I did some work for David Dunn, (my mate works as first team physio at B'ham city), it was some retouching on a few photographs. He never paid for the work or even made a gesture to cover the time spent on it.

Still got his mobile number so maybe blackmail is on the cards?!

1. Thorstein Schanche. Went to the same school.
He's supposed to be at Tromsø in the Norwegian Premier, but for some reason he's free transferred.

2. Most of the players on my local team.

3. Ali Karan, a youth player at Genclerbirligi who used to play for our fiercest rivals, Mo IL.

Not really no.

I have a mate that lives on the same street as Rafa Benitez and another that lives on the same street as Lee Miller.

Also, I did stay at Peter Schmeichel's house one night about 11 years ago when I was 5/6. My mum and his wife worked together and were friends and we were invited to stay over after a barbecue. None of my mates believe me though.

Joost de Graas, NEC under 19s (Holland) Lives in my neighborhood, used to be a good friend of me, don't speak to him nowadays though.

That's about the only player from FM I know, although I sometimes see some Vitesse players when I'm at work (Theo Janssen) or when I'm going out (Remco vd Schaaf), but that's about it.

Blue Flag
19-11-2007, 08:37
I know a few. For almost all of them i would say the stats are pretty accurate.

My sister has been going out with a footballer and the first thing I did was check his FM stats out - my sister then got excited about how much the game said he earnt (turned out he doesn't earn that much).

I was with a few pro clubs as a schoolboy then one year as an apprentice but this was in 1998 so I obvisley wasn't ever on any FM/CM game. Now a days with all the youth players on I probably would have been, which makes me gutted.

Being on an FM game would have been my greatest footballing achievement ever.

No way, are you from Accrington? My sister's friend is accountant or something similar for Stanley so I have met a couple of the players. The best story is when Rommy Boco signed for Accrington from France and had to live in Rob's (my sister's friend) spare room for about 3 months, then he had to move into Rob's parent's house because Rob's girlfriend had a baby.

I also played football against a player who now plays for Blackburn reserves, Keith Barker. Put three past my primary school team when I was marking him.

I get my haircut at the same place as Cesc Fabregas. I love it as I'm a gooner. Denilson also lives up my road, met him a few times, pretty nice bloke although he's not too good at football. Get quite a lot of Arsenal players near me, pretty close to the training ground. Also met Thierry Henry at my gym before he moved to Spain and quite a lot of the Arsenal first team and young boys go gym aswell. Christ I've met a few!

Me best mate was Jason Koumas before I left the country. I played with him and Steven Gerrard in the Eastham League on the Wirral for a team called Heygarth. Well, I played with Gerrard twice because he was mostly training with Liverpool, but I played with Jason for years at school. We used to bunk school and play snooker.

I drank with plenty of the Tranmere lads from Jason's Tranmere days. Alan Mahon is a complete wanka. He used to finish a drink, throw the glass in the air, and try and control it on his foot. Total flash wanka. Those lads used to get trolleyed on a Wednesday night with training the next day.

I don't know him but he plays for a team in Iceland called Grindav*k, which just go promoted from the 1.division. He isn't even a regular there last time I checked!

Some might also remember Andri Sigþórsson who was a legend on one of the CM games, think it was 99/00. He retired a few years ago quite young because of injury. He was actually a fairly promising player and played in Norway and Austria.

His younger brother, 17 year old Kolbeinn Sigþórsson, however is really talented. He plays for AZ Alkmaar in Holland. He was the top scorer in the qualifying rounds of last years U-17 Euro Qualifiers and has been offered trials all around Europe.
