Danny Rose has opened his heart to Press Association Sport: “I have been impressed, jealous, angry – I have been through a whole load of emotions. I’ve just been itching to get going for the past couple of weeks and I’m just grateful that I’m back in amongst it now.

“I have started seeing a psychologist to try and help me think positive. I have started reading books now to try and help keep me positive as well.”

Rose also spoke frankly and openly in a wide-ranging interview with talkSPORT and BBC Radio 5 Live, offering a glimpse into the depths elite athletes can plummet during difficult times.

“Last season I was doing well, I felt untouchable, I felt like I was one of the best. I felt that if I carried on with that form, anything could have happened.”

What we have here is a simultaneously welcome and unwelcome glimpse behind the curtain. Yet more wholly damning confirmation of the low IQ fuelled neediness of your average Premier League superstar.

‘I can’t show off and earn more money than god because I stubbed my toe-y woah-y and nobody loves me whaaaaaaaah, whaaaaaaaaaah, whaaaaaaaaaaah. Tell me you miss me and that I’m still the best, I stubbed my toe-y woah-y and it hurted me and now nobody is telling me they love me. I wanted to do what Bonzo did and fill my romper room with a banknote blower and floor to ceiling mirrors. My toe still hurts, tell me you love my toe, but not too much because it’s my toe and you have to love me more and tell me nice things. Whaaaaaaaaaah whaaaaaaaaaaaah this is all so unfair…’

What a hateful little child. You just know the closest he’s come to reading a book in the last decade is glancing at the instructions of an Xbox game.

This won’t sit well with many of the snowflakes reading this, but I’m only surprised that more of these morons don’t end up wandering into motorways or are found sat on railway bridges.

If it wasn’t for the fact that some poor ordinary – well adjusted – human (who hasn’t had a pay rise in 7 years) would have to scrape them up, I’d encourage them to keep on walking. Jump I say. Let’s all walk into the fast lane. Less mooching, more jumping, more walking. The levels of self indulgence here beggar belief.

On full pay (twice what the average Joe breaks his back and sells his soul for to earn in a year) for 8 or 9 months or whatever the hell it was and the navel-gazing drove him to needing to waste a psychologist’s time and use a self-help book as a coaster?

Footballers who can’t cope are competition winners who only won the second prize and so feel shortchanged by life.

Don’t worry, you’re still untouchable sunbeam. Nobody in their right mind would touch you with a bargepole.

    Harry, This post really paints a picture of the Human being you really are, utter scum. You spout typical left wing crap laced with complete ignorance, your comments here about mental health are a disgrace. To make fun of the situation Clarke Carlisle found himself in beggars belief, shame on you, you monumental cunt ( please pardon the pun !)

    • Harry Hotspur November 8, 2017 at 2:26 pm

      I’m left wing? How is deriding Danny Rose’s FABRICATED mental health issues vaguely left wing?

      • v annoyed November 8, 2017 at 2:59 pm

        Always the focus on how much they earn, like this is all that matters. everyone’s life situation is relative, you don’t avoid mental health issues just because your loaded or you happen to do a what we all think is a dream job, come Harry show some compassion, stop being a Knob, I know you’re a nice guy really ( this grumpy act is a little tired). Oh and by the way if you’re not militant left wing then i’m actually Danny Rose….

          I have no empathy, no compassion.

          You can’t cope with that – whose fault is that?

    • East Stand November 9, 2017 at 7:35 pm

      What a pile of shite…

  • caveman November 8, 2017 at 11:56 am

    Best and most true to situation article I’ve read on this little schmuck. Harry you’ve hit the nail on the head.

  • Scott November 8, 2017 at 10:55 am

    Like you H I am frustrated with the prompts from the press who love to stir the shit. I understand the jealousy, just wish that they would harness that energy into fighting for Spurs not working on an easy way out. I’m jealous of last weeks lottery winner but I haven’t found myself camping outside their house begging. He was happy enough when he signed his Spurs contract

  • marsinho November 8, 2017 at 10:53 am

    If we lived on their salary we’d go mental too mate, i’ll be more than happy to relieve them of that depression.

    True dat. He’s signed for the very best hasn’t he?

  • marsinho November 8, 2017 at 10:33 am

    psychologist or psychiatrist?….stop mouthing to the gutter press rose

  • SpurAndy 🍒π November 8, 2017 at 10:15 am

    New series of Detectorists on BBC 4 tonight.

    • Harry Hotspur November 8, 2017 at 11:09 am

      One of the best shows ever. I’ve watched the first series about 5 times.

  • mattspurs November 8, 2017 at 10:14 am

    I’m pretty encouraged by Rose’s words – sounds like a bit of a roundabout way of apologising to the Spurs fans for doing that interview.
    Whilst many of here like me dreamed of being professional footballers and think those who play for Spurs are the luckiest buggers on the planet it must get hard at times. For all the determination and luck of Kane we have the sorry tales of Soldado and Janssen to show us how deep a hole can get when confidence is low. I get a bit down when I get ill or injured and start to put on weight – imagine being unable to join in and be stuck in physio for ten months.

    • gloster1861 November 8, 2017 at 10:18 am

      You mean Rose is pleasing the insanity defence for his actions in blurting out his inadequacies to the Sun?

      • gloster1861 November 8, 2017 at 10:18 am


      • mattspurs November 8, 2017 at 10:24 am


        But really I think it means he’s got to put in some amazing performances to win his place back and to win back the respect of his team mates and the love of the fans – an he know it.

  • gloster1861 November 8, 2017 at 10:13 am

    So Danny thinks we need to know he’s seeing a psychologist to help him think more positive?

    If I had this cretin’s bank balance, I would have thought staring at the obscenely large numbers would make me very positive indeed.

    What a tosser. Perhaps he should visit people who have real problems in their lives. Maybe his psychologist can recommend talking to people queuing at a food bank.

  • SpursGoliath November 8, 2017 at 9:39 am

    He felt suicidal watching England experiment with a 3-5-2 while watching at home on TV?

    Join the club Danny, this is what it’s like on the plain of the real.

  • McG⚽⚽ November 8, 2017 at 9:34 am

    Anyone in any walk of life who can’t do what they love doing for whatever reason have a good chance of suffering from depression, regardless of the money they earn. Same thing happens with boxers when they retire, Aaron Lennon is another a case in point. It ain’t that cut ‘n dried. Maybe he should speak to the press less, maybe he’s also trying to convey to all where his head’s been? Let’s see if he starts screaming for a move come end of season before writing him off.

  • Aspurs November 8, 2017 at 9:21 am

    This guy is an A grade tw*t and needs to stop talking to journalists etc.

    • Harry Hotspur November 8, 2017 at 9:26 am

      The psychologist must have had trouble keeping a straight face while this thick fuck was ‘letting it al out’…

      • 89Spurs November 8, 2017 at 10:11 am

        IN IT’

      • gloster1861 November 8, 2017 at 10:16 am

        I hope the psychologist is charging this client a healthy hourly rate. At least somebody would then benefit.
