As an independent observer I was wondering would ye City fans not think that all these egotistical players, who lets face it are in it for the money, might damage the squad with their egos and wallets to match? Maybe i'm just talking out of me arse.

He was berated by some as a lightweight when he first appeared, but I've always rated Silva's energy and attitude. He'd fit into any team. He strikes me as being a team man. Some of the games he's played for Valencia in the last couple of years have been wonderful. The only reason he's on the bench for Spain is that Villa, Xabi, Iniesta and Torres are all ahead of him in the current preferred team strategy/set-up and in the queue. He's in the same type of place in that queue as Fabregas. His time will come. It could still be in this world cup, but it's more likely to be in the season ahead. Having said that, he is a different type of player than the five above. My distinct impression from seeing 20 Valencia La Liga games is that he's at his brilliant best on the wing. In modern parlance, he's a midfielder, but for me that doesn't do justice to the old term, Winger, and a left-winger to boot! Very good signing.

great comment Roy, especially regarding the important point about him being a team man. His commitment to the team means he should gel very quickly within the squad - like De Jong, Bellamy and Tevez have done. It will be very interesting to see how the team will shape up with Silva and possibly Yaya...

Famous, I just can't resist winding rags up. Seeing as I actually live in Old Trafford, I don't really get to see enough of them in the flesh (no bad thing really, guess they must all be in London or Singapore) so I just have to content myself with doing it on the internet. ;-P
