"Former England captain Dave Watson has a neurodegenerative disease which his wife Penny believes was most likely brought on by head injuries and repeated heading of the ball."

This is an intriguing arguement. I don't for one second doubt heading the ball tens of thousands of times, brain rattling around in your skull each time, has a cumulatively destructive impact on your brain - nowhere near as severe as a professional boxer getting punched in the face repeatedly but it's the same principle.

That said, if you took Dave Watson to one side aged 15 or 16 and showed him a crystal ball that gave him two options - head the ball and become England Captain but pay the price health wise at 70 or, don't head the ball, walk away from your football career before it has started, and have a lower risk of health issues as a pensioner, would he walk away? Not in a million years.

I run my sons youth team and heading the ball is a massively contentious issue, the boys are not yet teenagers and the majority are too scared to head the ball which puts us at a disadvantage against many teams. It's not the end of the world at this age, but as they progress to 11 a side it becomes a huge issue, not only for the team but for those individuals who have the potential to play at a decent level.

^the Aaron Hernandez documentary on Netflix showed a slice of his brain compared to a ‘normal’ brain - it was like Swiss cheese due to the CTE.

Suspect we’ll see a lot more about it in the next few years

I can't lie, as an arsenal fan; Liverpool have been immense this season essentially only lost 1 game in 66 league matches. That's crazy!

I hate to see it Laughing out loud

What's everyone hopes and aspirations as we enter the final quarter of the season?

My team has their highest points total EVER at this stage of the season in a premier League campaign. Hoping we can keep winning and push on for an Europa League spot now. Got to dream big Cool

Season has to be null and void. Only way. Any other solution opens a can of worms
