One time soccer genius ravaged by alcoholism is now in critical condition in an Arizona hospital following a bad reaction to a detox program.  This video of the once talented soccer star shows just how sick he is just before he was sent to the States for treatment. We wish Paul well his life if clearly on the line and this is about saving his life not about soccer.

And this video shows the talent of Gascoigne in his prime

I’m truly sorry to hear about the condition of Paul Gascoigne. Not just because I am a fan of his as a soccer player, but because he is an obviously talented man, and the world is much better off having him in it. Even if he can’t return to the world of soccer after his rehab program, I still wish him the best of luck.

This just goes to show that alcoholism really can effect *anyone* really. It’s a shame that this disease took away not only his talent, but his health as well. On a positive note, though, I hope that his example helps influence future athletes to stay away from drinking and risky behaviors that can ruin their careers, and also shows the public that this is a disease that effects all people.
