It happens in all walks of life sadly.  Students at universities are taking their lives presently through stress and lack of support. 

They'll be a lot of disappointed young players out there.  Teams like us have picked many big team rejects and they have went on to great things. 

It's sad he didn't get that much needed support and backing.

Help was offered to him but he didn't want to take it.

That's not really relevant at all, what goes through a persons mind with mental health varies from case to case. Just because he was offered help doesn't change anything about this sad event.

Does having a family member in the youth academy count as a reason? emoji848.png

 Are you saying that this lad has a brother in St Mirren’s academy? I’m sorry to read of this death regardless of association. I just never saw the link to St Mirren in the OP.

Unfortunately suicides account for so many needless deaths especially males under 50. I’ve lost a good few friends to suicide and the feelings of guilt never leave you even though you are not responsible for those actions.

A brother, I thought more likely a child or grandwean that isn't getting into the first team squad due to all the irish journeymen we've signed.

 

ETA, I was referring to the OP not the young fellow in the story.

Without being disrespectful of the dead, what has this got to do with St Mirren?

It's also a 7 year old article. Thousands upon Thousands of young footballers have sadly failed to make the grade since then. Absolutely bizarre to bring this up.

Correct me if I'm wrong, wasn't Waldorf the poster who came on here after Magennis left, lamenting that Erhahon would be next out the door as we're a club not willing to give youth a chance? Erhahon has started every game since and signed a contract extension.

Sometimes it just easier to put your hands up and admit you got it wrong rather than doubling down.

Funny Erhahon starting getting a game after I raised the subject of him NOT getting played in his correct posi6.I said he was the type of player we must promote or he would be off.

I'll give you your dues. It takes some amount of front to suggest that you're the reason Ethan is getting picked. :lol:

No I disagree. That’s got to be one of the funniest this year.

Unless that is there is substance behind it and Jim is just Waldorfs puppet.

More likely substance abuse is behind it!

Felt your post was quite insensitive and not really the point. So I called you out on it.
