    My first live match:
    January 1990 Arsenal 1 Sp**s 0 Had my name up on the scoreboard because it was my birthday! Very exciting at 12 years old!

    My first favourite player:
    David Rocastle - remember writing a letter to him at school. We all had to write one to our hero. Always disappointed he didn't wirte back.

    My first meeting with an Arsenal player:
    Never met one.

    My first away game:
    October 1998 Derby County 1 Arsenal 2 at Pride Park Worthington Cup whilst working in Derby. Friend at work got me and my Gooner mate tickets through his Derby membership, nice eh? To add to the midlanders' hospitality, they even scored a goal for us.

    My first shirt:
    2002 home shirt. You may think that's late compared to my others, but it was preceded by my pride and joy of full Arsenal tracksuit for Christmas in 1989, along with all the usual paraphanalia of pencil cases, shinpads, lunchboxes, bootbags etc when I was growing up.

    My first almost-wet-my-pants exciting signing:
    Reading in the paper that Bruce Rioch had signed Dennis Bergkamp, then running to school to talk about it with the other Arsenal fans!

    Yup, I think it's called All Sports- do you know the one I mean?

    Lewd? Who is this Lewd that you speak of? :shock: :lol:
    Okay, just for you Beanz, I'm sure I've told this story a few time here, so I'll do it differently:

    Int: McDonalds Restaurant (on the Strand, London)
    Night, it's around 3.30am

    We can see in a crowded, rowdy restaurant- restaurant ha!- a dark, good looking invidual, clearly inebriated standing with a couple of friends, one is ginger (also drunk), the other is slim and wears his hair slightly longer than the others (sober). The three seem to be observing the rest of the restaurant..

    Luke (the slim one): Ummmmmm, nah I can't see anyone. Wait a minute!
    OTIL (the dark, good looking one :wink: ) What?
    Luke: Over there, look!
    OTIL: Who?
    Luke: Edu
    OTIL: Edu? Yeah, that's not bad..
    LUke: And next to him, that guy looks like Gilberto
    OTIL: (laughs)
    Luke: Paul, that is Edu and Gilberto
    OTIL: No, no way!
    Luke: Seriously, go over.
    OTIL: Nah, it can't be.
    Luke: I'm telling you it is!
    OTIL: (to the ginger one, Kevin) Is it?
    Kev: Yeah, I think so.
    LUke: You should go over there man
    OTIL: OK then

    (walks over to where our two brazilian heroes are sat eating with a couple of friends)

    OTIL: What the f'ck are you two doing in McDonalds at this time of night?
    (Gilberto just looks down at his chips)
    Edu: Well, we are normal people, no?
    OTIL: (laughs) Yeah, fair point!
    (Edu smiles)
    OTIL: Well, listen, make sure you win the League this season, yeah?
    Edu: We'll try.
    OTIL: Ok, see ya

    And that was it.

    OOps, sorry about mixing you and lewdikris up :oops:
    That's an interesting story, I bet they went to Mc D's so late/early to avoid being caught eating junkfood, something I'm sure Le Boss would'nt approve of. :mrgreen:

    I also have seen Edu, wondering around oxford street.

    He seems like a very, very down to earth guy. completely different to the rest of the footballing 'jetsetters'

    Have a look at his website

    family photos, talks about what he does in his private life etc. Very refreshing to see a football 'star' like that.

    The phrase "nice to see he's got his feet on the ground" is very overused (especially on this forum) but with Edu it is certainly true.

    S'alright Beany! :lol:

    Yeah, it was pretty funny to see them there, I think it might even have been after the Blackburn game where Edu scored at both ends
