David Silva - 89 - SIF
The best playmaker #21
By jompa666, 05-12-2017

This little spanish playmaker is an absolute superb player. I always start him at right wing, then switch him to the CAM position in game. He controls the last third of the pitch with his AMAZING passing and insane dribbling. He is so agile, its absolute insane, he can twist, turn and duck around every player on the pitch. I have used Rui Costa and KDB in the CAM position, and in my opinion he is the best. He just deliver perfect passes EVERYTIME. I absolute love this man, try him and you will fall in love with him.

He got a few stand out stats:

96 vision

95 short passing

94 agillity

91 balance

92 ballcontrol

AND HE GOT 94!! composure

  • Passing - His passing is nuts, he can find anyone with a pass. I think his passing is better than KDB and Rui Costa.
  • Dribbling - His dribbling is absoute worldclass, he can dribble his way past a whole defence.
  • Shooting - His shooting is really good, most of the time. I would reccomend low driven shots inside the box with him, he is clinical infront of the goal. Surprised that he scores so many goals, with his 73 finishing.
  • Pace - He probaly wont outpace any defenders, but his aggility and balance helps him alot.
  • Physichal - 59 strength and 54 aggression. He gets pushed off the ball 10/10 times. And he wont win any headers, but thats not his job. He got 83 stamina, and it seems like he got 93. This guy never runs out of stamina, he can last the whole match, no problem.
  • Defending - Tragical.

Perfect CAM

I packed David Silva in a guaranteed TOTW 14 IF pack. He is untradable, but even if he was tradable, I wouldn't list him in the Transfer Market. He is a true beast at passing, his passes reach the targeted player 95% of the time. His shooting might seem a little low but as I use him with a Hawk chem style, his long shots turn out amazing. He has amazing positioning and what I really like is that he makes amazing runs. He pu...

under rated

to be honest he is one of the best CAM's in the bpl. This is mostly as he is good on the ball and can make some excellent runs ad well as make good interceptions between defenders and he dominates the midfield I use him at CAM with harry kane and mo salah for strikers and he is the person who makes the through balls and passes and overall keeps the ball moving.

Huge boost over base card

A huge upgrade over the base 87, this 90 IF adds an element of pace which makes Silva almost unstoppable in terms of midfield effectiveness. With his base card, I went 104 goals and 97 assists through 237 games and felt the only lacking element was his speed. Even with hunter, the base Silva really can't be effective against most high level midfield players based on speed alone. That said, with the bump to 74 speed on the I...
