    Help Needed For An Unusual Request


    0 Not allowed!
    Good people! My grandson will be celebrating his tenth birthday in the summer and one of the presents that he would love is an autographed No.19 shirt signed, obviously, by the great man himself Jose Izquierdo. Now I understand there is a wonderful and worthy auction in place at present for Jose's shirt from the West Ham game - unfortunately I am not in a position to match those noble bids.

    I am more than willing to purchase a shirt and have 19 and Jose's name printed on the back. I am also willing to contribute a sum to charity to have it autographed. I have contacted the club shop to ask if this suggestion is feasible. The advice given was basically to way lay Jose in the car park and blag his autograph there - something I'm not altogether happy with.

    So, any practical suggestions from you concerning this request would be gratefully welcome. Many cheers and thanks.

      The car park request isn’t a bad idea. Maybe after a thumping win when he’s got a hatrick.

      If you do away games the coach always arrives 1h 30 before kick off and the players often sign bits and pose for photos (less so since PL though)

      Good luck
      Don't take offence. I'm normally ruder than this.

      Unsurprisingly when the jnr's have bumped into players around the AMEX they have been more than happy to pose, sign and generally be all round lovely chaps.

      There are many fans that wait for the players to come out after a game and the players are very happy to do photographs and autographs, all done as the players go to their cars. Go for it and maybe take your grandson to get up close to his heros.
      When you are out and about, if you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.

      Met the players many times last season as they walk from the east stand exit down to their car park. Barriers are put up and some players do the headphones thing and ignore the fans but others have all the time it takes to sign items.
      Have a pen ready and also have the shirt on your son so they know it is genuine rather than some bloke after an ebay profit.

      Buy him the shirt and take him to the car park after the match to meet José and the other players. Might not be glamorous but would be far more exciting getting to meet the players and have them sign the shirt than just having the signature.

      Lovely idea regardless and I'm sure he'll appreciate it either way!

      I don't know if Jose has a twitter account, but you could try contacting him directly there if he has, or another player and ask them to ask him, or email Mr. Barber, he may have a better suggestion for you as to how to go about it. Depending on when in the summer you need the shirt by, there could be planned signing days at the club shop where a few players are there to do autographs, or an open training session, the Junior seagulls sometimes have meet the players get togethers I think? Mr. Barber will have more knowledge of these than the club shop.

      This - except... rather than putting the shirt on your son, put it on a buxom lady known to you and ask the player to sign it "on the chest". Bound to work.

      These are all better suggestions than the increasingly tedious "XXX can i have your shirt please" signs that seem to be cropping up at every stadium now.
      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      Looks a pretty easy 'trace', who's to know?
