    Pep Guardiola on @21LVA [2018]: “David Silva is a mixture between both of them [Xavi and Iniesta]. David also knows when to control and when to accelerate.”

    I’m not arguing that at all. I agree, and that’s why he’s not been a contender for a player of the season award IMO. Whereas he ticks over and keeps his standard high, there have been other players who have had their purple patches or their stand out campaigns which has seen them in the front running for these awards. See - Suarez (should have been Yaya), Hazard, Van Pricksie, Mahrez, Bernie and Sterling considered over his name this season.

    Yes, so really winning POTY whether at club or national level isn't really a true measure of a player, especially as it usually goes to strikers other positions get excluded. Think what we've seen year in year out is a better way to judge players comparing him with others in the same position, as I say best I've seen at City up there with the best. Players like Ineista, Xavi who probably never won their player awards either.

    I know when I see Silva play for the last time for us, it will be with a heavy heart. And as for eyes, I doubt I'll keep a dry eye. Gonna be sad to see him go : (
