The guy has talent, there's no doubt about it, but it's just a case of when he can be arsed to show it. You can list all the games you want that he's "changed" or won for us, but it speaks volumes that they can be so easily reeled off after the amount of time he's been at the club. You could say that he's been treated unfairly by being left out on Saturday, but I don't see how, he's had chances to prove himself and 9 times out of 10, he's proved himself to be skillful, but also lazy. Saturday was not a game where we could afford to have a lazy player on the pitch, we needed 11 players ready to fight, Babel has never shown that he is willing to do that.
I'm sure if Babel had spent the minutes he has had on the pitch working his bollocks off and giving everything he had, he'd find himself getting more minutes and then more starts.
