This has been a thought in my head for a while now and just wanted to share and hear your opinion about it. Although United has been inconsistent recently this trend of inconsistency is happening to most players around the world. To make it even more specific lets just talk about players in the top teams in Europe. In recent years I see many players not being able to stay consistent in performances the whole season. Players that are not even injured or unfit just seem to have a good day then bad day and the cycle keeps going. Its like very random without a particular trend. A player would start the season great, then suddenly starts playing bad football. These are player that are playing in top teams in top leagues. I am sure each of the big teams has at-least 3-5 players with inconsistent performances. I am not sure if it is players are more sensitive and moody or maybe mentally weak and very fragile and always in doubt. Did the type of football change and now it purely depend on the tactical factors? Or is it the managers now a days always changing tactics and player positions? I dont want to start mentioning names since I know I will miss a lot and I am just talking in general terms. If I compare this trend to football 15 years ago I can see a big difference in player consistency. A good player back then would play good most of the season. You would expect a certain standard from him and he will deliver week-in week-out most of the season. Of course its natural to have poor days but very rare I woulds say.
