Hey all English footbal fans...
Why can nobody help this hero?
Alsmost every other month he's in the newspapers with being in some kind of trouble.
A big salut to his football career though! Hopefully he will get better...

Why would anyone want to help him, except maybe clinically? He's nothing but a violent drunkard, and there are enough of those around.

What was the name of the ex-football player who drank himself into a liver transplant, then carried on drinking until it killed him?

No, I genuinely can't remember who it was, as I'm not a football devotee. But there was enormous controversy over him in Britain, when it was realised the extent of the scarce resources being expended on someone who it was believed (correctly, as it turned out) would not change his lifestyle one jot. It was perhaps the ultimate insult to the family of the deceased whose liver this person was given.

Yes, you're absolutely right! Thanks for clearing that up. The connection is that I see a lot of similarities between the two, and neither is IMO worth bothering with.
