Any Norn Iron heads will know those stone steps are not to be trifled with. I went to help him up and realised it was Higgins - poor man was a mess, it was like lifting a sheet of paper he was so thin.
Aye girls in heels and those steps are fuckin lethal,
Especially when they had dance acts the odd time, great venue for certain Giggs, coming out of there aff your bap is no mean feat when it's icy never mind a drunk old man.
Although Bestie was tragic, he retreated to a small village for a lot of his bad worst years probably because he still had some £, at least enough to live an ordinary life without having to hustle though he did play for about 12 teams after United for all these non league clubs among others for a few games. Still sad but even clips of him in his last few games, he still did some magic.
