Peter Whittingham - why does he always have a rebirth immediately after being dropped?

on Sun Jan 24, 2016 6:41 pm
Another excellent performance yesterday despite a disappointing result. He's slower than before, but now once again commanding the centre section of the pitch with authority. Why does he always do this for a few games immdiately after returning from being dropped? Is it because he greatly benefits from the rest it gives his fading legs, or does being sidelined suddenly make him realise he's not as undroppable as he believed and thus actually has to turn up? I'd like to think it's the former, but I'm really unsure.

Whitt's confidence has not been high since we were mauled in the PL.  Slade has continually played him out of position and heaped too much responsibility on him in a bizarre midfield set up.

By accident, rather than design, Ralls was moved to central midfield, allowing Whitts to come back in wider left.  That has made a big difference and with his confidence returning, he is more like his old self.  

Still a long way to go, though.
