He is crap. He failed at Barca twice, he failed here twice. He failed at Sevilla. His numbers at Watford are shite. He’s genuine crap. He shouldn’t be because he has a lot of the tools but he’s done the square route of fuck all.
I’d much prefer Bernard though he’s not started great.
You say he failed at Sevilla but his stats were 1 goal and 5 assists in 17 games and for milan it was 4 goals and 3 assists in 17 games.
I also can't agree he failed with us the first time round as he got 2 goals and 8 assists in 26 appearances and is on 6 goals and 4 assists in 20 for Watford
I agree that he didn't make it at Barcelona but let's be honest none of our players would of got into that team so it's an unfair comparison.
Bernard is currently 3 assists and no goals in 23 games so I'm not sure why you think bernard will be more effective ? He's neat and tidy but not shown anything like being an effective prem player which is probably why Silva doesn't start him these days.
