"Conspirobollocks" suggests mistakenly that I know somebody who agrees with me!

The Arsenal link today?

I've not seen that, it was all my own work. Given it seems widely known he grew up a fan of theirs, I can't imagine the press letting that obvious link go until he's signed on the dotted line for someone other than us.

got my #11 shirt three days ago so it makes sense he's already off to Arsenal.  ::)

I think we can expect to see some minutes for Watkins vs Andorra on Saturday.
Build up his match fitness if anything else.
And maybe a goal or two!

Wow ollie wow. That performance was so poor from him. The amount of bad decison making and hesitation from him. Seems to be too comfortable being 1st choice. His performance for me should be dropped. Not working at all with him and ings. Out of the two ollies the one that should be dropped or not played up front

One goal all season. Not good enough

His strengths appear to be more suited to the lone strikerís role. Itís all a little bit of a predicament for him at present, however Iím confident it will all come good again soon.

Rather he play out wide as a 3 than central as a 2.

Does Ollie wear studs in his boots? I have never seen a player slip over as much as he does.

Agree with both of the comments above this (assuming I post quickly).

He is constantly slipping over which is mental. Seems like that could be sorted quickly but it hasnít been. Heís also looking totally lost in a 2, well behind Ings in my view for general contribution and effectiveness, plus his confidence to shoot seems totally shot.

Needs to start the next game on the bench, awful technically and poor decision-making. His only positive right now is his closing down of defenders.

When Watkins was on a dry spell last season he never looked low in confidence. Always looked a good player. He doesnít seem himself at times this season.

Probably that baby keeping him up all night. 🤣

It was his decision-making yesterday which concerned me: when to pass, where to pass ...
He needs an extra touch and seems a little ponderous. Whether this is because he's conscious of which space to run into relative to Ings, or whether it's something else. Maybe, it's not having a winger either side of him which is inhibiting his thinking ...

I was useless for weeks when my wife had our first. The shock of living off a few hours sleep a night hit me hard. I made so many cock ups at work I was lucky to keep my job.

My 3rd nearly did for me. I think the euphoria kept me going for my first, and I knew my job inside out. For my 3rd I changed jobs around the same time, and was all over the place, 100 mile journeys when I arrived and couldn't remember the journey I'd just done.
