Pint sized footballing magician can’t get enough of the Mancunian band.
“Ever since he has been playing in Manchester, Carlitos has told me how great Oasis was. I kept promising I would listen to them, but I never got round to it.
“On the plane on the way to the World Cup Carlitos made me listen to their first two albums. I have to say I wasn’t expecting much but it is some of the best material I have ever heard. They are absolutely amazing.
“Their songs are incredible. I would have to say Supersonic and Live Forever are my favourites. I have been listening to their stuff on my iPod dock in the hotel room, on the way to the matches and in the dressing room. I can’t believe it’s taken me all this time to finally listen to them.
“I’ve been watching their live performances on YouTube and they look like they’d be amazing to see in concert. I asked Carlitos if we could go and see them in Manchester or London in concert, but he told me they have split up.”
Alas, the tumultuous beat combo split for good last year, when Noel Gallagher grew tired of his brother Liam’s thoroughly abhorrent personality. Yet the fact that Oasis have ceased to function doesn’t appear to be an obstacle for FIFA World Player of the Year and his teammates, who have vowed to get them back together – at any cost – if the Albiceleste win the World Cup:
“We have agreed that if we win the World Cup we want to fly them over to Argentina for our celebration party.
“We just need them to name their price.” (Dirty Tackle)
Lucky Carlos Tevez didn’t hand Leo the later works by the Mancunian band as then he may well have a different point of view. There is no denying the brilliance of Definitely Maybe and What’s The Story Morning Glory and I have an image in my head of the Argentine footballing genius putting on his headphones and listening to the opening to Rock ‘n’ Roll Star and his little face lighting up with joy.
Chances of a reunion for a one off gig in Buenos Aires to celebrate Argentina’s World Cup success….pretty low.
