Apologies, but might aswell keep the pic up, it's doing no harm :rolleyes:

Small world eh Seft? :P

And I would happily kiss Nemanja Vidic Monty, but I'm not too sure he'd be too pleased.

It's more of an "ooooo" as I think that was the defeat to Portsmouth in the FA Cup...

Haha, the temptation too much? Unfortunately I think that would have been season ended if we did something like that, although we were allowed to kick balls about in the warm-up before-hand. Went in net at the Stretford End once when the Keepers had gone back in but some of the subs had stayed out to shoot. Saved an Eagles and an Anderson shot, but wasn't getting near any of Rooney's!!!!

Great laugh though :)

*Anyway I think me and James have inadvertently turned this into a what your famous for rather than who famous you've met thread :o

Any other stories?

Re: Celebrities - Who You've Met And What They Were Like!

I met Tubes from Soccer AM. Got pictures and a video on my phone but lost the lead to put them on the computer, gonna get my brother to bring his next time he's here. It was at Old Trafford, a FA Cup semi final with Chelsea and Blackburn about 2 years ago now. The videos quite funny, I was pretty drunk and I just keep shouting Tubes at the top of my voice. I did ask him to spit me a rhyme but he didn't :(

I met Alan Shearer when I was about 5, he came to a Grimsby vs Oldham match at Blundell Park (Have no idea why he was there) and as my Dad worked for Grimsby I met him in the box he was in, he was my hero at the time too. Dont remember it really as I was too young but I got the picture in my room.

I also met the late Bobby Robson at Blundell Park. He was Newcastle manager at the time, and I just came back from selling programmes, on the way to the office and he was there. Really nice guy and signed mine and my mate's season tickets. I'm pretty sure he was scouting Titus Bramble as we were playing Ipswich, then a few weeks later Bramble signed for Newcastle. Terry Venables was also at Blundell Park in the same season (I think) but I only saw him and didnt actually speak to him.

Don't think I've met any other famous people, If I remember any more I'll post them.

Yep i met Juninho twice and got mud on his hands as i had just finished playing football at school (i shook his hands while my hands were still muddy)and then went up the the Riverside and he was at the club. Second time was 2004 when myself and my wife got pics with him :)

What is this about a wife? It is news to me Holty...

And hands up Juninho is very close to God, but not quite there. I have been in Gods presence, and chanted his name so loud that I got a wave as he arrived at Villa Park last season. You know who I'm talking about. Stand Up Martin Laursen :)

Under the heading of Aging '70s & '80s Rock Gods

I lost $115 to Gene Simmons playing backgammon on the red-eye between LA to NYC. Dude had the gall to take it from me too even knowing that I had just started playing...

It was a commercial flight that was delayed 15 minutes specifically for him to board the plane. He walked on the flight covered in Kiss gear. His hat was plastered in Kiss patches. His denim jacket had Kiss badges all over it. His belt had Kiss pins on it and even his carry-on was all Kiss-ed out. Gotta hand it to him... He's a marketing MACHINE !!!

Played backgammon for an hour / hour and a half and talked about everything from marketing energy drinks to NYC politics to Japanese restaurants. I think he probably bedded all the flight attendants;), but only after he asked them to separate all of the pistachios out from the mixed nuts.

Checking into the Four Seasons in Chicago with my gf at the time, and who is checking in at that same moment, none other than Ozzy.

You could tell something was going on because all of these black leather-clad people started surrounding us @ the front desk. There must have been some problem with the specifics of his reservation because one by one more of them started coming up to the desk and then things started to get heated.

Anyway after checking in, my girl and I decide to go up to our room. As we are about to get on the elevator, there's Ozzy all by himself standing against a wall far away from all the commotion. He has an unlit cigarette in his mouth fumbling through his pockets unsuccessfully searching for a lighter, and....he's standing directly under a big red No Smoking sign! Anyway, asks us not only for a light but also if we "wouldn't happen to know which room (he's) staying in"!

Well she wont be my wife for much longer (its a long story).

But you cant compare Laursen (who was half decent i admit) to Juninho (best footballer in the premiership to never play for a top 4 team)Mr Sutcliffe...what have you been sniffing?

I've met Tito Jackson!

I don't have a photo of him with me but I do have a photo of his autograph. Posted it on facebook!

Tito had come to my school and I was one of the lucky 20 to get chosen to meet him :D

He is a really down to earth person. Fame doesn't get to his head..thats for sure.

I have also met Pixie Lott. A few weeks after I met her...she got a number 1 in the charts with Mama Do B)
