty Sunderland – honestly, you should have been in the tavern that day.
We only had one Mackem in and he decided to powerslide across the bar with his shirt raised (It was highly amusing but obviously my landlord had to bar him).
Then the Liverpool punters could see the finish line, all they had to do was stop Crystal Palace’s Dwight Gayle scoring. The Reds still haven’t set foot in the tavern since Monday night.
The Eagles’ comeback meant that Liverpool pretty much gifted the trophy to Manchester City even before today!
