Watching the decline of Gazza is upsetting.
There is a valid argument that he’s just another spoiled ex-celeb with an desire to self destruct, but isn’t it time someone stepped in and at least tried to put an end to the miserable mess his life appears to have become?
The list of frequently manic and unbalanced examples of his mental deterioration doesn’t make for happy reading. Where once folk would greet his antics with a wry smile and a roll of the eyes, now they invoke uncomfortable silences.
From watching footage of the man, listening to audio of him and reading eye witness reports in the newspapers, this is a guy who stopped living the dream a long time ago. What we have now is a man lost in a repetitive cycle of pain and sorrow.
Some folk like to indulge their bodies with excess occasionally. Some folk get the taste for excess and never let it desert them. Others just have demons they cannot shake without help. Prison is not the answer.
It’s time to help.

Nothing anyone can do………
Each of us will have blood on our hands…… i hope those that are able to, give this man the help and support he so obviously needs.
Well that’s it then, “Nothing anyone can do”, i bet you’re first on the list of contacts for those in times of need! Nice one
Agree with Terriballs Im afraid, until he actually wants help theres nothing can be done for him
Had people known more about mental illness and the treatments for it back when Gazza was younger he would have been cared for and looked after appropriately.
However, people just dismissed it as him being ‘daft as a brush’ or ‘off the wall’ a personality, a joker, someone who did crazy things and made his teammates and the nation laugh.
Unfortunately for Gazza it is now too late to stop the demons and the focus must be shifted to damage limitation.
Sonmeone needs to help him. I take great pride in the fact that Tottenham and in particular Gary Mabbutt still support Gazza and have paid for numerous treatments/spells in rehab for him.
These won’t work unless Gazza wants to change. If he’s not of sound mind to make that decision then it must be made for him.
