sfer did you know that stan bowles was a gambling addict and a heavy loser ....he owed a lot of money to a nasty bookie....he could not pay and they were looking for him all over london to break his legs....he was staying at a different address every night....he pleaded with manager to get him atransfer so he could get a slice of the transfer fee....so it took place and he paid the bookie off..and saved his life........but he carried on gambling....he was a real character
I did know that Derek and he was a real boozer too. In fact, and I DON'T WANT TO BRAG HERE BUT, I did talk to our Arry about this a few weeks ago at a charity do and he said he had never met any other footballer that was a worse gambler than Stanley.
I saw him once in the changing rooms trying to get someone to have a bet with him as to which droplet of condensation would reach the window sill first!!!
