The other losses I find more bothering as he faced all 4 of his major opposition and didn't really bother any of them. He doesn't seem to be starting finals well and grabbing the match early on like he used to. His long potting also isn't great and I feel this makes him vulnerable.
He is an enigma though. He is world champion and could turn up at Sheffield and run through the opposition like a knife through butter. At the moment that looks unlikely but after years of watching O'Sullivan I have learned not to be surprised by anything.
Yes pretty much this, although he really should have won the Brown Final, no reason whatsoever why he shouldn't have, no matter how well Brown played.
Hopefully he wins his 7th world title and all this will be forgotten.
