yea wasn't bad, def felt for neil webb, having to get a job driving white vans after playing football, pretty grim. gazza needs to go into football rehab, he needs to get with tha guy thats treating ruddock and mutu. was weird seeing them muck about together.

Damn! I forgot to watch this even after the reminder on MOTD.
You're right about Gazza, Loz. He just wont grow up. Is he still calling himself G8 or something?

Cracking documentary which shows it ain't easy no matter who you are....just that they are closeted in this fantasy world for a lot longer than most of us! I guess its only sad that players like Neil Webb end up driving white vans because we come to idolise these players, who are really normal people, and put them on this pedastal which is impossible to replicate once their time is up.

...........on the other hand, bet they're pretty good at PES/WE!:D

Yeah but it focused entirely on top flight players, who earn the most.

What about the lower league plodder who earnt jack shit in the first place?? Surely he is even worse off?

I couldn't really have any sympathy for any of them. They earnt millions from the game, were idolised by millions. Now Neil Webb is broke, so what? I am broke through WATCHING football and nobody gives a shit! Life is hard.

Neil Webb - Stop feeling sorry for yourself, accept you had a great career but you are now a hasbeen. Get over it.

Butatista, I didn't say I felt sorry for them....I don't. Actually pissed off that Ruddock pissed about in the pub whilst playing for Liverpool. Talk about taking the piss.
