The Second Coming
January 20, 2010
Amidst reports of many alleged transfer targets during this window, the actual signing of one Wellington Silva has gone a little unnoticed.
I like most of you know very little about this young man, again, like most of you, I too have seen his goal at Old Trafford in some youth competition.
The U15’s tournament was held at the Theatre of Dreams back in 2007 and hosted teams from all over the planet.
Our new Young Gun was voted both the player of the tournament and the most valuable player (yank for top notch)
However, a new YouTube video has hit our widescreen laptops.
The video below was taken from a youth team game involving Silva’s current team Fluminense.
It depicts a wonderful comeback that was orchestrated by in large by our new Brazilian wonderkid.
I bring to your attention the pathetically wonderful, urine extracting piece of skill and pure impudence at 2.20 on the clock.
He looks to be a frightening mix of Henry, Anelka and Wrighty… with maybe a bit of Limpar wing play added to the mix.
Silva has blistering pace, perfect technique for Wengerball, and plenty of tricks and skills to excite the Emirates faithful for years to come.
He displays a massive hunger and desire to be on the ball as much as possible and then make things happen.
Very reminiscent of a player oop norf. A Brazillian Rooney?
Ladies and Gentlemen… January 2011 will hail the introduction of the Second Coming.
