While watching a Premier League match recently, we couldn't help but giggle at how some teams in the league are reflective of some car brands. Mixing our two passions is always a bit of fun, and the list down below is our opinion of what the football teams would be if they were car brands.
This is of course just my opinion and it's meant to be taken tongue-in-cheek okay!
Liverpool - Proton
Liverpool has worked tremendously hard to get where they are this year and will probably be crowned Premier League champions soon. Just like Liverpool, Proton is working hard and on the rise, and if they continue with their current momentum, they too will be crowned the king after such a long hiatus.
Manchester City - Perodua
Just like Perodua, Manchester City are the current champions - the team to beat. They have been consistent with their success like Perodua and have always produced the goods no matter what happens.
Leicester City - Audi
Audi in Malaysia is exactly like Leicester in the Premiership. They have had the spotlight on them occasionally but it has since waned. Yes, Leicester is having a resurgence this year and like Audi, we can expect them to punch above their weight especially with their new models.
Chelsea - Toyota
Simply put, never write this brand and team off, cause they are always there among the best, and you never know when they will come up with some magic and what magic they might produce. Just like the new A90 GR Supra.
Manchester United - Nissan
The current situation at United, unfortunately, mimics the current status of Nissan. Man Utd used to produce players the likes of Beckham, Giggs and Scholes, and during these times, Nissan produced the GT-R, the Fairlady, and a whole list of cool cars like the Silvia and many more.
Now, however, United can only create players like Lingard and McTominay while Nissan produces less than imaginative models like the Note and Almera, but just like how United are termed the 'Comeback Kings', we can expect the same from Nissan in the near future.
Tottenham Hotspur - KIA
These two are closely linked because they sometimes produce good stuff and sometimes produce average stuff. They are always there, but a little suspect with their performance. Just as you think they might come up with something good, the results don't go their way. We are looking forward to some badassery with the Seltos though.
Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves) - Subaru
The brand and team that no one ever thinks of until they beat you. Reliable, under the radar, are just some of the words that are linked with these two entities.
Sheffield United - Alfa Romeo
They both have got a bit of this yo-yo thing going for them. They usually are very significant at one thing and very bad at other things. Sheffield United is good in defence but bad in the offence department, while Alfa has an excellent sexy design but a powertrain that could use improving.
Southampton - Volkswagen
A club and vehicle manufacturer that is highly respected but a little industrial. However just like Danny Ings we're hoping the new Golf will score highly!
Arsenal - Honda
Arsenal and Honda are similar in the sense that they are big, have a faithful following and cling on to one thing. While Arsenal fans cling on to the 'Invincibles', all you'll be hearing from Honda fans till the end of time is "VTEC just kicked in yo!"
The rest of the table are a little insignificant for the moment, a little like Opel.
