Will the mods be actually moderating the next one?

There were quite a lot of people that overstepped the line in the last thread both our fans and visitors.

What was wrong with the last thread? if people say idiotic things then they should expect to be called an idiot. That was about as heated as things got.

As I said in the last thread it was getting out of hand.

But if it's the way of the world these days then so be it.

Nice way for to get your subscription setup for the thread. Wouldn't want you to miss any racism?

I have met John Aldridge a few time, Ray Houghton a couple of times, steve staughton and Dennis Erwin in a bar in Dublin once (Bruxelles I think), Phil Babb, Razor Ruddock closed a car door on my hand in London about 2 years ago, it was my car and he ran past and shoved the door closed when I was getting in. He came back and apologised but I didn't feel he meant it. Also in a bar in Copenhagen a few years ago I met Alonso, Dudek, Riise and Aurielo.

My dad used to work for the FAI and we would go and watch training and could hang out in the bar so I met loads of players. Back in the 80's/90's more than half the Irish team was Liverpool players.

I have never once asked any of them for an autograph for some reason.

Edit - I realise Denis Erwin is not a past player but he was with a past player.

I might have told this story, but I once had a 'coaching session' with Ray Kennedy when I must have been about 9-10, at one of those Butlins/Pontins resorts.

I remember having my picture taken with him (me in an old school Ray 'my word' Wilkins Chelsea shirt) and he also signed me an autograph. I noticed, even at that age, that look on his face as he attempted to sign his own name, and the bizarre squiggle that made up the signature, which seemed to differ each time he signed it.

I think it was before he public ally announced his Parkinson's disease. Such a cruel disease I'll have to see if I still have it.

I've seen Julian Dicks at a autograph event, but that is hardly much to shout about.

Would love to meet Fowler, McManaman or Rushie!

I met Phil Neal on the hospitality as well - as you say he came across as a really nice bloke and I did change my opinion of him - having not really liked him before that for some reason...

I met Pat Crerand and Roy Evans when (rather obscurely) the offices of the recruitment consultancy I was working out sub-let space to a media company for a week.

Pat kept himself to himself but Roy Evans came round the office for a bit of banter with the Mancs.

IIRC Evans' PA was gorgeous (possibly his daugter?).

I met Ronaldo at a pub in Mottram St Andrews in Cheshire. Was the middle of the day, he had a white suit and t-shirt combo on that made him look a Portuguese Don Johnson.
