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.

Very good surprise

I quite enjoy trying the new totw players every week seeking for a beauty that usually is completely ignored and split in the mass of those bunch of 80-82 rated players we get every week.So ive tried this guy here and well i cant say that im disappointed. He's got a really decent pace IG (dont let the numbers fool you) and his defensive stats are enough for a rb. his height (1.86m) combined to his strenght an...

Good alternative to florenzi

I used florenzi in my calcio a bundesliga hybrid for a very long time. Eventually I got annoyed by florenzi's poor touched when the keep threw stuff to him and just with his play in general. So I decided to switch to De Silvestri. When I got him I wasn't sure if he would be able to live up to what I had before but he has been a pleasant surprise. With a shadow he defends quite well and is really quite rapid. He has been gre...
