RIP George Best

I'm terribly saddened at the news that Irish footballing legend George Best has died today in hospital.

Best had his demons which are well documented but I'm sure he will be remembered primarily for being one of the best, if not the best, footballer to ever play the game.

Best had his critics but it always seemed to me that here in Ireland, both north and south, he always got respect. He had a great affinity with the Irish people and any time he appeared on Irish television he was always warmly received.

He was, in my opinion, the greatest player to ever emerge from the island of Ireland.

Rest in peace, George. You may be gone but you certainly won't be forgotten.
