A correspondence of yore weighing Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan as musicians

If indeed a singer-songwriter is a viable candidate for the Nobel Prize In Literature, clearly the opinions espoused here favor LC (and after all, though his body of purely literary work isn't abundant, he was an eminently talented standalone writer and poet as well)

Well, the semi-absurdity of weighing art is conveyed here by putting the versus in quotes...

Belgrade 1 Serbia 2

It was a good game and Serbia scored the winner in the 90th minute, Cohen with an easy nod in from a beautiful cross by Dylan. For the Man of the Match award it was Cohen vs Dylan and I am sure that was what the in off the poster had in mind.
