It’s my birthday today and I received a phone call from Gary Mabbutt, as do all Season Ticket holders and members aged over 70). It’s partly a courtesy but the club is also looking out for people having a tough time so when he dials Gary doesn’t know if he’s going to have an easy or tough call.

I asked after Gary’s health and he said he was fine and then went on to say I’m doing so well that last year when Romero was injured I called the club to say I was available and, unbelievably, Antonio picked Eric Dier instead. What a mistake!

Gary Mabbutt always a gentleman.

He's the epitome of someone that you want as club ambassador. A fine player in his time, a role model for people with diabetes and as you say, a gentleman.

Without doubt the dumbest & most clueless member.

If you were to look for the definition of club legend and thoroughly nice bloke, you don't look any further than Mabbutt.
Top man.

Happy birthday! Seems like a genuinely top bloke and hopefully fully over the health issues as he joked!
