The ‘Up To 90’ podcast

Hosts Emma Doran (top left) and Julie Jay (right) meet football legend Paul McGrath (centre).

Emma writes:

We chat to Paul about everything from nudist resorts to what he really thinks of the Apres Match lads and if Roy Keane is in fact a prick. Finalising papers at the moment so Paul can officially become our Uncle….

      and like many of our finest was a little too fond of the sauce. Great to See him looking well. Legend.

          class act & he seems to have found some peace in the depths of Wexford. I’m spending a fair bit of time down there myself a little off the beaten track…highly recommended

            Endgame for me and himself is to end up down that neck of the woods or over in deepest, darkest Clare.

            I think he’d be happier in wexford, to be honest – closer to croker and all

            you’re truly special, millie – but, let’s face it, you’re no dean rock

            Be very careful of deepest darkest Clare, I spent a few years there and they .are. all .mad. Mad, I tells ya. Newmarket on Fergus=mad, Ennistymon=mad, Clarecastle= you get the drift.

            rural ireland, in general

            i spent almost a year in the middle of nowhere in the west

            no matter how hard you try to keep to yourself, they won’t let you. and, yes, more than half of them are full-on, proper bonkers.

            A cloud of mad gas, we called it. Scratch the surface and pure mad seeps out.

    He’s a great man and soccer talent. When England didn’t qualify for the ’94 World Cup I was over there and drumming up support for the Irish team. Back home in suburban Dublin, a neighbour was busy knitting stuffed woollen versions of the Irish squad before the tournament so I bought up some Paul McGrath’s and sold them to Aston Villa fans o’er yonder at £10 each; in the spirit of ‘adopt a footballer’, therefore funding my pub visits and beer rounds for my English friends attending the Irish matches. They’re all pretty dusty now, but I still have mine hanging up proud.

    Met the chap once he was in the midst of an early media spotlighted crisis…
    Absolute gent he had a PA to do in a pub but was cool as a cucumber and stone cold sober.
    But so so pleasant. Great to see him in such fine form then and now

      comments like that used to earn me a stint in moderation

      (mended my ways, though, didn’t i, bodgie?)

        NICE NORKS!
        I can say that as it’s just a passing comment. Not sexualising her, or her nice norks.
