George should be remembered for being a fantastic foootballer and a colourful character. There will be those who want to knock him but it cannot be easy to deal with the kind of media attention that his ability brought upon him and this continued virtually throughout his life.

He brought pleasure to millions across the world and I hope that's the memory that remains uppermost.

R.I.P. George

I will remember him for his footballing skills and great sense of humor.

Remember going to Craven Cottage to see Fulham play Man Utd many years ago, and see Bobby Charlton and Dennis Law and a new lad who had recently broke into the United team called Best.
Must have watched him the whole game as even then you could see the genius coming through.
He is without doubt the BEST player I have ever seen, and it's a great shame that he had to go the way he did. Thanks for the memories George.
R.I.P.

Wasn't into football so much when George was playing, but having a footballer of the stature of Pele, saying that George Best was his favourite player, says it all. The man was a true football genius and apparently a lovely man who had all the time in the world for his fans, unlike many of today's top stars.

Rest in Peace George, even my Mum (a Belfast girl) who doesn't like football was a fan, his skill and personality crossed religious divides, he was loved by Catholic and protestant alike.

Another sad bit of news - Richard Burns England's only World Rally Champion died today after a long illness (age 34).
How sad that his life should be cut short at such a young age.

I thought it was a wonderful response by the fans at all grounds over the weekend (with the shameful exception of a few Leeds morons) with their 1 minutes silence or better still the 1 minute applause.
Well done everyone, made me proud to be British.
