Not about ratings but....
I was interested to see Da Silva included as one of our subs. I never realised he was that highly thought of - I assumed he was much further down the pecking order.
Matty - any explanation ?
He has done well at times but, going by what little I know, I wouldn't exactly call him one of our "star performers" at youth level. Its a tricky one to try to explain, as I didn't know much about him before last season, but I think part of it may be because of his versatility.
As I said in another thread, he first broke through as a striker before dropping back into an attacking midfield/ left wing role, before dropping back again into a deeper, central midfielder, whilst recently this season he's played as both a centre back and a left back.
That could have been part of the reason, or he is actually highly thought of and we just don't know it!
