There appears to be some level of boredom, so Iíll throw this one out. Clearly not the player he was, but why?
Used to be tidy. Didnít give the ball away and made useful interceptions. However this season and maybe the back half of the last his form has dipped.
Is he just an Ďoverpayed playerí. Has he lost interest. Has he spent too much time with his mate at Fulham, or is the captaincy proving a burden? He missed the last few games, and there was mention of some family issues.
More importantly will his form return. If not does he have a value.

Don't rule out personal problems. He strikes me as someone who has got something going on behind closed doors

Very likely it could be management, not that I wish to point the finger. Was excellent under Sam but then slowly dwindled over time.

Iíd love to know too. Heís obviously got quality. Maybe it is personal. Maybe the family isnít settling? Although I must say his demise has been overhyped by most on here. He hasnít been as good as he was, but heís still had some decent games. Many fail to see the unsexy stuff he does week by week.

That's very true, Central Midfield is one of the most thankless roles in a football team. If you're doing it right, nobody notices you.

"Family issues" is often used as a euphemism for something more serious. Let's hope that it isn't in this case

Family issues? Surely if you are unhappy at home it doesnít means that you forget how to pass to players with the same top on as you?
Or you are so bothered about whatís happening at home, that you forget how do deliver a set piece?
Looking for excuses I think, maybe he just isnít very good anymore.

Nah. You donít just suddenly stop becoming good. Emotional state / confidence / mindset and all that stuff plays a massive role. Anyone can tell you that.
