(thanks to burn_so_pretty for reminding me about this community!)

Was round at thiss fella's house last week.

Barry Nicholson, who played for Rangers, Dunfermline, and now plays for Aberdeen. Although only playin for Aberdeen, i was kinda scared to sit on the lads sofa, or look for a mug in the kitchen to get masel a cup of tea!!

Had a discussion wi zander_1986 the other day, and i came to the conclusion that his various awards (SPL Player of the month, Tennents Scottish cup final awards, Scotland cap (singular!!) etc etc) would only fill about 2 carrier bags. But still, he played with some of the Rangers greats!

Anyone been to the house of anyone more famous?! :oD

I take it that emoticon is meant to signify a tongue in cheek.

I have not only been to the house of someone more famous (aint you been to Buck House?) I have also been in the house of a more famous footballer. I used to go in to the house of Carl Leaburn, formerly of Charlton Athletic Football Club.

Acutally, now we're on the subject, my mums family were best friends with Jock Wallace. They were next door neighbours. He's dead just over ten years now. Wish i'd met the guy.

when i was a kid a guy turned up at my grannys house to buy a load of old bricks....from an out building that had been taken down...everyone recognised him and my mum thought he was a brother of a friend of ours, it turned out to be the Ipswich Town player Paul Mariner.
Its become one of those funny family storys that gets told every so often.

I guess thats kind of a crummy footballer story but this is rural suffolk after all.

I live in Canada so you don't really encounter much 'soccer stars' or have the opportunity to enter their homes~

Though I have been to the house of someone more famous than him but he was a Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson He was pretty fast but he is most famous for being disqualified from the Olympics for doping.
