Just read the extract and, as usual, you are shocked by the people who gave serious mental health problems. Looking at him on LFCTV joking around you wouldn't think he ever had a care in the world.

Interesting to see what all sports bodies have in place for retiring athletes as the missing adrenaline rush and no training regime must have a serious impact both be tally and physically.

The timing of you posting this is impeccable....thank you. Certainly helped me and more importantly has given my missus a better understanding of this silent killer that that has affected her husband for the last few years. Hats off the LFC, Jason and Chris and also the families involved.

Fair play to him for facing his demons and coming out of it a better person. Seems like a fan in the studio if you know what I mean.

Just seen the video of his red card in the “star sixes” charity thing. Owen kicks him so kicks him back. Interesting if we see them 2 on the lfc social media things again. Always have liked mcateer

He did what we’ve all wanted to

If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

Was on the Quickly Kevin podcast this week, good interview, some funny stories about his youth, coming up from amateur football.

Anyone watch his under the cosh interview? Some interesting tidbits. Souness was a heartless bastard to him at Blackburn. But in fairness he has apologized and made up with him.  Also was sad hearing about Roy Evans breaking down.

I've known Jason since he was a kid, when he was glass collecting at the Sportsman's pub in Tranmere.
Proper nice lad from a proper nice family.

I like Mcateer. One of the few ex-players who would speak out against Hicks and Gillett (before Rafa left and they started jumping on the bandwagon). Speaks well on LFCTV as well.

Don't know why he hangs around with Keys and Gray in Qatar all the time though.

That's good to hear. He never forgot where he came from, the move to Tranmere at the end for a big pay cut spoke volumes, loved the game and his local club.

Only thing missing was any sort of talk about playing under Evans and why we didn't have the success we should have, although maybe that's been covered enough elsewhere.

Or listen on the podcast, it's in two parts.
Highly recommended, I'm really enjoying it.

Under The Cosh tends to be laddish banter. That being said their was some interesting nuggets from McAteer. Seems a very likeable lad who always gave his best for both Liverpool and Ireland. Very sad to hear how heartbroken Roy Evans was when his time at Anfield ended. The Souness story didn't surprise me. He struck me as a brute as a manager. I think he has mellowed as he got older.

I think Houllier was right to move the spice boys on. He instilled a winning mentality at the club. He gave the club a solid base upon which to build with Hyppia, Henchoz and Hamann. Something Roy Evans teams lacked.
