Mother Teresa Declared A Saint ! Liverpool Preparing January Bid !
Monday, 5th Sep 2016 15:18
Even as Mother Teresa was being declared a Saint in front of huge crowds at the Vatican, the transfer committee was already meeting on Merseyside.
Mother Teresa was today officially announced as a Saint with a massive press conference at the Vatican in Rome.
Pope Francis (Not Benali) declared "Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to be a saint." and sporadic applause broke out amongst a capacity crowd in front of St Mark's many of whom had taken advantage of a ticket bundle sponsored by Virgin(Mary) Media that gave a discounted rate for those that also bought tickets for Sunday's mass and the Vatican Choir's Thursday gig outside the Sistine Chapel.
But even as sporadic applause broke out amidst the assembled crowds a shadowy figure at the back was making notes and furtively texting.
Back on Merseyside Liverpool FC's transfer committee was already meeting and preparing the details of a £40 million pound bid to take the latest big name Saint to Anfield.
Speaking in Scouse, Jurgen Klopp said that
"after due deliberation and frequent prayer for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother bishops (Im assuming he is referring to John Bishop and his brother who played for Tranmere here) , we declare and define Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to be a Saint, and that being the case we intend to enroll her among the Saints we have already signed, decreeing that she is to be venerated as such by the whole of the Kop."
Southampton Football Club refused to make a comment, saying only that they were confident that Mother Teresa would be signing a long term contract very soon.
Saints related social media was rife with comments saying that this was typical of the club, that we are desperate for a forward and that Mother Teresa does not have appeared to have played in this position at an time during her career and that it seems that Les Reed has taken vows of chastity and poverty.

After last weeks’ solid point away against Bradford City, tipped by many to be strong promotion contenders, we now face another stern test against fallen giants Bolton Wanderers. Okay, giants may be stretching it a tad, but these guys have won the FA Cup four times, the League Cup twice, and the Charity Shield and Football League (Sherpa Van) Trophy once apiece. Christ, they were in the Premier League just eight years ago. But, they are where they are for a reason, and Saturday is all about 11 v 11, literally on a level playing field…

So here we are, the drôle de guerre is over, the real battle is about to begin. Can we take any positives from the opening exchanges so far? I think so, the style is good, albeit Noah is right that the work in the final third needs considerable improvement if we are going to capitalise on our tippy-tappy triangles in midfield. But we’ve played some decent sides, far better sides than we should expect to face in League 2, and we haven’t been beaten out of sight yet, so let’s see what today brings against a side I think will be there or thereabouts come May next year.

Three days on from our early Carabao Cup exit at the Madjeski, we prepare to start the next cup competition at Fratton Park – at least we can’t be out of this one by full-time – well, not tonight anyway. For those that gain perverse pleasure from such things, had we prevailed against Reading, only Luton Town would have stood between us and another match against Manchester United! Of course, we wouldn’t have done, because we’d be in a completely different strand of reality, and thus a completely different cup draw, but no harm in a bit of Whatiffery.

Here we are then, at the start of a new season, curiously this time already well into September. I plan to continue (time permitting) writing blogs for each matchday, but with the season already considerably compressed, and matches as a result coming thick and fast, my apologies in advance if I don’t make it for every single game.
