It seems that Lester City has never once got into the UK’s top league until now. But the team’s new owner, a Thai millionaire, brought a number of monks from Thailand to the UK to bless, scatter ‘holy water’ on, and distribute ‘holy cloths’ to the team members and Bingo! the team’s fortunes have unexpectedly, some are saying miraculously, changed. And of course there is no other possible or plausible explanation for this reversal other than the monks and their water and cloths. It’s really good to see monks becoming more ‘socially engaged’.
