Things have come to a bit of a standstill here in the Football Transfer Tavern as we all peer over to see a photograph that has punters scrambling to the bar.
Our landlord shows a photo of a punter who looks remarkably like Manchester United boss David Moyes, drinking in our tavern itself!
After the derby day drubbing by Manchester City, as our barmaid points out, she would not blame the Red Devils manager if he came in here and bought all of our top shelf tequila!
United have now not only lost to Liverpool but also to bitter rivals Manchester City as well. Not only were they comprehensively beaten 4-1 but Moyes’ men looked bereft of ideas.
Clearly without star man Robin van Persie, the side will struggle, despite a cracking solo performance by Wayne Rooney yesterday.
One of our punters even puts down his fork long enough to suggest that Moyes should look towards reserving a table here at the tavern should his side get knocked out of the Capital One Cup by arch-rivals Liverpool (and Luis Suarez!) this week.
Not only will fans be on the verge of mutiny if that happens, but the manager himself could well be looking for another way to spend his days!
Ever generous, our landlord notes that should ‘Moyes’ choose to visit again, we will let him have a tab at the bar, put on the highlights of the derby game and help him realise where his side went wrong!
