I'm putting it out there.  He's a very good player and works very very hard. But how long until we get concerned by his lack of goals?

Not that concerned. Hes getting in the right places and hes been mugged off by two VAR decisions.

Wish he had been the one waiting for the tap in for Ramsey instead of being the one who crossed it.

I think he'd be more effective if he was alongside another out-and-out striker

Must be one of the most unlucky forwards we've ever had.

I thought he battled well last night and played good part in most of our counter attacks.

Should've had an assist aswell but Dias somehow from the ground scooped the ball past Ramsey when he was going to tap it in.

That was great work by Dias tbf.

That was great work by Dias tbf.

From what I saw the ball missed his sliding foot and then somehow looped up from the other foot and evaded Ramsey, many times you'd see a defender doing that clearence and it either ending up in his own goal or hitting the forward standing right by it.

You forget how late on in the game it was as two minutes later we had the joke goal so our gameplan was nearly perfect.

Mind you straight after Mings sliced an average cross and that somehow didn't go in. Was convinced we'd get a 0-0 from that point.

When you play the top teams small details like that  decide things. And VAR of course.

He's not perfect.  He's not the finished article.  But boy does he give it everything for the good of the team as a whole.  It's been many a year since I've enjoyed watching a Villa forward as much as I'm enjoying watching Ollie Watkins this season.

Totally agree, we're fortunately not reliable on a single goal scorer for the atm. I've seen enough of him so far to be convinced the goals will come. It's his first season in the PL.

He has the potential to be as good as Dwight Yorke was for us.

Can I saw, this all mirrors my view too.  I think he is magic and the goals will come.  His work rate is exceptional.

He needs a goal though. No better side than Newcastle to start filling his boots.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this lad is going to become top drawer and will play for England in the very near future.
Having Barkley back through the middle and Jack playing back in his more usual role out wide will help with him getting more goals.

Absolutely no concerns with Ollie whatsoever.
