Something that stood out in the article that i've thought of before is I wonder if someone somewhere could give him a role in football.. a daily one. Something he could get up for and turn up for each day. Maybe something to do with training. It would need to be a top club to keep his interest, but not Newcastle. It was just a thought. Perhaps he would see it as pity but if he had a purpose and could work towards something in football and help others perhaps it would give him a reason to keep going.
He was manager of Kettering Town for 39 days back in 2005. That didn't help.
I think Jimmy Greaves is right in that he says in that piece that Gazza just doesn't have the sheer 'bloody mindedness' to get out of this mess.
