Best, Dennis is Law. That was a graffiti I used to pass each day on my way to school in south Manchester. Mercer and Allison built a team that were feared throught the football world and while we had Bell, Lee and Summerbee they had Law, Best and Charlton. They won the European Cup in 1968 - that season we won the league. In 1970 we played West Brom at Wembley and won the League Cup, later the same month on a cold and rainy night in Vienna City won the European Cup Winners Cup to become the first English team to win domestic and European honours in the same season. Football was still innocent and the working man's game. Players would stop to sign autographs and often played their whole career for the team they supported. And Best was part of my youth. Now he's a damaged man being gawped at and ridiculed as he lies gravely ill. He suffers from a disease that afflicts thousands of people who don't get the same publicity and who try to deal with their demons alone, Best's mother was also an alcoholic in a time and place where drinking was an escape. My thoughts are with Best and his poor family. You were a good player George but King Colin was better!
