Burn Out

Comments (2)

I get the feeling that we may be paying the price for a hectic recent schedule and lack of depth. On face value i think most would agree that a couple of our best players seem to be a bit down on form recently.

The good thing is although they are down a little on form it hasn't translated to losing games. Cahill, Arteta, AJ and Cars have all been a little below their best in recent games. I believe they may be suffering Burn Out and are in need of a break. Because we lack the depth of the "Money 3" we cannot afford the luxury of keeping such players fresh. Combine the hectic schedule of games over the past couple of months along with international committments and it is a wonder we haven't lost games and dropped valuable points.

If we can go on and finish in the top 4 in the Premier League and progress further in the uefa it will be nothing short of an amazing achievment. I think we have the current squad can hold their heads high and be proud of what they have achieved so far under difficult circumstances and suffering obvious burn out. It will take more than tired legs to stop us. COYB!
