    I almost forgot about Bernardo's little cameo he shows some flashes of what is to come once he gets up to speed having these 2 and the rebirth of Delph is only going to make us even stronger the second half of the season.

    Depends what you mean by at Silvas level..
    More likely to ..and skilled at ...getting a foot in,more likely to score( more confident finisher?)
    More robust..
    Not a more skilled passer ,obviously,but def no slouch in this department either,
    Imo
    Edit.just noticed you acknowledge he hasnt played much football this year,so fair comment

    I only mentioned Silva because that's who he replaced in the side and some would look at his performance and state "well he wasn't as good as Silva". He needs games and we as fans might have to accept a slight drop in performances while he gets up to speed.

    I reckon if he retains his fitness throughout the season he'll be in out first xi by the end of it.

    He's nowhere near ready yet.

    And in saying that, he was still good as an individual performance. But he's off the pace of the overall team.

    Great gamble playing him last night as it's a big game and it allowed him some well needed game time with the starters and not just the disjointed Cup team, while allowing us to give Dave a bit of a rest.

    As Zin and others have said, this lad is our ace in the whole later in the season once he's up and running.

    Good showing for Germany last night, if nothing spectacular. Good for him to get more game time.

    Funny isn't it - We bought one of the best players to play against us last season, and it's easy to forget he's even here. Always tough to manage this amount of talent but he must be mindful of David Silva's age and feel pretty confident about staking a first team place for himself eventually.
