Quote of the Week

“I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars,” George Best once said. “The rest I just squandered.”

Arguably one of the best footballers of his generation (137 goals in 361 appearances for Manchester United, 205 in a career spanning 579 appearances for all clubs), he once stole a fur coat and passport from Miss World, struggled with alcohol, and died five years ago, age 59.

Much loved and missed, still.
