    Hi all, Was George Best the most gifted footballer England has ever produced? Yes I think he was. I remember one of his interviews and he was asked "What have you spent your fortune on?" His reply was quite ammusing and sums up the way that he lived his life, "Women drink and cars, the rest I have just squandered." George best has lived a remarkable life and Im quite sure he would do it all again with no regrets. As one news reader said, "Thousands of mourners are celebrating his life."

    Should his life style really be celebrated or just his remarkable wasted gift for football?

  3. Thanks be to ** he has gone to meet his maker.
    I am sick to death of listening to it in every news report and on ten pages of every newspaper....did no one else die then the last few days in the world?
    Well one man did at 35...a world champion rally driver who did not abuse with disdain and arrogance the amazing second chance at life that so many good people endeavoured to give him. Ask the families of people genuinely praying for that same opportunity today and you will find little sympathy. I am just glad that I wont have to endure his incessant round of chat show appearances where he would have been paid obscene amounts of cash to talk about how he has abused himself and recovered ....only to repeat it over again.
    I read his autobiography and used to read his column in a weekly newspaper and admired him very much at one time, but all he has ever said and preached about his life, his wife, his values and his gratitude to others was an absolute sham, simply giliding the lilly in an attempt to endear himself to the public at large, when he was nothing more than a celebrity bum.
    The only thing I regret in his passing is that it cost me three pints of Guiness in a bet that this miserable pathetic waste of lfe didnt make it till midnight on his day of reckoning.
    If this man were ordinary Joe Soap rather than a feted ex football playing Champagne Charlie he woulg receive the scorn and disdain he rightly deserves.

    he was an insult to the organ donor that gave him a second chance, not to mention all those clubs he had comebacks at, or not!
