Am I the only football fan who is fed up of everyone trying to cannonise the late George Best. Sure the man had been a great footballer in his day, and I feel sorry for his family in their time of grief but, lets face it, he was not the type of roll model I would want to hold up to my children.
Not only did he drink his own liver into submission but he then went on to drink someone elses into submission too. One wonders if he had not been "The Great George Best" would the doctors who made the decision on his suitability for a transplant 3 years ago not have declined him the liver and given it to a recipient who would have treasured a second chance.
Despite being married to several beautiful women he failed to stay faithful to any of them, preferring a high life of wine, women and more wine and women.
It seems to me that people place more credit on a persons dribbling, passing and shooting skills than they do on a persons loyalty, honesty, fidelity, self control and common decency. How can this be right?

Besty's a legend because of his sheer brilliance all round. Can't think of a weakness---don't be predictably droll--- women and drink.
Remember the guy, if you were lucky enough to see him on the pitch, bringing you on the terraces to your feet time and time again with his magic.
It all went wrong George, but while you were on song you lived up to your name---Best.

Geogre Best was a drunk and a wife beater if the truth be known he jumped the waiting list for a transplant when some that needed it missed out and then he just carried on drinking say no more a good player in his day not brill just good pele was ace best isnt even in his shadows so give it a rest about a player that shaged anything beat women drunk all the time and turned his back on his club
