I like him he's good on the ball puts a shift in every game and is a great team player

I just want to see him to trouble the goalie a bit more

when the ball goes wide to Watkins and he's about to deliver the ball into the box anyone else find themselves shouting at the tv 'what are you doing out there' he should be in and around the box more for me that's where the majority of goals are scored from

Re him being out on the wing, Exactly ! Youre supposed to be in the box son ! Having said that he does alright out on the wing, combines well with our other players out there, its just we need a snarky poachy selfish linekerey type whose heatmap of his position on the pitch is a burning red blob between the penalty spot and 6 yard box. Someone with the mobility of Big Daddy and the reactions of a Ninja.

He'll bang them in soon.
As soon as the service improves.
Mentioned last night, we're two first team players short of a top 6 team, both are wingers. Short that and we'll fly.
You're right Mark.  El Ghazi has improved, but while his shooting is miles better, his all round play and creating chances for others is still not good enough. Traore, despite the goal, is mostly just a liability. Barkley makes us a much better team as Jack then plays in one of the wide spots.
Big question is Barkley's fitness: this hamstring of his has taken 6 weeks thus far; 7 if he were to play next week.
I agree he would provide us with the chance to play a more balanced team.

6 weeks is pretty standard for a hamstring. It's better to be fully confident that it's healed than to risk him too early and lose him for another 4 weeks when an extra week may have been the sensible approach.

Now the dust has settled, probably being a little unfair to Ollie.

Currently, most of his service is coming from either a 'shoot on sight' El Ghazi or Traore (who blows hot and cold for me). The only one I can accuse him of where he should have got on the end of it was the Cash cross, but considering the work rate he's put in this season, the lad can be excused for being knackered.

Barkley helps Ollie - Helps create much more space for him and gives defenders something else to think about besides stopping the wing play.

Do desperately need another option - Ollie needs a rest, as well as competition for places, so that when he is struggling for goals, someone can help share the burden.

Keep doing what you're doing Ollie - The goals will come!

I think when he scores, the flood gates will open.

The only thing that could stop him was the local bookies.

Something he’s put on social media “Block out negative, focus on the positive”.

Doesn’t sound so good.

Just sounds like a generic quote that many sport people put with their social media posts.

Saw that on Instagram but didn't read anything into it.

Ollie XG is 9 yet he has scored only 6 goals so underperformed in goal scored this first half season i think olloe will soon be scoring and improving his numbers to even out as he's 3 behind what he should have scored and over next period of season like to think he'll increase his goals by finishing his chances.
One match recently he was desperately unlucky did everything but score.

He'd be two goals better off in 99.99% of football's history and the woodwork hattrick against Palace was just one of those days. Now, like Gabrielle, he's ready to rise again (sorry, I was subjected to the first Bridgid Jones Diary film last night).
