      Football does not deal well with mental illness. Maybe it’s changing but the support mechanisms are so often not there. I’ve spoken to so many players who have been told to go to the Sporting Chance clinic and they’ve refused because they know, if they take time off, they’ll lose their place in the team. Someone steps in and does well, so you’re gone. That dissuades people from getting help. You feel obliged to get on with things.
      This paragraph is really eye opening to me at least.

            Think we should give him another chance IF he reduces his wages to next to nothing for the final year or reduces them to nothing at all!

            However, will assume he will move on to another club who will pay him a reasonable wedge

              That's the point. He (rather his agent) tried that last year by placing a story in the Guardian about him digging irrigation ditches in Africa with his own hands/ taking care of Freddie the Leper....

                Have to admit I think this goes beyond football now. Whether it's a biased view of the owners or not it seems they're more worried about saving a buck than a person's wellbeing. There is a mention of Clarke Carlisle in there and like with him I feel that Ollie knows the lad needs an arm around him. Think it's best for Caulker to have a year still here with Ollie to get him mentally stable and anything else is a benefit to us

                          And as soon as Clarke Carlisle was fit enough he bu**ered off.

                            Very complex issue this stuff but I cant help being sceptical about this article.

                              I was worried it was just me being skeptical about this.

                              If true, very brave to come out and say it all.

                              However, all feels like deja vu from last year. Also blaming having lots of money for his problems doesn't sit right with me.
