Just listening to a discussion on depression in football on radio 5 and they played a brief interview with Sam Hutchinson. He mentioned that it was only football that made him depressed and that the only managers that knew how to understand his depression were Ancelotti and Carlos.  

 

He also mentioned that he had to take anti inflammatories every day because the new regime at Wednesday insisted on players training every day to play in the team. He went on to say the anti inflammatories increased his depression and that training every day was the wrong thing for his body. Also mentioned he probably shouldn’t be mentioning this as he was now looking for a new club.

 

Only a brief interview but quite enlightening.

The start of a new era, at last, of players who can play more than half a season.

Obviously he's biased and I'm sure there is another side to the story, but if what he said is anything like accurate then that's pretty poor from the club. Interesting that he implicates all our managers during that time as well.

He'd made 23 appearances this season before Monk gave him the elbow.

This is a bit contradictory to his other interview I saw today

 

In the Youtube video in the other thread he says that he had to train every day to fend off his depression, and that if he didn't train every single day without fail then the depression hit him hard.

Depression is a tough battle so definitely give him plaudits for fighting back against it and getting his career resumed.

 

Having said that in footballing terms he has looked a yard off against most midfields the last couple of years and think that accounts for so many of his bookings for late challenges. The aggression and bite just covers for it.

 

Championship level is too high for a combative midfielder who can't naturally train daily.

 

Still think he'd have been better abandoning midfield and being a CB. Far less strain and easier to manage as Ledley King found. Can see him being a great CB in League One for a few years.

Really? Well that muddies the waters doesn't it? I can now go back to having absolutely no idea what his situation is again then. But if he's capable of giving two interviews in such a short space of time that appear to be so mutually exclusive, you have to wonder what is going on in his head.

I hope I’ve reported his interview accurately; it does seem a bit contradictory to the interview you heard.  With respect to the level of training I was under the impression that Sam couldn’t train full time due to his previous injuries and that understood and managed by the club for the time he’d been with us.  He said things had changed under the ‘new regime’.

Ive not read or seen his other interview in full but I did watch the video in the other thread where I saw him say with his own lips that he had to train every single day without fail etc

Surely training every day is what is required for first team players. If you can only train a couple of times a week then you arnt in condition to play in the team.

Not sure if you can catch up on radio 5 broadcasts but his interview would have been around 11.45am today 22.05.20.

I really like Sam, he comes across well and he was awesome for us for a 2/3 seasons.

 

From a footballing perspective for me we should have sold him a couple of years ago now. 
 

What goes on behind the scenes? Who knows, always two sides to a story.

Maybe there's a difference between full on training like the rest of the team and the level of training his body can cope with.

Depends on the individual I guess.

There’s been players who were still at the very top and hardly trained.

 

Paul McGrath & Ledley King come to mind.

The above stories are a bit contradictory.

 

He told me he loved training every day, his knees have always been fine, and the only time he suffered with depression was when he was dropped to the bench when he wanted to fight for promotion with Sheffield Wednesday.

 

He also said Jos Luhukay was a fruitcake, liar, and trouble causer.
