If you're really Paul's friend, don't buy him a drink

Paul McGrath says he always hated hearing George Best was back drinking

Paul McGrath is an alcoholic, everyone knows this. We all know of this poor man's troubled past and his constant quest to stay sober. So why then do these idiots who call themselves, 'friends' buy him drinks? With friends like these you don't need enemies.

At a recent wedding, McGrath's 'friends' offered him drinks, which then led to an overnight bender and his eventual arrest. McGrath became verbally abusive to staff at the Tullamore Court hotel after the wedding when they found him trying to gain access to two locked cars in a rear car park.

Would you buy someone with lung cancer a packet of cigarettes? Would you buy someone with a severe and life-threatening nut allergy a bag of peanuts? Seriously, why are people still pushing drink on McGrath when he has openly admitted how much he wants to stay sober?
