Joe Cole's early school years
Star of Chelsea & England, but perhaps not in the classroom
Location: Masbro Rd, Marylebone, W14 0LT
Description: Joseph John 'Joe' Cole is not only a football player who currently plays for Chelsea and England but was also... apparently...a child prodigy who received national media attention as a schoolboy when he famously scored 7 of the 8 goals for the England youth team playing against Spain - a product of the famed West Ham United youth system.
Cole was born in Paddington, London and was to become touted as the hottest prospect in English football with Manchester United reportedly offering to pay 10 million for his services as a 16-year-old.
Not sure as to the truth in that - but he did attended this school in West London, 'St Mary's Primary School'.
It's certainly a million miles away from his Surrey mansion...what a guy!
