As documented in this very blog, Gazza is no stranger to the UK’s original new town. One night, on a particularly low ebb he contemplated suicide on Platform 1 at Stevenage station.
Now he’s back, on the other side of Lytton Way (no bridge-jumping Paul!) appearing at the Gordon Craig theatre with Jimmy Greaves. Is Ian St John dead, does anyone know?
Now I love a good footie anecdote and these two will be regaling the audience with some beauties, I have no doubt. After all, it really IS a funny old game.
My worry is 2 people with well-documented struggles with alcohol left to their own devices after the show in a strange town – and all the other towns on their extensive UK tour.
“Another Perrier Greavsie?”
“No thanks Gazza, I’m taking it easy tonight.”
I just hope Mrs Greavsie is in close attendance – and that she isn’t leading the charge…
And for the record, there is infinite love in my heart for Gazza. And that probably goes for the rest of the country too. Do a good show, guys.
