I’m enjoying the programme with Harry Redknapp and his ex football stars but I’m saddened by the mental state of some of the players.
Paul Merson - Gambling, alcoholism and depression.
Lee Hendrie - Severe depression
Vinny Jones - Alcoholism and depression.
Razor Ruddick - Alcoholism and morbid obesity .

Last episode tonight , C’mon England .

We have really enjoyed the programme.
Felt for Lee Hendrie, he was like a broken man.

Superb TV and it can't be a coincidence that such sad topics are being aired in Mental Health Awareness week.

Looking forward to the final instalment tonight.

Nice to see Alan Kennedy and Michael Owen.
Mark Wright and Razor also had LFC connections and of course John Barnes, shame he can’t play.

Spot on about the timing Bernie, hopefully it raises awareness. K

Great telly ., obviously beating the Germans was the high spot but Harry on the bobsleigh was pretty darned good too.
Bernie, spot on about the timing coinciding with Mental Health Awareness Week .
Paul Merson seems to have really come on since last year when Robbie Fowler was very supportive of him.
Merson "paying it forward" trying to help Ruddock …. think Razer will have to reach rock-bottom before he helps himself.
Poor Lee Hendrie, hopefully the success (and fun) of their little adventure will lift him.

Bee, I did a mini bobsleigh in Finland years ago, absolutely terrifying even if it was a slow short track . :shock:
Very brave of the lads.

Yeah really good program. Considering his age and weight i thought that David Seaman was very sharp and not scared of getting stuck in. He seemed a bit sad saying that this would be his last ever game.

I enjoyed this show, but I don't feel sorry for any of them. It's a good saying how the mighty fall, that's the way it goes. :wink: :)
Cheers Joe.

I don’t think any of them were mighty Joe.
They were just talented working class lads given too much during their short careers.
Most of their problems came after their careers stopped without the discipline or guidance of their clubs.
The ones I don’t have sympathy for are those who mess up during their careers, Best, Gazza etc.
Cheers
Ken
