Yes his later life was wasted, no doubt about it, but as an athlete he was one of the best there was of his time, sadly he will be remembered for the worst not the best.

Best was a waste of space, he had supreme talent and chose to drink it all away. As for having a minutes silence before ALL games this weekend what a joke, did they do that for Johnny haynes a few weeks back, did they hell. Fair enough if those clubs he played for want to honour his memory, but the rest of us know him for the wife beating drunk he was.

Nice to know you would excuse Rob beating you on the grounds he was an alcoholic should that situation ever occur Katie.

Best was an alcoholic who was seen as a loveable rogue despite being a wife beater, a jail bird and hopeless drunk. Great example to set before the modern generation as a flawed hero of the 60s.

I have to agree. What a piss poor waste of a life. The minutes silence is a joke.

I never said his personal behaviour was excusable, I was talking about the man as an athlete.

I see Beckham as a cheating womaniser but he is still a hero to many
