Yes, he has suffered bombing but of his own making. Paul Gascoigne, that great English weeper, is back in the news crying re-hab. It’s last chance Gazza, and drink has turned out to be his hardest opponent. Death is the next stop if he raises an elbow again, according to the England legend and his bartender.  He puts brandy away like he put Scotland away in Euro 1996. A whole generation of English boys wept with Gazza in his greatest moment, England’s semi-final battle with the Germans in Italia 90. But like many great English explorers before him, Gazza was wiped out before reaching the summit. In Scotland, on that day, we wept too. Tears of fucking joy that the English were out. Thankfully though, Germany lost in the Final. Not much time for them either.
