I know many will have little sympathy, once rich footballer throws life away, get a grip, pull yourself together, grow up.


I honestly understand all that but addiction is a terrible thing, a daily battle and its one that sadly will only end one way for Gazza.


I promise you that if he could get a grip, pull himself together and grow up, he would.








Paul Gascoigne in hospital as he faces being made homeless after another booze binge

Alone and homeless: Gazza
Ex-England ace Paul Gascoigne was being treated in hospital today as he faces being made homeless following another drinking binge.
Paramedics and cops were called after the football legend was seen slumped outside his flat clutching a bottle of vodka.
He was in the process of being evicted by his landlord from the property where neighbours had recently complained of the noise.
As he was taken away from his £3million rented penthouse apartment in the exclusive Sandbanks area of Poole, Dorset, Gazza phoned a friend to say: “I am in trouble, please can you come and help me.”

Slumped: Gazza was seen outside his flat with a bottle of vodka 

He was being treated at Poole Hospital tonight.
A friend said: “It is very sad. But the reality is Paul has been drinking for the past few weeks and once that happens things will only end one way.
“Today things came to a head. He has had a lot on his plate as he is in the process of trying to find somewhere to live.
“His landlord had given him 10 days to get out of the flat and it was weighing on his mind. Obviously things became too much for him in the past couple of days and he has turned back to the bottle.”

Gaunt: Gazza cut a frail figure as a paramedic led him into a waiting ambulance 

On Tuesday morning Paul was seen in a WHSmith near his plush home, which has a balcony overlooking the ocean.
He appeared drunk and unsteady on his feet as he posed for pictures with pals.
Today a spokesman for the star confirmed he was aware of the incident at Gazza’s apartment.

Unsteady: The Ex-England ace needed a helping hand into the back of the vehicle 

A spokeswoman for South West Ambulance Service confirmed paramedics were called to attend to a patient in the area this afternoon.
The troubled retired former midfielder has been locked in a life-and-death struggle with booze for years.
His latest rehab stint was in January when he checked into a £6,000-a-month clinic in Southampton.
This was at least his seventh attempt to get professional help to quit alcohol.
Our pictures come after Gazza reportedly signed to play for Abbey Windows FC in Bournemouth’s Sunday football league - for a fee of just £8.
Gazza, who now lives in Dorset, could be turning out in Bournemouth’s Sunday league for Abbey Windows FC.

We all know, and have known for a long time, how this story will end. Terribly sad. And he is one person wo cannot say they have not had the help and support they need. He just can't accept it as I think he actually does want to die. Whatever the reason for that is, I have sympathy for any human being that is obviously in so much pain and anguish. I wish there was more to be done, but I fear there is not.  Crying or Very sad

This makes me feel so sad, this man entertained me for years on the football field, he truly was a genius and it is hard to accept that he cannot beat this! Another George Best ending is almost certain!

In his home village of Dunston (just 3 miles from where I live) he is regarded as a warm and generous person.
As we can see, the effects of alcohol can be personality changing.... a warning to us all.

Or Brian Clough

Or Jim  Baxter

Or Jimmy Greaves

Or    ........ the list seems endless.

Perhaps they were exceptional players because of their disease. 

They had sufficient financial security to pursue their own weakness, and an excess of skill to wave 2 fingers at the coaches and teams who wanted them to track back, run 10 miles every game, and so on to become another faceless robot on the pitch.

Off the top of my head, the only one I can think of who has "Pulled himself together," is Tony Adams.


Others have gone for gambling like Peter Shilton and Kenny Sansom, but that is regarded as being less serious than drink as is the other addictive killer, smoking.


Having watched Gazza play many times from his early days at the Sid James Park, I cannot censor most of his antics on and off the pitch. He is certainly with Bestie, Bobby Moore, Bryan Robson and their like in my probable "Best ever 11" i ever watched.


Yes. It's too early for a eulogy for Gazza. But I'm left with the inescapable feeling that itr will be needed sooner rather than later. Sad.
