    I think he may need a bit of a rest. Would help us develop other setups for when David is not available in the future also.

    Still not doing bad, i just don't want to see him burn out half way through the season.

    Could it be that Mancini is planning to give him that rest when he has brought in another attacking midfield player in January - Di Rossi perhaps?

    Probably rest him on Sunday in preparation for the dippers. Hopefully AJ will start.

    i think he's tired too. The whole point of having a big squad is everyone has time to re-charge. We should have started with Johnson or Nasri in the last 2 game and given Silva a breather, that way the squad stay's motivated key players get a rest & all the players should be raring to go in the crucial month of January.

    i haven't seen today's game, but it's true that ever since david silva skipped that match for a rest 5-6 matches ago, his game greatly diminished. for sure it was masked by all the goals he scored, but his play-making skills and passes were erroneous to say the least, and that's his primary role. luckily nasri did his job extraordinarily in the meantime, so the middle line didn't collapse as it, i suppose, did today. silva does need to pull his stuff together.

    I'll say it again - why did Mancini see it fit that our prized possession be risked against Pulis's plodding mules?
    The boy should have been at home in spain with his fucking feet up. We gave tevez plenty of rest going back to BA last season, the canaries are 4 fucking hrs away.

    Poor man management from Mancini, imo

    Some people are so far behind, they actually think they're winning

    Fair observation.

    It's wrong for people on here to suggest that Dave is immune to criticism. The OP makes a valid point.

    He's not been performing to his own very high standards in recent weeks. Today it never came off for him. Every through ball he attempted was intercepted he was caught in possession a couple of times.

    But let's not forget he is absolutely class and we are lucky to have him.
