    Had a meeting with Steve Lomas, at the time youth team captain who had to see me for benefits as his contact had expired and Swales had shut up shop for them summer without sorting him out.

    He was technically a free agent and was really surprised I knew who he was etc.

    Can't believe I forgot this one.

    Was in San Carlo with the (now ex) girlfriend and my folks having tea, and Gabriel Jesus came in - was when he was injured in feb time in the 16/17 season - on crutches and sat at the table next to us. My dad was like a giddy schoolgirl.

    Also met Niall Quinn in the Wythenshawe Forum in 1993/4. He used to go there as part of his rehab after doing his cruciate.
