It was a weird one in the Football Transfer Tavern, on Sunday. The atmosphere, as the punters filtered in around 1pm, was electric.
However, as the title race between Liverpool and Manchester City played out, the punters’ interest slowly waned, the flow of pints gradually dried up and many headed for the exit door when Vincent Kompany smashed home the Citizens’ second.
My landlord was gutted that the season finale didn’t live up to the excitement and twists and turns of the previous 37 Premier League games. Or that there wasn’t another Aguerooooooo moment, because that would’ve meant more cash in the till.
By the time that Manchester City lifted the title, there was just a smattering of City fans left and one random Wolverhampton Wanderers supporter (no idea why).
Taking advantage of the unusually quiet tavern, I managed to grab a bar stool and watch the celebrations – that’s right, I get paid to watch football.
In amongst all the banners, confetti and players, one person caught my eye. It appears one City ‘player’ has gone and pulled a classic John Terry move!
