Dam onions. He can definitely go another year at this level and I think we'd be daft not to offer it him

David Silva reflects on a career that exceeds ‘wildest dreams’ as Man City stay edges towards an end via @OneFootball. Read it here:

It’s a reminder that all good things come to an end. My mum would have been sad today, her favourite City player by far.

Thanks for everything David. Amazing memories. Such a pity we can’t be there today to give you the send off you deserve.

Bow out at the top:-)

He is going somewhere else I believe, but not a top league.

Hope he comes back as a coach or something.

I will tell David about wildest dreams. I use to have them when I supported City through the sixties, seventies, eighties and nineties and early 2000's.

These were extreme ludicrous dreams, I dreamt we would someday have a player of the magical quality of Merlin playing for City in a team of world class players. He has been the cherry on top of the cake (which was my dreams).

He certainly looks well enough at the moment to go on another season but he knows himself. 10 years of fantastic service and not a single problem.

Was hoping that he would have scored the 100th goal, would have been appropiate...

What a marvellous player! Spellbinding to watch, even if it was several years before I got the chance to see him play live. How lucky we've been to have him. Better than Colin Bell in my humble opinion, and that's certainly saying something.

And, as Gavin said, a model pro. Never complained, no substitution tantrums, not a bad word about anyone (well... not until he writes his autobiography at least).

Thank you David. You did us very proud. Your name will be spoken in awed tones by City supporters who saw you play for many decades to come.
