RIP: Georgie Best

A sad day for soccer fans everywhere… :cry:

Definitely. There’s a story about Best. Apparently, at the peak of his “shame” and “disgrace” in the 1980s, when British newspapers were writing about how horrible and diminished his life had become, he was staying at a casino.

Accompanied by a beautiful young woman, Best retired to his bedroom with so much cash in winnings that it lay spread over the bed. They called for room service. When the bellboy arrived, the young man looked in on the scene and said, with a perfectly straight face, “George, George. Where did it all go wrong?”

On the flip side, there might be some livers left over for the rest of us now. RIP.

“I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.”

I may have the quote a little wrong but it went something like this:

“They said I slept with 5 Miss Worlds, but it was only 3”
