Couldn't believe when I read this.

Hope everything works out for him.

What I'm thinking is: is this something we should know about?

Sure, we want to know about it, but does it help him that his problems have just been published?

Having a possible breakdown on the side of a busy M602 is pretty public enough. Gossip would have spread regardless, an official statement gets what needs to be said out in a proper manner.

Yeah, you're probably right. I genuinely don't know the answer, it wasn't a rhetorical question.

But you know what I mean, this sort of thing is one of the most sensitive types of personal information, and it's protected for a reason.

Inevitable that it should go public for a well known footballer playing for a well known club. He just seemed to disappear from Everton news and not mentioned by Koeman when asked for news of players sidelined. Very sad indeed, I have first hand experience of breakdowns friend and family. It is horrible. He will get the best of attention and hopefully will recover.

I suspect it's an ongoing issue we've kept private for a while now.

Hasn't been in the squad for a while with an undiagnosed injury and when Koeman was asked he simply said he wasn't in a physical shape to play.

Once he has a police incident reported then I don't think we have a choice but to make it public through the media.

Now it's been made public and he's getting messages of support from everywhere it might help him move forward?

Hopefully anyway.

He probably isn't even aware it's made the news. It's likely the last thing on his mind.

Also it's something we should talk about. Keeping mental health issues secret is what makes people feel worse when it happens to them. You never know, this being made public may help a struggling Everton fan go and get help.

It should be talked about all the time, it should be approached all the time, if you even think that someone is suffering go and ask, I do, I know first hand how bad it can get.

Daily Mail mentioning his salary. *sigh*

Not just that but his partying in his Spurs days with reality TV bints and his past incidents with police. Whoever felt the need to bring that up needs sacking, has absolutely no relation to what Aaron is going through right now. Quite rightly they are getting pelters for it left right and centre from not just the general public but fans of other clubs as well as the likes of Phil Neville and Robbie Fowler too

Disgraceful reporting of the incident, thankfully widely condemned.

some people just think footballers because they earn good money have the life of riley....and to be fair most of them do..

However, this is becoming a growing problem within the game, particularly as players reach their "latter" years of their careers..

good luck and best wishes fastman.....
