WOW! – 1st February 1999

Monday 1st WOW! I saw all the Man Utd players today. I went to The Cliff training ground with Freda, her mum and Bronwen Groves. It was so cool.

Just as we got there, they were all finishing training. I was actually convinced that they wouldn’t be there but they all were and there weren’t many people watching. I got most of their autographs and some of the fit youth players’ autographs too.

I can’t believe my camera battery ran out though! I got some photos and got really close to the players. Most stopped as they were going out of the car park in their big, flash Mercs, BMWs, 4x4s, Ferraris, Jags etc. and signed through open windows but some, including David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Jaap Stam, came over to us. It was so good!

[Here I am in my Man Utd-filled room.]

The autographs I got were from:-

Peter Schmeichel
Jaap Stam
Ryan Giggs
David Beckham
Roy Keane
Denis Irwin
Dwight Yorke
David May
Andy Cole
Phil Mulryne
Michael Clegg
Wes Brown
Phil Neville
Alex Ferguson

Ronny Johnsen

And about 5 of the youth players. They’re all in a little, clear Paperchase book thingy. [I must still have it somewhere what with my hoarding habits. I’ll have to try and find it.] WOW! I still can’t quite believe it. Certain people in school are going to be so jealous!

Well, I was brought back down to Earth as soon as I came home by Abby telling me that Paul Nutt phoned while I wasn’t in and he said he was going to phone back later. Jacqueline had given him my number and she and Abby said he was going to ask me out or summit so I had to phone him to set him straight about me not liking him.

Well, I’m sure you can imagine my reaction. Basically, I didn’t want to. Not because I like him but because it’d have been embarrassing and, knowing me from past experiences (e.g. Ralph), I’d only have ended up panicking and hurting his feelings or summit.

So, I begged and pleaded with Jacqueline to do it and eventually she said she would. The wimp’s way out, I know, but hopefully it’s worked. Abby went round to Jac’s house today so they could plan what to say. They did phone and ended up telling him that I really liked someone else in school but I wouldn’t tell them who.

Oh yes, I’ve got school to look forward to tomorrow. NOT! Hayley’s on the field trip with Geography so I’m stuck with the bitchy lot. Oh well, I guess I’ll either have to go and talk to someone else or just put up with it.
