Monitor – David Silva

Filed under: Members - Posted by: Mark

David Silva is a name that has been much discussed this week, not least because City are set to face a Reading side that has capitulated in defence of late, conceding 13 goals in their last four league outings. The omens for City’s attackers look good and Silva, as perhaps the most secure Fantasy asset on show, has earned deserved attention as a result.

It has to be said, however, that Silva has disappointed so far this season. Niggling injuries and the erratic form of City’s strikers has undoubtedly hindered the playmaker’s returns. You only have to cast an eye back over statistics from last season to get an impression of just how Silva has dipped: by Gameweek 17 last term, he had fetched five goals and eight assists (Opta not FPL), a far cry from his current Opta stats of a single goal and three assists.

Given the number of eyes cast his way going into the weekend, it seems prudent to delve deeper into Silva’s performance data to run some comparisons to last season’s numbers to assess whether this fall in returns is a long-term cause for concern.

      otherwise williamson :(

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. You make me want to do Cazorla > Bale with my FT.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. But yeah, good team.

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
        1. 😀

          • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. I would change Berb & Puncheon around. Berb is playing as a MF atm.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  13. Half a mind to transfer Rafael out for Vertonghen or someone and hope for the best. 4 point hit...

    Any takers?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. Thinking the same but will rafael be back on boxing day? FPL says he is back 26 Dec but will he train in between sunday and boxing day? I doubt it meaning he is out for boxing day too?

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. i would, if rafael REALLY out, but who knows with SAF.. :roll:

      just take a deep look of your def line, i'd do it.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. *took 😛

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
  14. will caulker play this week after being benched this week?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. *benched last week

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. he's a risk from now on I'd say..was gonna get him last week so check a spurs forum to see the consensus and he was getting a bit of stick for being at fault for a lot of goals recently...with the return of BAE and now Dawson I'd say his days in the first 11 are numbered.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    3. sadly, no one knows :(

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  15. Looking at wildcard and i can do this...

    Guzan Bunn
    Clichy Demel Baker Stam Mariappa
    Bale Mata Silva Cazorla Michu
    RVP Suarez Ji

    Too much reliance on the 'heavy-hitters'? shall i go for a more balanced team?

    Thanks!

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  16. No Aguero or Tevez in scout picks this week?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago

    Begovic
    Johnson Walker Clyne
    Cazorla Michu Mata Sessegnon
    Rooney Tevez(C) Suarez

    (Mcarthy) (Sterling, Garrido, Baker)

    no FT. Good to go ??

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  19. I've just realized that if I win my last two la liga games against green windmill and Chris_white then I am guaranteed a CL spot....

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  20. just the two picks for me. i must be slipping....

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  21. Will rafael start/play?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  22. So I hope Tevez won't start, because that is Silva 2011 and I expect huge haul. Tevez playing is decreasing his potential for pts

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  23. Do I start Berba or Puncheon???

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  24. Carlito or RVP for (c)?
