Welcome to the finale of Lifting The Lid, on the Official Emirates FA Cup podcast.The show, hosted by Tubes and Steve Sidwell, that explores the unique experience of taking part in the world’s oldest and best club competition.

It’s been amazing to have a chance to really get into it with these guys and learn about their careers on and off the pitch… but we’re not done yet. We’ve got one more hero and he doesn’t hold back, it’s big Stan Collymore!

He’s played for, among others, Palace, Liverpool, Forest and Villa, and played a few games for England too, in a career that took him in all kinds of places. In this episode we’re exploring the idea of decisions, and we get to hear about everything from Stan’s career choices to his off the field decision-making as well. He’s also very candid about his own Mental Health and has been a campaigner for better support for players during their playing careers.

Let's change the conversation around mental health. If you need to talk, these organisations can help you: @heads_together: https://www.headstogether.org.uk/
