Paul, do you remember if there was ever a specific or defining moment in your career when it dawned on you that you were actually quite good at this football lark, and realised you had something special to offer to football as the ultimate centre half carved out of GOD's own image? (p.s. that's me off to hell then)

What is your defining memory from your playing time at AVFC? Many players are touted as 'the new McGrath' who do you think resembles your playing style most? Do you realise how loud Villa Park would be if you did a lap of the pitch before an important game?

Martin Laursen sadly had to retire due to serious injury, and Ledley King said recently that you are one of the biggest inspirations for him playing through persistent injury problems. What advice do you have for players with chronic injury problems like the one you had in prolonging their careers?
