Just reading Simon Kuiper's excellent "The Football Men"
You would never want Bergkamp playing for your life. To achieve his great moments he appears to
enter a trance, shutting out the match. "People really have no idea what goes into the making of
goals like that."
The point being that Bergkamp is not consistent, drifting out of whole games at a time, but he
can create moments of joy that nobody else could even imagine.
