No service whatsoever and still managed to fashion a couple of decent efforts on goal.
Heíll be ok.

Thought he did okay. must be already pining for the service he got at Brentford though.

Rubbish.

Really? You thought he had loads of chances created for him then?

I'm sure he'd rather be playing for Villa than Brentford.

well obviously, but he was basically living off scraps tonight or what he could create himself

He's playing in the Premier League now. He payed against the 4th best defence in the country. I'm sure he's satisfied with his lot.

The curling shot was decent but I saw a positive in the 2nd half when we worked an opening on the right, not much was going on in the box but he had the instinct to get infront of his marker quickly as Trez whipped a ball in, unfortunately it took a slight deflectiin and Ollie couldnt quite stretch to reach it but that quick instinctive movement will see him score a few I reckon/Hope.

Thought he played well. Smart runs, made a nuisance of himself and once he gets on the smart wavelength as more of those around him heíll be a real threat.

i thought that he lacked the physical presence when he was playing as a centre forward, and came more into the game once Davies came on and he played wider

Watkins will work if we get the ball in behind or give him good service. A lot of ball to feet and he won't get many goals.

Hopefully we don't ruin this striker, we've ruined a lot in the past.

Looked like hard work for him last night but he remained a threat and showed moments of class like his late effort.

Heíll play in more expansive games than that, sheff Utd must be about as hard a game a striker could face, so hard to judge his reaction to the step up in quality of defenders yet.

I thought he looked bright and efficient, he'll be a good 'un.

I agree LeeB. He has an air of class about him, and is always looking to get on the end of things. Would like to see him as part of a front 2, also.

He's going to love playing in front of a packed Villa Park (whenever that may be).

He just has that instinct that good strikers have.

Very unlucky with that effort at the end but for a few inches.  He's good and will get better.
