(Original post by mau5) Silva is so much better than anything we have in the premier league it's not even funny. I guess you could have Hummels, Pique or Komapny to partner him then.
Well thats an overstatement.
I think he's a great great player but has had his phases off form during this season. Lets not forget when he was on form, he had great talent all around him to compliment his style of play.
For me, Wilshire is ridiculously class and impressed me more in his full season last year than Silva did this year. Obviously there is no basis for comparison since Wilshire is inexperienced and is more of a box to box player but still, he's a midfielder and I'd rather a fit JW in my squad personally.
Some of my favourite duo's from down the years at Chelsea...
Duff and Robben cutting in from either wing and rotating was a sight.
Carvalho and Terry, best centre back partnership to grace the Premier League?
Perhaps a slightly odd one - but Ashley Cole and John Terry. Have a fantastic understanding between each other on the left side of defence.
Ashley Cole and Malouda in 2009-2010 under Hiddink, were something else on the left wing.
Nowadays, watching Mata with anyone on his level would be decent.
