I followed Liverpool when I was very young and also cried when Dave Beasent saved John Aldridges penalty,about 25 years later I bumped into Beasent at a local bar where I live as he plays golf here and I got to tell him that in person,top bloke by the way.

I thought this was going to be like the George Reilly story where he was working on a building site after he'd retired and a Plymouth fan punched him because he scored the goal that beat them in the FA Cup semi final.

Two stick out for me, although was definitely hooked before either. Crying like a baby when Michael Thomas scored for Arsenal to decide the title as a 6 year old on holiday in Bournemouth.  And being at the old meadow Park when not much older and exasperating a then city player (no idea who other than he had a perm) as I attempted and failed to throw him the ball to take a quick throw in.
