    Silva or Van Persie

    Barca has 3 spots in their sights for strengthening in next season. One of those is a left winger spot and those 2 mentioned are the front runners.

    I vote for Van Persie simply because I see him as a more versatile player.

    Once we lose Henry we'll be the shortest team in La Liga with Silva on our team.

    Re: Silva or Van Persie

    I truly can`t believe you voted for VP. He is sooo not Barca material . But I don`t think that we need any of them. He is better on left flank and there we got "the new Henry" and of course Iniesta...Gai is going to be in a first team in a year or two. But if you would like to see more versatile players in Barca you should consider Lavezzi - He is good with both legs and can play on both flanks or in the middle.

    Silva by a mile. Younger, more consistent, less injured, plays Spanish League football, works well with Ineista and Xavi. He's the perfect choice

    Re: Silva or Van Persie

    Silva... they are both very versatile and quality players. But I don't want Van Persie for a simple reason; he is injury-prone and we cannot really afford buying players that would sit injured every few weeks.

    Definately Silva. Van Persie is prone to injuries.

    No doubt about it - Silva. Reallly poor choice by whoever picked RVP, why?

    It's not a poor choice; I think majority don't like Van Persie for his injury mishaps. His qualities are were never doubtful; he has great qualities.

    Re: Silva or Van Persie

    When he's in top form he's a real danger, but like everyone said, what's the use if he will out injured every few weeks.

    Re: Silva or Van Persie

    And another dilemma is how he would adapt to La Liga; he might prove a success or even more probable a blunder like Michael Owen, Woodgate and some others before.

    Re: Silva or Van Persie

    Loved rvp when he was an up and coming youngster..but as time has gone on he seems to get more injury prone and his attitude keeps falling. He is a spoilt player and wouldnt want him in the team for that reason. Silva understands much more the role of being a cog in a larger system. They are both very talented, with great ball control, will get on the score sheet a fair amount in a season (not as much as eto'o or messi, but enough to help us get by), speed, versatility, good passing. But silva trumps rvp on health, ego size and experience of la liga.

    In the world cup rvp was frustrated after the opening game that robben on the other wing saw much more of the ball that he did. He spoke out about it after the game. Is that really the kind of player we want?
