Jay Dasilva

Started by Captain Ahmed,

57 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.

He appears to have once again fought his way into the starting XI at a club he was originally on bench for. Can’t underestimate that..

I do know what you mean and as a rule I like tall defenders but he is getting a lot of good reports

But with Bristol having this pre agreed option to buy how can we keep him?

I honestly don't know enough about the kid to argue his case.

Only thing in my head is IF he is better than our current options them play him.

You know me I want a complete sort out from top to bottom. The majority of the 1st team gone.

Look at our current top 3 options. Not one of them with a contract past the summer apart from Eden and we know that story.

This right now is the best time to do it.

I know it might sound plastic saying it but I don't give a toss. We need to buy a whole new team almost.

Ridiculous and weak to think that we need to change a whole team.  It would probably impossible,  just childish talk .

To introduce youngsters will backfire if things don't go right . This is a club that is built on success,  we are not the Spunks who have time as they are not under pressure to win anything. 

To build organically,  my god we have one of the best youngsters in the world joining in the summer. To hear this weakness can only be the mentality of the western effete .My grandfather was at Stalingrad and would turn in his grave .

this assumes Eden and CHO leave

Players to keep (or elevate to first team)

Kepa

Bulka

Rudiger

AC

Ampadu

Fikayo Tomori

Reece James

Kante

RLC

Pulisic

Higuain (1 more year on loan, the cut him loose)

Tammy

 

the rest

SELL or just let walk

 

they are not good enough, never will be unless Barkley pulls a miracle or we are stuck with Kovacic (which is not a disaster if we stop fucking playing him at AMF)

yes, Azpi, sell whilst we can still get £30-40m or so, he is a spent force (that is what happens when you play a RB 4,100 to 4,700 minutes a year for years on end, probably 9,500 or so the last 2 years alone)

Right now we have a team without a ounce of fighting spirit and only a bit more brain power and skill to use it.

The majority do not and most have not now got what we need to bave at the club right now if we intend to make any sort of contention in the PL let alone across Europe/

This is no kneejerk reaction. I don't give a fuck cause I'll still be at the games. But blimey I've seen us play bad and lose but we fought as hard as we could while losing and ran ourselves into the ground doing it.

This has been coming for awhile.

Your Grandfather (and mine) would be throwing themselves around at the sight of this bunch of prima donnas strolling about with their hands on their hips looking at their boots feeling sorry for themselves not at me wanting to kick their arses to the kerb!

Three Chelsea players in the team for Bristol City against Wolves at 1pm, FA Cup fame. Dasilva, Palmer and Kalas. Should be quite a good game. Interested in seeing Dasilva particularly.
