Here goes...

Our Lady of Walsingham - pray for your Dowry.

In the 1970s when Leeds Utd were doing well, dear departed Aunty Mary, God rest her soul, asked her PP if she should pray for the team. "Oh dear Lord, yes, Mary" said the old canon (God rest HIS soul), "if they win they bring glory to the city, and if they play like men they are a good example to the young boys".

I'm not sure Leeds Utd were a very good example to the young boys in the 70s. Hopefully this lot can do better.

As for Wayne? A pity the beads weren't in his hands, but, hey, it's a start.

Is that a photoshop or a real pic?

No - a genuine picture.

Wayne and Coleen are both Catholics. They were married by a scouse priest in a private chapel in Italy but there was a bit of a fuss as I don't think they had the permission of the local Ordinary.

"Eh! Eh! Calm down, your Lordship, calm down!"

I think I heard a few days ago that FIFA had banned any acts of religious devotion on the pitch.

If so, I suspect this is Rooney's response. His spoken response would probably be unprintable on a family-firnedly blog.

It's not working. Players are crossing themselves left right and centre. Good for them. I suspect it is unenforceable.
