Sir Alex interview


Recommended Posts

Heard Sir A saying how Gazza might have benefited at 19 by choosing Man Yoo instead of Spurs and the London bright lights.

 

On such mad decisions, the seeds of madness are sown... or at least, the existing seeds are not prevented from flourishing.

 

I would certainly imagine SAF having a more positive and steady influence on his life than Terry Venables did. Would imagine that Venables positively encouraged a lot of the drinking culture at his club at that time - he certainly did within the England camp in 96.

 

But, Gascoigne is a child. He can't handle the fact he can no longer play pro football. Wouldn't be much Sir Alex could have done about that.

But if SAF had him for a decade say, the child within may have been moulded into a man. No drink culture tolerated, and the introduction of basic self-discipline, something always lacking from the clown-child, may have turned his life around towards positive life-habits. Sadly for Gascoigne, no-one will ever know. I blame cinq bellies.

Finally watched this last night.  Interesting that he is waiting for the BBC to apologise before he will speak to them again.

Anybody else think he should bury the hatchett?  The BBC are not going to apologise for a documentary they made if they stand by the findings of the programme.

 

This was the programme that upset Fergie four years ago and he has never spoken to the BBC since:
