They are the best of enemies here in the Football Transfer Tavern and it’s fair to say that the sniping between both Manchester United and Liverpool fans never stops by the bar.
After Liverpool fans taunted their United counterparts during the ill-fated reign of David Moyes, calling him a football genius and what have you, the boot is certainly on the other foot with Brendan Rodgers now receiving the genius treatment.
Signing the likes of Mario Balotelli hasn’t helped the Reds boss’ cause and he will hope that with his flurry of new arrivals, he can help the Merseyside giants back into the Champions League after a forgettable campaign in the competition in 2014/15.
For United, they will be back in Europe’s elite club competition subject to negotiating a two-legged qualifier and Red Devils fans were hoping that their side would’ve had more arrivals through the Old Trafford entry doors by this point this summer.
Yes, Memphis Depay has already been captured but our resident United fans are eagerly waiting for the conclusion of the Morgan Schneiderlin transfer, not to mention their much publicised swoop for Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos.
While they don’t often see eye to eye, our landlord has tried to keep the peace by getting our Reds and Red Devils fans to sit down while devising a combined eleven of the club’s respective best players.
Do you agree with what they’ve come up with?
