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.

Matches of Yesteryear Special - U's v Bradford City 30/12/61 by wessex_exile
This one is a special for the Matches of Yesteryear series, as we step slightly outside the original concept of blogs related to my football memorabilia collection. I am delighted that our very own pwrightsknees approached me with an absolutely fantastic idea just before Christmas, and an idea that really deserves this specific slot in our football calendar. It is also particularly appropriate given the terrible coincidence that Martyn King sadly passed on Christmas Day, the all-time record league goal-scorer for the U’s with 130 goals (1959-64).
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Lincoln 27/10/18 by wessex_exile
Firstly, my apologies that this is a bit later than usual – it’s been a pretty hectic week at work, and by the time I got home last night, I was ready for a few beers and not a lot more. As we approach a vital double-header at home for the U’s promotion challenge, and on 12 games unbeaten, we come right up to date with an equally vital home game from last season.
Matches of Yesteryear - Cheltenham v U's 22/2/03 by wessex_exile
The U’s travel to the Globe Arena tomorrow, aiming at the very least to keep the unbeaten run going – though in truth after three somewhat disappointing draws against Exeter, Crawley and Stevenage, surely nothing less than three points is acceptable? Ahead of this trip, the Matches of Yesteryear random number generator has chosen a match which for me has a particularly bitter-sweet poignancy.
Manager interviews: Graham Barrow 1996-1999 by fitzochris
One name in Rochdale’s modern history that seems to be knocked more than most is that of Graham Barrow.

Ahead of tomorrow’s match at Stevenage, the Matches of Yesteryear random match selector has chosen one with some familiar faces in, one or two of whom we will see tomorrow, and one we probably won’t.
