    I'm sure the BBC could offer him a tennis presenters job for a few £100K a year, he'd make a mint........a Murray mint.:happy:

    Most of us moved out of caves centuries ago. There is absolutely nothing wrong with men showing emotion.

    Exactly. There's a thread dedicated to depression and suicide. Bald rick should probably have a read
     


  5. Paul Gascoigne became a national hero over shedding tears.

    Not such a hero these days sadly

    Gascogne was/ is a man-child who's intellect is found at the bottom of a glass
    Shows the lack of brain getting booked knowing he'd be suspended
    No tiny tears here for him

    Don't know what to make of it? Plenty of farmers men and women, struggling on ,trying to make a living or helping their offspring, with bodies riddled with arthritis and worn out joints! How much sympathy do they get? At least Andy can get an op at any time, and wont have to worry about making a living.

    I think you’re confusing genuine mental problems, unremitting stress often outside of your control and money problems with a multimillionaire having to stop knocking a small bag of fuzzy air ov,er a net.

    If you really want to cry, cry over the fact that this country has food banks in 2019

    I can assure you that in the glare of the media crying is very easy, I have done it myself,, thankfully I think 99% of you lot missed it. :whistle:
    Sadly there is nothing the media love better!

    What pee'd me off big time watching the cryfest on the news was the (unintentional?) promotion of Nike. Soft lad was ducking his yod and flashing the logo continually on his baseball cap. He was only announcing his retirement not the death of his favourite goldfish
    Nike must be hugging themselves with glee

    So a half decent sportsman has to retire after making decent money due to an injury.
    Headline news? NO !

    It’s happened to many in the past and will in the future too many people in all walks of life . Do they crack up possibly but they then have to get on with life .
     

  12. Well, he’s a bit more than “half decent” but I will admit I thought bbc news was way over the top.

    I suppose it is such big news as he has been Britains best tennis player for many generations. When we host 1/4 of the grand slams - and the BBC love Wimbledon :rolleyes: - he was always on a pedestal when there was so little competition nationality for his tennis skills.

    Don't agree with him being Britains greatest ever sportsman or making him a Sir while still playing

    Just my take on him . If he was playing in my front field , I'd close the curtains so I didn't see him . Acts like a spoilt sulky brat IMO and the world would be a better place if he went back to Scotland - and took his mother with him . Apart from all that I don't really like him one little bit .

    That’s about all he is he managed to win two grand slams when other top seeds were out injured fair play to him as you can only play who’s infrount of you.
    He’s not the best ever British tennis player.

    He’s done well for himself no doubt but he’s been bigged up by the BBC due to the fact Tennis is one of the few sports left they have.
    I’ll dare bet he’ll not starve or have to do night shift lambing to earn a crust.

    2-3 makes no odds if it had been what Federer or Pete Sampras had achieved then maybe you could say more but he didn’t

    Think Mr Murray should read this thread, and live in the real world

    Is anybody else really struggling with 2019 so far!?

    I know if I got an injury and had to stop farming I would be pretty passed off

    Oh no. If you've devoted your whole life to something and have to pack up you're not allowed to be emotional. You should just man up and move on. The tff Neanderthals say so
