Stan 'The Man' Signs for Superstar Speakers'
Updated: 2 days ago
STAN ‘THE MAN’ COLLYMORE never fitted the mould during an
action-packed career including spells with three of England’s European Champions,
now the former Nottingham Forest, Liverpool and Aston Villa striker is again promising something ‘completely different’ after becoming the latest signing for Superstar Speakers.
Stan is celebrating reaching 50 years of age by committing to Superstar Speakers for the next 12 months with plans – Covid permitting – of starting a nationwide speaking tour in September.
Visiting Superstar Speakers to put the finishing touches to the deal and personally sign memorabilia with our very own Mike West.

“When the guys from Superstar Speakers contacted me, we chatted through a few ideas including memorabilia. The memorabilia industry is huge now and there is also a lot of fake gear out there. I
remember going to New York in 1993-94 and getting baseball memorabilia – New York Yankees baseball bat and balls – and a Muhammad Ali signed glove and the reason I bought that
memorabilia and felt comfortable with it was it was authentic ‘in the presence of’ – someone could take a photo of you signing something.”
He is also impressed with the names Superstar Speakers have already worked with including Tyson Fury, Andy Cole and Trevor Francis.
“The level of names is top quality. If you’ve seen Andy Cole do it, then that’s good enough for me.”
Stan said he was pleased to take football punditry to a different level by allowing fans to communicate with him in real time through Twitter before, during and after matches and he has similar ground - breaking ideas about his public appearances with Superstar Speakers.
He envisages being part of a varied and exciting audio-visual presentation to give a closer insight into his career and life than ‘reeling off a dozen fisherman’s tales’ – plus providing a much-
needed post-Covid bonanza for venues from sports bars to four- figure capacity theatres.
“I’ve seen the way that after dinning speaking has gone into theatres, its now gone into full productions, its going into audio visuals, so you can narrate properly, and that’s something I want to do.
“If we can get interesting names that I can introduce and drag their stories out of them and my own, that will be wonderful once we get people back into theatres and venues - Post-Covid the appetite will be there to view football content in a completely different way.”
