A lad I know who was an ace footballer but quite bonkers used to talk about this all the time, about gifted brilliant almost genius players who could go off the rails. It was that very aspect of their personalities that could make them go astray that also made them superb unique players capable of utter brilliance one minute and go awol the next. Maradonna is prolly my favorite
