It was a general shout rather than a shout at you
I think the difference here is that you see what Nevin wrote as a criticism of HK, where as I see it as documenting his illness.
I am more than aware of alcoholism and the devastation effects it has on the individual and those around them.
I dislike the fact that Nevin shows no respect for the man. We all knew Howard was suffering, but so were many many others in football circles ..... did Nevin mention Ray Wilkins alcoholism or Kerry Dixons gambling addiction or Speedies name being taken down over racism ? ? I suspect he choose Howard out of bitterness and knows full well he cannot offend Chelsea fans as they are his target audience for book sales and afterdinner talks.
