Clarke Carlisle in hospital with life-threatening injuries, read between the lines and you'd know it's a suicide attempt.

Confirmed. Ralf Little adds his two-penn'orth.

 

 

 

The usual tact and empathy of The Sun was in full-force on the front page today, reading: "I leapt in front of a lorry hoping to die"

 

S'cuse the pedantry but...reading that commaless headline, I'm wondering why the lorry wanted to die.

 

 

It was worn out by the trudge and grind of the road rat race, clearly.

A friend of a friend of mine was a train driver who quit his job after several occasions in which the train he was driving killed a suicidal. As they say, he couldn't take it anymore and it affected his skills. I don't remember him mentioning becoming suicidal himself, but I can't imagine a lorry being cheered up by the prospect of a collision with a footballer. He may not have been its first.

I understand the delight with which the rags report this unfortunate vehicle's plight, but they could be more considerate with its emotional condition. Why not bother the footballer who started all this?

regards,
Hein

Legendary german coach Udo Lattek, dead at 80:

He turned Bayern Munich into a juggernaut and also won trophies with Borussia Mönchengladbach and FC Barcelona.

 

Just last week, he wrote about his life in the retirement home in a very prominent german newspaper.

He looked like a bloody ghost at Ibrox. I'll be shocked if he's still breathing in 2016.

He took the ceremonial kick off for his tribute match the other day, and even that was too much for him.
Don't know if it was 'emotion' or he is physically that bad. I think the latter.


I saw footage of him at a Eredivisie match a fews week ago. He didn't look well. It's never easy to predict such things, but my impression is months rather than years.

Hein
