I asked Mrs Jargon to hold up a sign at a Beyonce concert.

"Oi Knowles. Can my husband have your knickers. Pardon?"


She's a good sport.

I blame David Moyes for this thread. There are literally no players in the squad to target so like an overpopulated community of rats with an insufficient food source they begin to eat each other. 😁

If I was a player I'd head to the disabled supporters section if I was going to give any of my kit away.
Its a lovely day thought but why would Jack Wilshere need your shirt?

Ooh you're hard.

I find the sign thing needy too, but it's still not as embarrassing as that post. What am I reading.
This really made me laugh.

Really seems to have gone up a notch post pandemic. Obviously comparing to pre pandemic not behind closed doors!

Think it's here to stay with social media, and the players & clubs pretty much promoting it too.

Call me a miserable b*stard but if I were a player I'd deliberately avoid those with signs, it is glorified begging.

Missed this thread first time around :lol:

I get the point and it's difficult to argue it, but to counter seeing some of the lil faces light up and reaction to getting a shirt is lovely, I have no idea though if they are the ones holding up the boards or not?

You're joking right? Her dad's been on the beg on Twitter for a few weeks now, they've already had a signed England shirt from him recently but that wasn't enough apparently and he kept on about getting another shirt. And yes, they took a sign on Wednesday.

Kids running onto the pitch is slowly becoming the new thing as well.

Don't really mind the signs, it's the mugging on Twitter that I can't stand - the dad of the girl that got the shirt that everyone thinks is lovely has a bunch of tweets of him and his lass spending four hours or more outside the training ground giving it the tears that Rice didn't notice them, directly Tweeting at him blah blah blah.

Like, there's the luck of getting a shirt at random when it's lobbed into the crowd. There's holding up a sign or writing a nice letter to the club (like, I'm pretty sure if you wrote a letter to the Rice c/o West Ham you'd get something back, unless the people in charge really are the dicks we all believe them to be). And then there's just making a nuisance of yourself. Restraining orders are a better thing to give that girl and her dad than a shirt.

Seriously considering tweeting the bloke asking which one he is going to auction for Isla's fund.

Genuinely, when I was looking for the bloke on Twitter - I don't have an account, it's a rancid hellpit that should be burnt to the ground - I found someone saying they'd spent a busy few weeks framing signed Rice shirts for sale, had one left but more coming, and dropping their email/mobile number underneath for sale.

First off, where are they getting multiple signed Rice shirts from, because I'm pretty sure they aren't coming from the man himself. Secondly, what sort of disgusting grifter makes money out of someone else's fame at the expense of fans of (presumably) their own football club?

You'd be surprised how many players do private signings for a few extra quid, even if they're earning **** loads.

Kids hang about the training ground with a shirt or shirts and ask players to sign same.
I actually think it is a brilliant idea. I'm sure they get around £100 for them (minus cost of shirt) so fair play to them. It's better than going out stealing or whatever...


Edit - then again, maybe they're doing it on behalf of others and only getting a fiver or tenner :shock:

We met a man and son with a give me you shirt sign at Spurs away. He said they’d already got several.
Players should ignore the signs and give them to kid in next seat.

Its not so much kids at Rush Green its mainly adults, a fair few player won't sign from them tbf. Many of them go around all the training grounds with a selection of just the numbers get them signed and then put them on the shirt.

I enjoyed it the other day when one asked Bowen to sign a number 1, we let Bowen pull away before pointing out there wasn't a 1 in the number 20.

There are also a lot of fakes online at the moment, I don't get why people don't just head down to Rush Green if the want a signed shirt or photo and asked for it to be personalised.

Also you can generally post something in to the club and they will get it signed and return it if you include a prepaid envelope, got a few birthday cards for my daughter over the years signed by the first team.
