Born To Booze

‘“I’LL SAVE YOU, GAZZA,” says the Star. Or rather, says Chris Evans, for the copper-headed funster has extended the hand of friendship to his “troubled pal” Paul Gascoigne, and offered to put him up at his gaff, rather than the American clinic that the larger-than-life footballer currently calls home.

Gazza and some empty glasses

The paper describes Gazza as suicidal, which doesn’t bode well for his latest business venture. For the Sun reports that Gascoigne is to publish a self-help manual called Face Your Fears, which will help readers deal with their inner demons and give them “strength in their battles”.

Directly underneath this is another story, whose story offers Gazza a terrible warning of what the future might hold: “Yoga is best for George.”

It seems that Bestie has been drinking in the last-chance saloon again, and has checked into Tony Adams’ Sporting Chance clinic after “weeks of boozing”.

He is now “practising the Bhuddhist art five times a day” – the idea being to “try the exercises whenever he wants a drink”.

It seems to be working – three days into the programme he could already drink from a glass of white wine held between his toes.

Now if he could just get the hang of those turkeys, he could be in business…’
