Good to have you back ballsy.

...and in some news you'll be used to, another Arsenal player is injured. Koscielny, this time.

Thanks for well wishes.

Hope everything falls into place for you mate. Farken rough times by the sounds of it.

This may sound dumb but if you haven't already, you should get a puppy. Nothing like a doge to give you a reason to be slightly more responsible (but not kids responsible, fuck that).... and they are always stoked to see you no matter how much of a twat you have been.

Not the worst advice (from personal experience, my little dog had kept the wheels from falling off on many occasions), plus you'd be surprised how you broaden your social network through dog ownership, through just meeting folks down at the park etc... Plenty of top dogs at the RSPCA in Yagoona.

Luck doesn't come into it, hard work and staying mindful.

All the best Ballsy, good to hear your on the up - stay positive .

International break is so bad.. All you do is pray to read the news and not see any injuries from your players, not a care at all about the results. Di Maria travelling all the way to Japan/Hong Kong is shit for example.

Thanks for the well wishes guys. I'm lucky to have a great support network around me, good mates and an understanding partner. If anyone in any way feels hopeless or empty reach out and ask for help. There's no shame in it and I've met some amazing people on my journey who give there lives to helping others. We all deserve to be happy. Even Chelsea fans.

Couldn't agree more. This is my second German Shepherd Gunner. He and the one before saved my life numbers times, as you gotta get your shit together every day to walk them and they make you laugh and remind you that the simple things in life are the best.

Here's Gunner in full flight.

I'm an app and web user interface designer so my career isn't finance spacific. But yeah I have no record and no conviction as such so it will be ok. I loved the job I had so it was hard to take losing it. I was just unlucky that they thought I was dealing. Most people who get caught for possession/using don't lose their jobs. Turns out the guy I was buying from was very high up the food chain. Caught with 1/2 million cash, a few kilos and a pill press. :-/

It's pretty good actually. Confronting but you get all walks of life. Few important people in there that I can't disclose. First few days you detox and they fill you with anti psychotic meds and valim or bupes. Then you do a lot of group therapy and shrinks do lectures on how the brain works.

Then there's art and music theropy. Fucken hilarious all us addicts sitting in a circle round a chick with a guitar, old men, tattooed bikies,ex dealers banging along with bongoes, miraccas triangles etc.

I was luck to have health insurance so went to private clinics. The public ones I hear are much stricter.

Quite a lot of debate about Sterling and his " Too tired to play" comment for England.

TBH, I think its absolutely fine. Players know their body better than anybody else, the guy is 19 and played a helluva lot of football the last 12 months and not just physically, mentally taken a huge load on ( rise at liverpool, world cup, expectations this seaosn etc etc). Lets take the pressure off of some English talent and not plague him with injuries ( ala Owen).

Liverpool fans must be chuffed as well.

Edit: Oh and terrible media PR by Hodgson, again. Should never have even mentioned the comments to the press.

It could also be the old "You're 19, shut the fuck up and tell them you're tired so they rest you. Liverpool should be your number one priority kid". Happens all the time.

Yeah of course, I don't count there is some angst between Woy and BR, after the sturridge incident especially - I actually think this is possible why Roy said what he did, instead of just saying a more standard "we thought we could use his pace late in the game" or " Lallana has earned his chance with recent form" etc. I also think Roy has a very valid point in that it shouldn't be up to him solely to rest players, especially with Sterling playing 3 and a half times the amount of minutes from this time last season, as well as taking on a more key ( and so more pressure mentally as well as physically) role within the team.

Saying all of that, Sterling looks knackered the last few games I have seen him.

"It is understood that Sterling did not approach Hodgson to complain of being too tired to play but that the England manager decided that was the case after asking the forward a series of questions."

Anyone who knows anything about football disagrees with everything Hodgson says....except the English media

I'm reminded of a song from the rather successful Disney film, Frozen. Perhaps it's something the Liverpool supporters need to bear in mind, so to them I say this: Do you want to build a snowman? Or, alternatively, perhaps just shut the f**k up about Roy and your endless personal grievance towards him? Because, and I know you find this really hard to understand, most people couldn't give a f**k.

I can understand this to an extent in a world cup year but generally this isn't true. These blokes have one job and they are paid ridiculously well to do it. They have access to the best physios, sports psychs and sports scientists in the world. They could play more if there was more glory and or $$$ on offer.

They could easily play more. The issue is playing more and still retaining top form/condition and preventing injuries, especially at an age like 19 when the body is still tender.
