Gazza the Great

Few English players have ever had the technical ability of one Paul Gascoigne. But yesterday his life took a turn as he was held by police in England under the Mental Health Act. Gascoigne has a long history of drink problems and has received treatment for stress, depression and a drink problem.

When I started watching the soccer, Gazza was one of the players that I flocked to. He had an attitude that made the game fun and the ability to make any Brazilian blush. When MLS was talking about bringing him over to DC United, I was so excited, but the move never came through.

So please let’s remember Gazza for all of his ability and not his problems.
