Curious what the rest of you think about his whole situation. Legend for this country but how many chances does gazza really deserve? Is he a lost cause and is dying the only way he will ever escape his demons

Such a shame

    Always be a legend in my eyes for ' that ' goal against Scotland . All his mates abandoned him when he hit hard times . Watched an interview with him once , he said from 7 he skipped school almost everyday and kicked a tennis ball against a wall . And football was all he had ever known or had ever learned . Get well soon

    It's not fair the way certain papers and media shadow him to get him at his worst.

    Probably is better off not being alive tbh, putting it bluntly. No family bother with him, no job opportunities available, got attacked last week, in and out of rehab (more in than out).

    That's no life.

    What a bizarre series of events that was.

    Unfortunately that is the way some people treat people struggling regardless of if they are famous or not.

    A similar story from over here in the States involves one of the greatest offensive lineman in History Mike Webster. He played 20+ years in the league and won a bunch of Super Bowls with the Steelers. He sustained heavy concussions and after he left the league went crazy because of the head trauma. Lived in a van for a while and pulled all of his teeth out with plyers before eventually shooting himself in the head with a shotgun. No one even really knew how bad he was suffering until it was too late.

    Pretty sure he died of a heart attack

    And I don't think Gazza will ever clean himself up tbh, too trusting a person and will always be taken advantage of.

    Well I'll be damned but you were right about Webster's death. Sad story either way.

    Always loved Gazza, what i'd give for a legend card, so so sad to see :(

    So sad to see him like this. I heard that he was involved in an accident (he was playing football in the street with another boy and this boy got knocked down) and gazza blamed himself for it and was really traumatised by it. Felt sorry for him since I heard about that...
