A Season in Statistics Player-By-Player: Wellington Silva

He came, he saw, he fell over

Here we are. It's the summer and we are looking back at each and every player who made an appearance for Bolton Wanderers during the 2015/16 season.

It's time to look back at the contribution of one Wellington Silva

Appearances - 22(8)

A signing that came out of the blue, with Neil Lennon securing the loan of an exciting Brazilian winger from Premier League pansies Arsenal. After a few years on loan at various Spanish league clubs, Silva headed North full of promise and quinoa.

Minutes Played - 1211

A riddle wrapped in a mystery wrapped in an enigma. Welly went through spells where he was indispensable, and others where he couldn't get a kick if he tried. His effort was always appreciated, and his skills were similarly evident but the application and the focus could often be criticised.

Goals Conceded - 52 (2.36 per game)

Similar to Dorian Dervite, Wellington doesn't have a defensive bone in his entire body. Tracking back is for the weak, you see.


Points won per game - 15 at 0.68 points per game.

Passing - 75.6%

Dives - Innumerable

Bookings - 3

Red cards - 0

Overall Season Performance - E

A thoroughly disappointing campaign. Completely the wrong type of player for our side and for the battle in which we found ourselves. Looking back, we would have been better off going for someone more reliable, who could pitch in at both ends. He'll be fine at Arsenal, because they're all frills and no knickers too.
