There were a few occaisions where he made the wrong runs when we had an attacking advantage in player numbers.

He was mentioned by Pep G. So hes getting recognition from opposing managers as to what qualities he brings to the team.

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?

Youre all welcome.  Now for my next comment.  Dean Smith - is anybody else concerned his not won us the title?

AqqqI liked that he attacked the q6 yard box, I do not like him dropping deep to be involved in play.
He is a great talent and has bags of potential.

Sorry been away. Pep was pretty complimentary about all the forward power but commented particularly on Watkins strength and hold up play.

As Jamie Carragher said a number of times last night its not all about goals as his all round play is excellent. Deano knew exactly what he was getting, as he did with Ezri and just look at how he is flourishing.
I look forward to many seasons of goals from Ollie.

He's such a down to earth lad too.  Very humble, speaks well when interviewed.  England squad beckons.

I think he's been a little bit too 'nice' at times this season, almost like he can't quite believe he belongs at this level. Which he absolutey does, he's got all the talent and work rate in the world. I think he just needs to add a bit more of a ruthless streak. Hand out a bollocking or two if another forward doesn't play him in etc.

He was trying to point out something to El Ghazi as they both left the pitch. Looked like he was telling him to play him in, perhaps referring to Trez's late effort.

His finish for the offside goal was excellent.

He's very Vardy like in my opinion. He plays off the shoulder and for 90 minutes he runs the centre halves and the full backs. Down the channels, left or right, through the middle, he is a non-stop nuisance.

Vardy is obviously become very prolific, but the man has more devilment than Ollie. If he can add that to his game, then he will improve further.

The worry is, he is so crucial to how we play, that we need somebody as dogged as him as back up. Yes goals count and 7 in 17 is good and puts him on 15 for the season, but the effect his running has cannot be ignored.

I just came on here to say the same. I was wanting him to play it across the box but smashed it low with his weeker foot right into the corner. Great finish.

Not just the strike, the half yard he made to get it away was top drawer too.

Hopefully that ruthlessness will come as he plays more games and scores many more goals 🙂
