Sorry to hear about Gaza. I wish him the best.

"Gazza has been taken into a mental institution, full of retards with no chance of ever recovering to what they once were.

Kevin Keegan said hes glad to have him back at Newcastle"

I was surprised at what Roy Keane said:

"That is a problem, particularly with a lot of footballers when you stop playing, there is a massive gap in your life."

Must be awful, musn't it?

Agree, people like us never had the bags of money, playing football as your job, have everything taken care for you, how lucky are we.

Yeah, I'm just glad that I never achieved my dream of playing football professionally. My life is great...

Former England star Paul Gascoigne has been released from hospital after being sectioned under the Mental Health Act .

Gascoigne was sectioned following a series of incidents at a hotel in Gateshead last month.

The former Tottenham and Newcastle star has been receiving treatment for a number of problems, but he has now been allowed to return home.

Gascoigne has endured numerous emotional problems since his retirement from the game.

He has battled against alcohol-related and drug problems for years as he struggled to come to terms with life without football.

Gascoigne has been offered support by Newcastle and Tottenham as well as by many of his former team-mates as he looks to get his life back on track

I think his point is that it is difficult for some footballers to adjust to a life where they can no longer do what was part of their daily lives for the past two or three decades. Their best days are behind them. Money isn't going to change that fact; they can't buy themselves a five or ten year career extension. Some make the transition almost seamlessly, others don't have the mental strength. Sadly, Gazza falls into the latter category, though it should not come as a surprise really, seeing how he has always been a bit on the unstable side.

Troubled Gazza Sectioned Again
England legend Paul Gascoigne has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act for a second time...
Former England, Newcastle, Tottenham, Lazio, and Rangers midfielder Paul Gascoigne has been again sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

Hertfordshire Police confirmed on Monday that 'Gazza' is being protected again after an incident in Hemel Hempstead at the weekend.

A police spokesman stated: "Police were called just after 12.30pm on Sunday following a report that a 42-year-old man had approached a member of the public who was unknown to him, appearing unwell and in an agitated state in Hemel Hempstead.

"Officers arrived and accompanied the man to hospital so he could be checked over. He was sectioned under the Mental Health Act."

Gascoigne spent a fortnight at Middleton St George Hospital in Darlington following his escalating problems in February.

After 72-hours of sectioning, Gascoigne will be assessed by doctors and social workers.

Erratic

The highly-regarded player has always been troubled, but his lows have become lower in recent years.

He had a stint as boss of Kettering in 2005, but chairman Imraan Ladak dismissed him after six matches, deeming him "under the influence of alcohol before, during and after several first-team games and training sessions".

Gascoigne was first sectioned this year after displaying 'erratic behavior' in a Newcastle hotel and then hospitalised after 'causing concern' at a hotel in west London.

At the time, step-daughter Bianca Gascoigne said, "I really thought that he was getting better, but at the weekend he took a turn for the worst.

"I have learnt that my dad is seriously ill and it is something we are powerless to control or to help with.''

"people like coldplay and voted for the nazis, you can't trust people."

It's all bollocks really. How many of us would love to retire at 35? If someone from another walk of life hit the bottle at 40 because "their best days were behind them" you'd be nowhere near as sympthetic.

Although Alex Ferguson was interviewed before yesterday's disturbing news that Paul Gascoigne had again been sectioned under the Mental Health Act, his assertion that Gascoigne's life would have been simpler had he signed for Manchester United is given added poignancy by that development.

Having said Gascoigne was the player he would most have liked to sign, but failed to, Ferguson was asked by David Frost if 'he thought he "could have helped him with his personality problems?"

Ferguson replied of Gascoigne signing for Spurs instead: "That was a bad mistake and Paul admits it to this day because as a 19-year-old lad, going to London is not easy for a footballer.

"We'd be taking that away, and we had Bobby Charlton, Bryan Robson, Steve Bruce, all Geordies. We had a structure of players who could have helped him and I think it would have given him some discipline, maybe it would have helped him too."


.........................

I've often thought this about Gazza, why oh why did he sign for Tottenham where Venables would indulge his craziness, Ferguson would have sorted him right out.

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say if he had signed for Utd then we would now be talking about one of the greatest players to ever step on a pitch and quite probably he'd be in a far happier state now.

so if you don't hate Spurs already, have another think about it.

of course they were, it was the summer, they are always in the ascendancy in the summer, it's only when the season kicks off do they start to dip.

I actually trust Ferguson that he couldve sorted out Gazza.

Shame.

Real big shame
