Happy 39th birthday Gilberto Silva. Integral part of the invincibles; a true defensive midfielder.
What do you think Gilberto Silva, Lass Diarra and Alex Song were?
Fernandinho makes lots of dirty tackles and he goes away it just like Gilberto silva
Ohh god is fernandinho related to gilberto silva and Roberto Carlos

well did mention Petit before but also used to like Gilberto Silva as well
yeah but he did have that physical & big presence that a DM should bring to the table, but did like Gilberto Silva
One of the best DM's i've seen is Makelele for Chelsea. Not just saying this either, But Gilberto Silva for us
Arsene has lost it tbh. Did he buy Viera and Gilberto Silva himself?
are you telling me legends like Makelele, Gilberto Silva were controllers?
Krychowiak would probably be the closest thing we've had to Gilberto Silva if he signs, albeit he's a bit rougher round the edges.
absolutely the last Proper leader we had was Gilberto Silva
too many changes already tothe team. jus keep experienced Lucas. he'll be our Gilberto Silva ...
from a reliable source mate, wenger recalling Gilberto silva to play this weekend for experience in the back line. LOL
Hmm might get a @ dedicated to Gilberto Silva or Vieira. What do you think?

Arsenal have not had a solid anchor man since Gilberto Silva!! Tough to compete without one..
Gilberto Silva did well. Flamini also had a good season before leaving for Milan. After that it's been horrendous.
Though without the natural pace, trickery & knack for goals, is the best Brazilian pugilist and enforcer since Gilberto Silva
We need a strong dominant midfielder like Gilberto Silva, he was absolute class, a great ball winner.
ManCity have bought a defensive mid almost very season...we haven't got a proper one since Gilberto Silva
he was Brazilian. Solid performer along with Gilberto Silva.
we lost and Gilberto silva and arsenal lost the momentum to win trophies
he has yet to replace Gilberto Silva from about 8 years ago and Vermaelen from last year.
Gilberto Silva was the guv'nor, wernt he
but I'm also for bringing Gilberto Silva out of retirement. I should clearly never be allowed to manage a team.
do you want to see my fb profile? Search for sullyvan Gilberto da Silva or
its embarrassing, i spoke to an Arsenal fan last week who insisted he was the perfect Gilberto Silva type. Mental ***
Neville : "Arsenal never replaced Vieira, Petit and Gilberto Silva" Neville again with brilliant insight. Winning away from Home is an art. But it takes extreme patience, discipline and a strong will power to win away from home. Not a single shot on target by United's $$$ forward line. Refs helped them massively in the last 5-6 games and opposition teams failed to take thier chances. But Saints were tidy It will tough to get Morgan now. Even the likes of Bayern might have been impressed with his performance at Old Trafford
Unreal Vidal is a DM.just like Gilberto Silva he is Pogba's shadow
forgetting we had Gilberto silva in dm. That's the kinda dm I rate.
Got so drunk i was sick, smashed my phone and the last thing i can remember was telling Ronaldo that was poker's Gilberto Silva.
Dinner in Rio with the invincible Gilberto Silva
never watched Gilberto Silva or Claude makalene or matic? Dejong ? You buy a DM to break up play first over passing
you won't be the next Patrick Viera, the next Gilberto Silva or the next Fabregas. You'll be Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
I think coquelin is so good, reminds me of Gilberto silva
Looking forward to welcoming Ozil back. Been missed. He's like the attacking version of Gilberto Silva. You don't notice all the good stuff.

The only arsenal player I ever liked before Jack was Gilberto Silva.
Francis Coquelin Is like Viera , Gilberto Silva And Paul Scholes in one, it's incredible.

Coquelin in the middle of the park like a young Gilberto Silva
Arsenal still looking to replace Lauren, Sol Campbell and Gilberto Silva.
I think we'd do great in Europe if we had a Gilberto Silva in the side, that's been missing with years
Lovely, lovely win for the Biscy today... and myself giving our best impressions of Vieira and Gilberto Silva in the middle.
Bazil has not had a genuine Volante since Gilberto Silva retired. Lucas can be the Volante for Brazil if not for his injuries
Gilberto silva was good. Fantastic. But vieira replacement is the missing link..
If there's someone we didn't replace it's Gilberto Silva.
Gilberto Silva set to join the Arsenal coaching staff. Nice, now get Pires, Henry and Bergkamp too. Build an Invincible core in our staff.
Just watched 100 Thierry Henry goals. But how good was Gilberto Silva 👀🔥

Spurs Legend Glenn Hoddle Surprised By The Make- Up Of Arsenal Midfield It has been reported that Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle is surprised by the make-up of Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal midfield. He wrote in theMail on Sunday: “Arsene Wenger was a hugely important manager in my career at Monaco but there is one thing that has puzzled me about his Arsenal teams in recent years. “At Monaco he was very clear about how we would play. We had two strong midfielders in Marcel Dib and Jean Philippe Rohr: solid players who were fierce in the tackle. They were good players but they also made sure our back four were protected. “When he went to Arsenal, he did exactly the same with Patrick Vieira and Emmanuel Petit, and then Gilberto Silva. “Which is why I’m scratching my head a little when I see the players Arsene selects in midfield these days. Last March, in that infamous 6-0 loss to Chelsea, he played Mikel Arteta, Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade- Chamberlain. They’re all fine players but none of them is ...
Henry, Vierra and Gilberto Silva never replaced. There's always Glenn Whelan...
Basically he's Gilberto Silva with a 100x better passing range than Arteta and the strength of 2 Yaya Toure's
how is Coutinho, William, Oscar and LEGEND Gilberto Silva not suited for the PL??
Watching Michel Ballack talk about that game while staring at Gilberto Silva is reminiscent of Ramsay Snow having a chat with Theon Greyjoy.
Gilberto Silva stays cool as his nation is taking PKs in the World Cup but Bill Simmons can't hold it together for a Celtics draft pick.
And dem fi knw we not even drive car we look or called wagan we a BRAZIL from Roberto Carlos, Edmilson, Cafu, Gilberto Silva days!
Of course, but I was just talking about the attacking force. Roberto Carlos, Cafu, Gilberto Silva. All sex.
at 06 they still had Cafu, R. Carlos, Lucio, Ronaldo, Gilberto Silva, Kaka... And the best Ronaldinho
Which of the current players can measure up to Rivaldo, Ronaldo, Gilberto Silva, Cafu, Romario, Dunga, Roberto Carlos, Leonardo etc...
Özil/Walcott on the right and Ox-Chamberlain/Cazorla on the left side. Though Wilshere & Ramsey ain't no Gilberto Silva and Patrick Vieira.

Jose Mourinho's no.10 could be one of the main difference- makers in the upcoming FIFA World Cup tournament. / gettyimages.com Chelsea attacker Oscar, 22, could "make a difference for Brazil" in the FIFA World Cup competition which begins on Thursday, June 12 in Sao Paulo as the Samba Stars take on Croatia in the opening match. That is the view of a Brazilian legend, Lucio, now 36, but a physically- impressive defensive rock for some of the world's best teams including Internacional, Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich, Internazionale, Juventus and, of course, the national team, for whom he was capped 105 times by. A World Cup winner in 2002, Lucio also won a plethora of club-level honours including four titles across two different leagues (Bundesliga and Serie A) and the Champions League with Inter Milan. article continues below Considering Lucio competed in the same legendary Brazil team as Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Ronaldo, Gilberto Silva, Roberto Carlos and Cafu, it is high praise indeed when he singles out Os ...

GILBERTO SILVA says he thinks Arsenal can win the league this season, and he’s right behind their efforts to do so. He said : “I watched them against Hull and they played a really nice game and very good football. “It’s what we expect from them and I hope this year they can win the league. I’ll be here cheering them on and supporting them from outside England. “They have the chance this year because they are doing very well at the moment. It’s important after December and when they start January that they keep playing well, strong as they are and united as they are. “It will be very crucial but I am very confident they can achieve it this year.”

Was Arsenal's away win at Dortmund their best ever in Europe? Arsenal's 1-0 away win at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday will go down in the record books alongside Arsène Wenger's other famous European away victories. But which one was the best? PSV 0-4 Arsenal, 26 September 2002 Arsenal's record on the road was wretched. They had not won away in Europe in nine matches and 19 months and the previous season's campaign had brought a miserable yield from their travels of five losses and one draw. Fans were edgy ahead of a testing trip to Holland. Wenger, knowing the importance of ending a worrying trend, convinced Dennis Bergkamp to journey to his homeland to make his first appearance in a European away tie in nearly three years. It took Arsenal all of 20 seconds to set their record straight. Gilberto Silva won possession and raced forward to get on the end of a weeping Arsenal attack. The Dutch applied plenty of pressure but Arsenal withstood it before easing to a convicning victory thanks to a smarlty-taken ...
and come home Gilberto Silva, Ray Parlour and Frank Stapleton.
David Forde and Gilberto Silva as dual managers please
Get rid of my confusion mate . Who is Gilberto silva and who is James Nicholson ?
We got exactly what we paid for with Arteta. Gilberto silva or lehmann deserve to be ahead of him.
Mathieu Flamini has given the midfield a steel absent since the days of Patrick Vieira or Gilberto Silva.
I've been there for the first Arsenal goals of Gilberto Silva (v L'pool), Cesc Fabregas (v Wolves) and now Mesut Özil (v Napoli).
"Mathieu Flamini is proving the type of gutsy ball-winner Arsenal have lacked since Patrick Vieira or Gilberto Silva" Henry, mate
I've missed Gilberto Silva ever since he left. Flamini has brought back my love of defensive midfield and the solidity too
Flamini playing like Gilberto Silva used to
Flamini is the sort of player Arsenal has been crying out since the departure Flamini (yes himself) and Gilberto Silva.
I'll also take bergkamp, Gilberto silva and keown! ;-)
he reminds me of Gilberto Silva these dayz
Gilberto Silva being the Invicible wall.was eventually benched by Flamini.Many underestimate his abilities.Selection headache for Wenger
eg. Gilberto Silva and Patrick Viera at Arsenal. There's a huge difference in the roles they played and thats why it worked
All my players have good pace.. and then gilberto silva have to interfere.
yeah, never forget him playing against Brazil, nearly took Gilberto Silva out of it!
I had him in there, doubted myself so I checked. Him and Overmars went to Barca didn't they. Gilberto Silva was Vieira's partner..
Noticed "Gilberto" trending and remembered Gilberto Silva! He's on here. Yaaay.
Man possessed and determined to become an Arsenal legend! He wants same reconciliation as Vieira, Gilberto Silva etc.
Wrong wetin...I no dey watch ball ne?? "Wrong! Gilberto Silva"
Gilberto Silva "Name one brazilian footballer that can't dribble?"
Ino it's irrelevant for today but I would love a Gilberto Silva comp!

Flamini has taken over being the invincible wall from Gilberto Silva
I kinda trust an Arsenal with Arteta and Flamini in the middle though. Most trustworthy CM pair since Vieira & Gilberto Silva.
What do you mean pretend he's like a Silva? Gilberto Silva?
He's a crab, moves sideways. That's it. Nothing more. Is our Gilberto Silva...
A little aggression and Paulinho would be like a ' Gilberto Silva'.
Loved your article on Gilberto Silva, it really captures what makes him unique as a player and a person.

Over 50 Brazilians have tried their luck in the Premier League since it was introduced back in 1992, with varying degrees of success. Sports Mole from the UK has picked out five players from the South American nation that lit up the Premier League. There is the full list: Gilberto Silva, Juninho, Ramires, David Luiz, Rafael da Silva.

Who would win GSP or Anderson silva? « Gilberto Silva
I have a privilege in my life and I say thanks every day to God, To be captain of your country and have that responsibility is a dream come true. When I was young, shooting balls in the street at walls, doors and windows, getting shouted at, I dreamed and looked at the TV with Cafu and then Gilberto Silva as captain, just looking at them wanting the shirt, and now I had three opportunities to be captain of the team. I'm a lucky guy.' 'I'm not the leader, however Both guys (Ramires and Oscar) are more shy than me, so this is my personality. Always I try to show people who the true David Luiz is. You remember when I came here? I didn't speak one word in English, but I tried to show myself to people, that I'm a happy guy and wanted to make friends. - David Luiz
Arsene Wenger hasn’t had a true destroyer in the middle of the park since the days of Gilberto Silva and Mathieu Flamini, with even Alex Song seemingly more walkabout playmaker than defensively sound anchor man.
Bit of fun. If you could have any Former Arsenal legend in the side for tomorrow who would it be? Mine may be odd, but I'd have Gilberto Silva. Loved that guy.
My Goodness!!! this was all it took to be the best club in the world 2003-04: Jens Lehmann, Ashley Cole,Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires, Frederick Ljungberg, José Antonio Reyes, Dennis Bergkamp, Sylvain Wiltord, Thierry Henry, Ray Parlour, Giovanni Van Bronckhorst, Edu, Gilberto Silva, Philippe Senderos, Jermaine Pennant, Gaël Clichy, Sol Campbell, Nwankwo Kanu, Kolo Touré, Cesc Fábregas and not forgeting the then SANE wenger. 2005-2013: disappointment, disappointment, disappointment, disappointment, disappointment, disappointment,disappointment, disappointment...and of course the INSANE wenger...!!!

Brazillian dnt really mke it in england. Da last proper one i can remember is gilberto silva tbh.
I'd rather have Gilberto Silva playing left back over a certain other Brazilian.
don't you realise Oscar and Coutinho are both like 20, Gilberto Silva was much older. Think ahead sometimes mate
haven't put in performances worthy to be in PFA team of the year. Gilberto Silva did that week in week out
Not Gilberto Silva »RT ̥OK⌣ U want it dis, its d issue wif Arsenal's brazilians ryt"
but we were with Gilberto silva. I don't think those two are really from brazil.
What I'm getting at is, Ramsey's performance Vs West Ham was like a mesh of Cesc & Gilberto Silva. Defensively sound, superb passing.
As weird as this may sound, I saw shades of Gilberto Silva in Aaron Ramsey against West Ham. Played that 'invisible wall' role very well.
Gilberto Silva has to be one of the most underrated Arsenal players of all time
not a arsenal fan but Gilberto Silva, mainly because he was from Brazil
i wish Arsenal would re-build the spine of team and sign another Vieira or Gilberto Silva! 3.5m for Diame would be ideal!!
The way I play is a spitting image of gilberto silva. CDM. One of my favourite arsenal players
Arsenal need a Gilberto Silva And a Sol man.
I rated Gilberto Silva very highly because he knew to control the pace and the balance of our game while everybody slated him
Superb leader whenever he wore the captain armband"Gilberto Silva"

Cris seems to really be a great substitute for Gilberto Silva.
our midfield looks awfully short. Pun intended. Goodness we miss a Gilberto Silva type player. He was class.
