Francesco Totti and his supermodel missus(Ilray Blasi) ate at the restaurant I worked at, also Thomas Buffel ate there years ago too.

For the Rangers fans, met Ally McCoist, Ian Durrant, Derek McInnes and big Jorg Albertz.

Oh saw Stephan Klos at a petrol station once too.

If I met anderson the first thing i'd do is get him on the bacon slicer, then learn him how to play the game.... Lol

I met Gourcuff at Montréal this summer at his hotel he was with the Bordeaux team. Great guy very humble. Football is not too popular here so it was easy to approach him

A few that most of the whipper-snappers on here probably won't know/care about:

Gary Shaw and my Dad played together all the way through to the point that Gary signed for the Villa. They have remained good friends since and we frequently used his executive box at Villa Park that he was given as a perk of his job as a local radio station football pundit. Lovely bloke that is doing well to overcome some very serious problems in his personal life.

On a flight back from a family holiday in Majorca in 1989 we were "lucky" enough to be travelling back with the Coventry City squad. Cyrille Regis was a wonderful bloke to meet and even though he was being pestered by me and my brother (aged 10 and 6 at the time) to sign an autograph on every scrap of paper we could find he was very patient and still managed to look after a very "tired" David Speedie until the flight boarded. My Dad took great delight that David Speedie wasn't actually tired. He was absolutely bladdered.

I also met Fabrizio Ravanelli in a clothes shop in Derby in 2001. Another true gent that was signing any autographs that he was asked for. I'm sure the piles of free designer clothing that he was given by the shop in question didn't hurt, though!

Talk with him while I was looking for the tees he wanted. I talked in english but he did'nt get it ! Just: "you're a beast" !

I met Clichy on the champs élysées too !

When I was young I talked on the phone with Thierry Henry, when he played for Monaco one of my cousin known him, because he lived in the parisian suburbs. I talked with him but I couldn't belive, him saying yes it's me thierry henry and my cousin. Before thatmy cousin maked a lot of joke with me. Years later He says that it really was Henry on the phone and that he didn't get his numbers lol !
