    There is nothing I disagree with in your comments but I personally think it's too early to think about effort levels and possible complacency. I think puel is a tactical manager who will play horses for courses (now that he actually has options) At this stage in the season I just can't work out how good we are, based on not knowing how good/bad wolves and man u are. (And by extension also Everton) Whilst writing this I think there is a very real possibility that it may be more about how good puel is. The man u game, minus the brain farts, and understandable inclusion of iheanacho over vardy, and amartey due to so many just arriving or recovering from injury, has to be considered a success. Maybe the wolves game was tactically a success as well? We are finding our feet, and too slow to start, but saw the game out quite comfortably second half.

    I genuinely believe we are still missing mahrez. However we have been missing him since we won the league so you might have just got used to it. (I do understand the sentiment and he is obviously fading from memory but today was a very fortunate smash and grab, and we were missing a lot today, especially from last week's performance at old Trafford.) This league is ****ed up. Judging from who we have played, and who they have played, (and how we/they have played) man u should get relegated and Everton should win the league.

    That's nearly as impressive a stat as us taking the lead with zero shots. (Seriously, I checked it out online during the match)

    To help the rest of us delicate ones out, I think we should all "follow" you, then if you could click the like button to "confused" on those that you refer to on this forum, we will all be better prepared. Do it wrinkly. I dare ya 🤣

    Depression

    But be prepared for the effect of being less "emotionally involved" You are on the first steps to feeling better but be prepared for your opinions of said friends to change when you find out some of them are actually prepared to put in far less effort than you are, even after you have backed off a bit to protect yourself. People do disappoint. The key is to accept it and not try to fix something you have np control over. People who suffer from depression tend to care far more than others in my experience. Hence the outpouring of help and experiences on here. Others, let's just say less so. "We" have our own issues, but I sometimes think at least we know that and are trying to do so.ething about it. Some.of the rest are fine, but I think a lot have similar issues but either don't care, don't know, or won't accept it, and therefore do nothing about their issues or the effect it can have on others. I hate people 😂

    Is it blue tinted specs or did our Steve always seem to come out on top?

    Indeed, and I am definitely optimistic and agree with want you are saying. However,a 5-0 a la Bolton under tater peeler can also set the opposite tone. individual games with extreme results can dictate the season. They can also, however, be a total one off either way.

    Depression

    I had counselling which centred around this theme. 2 parts. 1- CBT. Cognitive behavioural therapy but in a nutshell, it's not that hard in itself but takes time. First put on a front, act like things don't bother you, make a conscious effort not to react. And it really did work. First it's an act, then it gets easier, and eventually you genuinely stop giving a shit. And the second part is very similar and easy in words. Be selfish. Accept that nobody else will look out for you better than yourself.pbviously there are limits and don't go to extremes but believing you need to be happy, put yourself first. To put it into a context that doesn't make me sound like such a ****. I would argue with family members. They would move on and forget about it, and it would eat me up inside. They were the normal ones with the normal reactions and I was only upsetting myself. No one else cared so why should I. Generally I am a lot tougher mentally. However as a long term suffered of depression I had to learn the signs. Learn when to shut down and look after me. Don't get me wrong, it's not as easy as it can sound, but it really is that simple I terms of practical steps. You can train yourself to think differently, until it becomes second nature. It's ok to have doubts, it's ok to not make everyone else happy. When you are at your lowest you need.to protect yourself and look after what makes you feel better. And the motto to remember. **** 'em all. I used to want everyone to like me. But in reflection I wouldn't piss in some of them if they were on fire. https://www.nottinghamshirehealthcare.nhs.uk/leicestershire-county-and-rutland-service There are other counties as well if you're not in leicestershire. They were great when I needed them years ago. I am now 2 weeks into my 4 week wait for a telephone assessment but chances are I'll be through it by the time I get a face to face. That's what happened last time. Seriously, just try the acting part. It really did work for me.

    Gotta love this thread. Chatting to like minded nutters. We depressed people certainly have the best cases of foot in mouth syndrome. 🤣

    I like the sound of this. The only way we get our money's worth out of iheanacho is to play him into the form. One to work on as the season progresses I think. In some of the "easier" games. The one big downside is would it reduce maddisons input because that boy looks good enough to write off nacho here if that's the only way to get the best out of maddison. If that proves to be the case then iheanacho is back up and needs to take his chance. Pre season form was good but the man u game was great apart from I didn't trust that he would score for us. Vardy is too good to leave out. Iheanacho needs to play as striker. Not support and so this is definitely worth a try imo. I also just don't like this 1 striker fashion in the modern game. Ps. I expect to see ghezzal Saturday, not albrighton. Don't feel strongly enough to say if it's right or wrong as it seems a weak area right now. Just the way I see it going. Don't think albrighton is the automatic pick people seem to think he is/should be.

    Depression

    My wife sent me this and then pointed at my recumbent exercise bike (glass back and arthritic knee hence no running) posing as a clothes horse. Point taken. Back to watching Dexter whilst on a ride to nowhere. (The only downside is I'm currently struggling with "situational depression" due to a particularly nasty business contract conflict, so someone could end up in bin bags)
