David Johnson (ex Ipsich and Forest striker) had a daughter who went to the same school as me so i spoke to him on a number of occasions, a real nice bloke. Also a real Forest legend.

My dad used to play football with Alex Mcleish when he was a kid. He also used to play drums in I think it was Jim Baxter's pub when he lived in Scotland aswell.

As for me, I don't know anyone, but living in Canada, there's no Canadian players worth knowing or even worth mentioning.

Played in a youth team with both Louie and Tom Soares (Barnet & Crystal Palace)

I don't know if he's in the game anymore, but Ryan Crockford was in the Reading squad in FM07. Went to school with him, and always thought he was a dick. He was released from Reading, but think he went to Woking or something.

He's recently been arrested for an unprovoked stabbing in Reading town centre.

He always was a **** [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

Someone stop this thread -- it's keeping me from playing FM08!

My old coach (who had a stint with Stockport County), now coaching locally in Western Australia, is good friends with a Lecaister City player from the 90s. Can't quite remember, but it might have been Steve Claridge.

I know Gavin McCann former Everton, Aston Villa and England and now plays for Bolton. He went to my high school, and sometimes comes and watches my village team play. His father used to work FOR my dad and his dad also managed my local village team. My friends did some work for Kiegan Parker at Blackpool and said his flat is full of pictures of men and it is believed he is a bender. My friend knows and lived near Colin Hendry, apparently his daughter is amazing! My friends father used to be a physio at Arsenal and he said Wenger is a complete smackhead! I also once met Valerie Singleton (she presented Blue Peter for years) at an airport in Barbados. She isn't a footballer, but still, it's a famous person.

John Owens, Liverpool youth coach (actually Acadamy Head), was my matchs teacher at school for a time.

During that time, he was Assistant Manager at Runcorn in the Conference.

He went on to be England non-league manager, England schoolboys manager, then on to Liverpool, running their acadamy.

Top bloke who always had to bring football into the math's lessons. Always had a "Shoot" annual on the blackboard with a picture of him marking Kenny Dalglish on the cover. He was a full back for Altrincham playing agains Liverpool in the FA Cup!

This question was posted by someone who gets 99% of their football knowledge from FM quite clearly!!

I chat with a few Chester City players in a queue in Tesco on a Friday night when they won at MK Dons the day after, last season. I don't know who they were but it was a good laugh... for all of 2-3 minutes we spoke!

Lewwis Spence was in my year at school, who plays for Palace. He's still a reserve player trying to break into the first team. Didn't like him much so I hope thats where he stays [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

Also, my mate's girlfriend's uncle/brother figure's family are related to Mark Kennedy! Plays for Palace too, so his family see more of him cause he's living in London. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
