George Best - f. 1946 i Nordirland - død 25.11.05 af leversvigt. Storbritanniens formentlig største fodboldtalent nogensinde. Best kunne drible, score, heade og aflevere; han kunne næsten få bolden til synge. Hans mange modstandere på foldboldbanen forsøgte næsten alt for at stoppe dette uhyrlige talents vej mod målet.
De sværeste modstandere var ikke de hårde drenge i Belfasts gader, de tunge og provokerede forsvarere på Verdens fodboldbaner, der forgæves jagtede ham med (u)reglementerede tacklinger, men hans egen livsappetit og hele personlighed. Alkoholiseringen startede tidligt og en sjælden sportsstjerne slukkedes alt for tidligt.

Nov 2002 overlevede han en levertransplantation i London, dog var det en kort livsfrist. Overlevelsen i de følgende 3 år kunne måske hænge sammen med den stamina, som han erhvervede i drengeårene i nogle af verdens hårdeste gader i Nordirland. Efternavnet var nemt at udtale, nemt at huske - alt sammen fordi det matchede denne komplekse "Best(e)" fodboldspiller.

Sammen med en anden Manchester United-spiller englænderen Duncan Edwards (født i Dudley og død i flyveulykke i februar 1958 i München ) den største multibegavede fodboldprofil, som Storbritannien - og ikke mindst Manchester United - har præsenteret såvel på Old Trafford som alverdens fodboldscener. Når det var be(d)st, var det ikke fodbold, men sublim kunst. Tragisk og ironisk, at disse 2 gigantiske stjerner strålede så kort tid !

George Best - born 1946 i N.Ireland. Dead 11/25/2005 of Liver Collapse.
Great Britains greatest talent ever.

George Best could drible, score, head and pass, it seemed as he in rare moments could even make the ball sing as well. Lots of his opponents tried close to everything in order to stop him making spectacular football and goals. Nevetheless the most difficult of all opponents was himself. In Nov. 2002 he happily survived a liver-transplant in London. Perhaps one of the reasons for his survivel were his childhood-background in some of the hardest quartiers in the world - Belfast, Northern Ireland. The surname is easy to pronounce, easy to remember - George Best himself isn´t easy, but his playing football looked easy, and that qualify him as 4 "Best".

The very last day of George Best. A rough Novemberday in Northern Ireland, however he was not alone and could he have seen this memorial parade, he would have been so very touched, like hundred thousands of "spectators" were.

There are well-gifted soccers, there are unique well-gifted soccers and then there are some chosen few, close to heaven. - Best hasn´t a long way back!

It was a remarkable ceremony, showing that Great Britain never forget her great sons......
