    Alright alright, what exactly is the critera "fan". No way is Micheal Jackson a Fulham fan! And if he is I vote to revoke him of the title.

    Give us a break... HOW convenient. Did the U-10's there visit his private box for 'cookies and milk'?

    Eric Clapton aint claimed as a Crew fan, yet he's been to at least one game {not counting the USMNT games}....

    So the criteria is rather loose then. Rather irresponsible of MAF to let him near those schoolboys. Wish I were kidding.

    If Tim Henman, Hugh Grant, Pierce Brosnan, Jamie T, and Georgie Thompson are legit thats pretty good.

    I know Hugh Grant is.

    On his website Pierce Brosnan say:
    Doesn't look like English to me! So, at best we can claim 1/3 of a 007.

    YOU, SoCalJoe, were supposed to have closed that deal for us. Lose Jessica's phone number?

    I know I wouldn't be typing random thoughts on this board if I did have her number :lol:

    Besides I thought PCB was in charge of stalking er notifying her of winning the title.

    On the unoffical stalk a celeb site (http://www.jessica-alba.com/plugins/custompages/Info.php) contact details were given as follows. Now, SoCalJoe/PBC, you have no excuses for not getting yourself a restraining order!

    If by any chance she mentions that she likes slightly overweight Englishman who are happy to freeload will you give her my number. Tx.

    Hey, I know who our two biggest celebrity fans are: American Mike and Chicago Tom! (Hey, they are celebrities around this site, at least)! :)

    Actually, our most famous celebrity fan is probably our chairman. Unfortunately, it's not because he owns Fulham. Between owning Harrod's, maybe the world's most famous department store, and the sad, unfortunate death of his son, he is known to friends of mine here in the States who otherwise know nothing about football or Fulham.

    Funny thing is I used to stand behind Sharon Duce when you could on the half way line, there was always a gang of celebs there and the Scotch would flow quite nicely.

    Standing behind Sharon Duce is a hard thing to forget, Martin.

    DOes Hugh being a FFC fan mean I have to watch Notting Hill and Bridget Jones's Diary? I'd rather have my eyes poked out with a sharp stick :x

    I use to stand on that half way line also! I remember an evening game where she, Ray Brookes and Chesney Hawkes were stood next to us. We sang "I am the one and only" all game.
