    Paul McGrath turns 60 today. What a legend.

    I was at his international debut in Dalyer in 1985 v Italy. The crowd was so huge (Italy were world champions at the time) that the Gardai ordered the gates to be opened to help with congestion.

    We arrived at the ground and walked straight in!

    Heard this one earlier today ................."Virgil Van Dijk wears Paul McGrath pyjamas!!"

    It's hard to argue that.

    Happy birthday Paul.

    Read his book in one day after getting it for Christmas many years ago.

    Met him in Dublin in early 00s in Q Bar. He had a few jars on him and had two good looking women hanging out of him. Spent about an hour chatting to us. You would thought this guy was living the life... a few weeks later there was story about his passed out in Grafton St in middle of the night and in general his life was a mess.

    Saw him playing for Villa in a friendly at Tolka park must have been against Shels anyway he was best player on the pitch, class act, when I read his book turned out he was half cut on the pitch! With Roy he's the best I've ever seen live in an Irish jersey
