You'll Never Wed Alone

It's a cliché that football-mad grooms sometimes have to miss the big match to attend their wedding. Well, here's an idea that will ensure that they don't miss anything: hold the wedding at the ground. Liverpool Football Club offer Weddings at Anfield, complete with "exclusive photo opportunities within the hallowed stadium, standing on the treasured KOP, or beneath the famous “THIS IS ANFIELD” sign, a marvellous backdrop for your Wedding Album".

Quite what Bill Shankly would make of it, I can only guess. He would probably have one of his witty quips available. A nearly-relevant one that springs to mind went something like this: "I was the best manager in Britain because I was never devious or cheated anyone. I'd break my wife's legs if I played against her, but I'd never cheat her." Priceless.
