Joe Hart and Pep Guardiola.
A tale of star crossed lovers, tragically destined to be apart.
Of course in reality Guardiola recognised Hart’s downfalls almost immediately after taking over at Man City and now wants nothing to do with him.
But despite Pep making it evidently clear he’s moved on from their brief tumultuous relationship, Hart seems hellbent on reminding him he exists.
During Burnley’s defeat to Newcastle on Monday night, Hart took matters into his own hands towards the final whistle.
Miles from his goal, leaving it almost completely unguarded, the former England number one temporarily morphed into a tempo-dictating central midfielder.
Not only that, his Burnley team-mates bizarrely saw him as their main source of creativity.
His entertaining cameo disappointingly amounted to nothing, but seeing Hart collecting one-twos and marauding into the Newcastle half was undoubtedly the highlight of a turgid affair.
Amazingly Hart has now conceded more goals yet simultaneously saved more shots than any other Premier League goalkeeper this season.
Does that mean he’s actually really good? Or really bad?
Never change, Joe.
Even if Pep stopped watching a long time ago.
