Oxford United's most successful player
Oh dear.....he used to live a few houses down the road fom me

I knew Ron, as he was my trainer at one time, but did not really know Graham.

I supported Oxford for years as a teenager

This name won't mean anything to people who weren't in the US in the eighties, but Steven McDonald, an NYPD Cop who became a quadriplegic after being shot by a 15-year old in Central Park in 1986, was a very big deal in NYC. His wife was pregnant at the time of the shooting, and he wasn't expected to live to see the birth of his son, but made it to the age of 59 and lived a full life, despite his situation.

Steven McDonald, NYPD cop paralyzed 30 years ago, dead at 59 - NY Daily News

Yes he was. Poor Graham couldn't make the jump to England Manager, and is doomed to be remembered in perpetuity for that cruel headline (The Sun, was it?): Swedes 2 - Turnips 0.
