      I went to  Dave Bowens testimonial match against the fantastic 1977 team on 22nd November 1977 at Northamptons  ground. I got on the pitch and tried to remove Phil Neal's shorts.
      I  was unsuccessful I'm sorry to say.  Don't know if he'll remember but I got just about a finger tip to them.  My claim to a brush with a Liverpool player.  My nephew was called on as a sub for Northampton Town.  I was thrilled but not as thrilled as seeing Kev and the lads up so close.

      I was on my way to the pictures with my girlfriend a few weeks back to go watch The Devil wears Prada. Anyone feel sorry for me? Anyway, me Dad dropped us off and away he went. Few mins down the road he went to top up on some petrol. Only to see Didi Hamman pull up in his Cobra! Me Dad got his fuel and went up to pay for it. Didi, was infront. And the woman on the till charged Didi for me Dads fuel along with the stuff Didi had bought and he was going f**king nuts! Me Dad stepped in an confessed it was his, so they started talking. I think he had just got back from Manchester they got beat 4-2 I think. Me Dad shook his hand, my two Brothers shook his hand and met him.
      While me, few mins down the road... dragged into a film which was complete bollocks.
      Only four words is appropriate.
      I was f**king gutted.

      Liverpool v Blackburn last season, I left the pub at my usual time of 2.55pm. I ran down the back of Rocky Road and turned across the back of the main stand. just as I got to the Shankley Gates I ran straight into some Knob who just jumped out of a black cab on the Annie Road. I looked up and was ready to kick off, When King Kenny smiled and just put his hand on my back and moved passed me!

      But the Funny Stories, belong to misses Crazy Horse! While walking along the Albert Dock I saw a black lad in a flash trackie walking to-wards us. I recognized his face but couldn't picture it. As he moved closer it was Nicolas Anekla (During his loan spell). I said to misses Crazy Horse, Thats Nicolas Anelka! Wow, she sounded really impressed!! until five minutes later when she said "Who's Nicolas Anleka?"!!!!

      That has to be the funniest if only for the comedy irony of you going to watch a sh*t film while tight arse Didi Hamann was nearly going to knock your old fella's lights out.   :laughing-smiley-014: :laughing-smiley-014: :laughing-smiley-014: :laughing-smiley-014: :laughing-smiley-014:

      as I live in southport and my daughter and a few mates live in formby I see players all the time I did the conga with paddy berger in a club called qdos in southport he was supposed to be injured at the time and I can assure you he wasnt that nite.

      And I once had a 10 minute chat with stevie g bout 6 years ago outside a club called bar non again in southport.

      My mate used to work delivering pizzas from a shop called antonios in formby next to freshfield station right on victoria road which is footballer paradise down there and I used to go with him for summit to do and he regularly delivered pizzas to neil ruddock and alan shearer when they used to live down there.

      there a plenty of other times as well but as you see living where i do its a regular occurence to see players knocking about the town.

      I've had a few good 'brushes' with the lads, a good few years ago I used to follow them all over. In 1992 I was lucky enough to travel to Moscow for the Cup Winners Cup match at Spartak Moscow (lost 4-2  Grobbelaar sent off, Burrows went in net) and the morning of the match I had a look round the Lenin Stadium, and suddenly all the team came out for a warm up. Took loads of piccys, and had some taken with Souness, Rob Jones, Michael Thomas and David James. Got to say what a good bunch of lads and all had time to speak.
      Another time was pre season in Germany, 1995 I think, I went out to watch them play SV Hamburg and Hertha Berlin (Fowler hat trick), and flew home with the whole team the next day. Had good chats with Barnes, Nicol and Paul Stewart.
      Happy days !!!!

      Bumped into a few players, just never really arsed about actually talking to them, although John Barnes was a complete legend when I saw him outside Lime Street waiting for a lift to go to Creamfields just after we won the treble in 2001. Me and a mate were waiting on the top deck of bus to go to creamfields when he collared him (he was a blue) and immediately began thumping on the window and singing his song, Digger grinned and gave us a big thumbs up.

      Remember seeing Peter Beardsley in town around 1988 with my brother, mum and nan round by the old Radio Merseyside studios in a ford Granada trying to do a three point turn, again it was just a simple alright peter lad, he pulled up gave us that stupid geordie grin of his and then gave us his autograph.

      Also remember seeing Razor Ruddock being harrassed by two wools outside the garage kop end while I was going down to get tickets for a particular game. Ended walking past as he jumped in his porsche (must of been before he crashed it)

      Although the funniest must of been when me ma took us down to melwood in 1984 to get some autographs, Rushie was injured at time, so I had to make do with Phil Neals and Alan Kennedy's (European legends both!!) our kid though who is three years younger so was only about four, clocks Sammy Lee and just runs over going nuts "look it's sammy lee!!!!" who then promptly picks up our kid and swings him round before giving him an autograph, must have made him feel f***in boss (sammy lee that is) have to add here that Kenny D stormed past in a slightly narked mood!!

      Seen Kenny years later shopping with his missus when I worked in Southport as well as Jocky Hansen, walked right past Captain Scarlet, hit me about a second later, turned round clocked how tall he was and it was indeed Jocky!!

      Also saw Barney Rubble attending a football tourney round ours (Huyton) just after Istanbul, was going to one of the elads to pick something up and he was getting out of his motor and walking down to Georgies playing fields in Huyton, must say a typical friendly geordie fella, who does loads for charity!!

      While waiting to go in to the Youth cup Semi Final at Anfield this year, we were walking past the players entrance when a car pulled up and out got Rafa and two minders, anyway just as they went passed, i pushed myself forward, put my hand out and said to Rafa, "pleased to meet you' he gave me a big smile and shook my hand, i never washed it for a week, made my night that did !!     ;D

      while i was at school i used to see Barnsey, Molby & Grobbs most mornings dropping their kids off.

      my cousin's little fella played junior footy with Jason McAteer's little brother & jason would regularly watch (he was a Trotters player at the time)

      went to uni at Salford & worked in an Irish bar in Manchester city centre that was regularly frequented by the dirty mancs, one Xmas, pretty much the whole first team (barring Cantona & Fergie) were in. while serving Steve Bruce a pint of Guinness, i took great plessure in telling him & Brian McClair exactly what i thought of them & their team!

      living in cumbria now, i rarely get to bump in to anyone but last year Hansen & Lawro were both in Morrisons in Penrith (officially the most expensive Morrisons in the country!)

      and i know for a fact that Gary Neville's mam DOES take it up the shi**er!

      my story involves the 2 liverpool legends that are phil babb and jason mcateer,its not in the slightest bit interesting but thats who i met,oh yeah,and gary kelly was there as well.
      it was around 96/97 when those 3 were affectionatly known as the 3 amigos in ireland ::) myself and a couple of mates were walking around dublins o connell street at about 2 or 3 in the morning,we were teenagers with nothing better to do ;D
      any how who stumbles towards us only the 3 amigos,well oiled i may add,i have to add that the 3 of them were really nice and they managed to take the various slaggings they got in good spirits,the spirits they had been drinking may have had something to do with that tho :food-smiley-005: :cool-smiley-027:
      just thinking about it now,they must have been over for an international,hardly great preperation for a match ::)

      Really good reading all this, meeting the players, I've been dead lucky in the past, as I used to go to a sports exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham and met Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Alan Hansen and Sammy Lee, we had just won the European Cup in 1978 and I had a photo of Kenny in bed with the Euro Cup which he signed for me, I will treasure that forever. Also met Kevin Keegan, he was dead nice and always had time for the kids.

      Met the players a few times in the Holiday Inn in Liverpool, sat at the bar and had a drink with Ian Rush.
      Also went to Bill Shankly's funeral.
      Best of all Jimmy Case took me out in his car.
      Met loads of the players at Melwood in the 1980's, got cine film (god, how old is that)  of them training, can you imagine being able to do that now.
