Early days in FUT 20 and Bernardo silva is fast becomming my favourite winger thus far. Ladies and gentlemen I ask one simple question: Where are you going to get a player with these stats for such a cheap price? The answer: Nowhere. What you get for (at the time of writing this) 22k is unbelievable. A player that is exceptional on the ball, great passing stats and absurdly high stamina. You have a player that can make chances for your team all game.
"But his pace!" you scream incessantly. "How can he be good without pace?" Well that problem is easily solved. Slap a hunter on him (like I did) and you're cruising. 88 sprint speed is more than enough at this stage of the game to shift quickly and 95 acceleration is great as well. You will often get runs in behind the full backs to either make take a shot or use his great crossing to set up your other players.
Personally, I love him as a winger, but you could easily play him centrally as well to be a CAM. My only gripe with this move is that he is physically very weak, so getting pushed off the ball by defensive mids is going to be a guarantee most games. He can't head a ball to save his life as he's tiny and when tracking back to defend he wont be much help as he has abysmal defending stats. For these reasons he should be left to the wing position imo.
If you come up against pacey fullbacks, set him to come back to collect the pass instead of play in behind and you'll almost always out dribble the opponent, such are his agility and balance. The 4 star skills feel extra slick, but the 3 star weak foot can make you more predictable in your play. This is something to keep in mind.
People will underestimate this guy purely based on his pace stats and you're going to punish people with him regularly because of this. His shooting is more than adequate with the hunter and I found his left foot to be reliable in the box for finishing chances, that being said, I normally use him to play Rashford in on net, but again, if your striker is being marked you shouldn't be afraid to shoot with Bernardo.
So in summary, whether as a creator or a player to finish the chances, Bernardo Silva shouldnt be overlooked. Pace, whilst important, is not everything. The hunter chem style is your friend here. Give him a go and you wont be dissapointed. And worst case scenario you have a cheap high rated player for an SBC later down the track.
I don't know why no one has done a review of this man. I bought him for my new weekend league squad, but I doubted. Now, I have no doubts. I used him in an 4-2-2-2 as a right CAM, and the greatest con was his pace, but it was not really. He es very good with the ball, the high statistics in dribbling are true. With the other 3 attackers being speed dribblers (Rashford, Ben Yedder and Zaha as left CAM) Bernardo has converted in the playmaker I think every team needs. He distributes de ball very well, his dribbling is amazing and he's the player with most assists in my 11.
Extremely good dribling
Not that bad pace
Good long shooting (better than the stats)
Stamina (I don't know why he's quick the 90 minutes)
Phisically very weak (extremely weak, every LB or RB is stronger than him)
I used him as my right cam in game in a 4231. The way I used him was mostly l1 dribbling and cutting inside, aswell as going on the outside and doing driven crosses to my vardy. I have to say, he is amazing. I put a deadeye on him, to improve his lacking finishing and shot power, and he was banging goals in from all angles inside the box. He is not amazing at longshots but if you green time a finesse from the edge of the box, 9/10 its going in. His dribbling is amazing, and completely made up for his pace when on the ball. With the ball at his feet, he feels as good as any player you've tried. I sometimes sub on sancho and, on the ball, bernardo is faster. The only thing I didn't love about the card is that he can't really run into space. You play a long through ball to him and he'll either get outpaced or outphysicalled by the fullbacks. Just don't use him as a winger. Amazing stamina aswell, can sprint the entire game.
