The Championship and a talk about mental health – Football Weekly Extra

By on February 13, 2020

Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

We start by discussing the draw between Brentford and Leeds which sees Marcelo Bielsa’s team drop down to 21st in the form table across the last 10 matches. West Brom go six points clear thanks to a win at Reading, as well as Millwall’s equaliser against Fulham, which was a good few yards offside.

We run through the rest of the Football League, including the ongoing resurgence of Cambridge United, before looking ahead to this weekend’s Premier League fixtures.

In part three we talk to Archie about his recent absence from the podcast, and the mental health issues which he has spent the last few months addressing. It’s a frank and honest conversation, which covers Archie’s personal experience in recognising his own mental health and the recovery journey, which he is still on.

If you are concerned about any of the issues raised, or feel the need to talk to someone about it, there are a great many resources available. One of them is the Mind campaign, which we mention in the podcast and who you can call on 0300 123 3393 or visit, and the Samaritans are another – their services are available to UK listeners, 24/7, online or on the phone number 116 123 or email This is a directory of contacts for people outside the UK: And if you feel you need to talk to someone, please do.

Back on Monday.
