Disclaimer; Brief back story imminent...

Having been born in Nottingham, to parents from Gorton area, we moved to the US when I was 10. We used to come back every year, but since I've been fending for myself, I get back once every 2 years to see City. I'm 24 now, and as I'm pretty shit (despite being in love with) football and of course City, I found my athletic fortitude in swimming, and have been ranked nationally in the US. I now coach for a premier swim club in the states.

OK, having got that out of way, I was coaching the other day, when a 16 year old swimmer whom I do not personally coach yelled at me across the pool deck. It was the day of the Juventus match, so I was naturally wearing my City shirt.
He yelled, "Hey, you're the English coach right? You're a City fan?"
Me, "City till I die."
He replies, "My godfather is Garry Cook."
I say, "... You're fucking joking."
He says, " Yeah dude, he married my dad's cousin" (or some shit like that).

He has gone on to bring photos of him and Cook and signed Uwe Rosler memorabilia to practice since.


Anyway, I live in North Carolina, where if anyone happens to know about football it pertains to the scum, Arsenal, Chelsea, or Liverpool (well... my room mate is scouse... but he's a Tranmere fan... which deserves some credit in itself). So you can imagine my surprise to hear someone know Gary Cook's name, let alone be his fucking godson. I will be ITK shortly! Haha!

Just thought I'd share.

If I were a scouser I'd support Tranmere!

I know about that FFS ,a Teves or Toure signed shirt or piccy more apt ,just seems a little odd he gives him a Rosler item when GC still probably doesn't know fu** all about him.With all these players here now you think something a little bit more up to date for a sixteen year old
