Jenas as a football analyst is a joke.
He needs to stick to the One Show and even then I think he's out of his depth.

Christ even Dermot Gallagher agrees he shouldn't have been sent off.  Not often he goes against the ref on ref watch.

And here he is defending Dele Ali for diving, the bloke is a gigantic throbbing bellend.

You'll have to wait until hell freezes over before Jenas calls Harry Kane out for diving. 'Being clever' is what that's called apparently.

Maybe Ollie should take a leaf out of Harry Kaneís book. Or most other players books come to think of it.

Go down like youíve been shot and wait till you get the decision before making a miraculous recovery. Give it the Fernandes scream for added effect. Would the ref have sent him off if it looked like heíd got a serious knee injury?

Trouble is, thatís not Ollie, or his personality.

This needs to get bumped back up to page one. What a superb player. Outstanding first season in the PL, but most of all a really brilliant attitude. Well done again Ollie

In terms of Kane, anybody see the challenge where he grabbed Mings arm then threw himself to the ground to make it look like Mings had hauled him down to try to get him a card?  I thought it was right out of and should have been called out.

Agree. I wouldnít swap him for any other in the league and that includes Kane ..on the basis he manages to keep himself injury free. Thoroughly likeable chap too.

🔥 Ollie Watkins has scored 14 #PL goals this season, the most by a player in their debut season in the competition since Alexandre Lacazette in 2017/18

Yep, I mentioned it on the match thread. He was miles away from the ball so engineered a free kick, the mouth breathing bellend

I was quite worried about buying him at the start of the season, just because there's a big step-up from the championship so fair play to him and the Manager for taking the plunge. 14 goals is a great haul in your first season. Not to mention the assists.

If it wasn't for the VAR lines of doom, and losing Jack for so long I reckon he'd have easily got 20 goals. With some improvements around him next season the sky is the limit.

That's actually a really good point.  Any other season he's getting pretty close to 20. Which for a forward who doesn't take penalties is ridiculously good (not that we get many!).  The only players above him in the scoring charts who aren't their teams designated penalty taker is Son and Calvert-Lewin.

also imagine if he had Grealish playing all season, Barkley on some decent form consistently and decent wide players?

he'd have got 25 easily.
