Paul Merson and Paul Gascoigne were both tremendous players.
However, despite being players with extraordinary ability, both had their flaws which hindered their footballing talents.
Merson was a technically-gifted midfielder who spent 12 years at Arsenal; but he struggled with alcoholism, gambling and drug addictions throughout his career.
Despite these problems, he was still named the 26th greatest Arsenal player of all-time in a fan poll published by the club's official website.
After his career with Arsenal was up, he would later have spells at a number of clubs including Middlesborough, Aston Villa and Portsmouth, before venturing into management with Walsall.
Even though he would win two Premier League trophies and acquire 21 England caps, he was still known for his personality off the field rather than his brilliance on it.
Although Paul Gascogine could be considered one of the greatest midfielders of his generation and one of the best players in England's history; his off the field antics were very similar to Merson's.
So, naturally, the duo became good friends.
But, when you pair the two together, there is sure to be carnage.
And Merson, who currently works as a pundit on Sky Sports, recently appeared on A League of Their Own, where he recalled a hilarious game he used to play with his good mate Gascoigne.
When the duo were housemates, Merson revealed that they used to play a drinking-game which occurred every night apart from on Friday.
The game featured bottles of red wine, sleeping pills and money; so you can envisage for yourself where this story is going...
You can watch Merson speak about this hilarious story here:
The story left the audience and the rest of the panel, which included Andrew Flintoff, Jamie Redknapp and Jack Whitehall in hysterics.
Although this story came as no surprise, one can only imagine the outrage that a story of this nature would generate if footballers in today's era acted in this manner.
