Ings has looked woeful the last two games - he's got to hit the target with both his first half chances today.

There's also the fact that Ings is at the wrong end of his career and Ollie's only going to improve over the next few years as long as he gets the right coaching.
Yes but Ollie is 26 and Ings is 29 so there is not a lot in it and Ollie should be at his peak now which he probably is so I am afraid he may have some possible refinement but not a seismic change left in him to turn into a prolific goal scorer.

I canít see a bigger club taking Watkins. Heís too hit and miss for a big move anywhere. Way too streaky.

West Ham aren't a bigger club, but they might have him.

If Watkins leaves, we will regret it.

I agree and I get the impression Gerrard feels the same.

tormented the City defence today - but loses any sort of composure if he has to think when in on goal and turns into an Agbonlahor Vassell hybrid of panic.

He needs to fine tune his game in the summer if he wants to stay first choice.

The thing I struggle with is that his first touch is poor and its not improving, why?

The thing I'm struggling with is that it was fine last season.

It wasn't though, it was always rank. He got more through balls last season from Grealish that he could run onto. This season he has had to work harder with his back to goal and it has exposed his rotten first touch a lot more.

If short is August 2021 onwards then you have a point.

Yep, cheerio because he's not been as good as he was last season.
