Gazza's tribute: shambling, incoherent.
I know this is going to get me into trouble but here goes.
After a busy day at the office last Friday - it was the day of Sir Bobby Robson's death - I arrived home and switched the news on.
There was, understandably, a lot of coverage of the sad event including interviews with those whose lives had been touched by this wonderful gentleman.
They included Paul Gascoigne. Former Newcastle player, England player, better known as Gazza. Once, if my memory is correct, asked to be known as G.
It was a shambling incoherent affair with Gascoigne on the brink of tears.
The interview, if it can be called that, was full of comments that made no sense and thoughts that were unfinished.
It was, to be frank, embarrassing.
We all know Gazza has his problems and his motives in granting the interview were of the best intentions.
But it should have ended up on the cutting room floor.
It was one tribute, heartfelt as it was, that Sir Bobby could have done without.
