What Do You Expect From David Silva?

Spain international and now Manchester City player, David Silva can play as a left-sided midfielder, an advanced central midfielder or even as a second striker.

Nonetheless, having paid debt ridden Valencia 33 million euros for his services what do you really expect from the 24-year-old?



Perhaps he will strike up a lethal relationship with Carlos Tevez, similar to the one he enjoyed with David Villa at Valencia, or perhaps he'll do a Robinho and show glimpses of what he can do but in the end his small stature will fail him in the fast, furious and physically challenging Premier League.

I for one hope the 5 foot 7 inch Spaniard can truly take his new challenge by the scruff of the neck and in doing so make himself a living Manchester City legend. We wait and see.

Valencia Fixture Announced

I suspect part of the transfer deal was to have a pre-season friendly with his former club. This was confirmed yesterday when MCFC announced that Valencia would be visiting the City of Manchester City Stadium for our final pre-season warm-up game. The match is scheduled to take place at 7pm on Saturday, 7th August.

What Do You Expect From David Silva?

More of this I hope.

100% effort, whether he succeeds or fails, is all one can ask. And I think we'll get it, he's no primadonna.
StuMCFC
I would expect him to play left side of midfield in a role similar to the one that Robinhio tried to fulfil but hopefully he will also track back and have a better attitude.

I know we have paid a big quid for him, but will wait and see how he goes, expect him to play left mid in a 4,2,3,1 formation.
johnkelv

Robinho springs to mind when I think of this guy, dont know why it just does
Rob-EFC
i'd guess it cos they're both very talented
me_innit
Yeah me_innit, similar build too. Oh, and they're both internationals for respectively the best and second best national teams in the world. So yeah Rob_EFC, there are a few similarities indeed. :-)
