George's Birthday Today

Bestie would have been 76 today, I'm sure the older ones among us will be raising a glass tonight to the greatest footballer these islands have ever produced

Happy birthday George, simply the best:

Was a shame Northern Ireland never made a World Cup with Best at his peak. Would have been great to have seen how he’d have done on the biggest stage. I wonder why he never played in 1982. He would have been 36 then so perhaps he was just massively washed up. Absolute shame.

Thought he retired from English football @ 26 yrs of age

Left United at 28, I think, and just killed time playing for LA Aztecs, Fulham, Hibs and the like after that.

Interesting fact, Robb, he finished his career at Bournemouth!

The legend of the United Trinity in the 60s was the reason many of us became reds. 1st English team to win the European Cup... 10 years after Munich... 3 x EFOTY in the same team. You couldnt make it up. Outrageous.

A year after he died ulster bank brought out a George Best commemorative £5 note of which I managed to get two.

Might be worth more than the said £10 somewhere down the line.

Yeah, I saw that. His playing career reads like an encyclopaedia of world football clubs. Shame as he should have been a one club guy like Giggs.

Contact the club and see if they want one for the museum. They'll probably give you £25m more than it's worth.

'Bestie' was a woman beater. Lowest of the low. A total grade A cυnt. Stop worshiping this piece of filth.

And you're creaming yourself over a 'man' who punched women in the face and you call me a priсk? You couldn't make this up!
