Eamon Dunphy has been many things in this life, former Milwall midfield maestro, Manchester United reserve, 23 times capped Ireland international, penetrating soccer diarist, PFA representative, provacative sports journalist, even more provocative political journalist, extremely successful radio chat show presenter, extremely unsuccessful television chat show presenter. and most of all legendary pundit and part of the greatest trio since the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost .
He has gone from an exceptionally controversial Public Enemy No. 1 to a somewhat indulged eccentric family uncle. In honour of the release of the great man's autobiography we take a look at a man not afraid to get in touch with his emotional side and let it all hang out
