We like a good lookalike in the Football Transfer Tavern.
Just the other day, I thought Samuel L Jackson had walked in but the last time I checked, Samuel L didn’t have a Scottish accent.
Anyway, last night one of the punters suggested that we have a fancy dress competition and, seeing as it was so close to Halloween, I decided that it was a brilliant idea. Obviously I checked with the landlord first…
I wish you could see the tavern right now; we have David Beckham’s, Whoopi Goldberg’s and even a Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink!
I tried to dress up as my boyhood hero Cher but I just looked like a man in drag…actually, suppose that means I nailed it.
Anyway, after we announced the winners, the customers and I got chatting about football lookalikes and the usual ones cropped up: Manchester United’s Danny Welbeck or Vince from ‘Recess’ etc but someone suggested that Tottenham’s Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches looked like Malia weirdo Richard from ‘The Inbetweeners Movie’.
What do you reckon?
