    living in London Colney I've seen most of the Arsenal players over the past 15 years (mostly driving through towards the training ground) but did manage to get autographs from quite a few over the years, however my favourite moment was giving Arsene Wenger 5p in what was Dillons when I was 10, good times!

    p.s. i want that 5p back + interest

    I met quite a few England U-21's when I was doing work experience in a fancy hotel in Derby (they had a friendly at Pride Park) - saw Agbonlahor, Milner, Walcott and a few others.
    Also met Chris Kamara at an airport in Tenerife.
    By far my favourite meeting though was Derby defender Jason Shackell :love: (no homo).

    I met Dirk Kuyt when I had some form of executive seating for Liverpool Vs Man Utd. It was on behalf of Carling and for Liverpool supporters, but I went in a Man Utd shirt underneath my suit, and was in a neutral box.

    He came out after the match in the lobby and I let him know who I supported, good guy. Very humble and charitable too. I also spoke with Kenny Dalglish back then, along with Ian Rush and Grobberlear who were at the lounge at HT. The former two have a massive passion for their club which is very respectable, although I felt very awkward talking about my hopes for Man Utd that season.
