Gazza, National Hero or just a waste of space?

He abused his ex mrs and family and continues to do so, but why do people still love this man. Me personally have great memories growing up in the Gazza years which i think makes people see past his wrongs although we shouldnt, but why do we?

Must be hard though being an alcoholic with 90% of the male population wanting to buy you a beer. Best the 2nd or what?




There will be those that think football is a girls game

My bold
Dosen't stop his "family" (step kids etc) cashing in on his name though does it ?
That ugly daughter would be nowhere without him maybe they should stop bleating on and get the guy some serious help
Where are all his mate Chris Evans etc who were quick enough to jump around him when he was on top of his game

Another George Best I'm afraid
I walked past George Best in London once he was stood outside Smiths drinking a can of larger,stunk to high heaven
I never recognised him I though he was a tramp it was my mate who pointed out who he was and then I had to have a good long look

That's the best one liner I've seen in ages. Fcuking laughed out loud at that. Cheers for that mate. :D :D :D

Gazza, sad waste of talent. Seems to be a genuinely nice bloke who just loses himself in drink and turns into a nutter when he does. A great shame.

Yeah, but they regard him as their Father. And don't you think they've tried? To be told to "**** off!" by him. :roll:

You can try for years with them, and it won't make a difference - Rehab doesn't work, if they don't want to do it. Seriously, I've seen other alcoholics, and I tell you now, nothing that their family, or their friends do, makes a damn bit of difference.

The only person who can do anything, is said alcoholic. And it's unlikely that they will.

Is it me or is Gazza slowly morphing in to Jasper Carrot?

I stand by my earlier comments
His ex wife must have known he was a drinker there were enough pictures of him falling out of clubs and the famous dentist chair etc before they got married
He was only married to her for two years 1996 - 98 and her and her kids have spent 10 years playing the proffesional victims
If he's that bad ditch him and his name plenty of women do

Totally agree with that only person that can sort it will be him

His son made a good point when he said if you ask him who he is he will reply "Gazza" his alter ego, not Paul Gascoigne. He cant accept the fact his playing career is over and being "Gazza" is all he's got left to hold onto he must think IMO.

As a link to this i once came across Gary Charles the defender who Gazza fooked his leg up tacking in the 91 FA Cup Final. Was about 5/6 years ago when i was a recovery controller.

Short story is he was that much of a pissehad his mrs had to take him to work with her in a hospital near Bromsgrove. She gave him some dinner money, he brought a bottle of spirits, took the car, burnt the clutch out on a duel carriageway, done a shite in the back seat, wiped his shite with money then left the car and was caught banging a farmers door nearby. Seems that generation of player were in the transition from drinkers/players to athletes/players.

I though that Ehud Barak guy was after a football top when he was on the news this morning saying he wouldn't rest till he got a Gazza strip.

She did, but he got steadily worse - mainly, degenerating to kicking the crap out of her. No wonder it only lasted two years.

Plus, they are still trying, mainly due to the fact that they remember him, before he got like that - his own kid, doesn't want to know, as he saw him as a drunk, abusive man, nothing else.

And yes, plenty of women will do that, but they want to help him, but unfortunately, they can't.

Dunno the army equivilent of this but.. "safeguard" what I saw last night was bull. Ex wife selling out-poisining the kids also. Notable the daughter saying "I have cut him off but could never totally cut him off" (to that effect). Obviously the mother has upped the financial aspect of Gazza to her.

I knew Gazza when he played for Burnley and stayed in the Oaks hotel in Briefield. I honestly think somebody witha good pr agency behind them is out to make a buck.

"He snapped my fingers back out-dislocated...then popped them back in"...Yes luv...!

Edit 4 mong

I dunno, but most of europe seems to be pretty pissed off at the strip he recently did in Israel.
