    I agree that alcohoism is an ilness but it is brought on by the suffer. George has had all the help possible and just abused it. Yea I do feel sorry for his family but he should have had more respect for the family who suffered and gave him the liver and actually used it how it was meant to be used not just killed it off. I again have no sympathy for him.

    my thoughts exactly, it's impossible to think how people must feel if they know it might be their son or daughters liver that he has

    So will a minutes silence be held before matches tomorrow? I would presume not, as there seems to be a lot of different opinions on him and i cant imagine everyone would want to respect that silence...

    He was, quite simply, the best footballer I have ever seen.

    I am quite frankly saddened and ashamed to read some of the comments on this message board. I'm not perfect enough to condemn the lifestyle choices anyone else makes, but obviously there are people on here who are so perfect they never make a mistake or wrong choice.

    Put simply - we are losing someone who was a genius -a flawed genius yes. But a genius none the less.

    I for one will miss the passing of someone who Pele called 'the greatest footballer in history'. And that praise is worth ten times more than any of the sanctimonious comments I've read from some on here.

    I'm going offline now. Some of the comments on here have quite simply sickened me.

    Thank you George. I will never, ever, forget you.

    Has anyone on this forum criticising George Best actually been through alcoholism? I don't think it's as easy as 'just quitting drinking'.
    Yes, he messed up. But he was a good man, and a great player. A bit of respect for him?

    RIP.

    well...ALOT of more imporant people are dying.
    So you're judging who the important people in the world are - I thought everyone was equal, and every death should be saddening

    If alcoholism is brought on by the user, that presumably means by drinking - which, by your reckoning, would mean there are a hell of a lot of potential-aloholics out there, and everyone who drinks should be condemned. I think you have to recognise that this was George's weakness, and couldn't be overcome, just as each of us has an unsurmountable weakness.

    plus money awarded depends on positions doesnt it, so teams theoretically still have a little to play for even if they are lying in mid table.

    Are you a united fan? did it appeal to you when you won it every year
    We did'nt win it "every year" though. That's the way Chelsea are going.
