Apologies for the October break in service.
The fine red wine of 2009 has been having a deleterious effect on the old man. It required a Wengeresque regime importing cheap young green grapes, supplemented by lashings of Vitamin B Compound and the occasional Catalan quaff during a friendly in Alghero, before returning him to agreeable bog standard beers and stouts. He is finishing his dinners again, picking winners and reminiscing about growing up in Cork with Donal Leahy of Evergreen United.
I managed to re read Paul McGrath's "Back from the Brink" during this time. The book was given to me old china, Mr. Maurice Behan, noted Guinness and Spurs connoisseur of Boston, Massachusetts. If you are ever in Boston and want to rap about the Spurs and the Boys in Green, drop by The Field in Cambridge.
