Who would you like to see at Sportsmania 3?


Recommended Posts

;)

 

I thought that I would start a thread off to see who you would like to see at Sportsmania 3 and who you think are realistic guests?

 

The kind of guests that would attract me to Sportsmania 3 are:

 

- Pele - although maybe not realistic!

 

- Peter Schmeichel

 

- Jimmy White

 

- Ronnie O'Sullivan

 

Who would everyone else like to see?

Aside from the 66 squad members I've alreay mentioned, I'd say any ex Liverpool players, any continental footballers e.g. players from the Milan side of the late 80s/early 90s or any of the Italia 90 England squad.

Would sports presenters be acceptable, if so I wouldn't mind a photo with Suzi Perry. :blush:

 

Sticking with the biking theme, Valentino Rossi, although perhaps impractibable, would be amazing. On the other hand James Toseland, being British, may be more available.

I know next to nothing (in fact I know less than that!) about motor sport in general and certainly not biking so don't shoot me down in flames here but I think Carl Fogartty (or however you spell it!) has been known to do signings before, not sure if he woul be of interest though.

I agree Pele would be an amazing guest to have. He could even be a main guest for Autographica or Collectormania, not just Sportsmania.

 

I went to his book signing in Coventry a couple of years ago and people were queueing from 4am to meet him.

 

It would probably cost a lot to get him over but if the entrance fee was increased slightly I am sure the costs could be recovered, every football fan in the country would surely want to meet him.

 

However, I have heard he has signed a contract with A1 Sporting Speakers to only sign their merchandise

http://www.a1sportingspeakers.com/signing_sessions.php

but I dont know how long the contract is for.

I'm not sure how much of a barrier that would be. I could be wrong but I think A1 sporting speakers supply most if not all the guests for Sportsmania. Certainly a good proportion of the guests are on their books and they maintain quite a visible presence at the show.

 

I suspect though someone like Pele, if he agreed to do a public signing at all would probably be better suited to a more controlled environment like an Autographica.

Pele is in the UK next week, doing a charity footy match at Stoke City, with Gordon Banks, maybe he would be encouraged to do a signing if it was for charity?

 

 

Also, with regard to another post about Bobby Charlton, I have heard a rumour he refuses to sign photos that have been signed by the other '66 players, he doesnt want to be associated with it, thats why he doesnt attend the reunion evenings and signings.

 

Beckenbauer, Cruyff and Eusebio would be great ones to see...

Don't know how many of you folks are signed up to the A1 Sporting Collectables newsletter, but the last one had an offer to meet Pele this Monday.

A limited number of people will have their photo taken with Pele & also receive a shirt signed by the footballing legend.

All for a reasonably priced £3000 per couple!

I'd love to meet the guy, but it would have to be a little closer to my working class budget.

I'm disturbingly middle class and I couldn't afford that!
