All in here please.
Thanks for starting this thread Ric!
Bernardo Silva is simply amazing. He's constantly on the move, always presenting himself open for a pass. When the ball comes to him - no matter how bad the pass - he controls it instantly. When pressed he hardly ever gives the ball away. And then, he delivers a killer pass.
As amazing as our midfield is - I think that Bernardo will force himself into our starting lineup - he's that good!
His fantastic combination of pace and ball control means he will be able to help us unlock stubborn defences like the one we faced on Saturday, IMHO.
Of course, it will probably take time for him to adapt to the tempo of the Premier League, as it does for most coming into the PL, but when he he has, opposing defenders will really have something to worry about.
Will become an indisputable starter very soon, think he's more suited to Pep's football than both Silva and KdB. Best transfer of this summer. But I think we'll need to wait a couple of months for him to get accustomed to a new (central) position and the system as a whole.
I was wondering what about his few minutes could warrant discussion. But I see it is just a general 'I think Bernado will be great' posts. Yeah fellas, we all do :P
Anonymous in the first half, created next to nothing in the second half.
I don't agree with the last bit. Top players with real quality can adapt instantaneously, I'm expecting him to start Monday, and have a super game.
Absolute bollocks, I've never seen a bench as impressively occupied in a long time, there are some folk who don't appreciate some of the work done off the ball.
As hard as it is to believe - I think that Bernardo will soon be recognized the best player in our squad; and this is taking nothing away from Silva/KDB/Jesus/Aguero - all of whom are fantastic. It's just that Bernardo is that good.
