    I think for some it’s hard to wrap their head around mental health issues if they have never experienced any themselves.
    And that’s totally understandable, you could move this into BAME, as a white male I don’t know how that feels or what the challenges are.
    I didn’t speak to my Dad for a number of years, was basically told what would you do if there was a war now and you had to fight for your country, couldn’t just stay inside and say you’re scared to go out.
    Men are expected to be these big tough guys that nothing fazes them, but it’s not true and I think in future generations this will change, we’re seeing it now where more men are being open and with the COVID lockdowns this will perhaps accelerate it into becoming more openly discussed and accepted. 
    For me though, the focus shouldn’t be on making men feel more comfortable being open about the issues, it should be making it clear freedom of speech does not = freedom of consequences as I feel this would help work towards a number of issues. 
    Social media is a great way of communicating, but it’s been left to grow into this uncontrollable beast where it’s become basically a free for all.

    Everyone can see this but the EFL. 
    Until they are removed you will always have clubs pushing to the limit, finding creative ways to balance the books in an attempt to get promoted. 
    Owning a Championship club is cutting a hole in your wallet and watching money fall out as you walk. 
    How’s it financial “fair” play when 3 clubs have millions chucked at them for failing saying go on, give it another go.

    Can’t see Lampard wanting the U21 job, Morris yes and Lampard managing the senior team with a new setup.

    Soon as Lampard left I called it that he will be the next England manager. He’s the perfect guy for the FA to replace Southgate.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:
    parachute payments were intended to help clubs pay off contracts of expensive premier league payments. The whole issue would be fixed if they just changed the rule slightly to say they should be ring fenced for this purpose and this purpose alone. 
    instead clubs abuse them and use the parachute payments to by massively expensive players, which not alone drives the market up across the whole championship, but also leaves the clubs in exactly the mess the parachute payments were supposed to create when they run out of money to actually pay off the contracts. 
    in fact, it would be nice if the parachute payments were a fixed amount, or the value of the premier league contracts, which ever is less, so they don’t end up with an excess of a few million they can start chucking about. 
    but I think the damage has been done now and the market has been destabilised forever. 
    it really losses me off sometimes how inept these people are, running an international multi billion pound industry, and they can’t seem to see these simple issues. How the duck did they ever get a job above the level of chip shop (apologies to anyone who works in a chip shop)?
