Jay Dasilva

Started by Captain Ahmed,

47 posts in this topic

Jay’s currently competing against our own hugely promising young player, Lloyd Kelly. Kelly is currently captain of England u20’s and has been training with the England Senior squad. 

Each player has their own strengths, of course, Jay probably offers more in an attacking sense, whereas our young left back is far more solid defensivly. 

Earlier in the thread I saw there was talk of Jay’s height, and someone said he was the same height to our old LB, Joe Bryan. That’s evidently incorrect. Dasilva can only be described as tiny, and that was targeted recently against Hull, however he proved that he has good positional sense, which on the whole got him out of a few difficult situations.

I do expect Dasilva to be in and out of our team, rotating with Kelly, depending on the opposition and whether we will be able to play a more expansive game, or whether we may have to be more defensive.

Thanks for the information, it is good to see Jay getting some rotation minutes in the league now. Maybe in an ideal world (for me )Kelly is at left CB and da Silva at LB. interesting you mention his height, other fans seem to notice he’s smaller than his listed height of 5”7, which is small

Looks like B.City have a bargain , https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/bristol-city-chelsea-liverpool-transfer-2404130 and another transfer blunder by the board!

His height was always going to go against him and the exact reason why I thought he would not make it. Surprised that the board have agreed to sell him so early though.

He is a bit taller than Jay DaSilva, but most importantly he had already been tried and tested in PL. Jay has not and we are already skeptical about giving youngsters first team chances. He also has struggled to get in the Bristol City team too which indicates to me that it is also possibly a physical issue too as all the Bristol City fans seem to be impressed when he plays, however he rarely starts more than one consecutive game. I like him but don't think it will be a huge miss. Just expected him to stay on our books longer.
