Title: the life and times of Gazza
Post by: the dude abides on July 10, 2010, 04:57:11 PM


Former England footballer Paul Gascoigne has arrived in Rothbury to offer his support for Raoul Moat.

Talking to Metro Radio the 43-year-old appeared to suggest he had brought the wanted man a "can of lager, some chicken, a mobile phone and something to keep warm".

He added: "He is willing to give in now. I just want to give him some therapy and say 'come on Moaty, it's Gazza'.

"He is alright - simply as that and I am willing to help him. I have come all the way from Newcastle to Rothbury to find him, have a chat with him.

"I guarantee, Moaty, he won't shoot me. I am good friends with him."

Geordie Gazza, who has battled with drink for much of his adult life, is a frequent visitor to Rothbury as the fishing is good locally.

He famously fell off the wagon in the pretty tourist town in 1999, while still a footballer, when locals reported seeing him drunk in a local pub.

Reacting with shock to the news Gascoigne was in Rothbury, his agent Kenny Shepherd said: "He's doing what? I am sitting having an evening meal in Majorca. I'm speechless."

his live radio interview, from last night, is here:

It seems like any ounce of intelligence he has is definately limited to his feet.

It's actually quite sad to see a player with such immense talent be so completely unable to handle even the basics of life the other side of the white line.

he's hangingaround with the wrong sorts......someone needs to step in and oversee him.

and he needs to get his life back on track - and stop feeding his addictions.

It seems the only ones that are interested in being around him have ulterior motives.
