@Earlsdon_Skyblue1 was talking about starting a team, albeit not sure if it was tongue in cheek.

Perhaps that could change to a weekly 5/6/7 a side kick about amongst fellow SBT’ers if enough are interested? Not as intense or as big a commitment that way too.
Anything to be honest, haven’t played in years

There'd be some serious tackling flying in, in that game...

I'm in for playing football as long as I'm on Nick's team and not against him

Nah that's for pussies.

Outdoor all year round, sun, rain, snow etc.

The only good thing about indoor is shoulder barging into the wall.
Or into the rope at the sport connexion. Used to come away with rope burn every week.

I haven’t played basically since I was a teenager, never been any good, now massively unfit as well. I’d love to play, no idea where to even start looking for a level where I wouldn’t be an embarrassment.
I haven't played since the 5-a side league at uni. Desperate to play while I still (relatively) have the legs but don't know anyone in a league

Fucking shit.

Sorry to the couple of people on here who have been caught in the crossfire.

Not felt like this in years, always down just before my birthday that’s normal, but tend to get really bad roughly once a decade and that’s due and living at my mums and being locked down is starting to get to me. Snappy, moody, randomly dropping into a depressive pit. Not good.

First time I’ve thought about therapy in about four years. Think I just desperately need to get out. Out the house. Out of my Mums. Out into the real world. Out of my head.

Considered joining that SBiT MenTalk thing but not sure, just feel I need to be interacting and my social circle has shrunk over lockdown. 🤔

Get booked into it, go to the gym on Monday and burn it out of you.

Might be worth trying to speak to somebody as well.

Get a bit of routine back

I need it mate.

Move into my Mums in September was supposed to be a few weeks, a month max, so I’ve been in this limbo of “no point now, wait until the move” for 6/7 months.

I hope you manage to get yourself sorted one way or another mate and remember we're hopefully on our way out of this mess soon

I find it hard to give people advice on mental health as I struggle myself and often don't take the advice I would give

Join it. What harm can it do?
I doubt you'll regret it. Something you can so almost instantly as well.

Echo what Nick says really. Get yourself in to the gym, always makes me feel loads better.
All the best to you mate

Definitely agree with Nick on trying to get back into a normal routine.
Appreciate everyone can't do it for various reasons, but I've found running or even just walking for an hour outside does absolute wonders for clearing the head and improving motivation at the moment. Not good for anyone to be cooped up for too long.

Would definitely speak to someone too.
Hope you feel better soon

Maybe take a detox off SBT for a while? Just to force yourself out into getting some air and exercise.

Sorry, was meaning to reply to this.

Definitely happy to organise a weekly social to do with the above, I'm just waiting at the moment though because I might have a job which will take me out of the area.

As soon as I know I'll commit one way or the other.

If it's allowed atm I was going to suggest just take yourself off on a massive yomp in the peaks or somewhere alike, knacker yourself out and sleep like log.
