    The animosity wasn't built over that one day. It was coming for months and was managed appallingly by the club and the player.

    I have sympathy with Ohara for long period

    We were in trouble and continued to play or rush him back from hernia issues

    But as said before all respect went at Brighton away and only people who were there will truely know what I mean

    I don't know all of the ins and outs of it, but my impression is that previously we did a poor job in selecting players and helping them to settle in. O'hara's character was/is flawed, but some responsibility must lie with the previous owner, CEO, and manager.
    Night and day to how we're managed today.

    Well, I wasn't thrilled by the signing of O'Hara and I'm a Wolves fan.

    The signs were all there: Tottenham had let him go, he and Danielle Lloyd were doing the imitation Posh & Becks celebrity couple thing with spreads in Hello! magazine (even though his achievements in the game compared to Beckham were negligible and Danielle had even less 'talent' than Posh!), no other established Premier League club was interested in him despite a relatively low signing fee for a player with his ability.

    But Mick obviously thought he could get the best out of O'Hara. Mick was wrong.

    I couldn't give a shiny ****e about his "depression".

    He's only "depressed" and looking back on things now because he's earning a pittance at the mighty Billericay rather than being paid £30k a week here for clubbing in Ibiza whilst out injured.

    I don't believe for one minute that he's suffering depression. What he's suffering from is reminiscing about when he had it good - and realising that he's now flushed all of that down the ****ter and probably blown the chances of ever earning that kind of money again because his chances of getting a job as a manager, coach or media pundit are about the same as his ex not appearing in the newspapers again for her saggy bits "accidentally" popping out of her clothing again after a night out.

    Too late Jamie, and whilst I empathize with those with mental illness issues it is a too convenient reason for you this late in the day.
    After all, I remember Huddersfield...

    Let’s not play good cop bad cop here in hindsight....

    At time he came on loan and for us was a big budget signing

    And he defiantly did his job, I’m not sure many wolves fans said after his first six months don’t sign him (it did they can be listed on single hand)

    Unfortuently injuries, bad management then the pressures of our failure by fans and himself got to him and rest history

    Hollywood O'Hara and Roger Johnson... twin disasters wrought on this great club by the unholy trinity of mediocrity: Morgan, Moxey and Mick. I take comfort from the fact that none of those five names will ever have further involvement with this club in the future.

    I don't think pie shops feature highly in Fosun's plans. They might be interested in a noodle bar, not sure who they'd name it after though - Glenn Hoo-ddle's Noodles perhaps?

    Agree to an extent, like the vast majority of fans was delighted when we signed him, brought back too soon after a major injury by Mad Mick to save his job and never the same player after.

    Poor Jamie and his first world problems. The commentator at Carlisle away referred him running like he was "towing a caravan" - now he's probably living in one and supplementing his meagre Billericay wages with a spot of fly-tipping.

    Hated him that day at Brighton. However looking back and listening to what he has said I’m prepared to move on and wish him well moving forward. We forget sometime that they are just kids and he ballsed it up and now admits that. We needed a villan at that time and his lifestyle and attitude have him that. Look where we are now, he’s got to start over and replan his future whilst we enjoy our club.

    I don't remember him running that night. Hardly remember him trotting.
    Looking back over a ruined life he seriously cannot blame anyone else so blames it on depression. "See! It wasn't my fault really."

    So basically you have the time of your life and party instead of working hard and then blame depression.
    Seems harsh but he couldn't get out of bed in the morning for training, but could go out clubbing, ****ging about?
    Every lads dream, but it's not maintainable.

    I'm no fan of McCarthy, but you can't blame him for another grown adults actions. He can be blamed for signing him, but He has no control on a person's own motivation. There has to be some personal responsibility by the individual to do the best you can.

    You don't catch depression as if it is a bloody virus. This pug faced moron simply suffered the consequences of his bad choices and couldn't handle not being worshipped.

    I agree that Hollywood is responsible for his own actions, but Mick was either 1/ negligent in signing someone who fairly clearly wasn't a fully-focused professional (as he hadn't succeeded in cutting it at Tottenham despite his obvious raw talent and was already doing Hello! magazine photoshoots with his superWAG wife with whom he was regularly doing the celebrity circuit) or 2/ deluding himself that he could get O'Hara focused on football and playing to his potential when his (O'Hara's) mind and attention were already all over the place, a lack of professional focus that was only made worse by the £30k a week salary that we started sp**king on him.

    There was a reason no established Premier League club was after O'Hara when we went in for him, and the reason was that other clubs had done their due diligence on the player and had sussed that he was a liability in the making. Mick on the other hand thought he knew better.

    You can't blame a manager though for backing himself to get the best out of a player. Let's not forget signing players isn't all down to the manager. The scouts should be bringing any possible character issues to the clubs attention as well.

    I dunno, I really struggle to take anything O'hara says seriously, I mean just look at his behavioural track record.

    Is he really suffering from chronic depression or is he merely feeling sorry for himself? There is quite a big difference.

    Maybe he is chronically depressed but you can't blame anyone for struggling to take him seriously

    only time will tell if he really is being sincere or not

    Glad you guys spent your early 20s inside, working and doing nothing.

    Get off the high horse for once and put the gold-tinted glasses down, saying he can’t be depressed because he had it all and blew it? What? Depression manifests itself in several forms and none of them are a pleasure to deal with, regardless if your rich and poor, those who are depressed and have the funds to do so tend to throw themselves into the excesses of life as a way to bury the issue.

    I’ve sympathy for the guy, one of the biggest issues (in my eyes) that the world faces, is the battles with ones own self-worth and mentality within the 21st century.

    Ridiculous isn't it... if me, my dad and my uncle had paid £500 a year rather than £350 a year for a ST for 10 years (that would be £15,000 rather than £10,500) so would have paid O'hara's wages for 3.5 days rather than 2.5 days.

    I’m not looking at him from a Wolves perspective but a human one, you ever had depression? It affects individuals regardless of wealth or status, take the case of Robin Williams or Anthony Bourdain. Just because O’Hara earned a ton and then lost it all doesn’t mean that I’ll rag on him or turn it into ‘how he let Wolves down’, if he had/has depression then he has sympathy as it’s an utter mountain to get over, and I feel no need to slag him off for it, especially if he’s trying to turn it around.

    Agreed - I just feel he wasn't depressed until he spent all his money.
    Unless he is mixing depression with being hung over.

    You never know what goes on behind closed doors, Gary Speed showed no signs at all on Football Focus, a few hours later, he took his own life, depression hides/manifests itself often in unseen places.

    One way people cope with depression is by throwing themselves into the excesses of life such as partying, drugs, beer and so on, to eliminate the need to think.

    It's a pity O Hara doesn't conduct his personal business behind closed doors instead of rushing to the latest media outlet to tell everyone all about it.

    People have their own ways of coping with it, can’t say I agree with the way he’s gone about things but if it’s getting him and more importantly for his kids, back on track, then all power to him.

    Far too much care about what footballers do in their lives, I know the wage highlights this, but they’re also people at the end of the day.

    I've little sympathy for him, he should apologise to each and every one us for taking the **** as he did. A total disgrace! On the other hand did score against the **** so maybe, not all bad,ha!!

    It's his view never the less. And one I happen to agree with to a large extent. Maybe that's because I quite possibly have more life experience dealing with depression than others on here, and hence my perspective differs to the extent where I tend to give people like jamie Ohara the benefit of the doubt. Others choose not to, that's up to them.....Does that make me wrong or a WUM too?
