This morning we asked our fans on Twitter what they thought about our very own Merlin, David Silva.
"I think David Silva is magic because...
...he can do things with a ball that even David Copperfield couldn't do" - @mattingham87
...he makes you scratch your head and think "How did he do that?" - @John_Marsland
...he wears a magic hat, and when he saw Eastlands he said 'I'll have a bit of that'"- @rm23286
...his skill and vision can't be explained by science or modern language" - @GarethVoke
...he's full of tricks and it seems he creates optical illusions on the pitch... Amazing!" - @mankmanuk
...when he has the ball nothing is impossible" - @SheilaNT
...he plays in a difficult position and somehow makes football look too easy" - @d_jc89
...he's like a human version of Speedy Gonzales" - @JoeSchoey
...he just seems to "wingardium leviosa" the ball to where ever he wants it" - @01cravend
