What is there to even say?
This man is an absolute machine. I have played with De Silvestri in a 4-3-2-1 for 33 games so far, and let me tell you, he doesn't disappoint. For roughly 12k, this man is an absolute bargain at the moment.
Now, I know what everybody is thinking: "Pace in the 70s on a fullback, YUCK!" To that, I say do not be deceived. (The card would look way better to most if the pace was only +1, at 80 ;) ) On anchor or shadow (I have tried both), not even the fastest wingers can pass this man with ease. He feels very quick in game, and his 84 strength allows him to boss his way up and down the field.
His tackling is absolutely delicious, his dribbling is great, and his crossing is absolutely INSANE. Honestly. He puts the ball on a silver platter for the attackers.
Overall, De Silvestri feels like the perfect RB for me, and it feels he won't be touched in my squad for a long time. It's so surprising to me how this man is so cheap!
Get this man while you still can, sit back, and enjoy his beautiful footballing abilities.
