Goodbye George

The death of the mercurial soccer legend George Best was particularly sad. To many, myself included, he was the greatest footballer of any generation. An iconic figure who’s talent gave joy to millions. He played the people’s game with an unsurpassed flair and elan that made it truely beautiful. Yet he also ushered in the modern era of superstardom, wealth and excess. True genius walks a fine line…

  • “I have known no man of genius who had not to pay, in some affliction or defect, either physical or spiritual, for what the gods had given him.”Max Beerbohm
  • “Every true genius is bound to be naive.” – J.C.F von Schiller

I sincerely hope he’s found peace at last…
