Sorry, you just happened to be able to speak to someone from the Jamaican delegation and they not only revealed to you that Morrison struggles with mental health issues (which they shouldn't be disclosing), but they elaborated on that to the point that they shared the exact mental health condition and medication needed (which they certainly shouldn't be disclosing), which are, coincidentally, the exact same condition you have and exact type of medication you take.

All of this happens (again, coincidentally) after someone on the internet points out that your favourite (wasted talent) footballer hasn't had any confirmed mental health issues, least of all one requiring medicating to the degree that it could affect his career.

Very much doubting the candor of your tale there, sorry.
to be fair this isnt as highly unlikely as you may think

That is a completely different take from what you initially said. I can tell you years ago what Raheem Sterling said on Jamaican TV but he is already in a tough situation there and I won't add fuel to the fire. Some in The English FA aren't any better. Others on here claim it is public knowledge. So apparently it is not confidential at all then! The way you phrased what you said in your previous post said a lot. Due to this, I doubt very much that you are even a Jamaican from the diaspora with the way you castigated us. Moreover, I did say that players like Jamaal Lascelles, Mason Holgate and Ben Godfrey (Who was turned down by The Federation) are not getting call ups because a couple, not all or most, have poor players in the squad who they are looking to sell to clubs abroad to make money. That for me is a bigger indictment against a tiny minority there than someone saying have empathy on a young man who has gone through a lot and here is the reason why. Let's love and support him.
This sounds intergalactic and very intriguing

First time I've felt genuinely sorry for him because he clearly was enjoying training with Derby.

They've not offered him a contract, I think they are limited to the number of signings they can make and he didn't get offered a deal.

They barely have enough players to put 11 on the pitch yet still won’t offer him a deal, that just says it all tbh.

It's not that simple of a situation. Rooney said that they only managed to sign 3 of the players on trial but they are hopeful they can sign more in time for their next game. They are under EFL restrictions, so they just prioritised getting a couple of defender and keeper in first.

He may not get a contract but there is still time.

Derby can only offer £4.5k a week to each player they sign

This. If he can’t make the grade at Derby with the lack of numbers they have and a sentimental Rooney as manager then that says it all.

Pleased for the lad. I know it's his umpteenth chance. But I hope he can make a go of it.

He can thank Rooney for trying to relive his career for probably romantic reasons.

So when he's offered a contract it's romanticism, when he isn't it's "just says it all".
People who said that were obviously wrong, but being offered contract means feck all in Ravel's case.

I do believe anyone can turn their lives around at some point. And I'll always hope to see Ravel pull it all together even if its for a couple of years.
I'd say he's probably doing alright mate.

Why does the title say “free agent again”?

I thought Derby dropped him

Largely anonymous in the game, some strike however for the goal, although I am still convinced the keeper should do better, he gets hands to the ball,
Maybe the pace is too much?!

The sad truth is that if he plays more than 2 games he’ll be doing well.
Eh? I would say any late 20s player would be pretty fecking disappointed if they signed for a club with a thin squad and only got 2 games, no matter who they are. Well, maybe if it's Niall from One Direction I suppose.

Well, he's only made 6, 1, 3, and 4 league appearances at his previous 4 clubs so the bar is pretty low for him. Maybe 2 was too low. If he hits double figures in the league for Derby it will be big progress for him.

Decent hit but took a deflection and keeps should have had it really. Hope he salvages something from his career

One thing in his favour is, he will get a run of games at Derby, as they don’t have any players. May just be what he needs.

He lacks focus, only way a run of games will help him is if they’re played continuously. 10 years of wasted opportunities for the lad, he will show glimpses and then it’ll turn to shite. But he’s made a good living out of the game, I hope it works out for him at Derby but have many many doubts.
