Just Met Vieira, Toure, Gilberto, Bergy and Pires



I just got back from meeting a few arsenal players! they came to this hospital i used to be in..so i got invited to meet them! all of them were very kind and nice and took the time to sign anything and have a chat.

i Met..

Robert Pires - Very cool guy, said to him is he playing in the charity game later tonight and he said no, i asked because it said he was gonna play.

Kolo Toure - very funny and talkative, and was more then happy to sign my programe and home shirt.

Pascal cygan - again very nice guy and always smiling

Dennis Bergkamp - Very polite and kind, i said well done on scoring yesterday and he smiled and said thanks.

Patrick Vieira - Seemed the most popular guy there, again he was very cool and signed my stuff

Gilberto - smiled alot but looked like he didnt understand much

so yeah, i met them all and it was a great experience, i have my home shirt all signed by them and loads of hand signed photo's.

Cygan surprised me, I think everyone should give Gilberto a big, sympathetic 'Ahhhh', Kolo really doesn't surprise me, he looks like a really nice guy who's loving his chance at the big time

I went to 3 of the Junior Gunners partys, my first wos xmas 1997, so i met the players that went on to win the championship, it was a great day, and i even got on sky, ok so it was the back of my head as lee dixon signed my shirt but what the hell! :D


Mate of mine just spotted Freddie in Basewater in the Chinese he goes to a lot. He wasn't sure who the tall black guy next to him was but I think it might be Sol.

Couldn't be Henry as he was busy collecting his "award".

oh man sounds like the day of a lifetime. the only football star i have met is Dunga. Pretty big star but nothing would rival your day. I guess you could count 2 stars i have met if you include Wynton Rufer (greatest Oceania player ever) but he is not known outside of NZ and australia. Man wish i could meet some of the Arsenal guys one day though. NZ soccer has just received a big Nike sponsorship and they reckon they can get one of the world's top teams out here nex year sometime. i can only dream i guess.
