    Ryan Shotton at Stoke is a lad I spent a few years of high school playing against where he was a striker for his school side and I was in defence. In year 11 went for a sliding tackle on him, got the ball off him and as he carried on he stood on the side of my knee and ended my playing days lol.

    Also Ryan Connor and Andrew Nicholls also at Stoke in the youth team, lads a couple years younger than me, went the same highschool, live just round the corner and have both been mates of my brother in the past and have been in my house a fair few times etc.

    My cousin is a youth player at Havant & Waterlooville, he isn't in the game but had his ankle snapped courtesy of Claus Lundekvam last season lol.

    I went to primary School and was pretty close to West Brom youngster Chris Wood. Cameron Lindsay the young Blackburn lad is my Cousins best mate so I played Football with him a few times. My claim to fame. Both have played in the Premier League.

    Before FM (on Champ Man) one of my friends played for Great Yarmouth so I signed him for my Spurs team and used him as sub now and again. About 2 months later he got unhappy about not being a first team regular.....talk about ungrateful!!!

    I've got like ten friends that you can find in the Norwegian small clubs Stålkameratene, Bossmo & Ytteren and Mo IL.

    I also know a guy named Torstein Schanche (previously in Tromsø, now on free transfer) and Jacob Falch-Meidell (in Molde's U19 department, quite the talent on this year's version actually).

    Someone I play football with (not a pro btw) used to be Harry Redknapp's postman. Also, my little sister was at school with Jamie Redknapp's nephew Joe (son of Mark Redknapp).

    This is all true, and not a wind up like some of these are. I live in Bournemouth, a place where the Redknapp's have some roots after Harry's spell at the club (he lives in Sandbanks just round the corner), and owns a restaurant just round the corner from my old house.

    FACT!!!

    I used to sign my mate who was in the game when we were both 16. He was in the Crewe youth squad and I would always buy him, even if his stats were crap! And Keith Lowe also went to the same school, who came through The Wolves ranks. (I was also friends with a friend of Danny Guthrie, but that doesn't count )

    I knew Daniel Leinar, who plays for Motala AIF in Sweden, when I was younger. His then-girlfriend was in my class, and me and Daniel were out partying together a few times. Haven't seen him for about 12 years though.

    And then of course we have Kim Källström who plays for Lyon, he was never really a friend of mine, but we were acquainted. He knew some of my mates when we were around 16 and I met him a couple of times. Already then it was clear that he would become a great footballer.

    Keith Lowe

    Becoming a good full back for us (Hereford) after a poor start to the season. Really improving and putting in some very good performances and even scored his first goal the other day.

    Half my school team are in the game; I'm the only one who turned (semi) pro who didn't ever make the game. Damn you SI!

    But look the following up, they've all been in previous versions for sure, don't have FM10 yet, so haven't looked them up myself:

    Dwight Ciampoli - was at Oxford
    Richard Claydon - Same, went to Oxford City briefly, now plays for Wantage.
    Mark Brind - Was at Wycombe, now plays in New Zealand.

    Aside from my school team, I'm friends with a lot of the Oxford team and a few ex-Oxford players. Joey Beauchamp, king of drink driving and ****ing his money away at the dog track as well as a former Premiership left-winger, is family.

    I have, at various stages, come across the likes of Matt Taylor of Bolton fame and Dexter Blackstock, against whom I played a few times as a youngster. I was actually on trial with him at Oxford. I also played at the same tournament, though we weren't in the same age group, as Theo Walcott.

    I'm Korean and I work at phone dealership in Sydney. The Sydney FC fullback, his name evades me, comes to our store and I've talked to him a couple of times. Wouldn't say he is a mate of mine though ^^

    I play with some ex K-League guys on the weekend in a competition, not on my team though and pretty much they weren't superstars but they still a level above most of us ^^

    Anyone played seroiusly against a superstar before?

    As a youngster I played against Colo Halit who is in the game and plays for Dalkurd in the Swedish League 1 equivalent. Back when I played him he was 1000 times better than any other player our age in the area. He had trials for Man U and Reading, turned pro briefly with Molde in Norway but ended up in the Swedish lower divisions. Shame really because we all thought that he would turn out class.

    The same with me and my mate. He was miles better than anyone else at school (we were alright too), and many people had trials at local teams, but it was clear to us that he would make it. And it was kinda sad to hear that they let him go. He then played a bit for smaller local teams before quitting altogether

    Yeah Colo was immense back when we played against him. I saw him play in a friendly for his then team (Brage) against Reading in Sweden and he ran the show. He went on to have a trial but for some reason it didnt work out. He still has a small chance but he is 23 now and did his knee ligaments back in the spring. I for one hope he goes pro coz I can then say "I played against him"

    My cousin's mate is Connor something, I'm not sure about his name, but he plays for Chesterfield and is one of three goalkeepers in the first team and he is quite young.
    Also Fabian Delph and Josh Falkingham came to my Football Presentation last May and that is quite impressive as we are quite a small club.
    Finally my best friend's ex girlfriend, was Aidy Boothroyds niece, and you may know his brother as he owns Steves Carpets .

    Since this old thread has got a bumping and been revived today, I'd like to add a suggestion.

    I don't know anyone in the database, but I think it would add interest if people were to comment on the daabase's attributes, personality descriptions etc. E.g. do you think your mate is better or worse than the game rates him? Does the game rate him 'determined' when you think he's a lazy git etc.

    Not a "mate" by any stretch of the imagination, but I knew someone at school who supposedly was going off to join West Ham's youth academy, but this was after I'd moved to another school on the other side of the country, so I don't know if he ever did it (and subsequently made it). For the past few versions I've wanted to see if he's in the game, but rather embarrassingly over the course of the past six and a half years, I've forgotten what his surname is so I can't look him up (all I remember is that his first name's John, he's Scottish and he'll be 23 by now...which doesn't narrow it down all that much )

    I went to school with a lad called Tam Makindawire (sp). He was a few years below me, ended up on the books of West Brom, a few moves later I heard of him at Hereford, not sure where he at now. At school he was an amazing player.

    Just shows what poor training facilities can do for ya.

    Even though I didnt really know him that well, I went to the same school as a guy called Lewis Marr who used to be in the Newcastle youth team a few years back. Dunno if he is still in there though.

    My mate Andy Alvarez plays for Swan SC in Western Australian Amateur Leagues, and he was in FM2009. I haven’t played an Australian save in FM2010 yet, but I always sign him as he is good young potential for the Glory.

    Well.. My Lower School teacher's Husbands Brother is Andy Johnson of Fulham.
    Other than that I'm not sure but as i'm 13 I don't have any mates obviously who could be in the game although a few friends of mine play for Youth teams. Two of my mates play for Rushden & Diamonds, My friend Ben Tilney plays for MK Dons youth and I dub him to become a great player in the future and then another of my mates plays for Luton youth I think.. :|

    Not signed him but reffed him in real life and know him from uni: Mitchell Bailey at Bamber Bridge. Played for Huddersfield against Chelsea in the cup a few years back. Got a couple good stories about Lampard.

    Distant relative to Craig Moore and as Im living in Australia players Ive met/been at school with aren't much to brag about.

    My Dad and Mums old mates are in the game as coaches. Only relative I can think of atm is my Dads cousin, Ian Scanlon, but he retired a while back.

    He's good for the lower league clubs not really good for big teams though.

    Your mate is a 20 year old free agent on my game :| He's actually pretty good though.

    I don't know anybody who is in the game but HOPEFULLY I will be in the next version.

    I currently play for Clevedon United who are playable with the "patch" which adds all english clubs down to level 10, although not with real players.

    I am a 19 year old Goalkeeper who currently plays first choice for Clevedon United.
    Quite frankly, I am too old really to start touting myself to clubs as most of they are looking for younger talent but hopefully I can get a contract somewhere.

    I am in the process of trying to get trials at any club I can and only have 2 set up so far.

    The first is with Bristol Rovers in March, helped by the fact that I know one of their coaches!
    The second is with Swindon Town.

    I highly doubt that I will get anything solid out of it although the Rovers coach I know has said that they are taking on some young players on Part-time contracts at the moment, to have a proper look at them, and I hope to get that chance to train for a decent period of time in a proper coaching setup.

    He ain't too bad. Could be a good lower league target man. Would be great if he was a bit taller though!

    One of my cousin's mates is on the game.

    Loaned him on my Stoke Bishop game from Huddersfield (where he is at) in the Bristol Downs League Division Four. Also loaned a Liverpool Reserves striker on loan. The fans liked my cousin's mate compared to the Liverpool Reserves player. Thought that was quite funny.

    Gods honest truth here..
    met a lad at uni who is best mates with tom ince, paul ince's son. He's invited me to toms 19th bday party where a lot of the liverpool reserves are going to be. As well as this, toms godfather is ryan giggs so he is also going to be there. Just to top it off, tom is currently seeing rochelle from the saturdays so they are all going as well..going to be a good night!

    'Oliver Norwood' He's been on the past few FM's.

    He actually looks like a good promsing player on Fm10, Nice to see some one from Burnley looking good

    Edit: Of course there is Jay Rodriguez who is from Burnley but i don't know him
    I knew a few youth team players on old CM/FM's but they wern't very good.

    My mate Crossley, He his still on the game and as been on it since FM07 i think.
    He was a goalkeeper for Burnley a couple of year back and his still on the game as a free agent.

    Played sunday league football with him for about 4 years untill he left at the end of last season.
    He also played for a Saturday team for a couple of years, Read or somthing.

    He played in defense for our Sunday team haha, Used to always go out with him at weekends before he left,
    Thats probably why he could'nt find another team lol, Very sound lad though.

    Same birthday as me!

    Scummer though
