Re the posts above - I think by current celeb standards we should also note Gazza isn't rich (though he's likely able to access more readies than most of us hereabouts).

 

In other words, the court accepted however misguided Gazza's actions they weren't malicious. Gazza means well at the time, right:

 

 

 

Yeah - sadly that was his second red card offence in that game (and he never even got booked for either) - the kick in the chest following through on Parker was a shocker and had he received the red card he deserved then maybe history and current reality might be different (not sure though he was always a bit hyper). 

 

EDIT: Ahh you've edited in the Parker tackle - total shocker and totally blatant - how did he not even get booked?

He was utterly bat shit crazy in that game.

The tackles were terrible BUT they were not made to take the players out, he was just running around like a kid who found the key to the sweet shop, went in and locked the door behind him.

When you look back on his football career it is hardly surprising that he has ended up a sad wretch of a man, consumed by alcoholism and mental health issues.

I do not condone his actions on that train but I do understand that he would have been primed and ready to do something as fucking stupid as that.

Stupidity is no defence though, is it.

I know what you mean but the leg extension into Parker does look like he meant to take the player out and the ball was hardly in shot on the Charles one if you watch he is never even lined up with the ball, only the player.

Seems that it is. Or at least 'she was fat and ugly so I gave her a snog to cheer her up' is a defence which implies the same.

At least he didn't offer her a fishing rod and a chicken dinner.

Looks suprisingly healthy in these latest photos tbh, compared to many of the normal photos circulating hereabouts of him..

Aye, apparently he prepared for court with massive late night gym sessions, likely to exhaust him and calm him down so his demons didn't wreck his chances of winning the case.

 

Obsessive behaviour, then - he's not much better than he's been of late, just managing the problems more effectively

One thing I didn't know till watching the recent documentary is that, even right up to when he was dying of cancer, Bobby Robson used to check up regularly on Gazza to see if there was anything he could do to help Paul, and would phone him regularly when on the wagon to encourage him.
