The Football Transfer Tavern is forever divided over who is the better player, Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo or Barcelona’s Lionel Messi?
The former Manchester United player is the total opposite in terms of playing style to his fellow La Liga star – they’re chalk and cheese.
Some of our punters prefer CR7 because of his swagger and confidence, whereas some prefer the quick feet and artistry of the little Argentine.
One regular said: “Why can’t we just enjoy both? Why do we have to choose?” needless to say, the customers made their feelings quite clear on that suggestion.
One thing both sides agree on is the fact that no one even comes close to them two and they’re the greatest footballers ever. Well, all but one punter agreed with that.
He came in wearing a signed Wayne Rooney Manchester United shirt from last season and then put forward a case for why the England international can be considered world class.
One customer – who come to think of it, looked a lot like Queens Park Rangers’ Joey Barton – took exception to this and got on his high horse in his usual aggressive manner – I’m not even sure why we allow such violent, deluded and pretentious thugs into the tavern.
