Bonfire night is a wonderful spectacle in the Football Transfer Tavern but perhaps the famous song line “Remember, remember the 5th of November” should be replaced with “the 5th of February”.
Now, don’t worry I haven’t lost the plot…yet.
I’m actually referring to some rather bizarre birthday coincidence that one of the punters brought to my attention.
The signs are good for Manchester United’s latest wonderkid Adnan Januzaj who shares this birth date with some stellar company, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Neymar.
The tavern was quite quiet last night and all my work was done (kind of) so a few of the customers and I decided to see who we shared our birthday with. A bit of light hearted amusement to pass the time.
One of the guys was a Gooner and was spitting feathers when he found out he shares his birthday with former Tottenham Hotspur defender Ramon Vega!
Another punter has the same birth date as Lady Gaga.
Rather amusingly, two of the regulars shared a birthday with Noel Edmonds.
Me? I was born on the 5th February and well, take a look for yourselves…
