We have been to watch the new Besty docu in town tonight ,in IMBD style 6/10 for us ,nothing new on what was ultimately a sad sad story,nothing I havnt seen before hundreds of times ,no fresh foootage,nothing new said ,tbf cant really see the point in making the story.
Of course the nearest person i have ever had to a hero ,saw most of his games ,some of my most fantastic memories ,but on reflection he let everyone down most importantly himself.
Love you George RIP.

Further detail ,he played for United before the introduction of the premier league.Yes football existed before then,in fact without the support and the history of the club back then we wouldnt have what we have now.
Anyway back to George Best ,born in NI played for United 1963 - 1974 ,look him up ,he was quite good and had an interesting life.

The insight you offer is just invaluable

Could you take a minute from educating us on players I'd personally never heard of like George Best (he sounds good btw) and speak a little more about the gay conspiracy behind the BBC

He let himself down is bullshit, he had alcoholism and who knows what mental health problems, he put on a brave facade because that's what blokes did then.

But if he'd been English he'd have a statue outside fuckin everywhere!
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

He has a statue in the most important place.
Mental health problem ? Well i suppose alcoholism is a form.
Dont think he was an alcholic when he first did one , it was the thing to do in those days ( rock stars) go on benders ,shagging everything you fancied, become unreliable.
Anyway ,a fairly dissapointing docu' in as much ,I have seen it all before.
He was a good looking fucker and some of the women he was banging wow.
RIP even my Mam loved him and she never watched a game in her 70 odd years.
Was at Northampton.

Alcoholism is a recognised chronic medical condition... that's not disputed any more... Best never made a big deal about it because he could afford it, and he enjoyed his life... like most things, it's always more destructive when you're poor... Best lived the dream to the limit, burned both ends, and went too soon... for me, the only criticism is, he should have had a lot more respect for the new liver... that was a waste of a second chance, that probably should have gone to someone else...
