personally I think this is more tied to his overall fitness than abilityat the risk of transferring my own experience playing over to someone else I can personally say if I haven't recovered fully my legs feel like lead and my touch suffersobviously he's a professional and would be different than you or I but he's still subject to fatigue and I wonder to what degree the need for Martinez to use him as much as he has has had an effect on his performances; afterall, in the past 3 seasons he's went from a high scoring imact sub for West Brom to a starting forward (who often played 60 only) in a more limited schedule to this season where he's playing in 2 competitive matches a week and training and playing at a high level for Belgium in off weeks and on top of that coming off a world cup summer with a shortened rest period vs. previous summers
I really hate hearing this stuff (not a dig at you Blueski) - he's a professional footballer, he gets enough hours rest and relaxation in his professional fitness programme and it's not like this is his first year is it?Pro's play football as kids and develop and get given more and more all their lives as they can handle it - it's not a bloody shock to the system - this is what they DO! Fatigue my arse. (that's not an invitation)
At the moment he looks uninterested to me, weather thats because hes playing out of position i dont know, that said on his day there arnt many better, hes strong and powerfull, i think its a confidence thing with him, one thing is for sure though he doesnt look happy at all right now.
Hope it's nothing to do with him feeling and hearing the fans who loved him last season and were so desperate to sign him in the summer groan every time he loses the ball and shout obscenities at him about being lazy etc every time he doesn't close a man down at full throttle...
Form is temporary, 1 in 2 goal scoring records are permanent (I hope!)I'm backing him to turn it round and get even his biggest haters to spell his name right
