Paul Gascoigne has faced more than his fair share of demons and addiction issues since his retirement from football and many wondered how they could have helped him more.

There’s too many stories and too many people to go in to and some you probably have to put the word allegedly in the mix somewhere but it’s easy to see the point the Newcastle-born midfielder was trying to make.

Particularly given the recent form of his former club, there’s certainly an aura around the Scot and his managerial skills but that doesn’t mean he didn’t make plenty of mistakes too.
