I think he looks very promising and capable, his runs are excellent and he finds space where others can't.   

Cracking explanation here as to how Ollie developed by his manager at Exeter (apologies if it's been posted before):



Thanks Mark that's a great post.


Hadnít seen this before. What a great bit of coaching.

Just watched it myself - brilliant post. Like that Paul Tilsdale chap, comes across as a really good coach.

Great stuff. I like that he says it's about assuming they've got those basics about where to stand, where to run in their position etc before finding a way to give them back their natural spontaneity.

Just outstanding. This weekend as I watched some of the forwards on other teams (that realistically we will compete with for a mid table spot), I honestly didn't know if we had a Calvert-Lewin or Ings or Raul etc. Fuck this lad is every bit as good. Just fucking awesome today. He tore to shreds a current England CB

Never in doubt.
Disappointed he didn't score the one-on-one.

Couldve had 5. His running, dropping, going wide, coming short, over the top, holding up confused the fuck out of them.

In his post match interview, he said he should have done better for the one on one and needs to improve! We have a jewel here

Fabulous player. Pacy and mobile. We've struck gold. With players like Jack, SJM and Barkley this kid will fill his boots.

I wanted him in when we were linked but I thought he'd be one who needed easing in - some cameos from the bench, one for the future etc. Instead, we've only gone and got ourselves a proper line-leading Premier League striker. And I love the attitude of being pissed off with himself at the chance he missed instead of dwelling on the three he scored. He's going to get an absolute bagful for us, defenders must hate playing against him - he's a proper pain in the arse who never gives them a second's peace. Outstanding.

He'd already impressed me without scoring, but today he got the goals his work so far had deserved. I did worry he might just be a poacher and not much else but he's very good all round, has a bit of nous, works the channels well and reads Jack very well. I think he'll hit 20 this season. He'll make a few too and I think there's a certain benefit he has from having been a wideman before. I guess like Henry. If he's half as good as Thierry, he'll do alright.
