You have to hand it to him, you really do. Graham Geraghty first showed his adroit political sensibilities Down Under in 1999 and has always been known as a man who is far from afraid to, ahem, fight his corner. Up till now, these confrontations have tended to be with the opposition – as, for example, Dublin’s David Henry could testify from their encounter a few weeks back – but reports today suggest that his penchant for such manly romping extends to the internecine variety as well. A fully-fledged Alpha Male, one that’s well capable of putting it about both verbally and physically: you can see now why the Blueshirts wanted him on board.
