Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter have been talking about one man after they picked up their first win under Sabri Lamouchi.
The attacking midfielder joined Forest this summer from Portuguese outfit Feirense.
He has started both of the Reds’ league games so far this season, and he managed to grab his first goal for the club on Tuesday evening.
The 26-year-old has gotten off to a bit of a slow start in the Championship as his average WhoScored rating in that competition stands at just 6.51, but he came into his own against Fleetwood in midweek, and many fans have been quick to say how impressed they were by him.
One supporter described his performance as sublime, while another said that he’s getting better with every minute he plays.
Home from the City Ground. Silva sublime, Sow solid and Figueiredo a force. Lamouchi said afterwards that some players impressed sufficiently for Saturday, said we’d have to wait to find out who…#NFFC

Tiago Silva appears to be improving with every minute in English Football ????????????????#nffc

Of course, the main talking point amongst most fans was Silva’s goal. He rifled the ball into the goal from close range after beating a man in the penalty area, and his strike seemingly wowed a number of fans.
Good result against a really well organised team! What a finish from Silva! #NFFC

Ooooh Tiago Silva! First win of the season and a good goal.

One supporter had a differing opinion stating that the 26-year-old was ineffective apart from his goal. That opinion was quickly shot down though as another Twitter user came to his defence.
Besides the goal he’s been poor

Tiago Silva wasn’t poor last night, that’s complete rubbish!
