[OFF THE POST]The 10 staff members of a Manchester pub have changed their names to Wayne Rooney, bringing the number of bartenders around England to have changed their names in support of the United star's World Cup campaign  to more than 100. And the favorite name change for pub managers is ...

You guessed it, Fabio Capello, after England's Italian coach.

Katie Hyatt, one of the 10 staff members of the Shakespeare Inn to become Wayne Rooney, told the BBC she had not yet told her family but her boyfriend is plenty upset.

"I haven't told them yet, it's still a surprise," the 24-year-old said. "But my boyfriend is a bit shocked I'm now Wayne. He's a Liverpool fan, so he's been sleeping on the sofa in protest."

Clover Taverns, who owns various pubs around England, has promoted the name change campaign.

The new name of its managing director Andy Wilkinson? Sepp Blatter.
