Fantastic for Watkins.
I think he'll score a brace or a hat trick.
He seems to threaten that every game.


You seem to say it every game. He's scored more than once in the league for us in four games, out of 120 played.

If you count missing sitters as threatening to score 2 or 3, it's true.
That's a misleading statistic. It's selective as much as its fact.
We have to focus on the here and now. And under Emery
Ollie scored two hat tricks this season.
Last season, he scored record goals in consecutive matches away from home.
Of course, credit Deano for bringing him to Villa but he's a different level under Emery, propelled to international class.
 
We go into games with Watkins playing, expecting him to have opportunities. And expecting him to score.
With a game against Spurs, he'll both be afforded and engineer chances and be given service. Then, in four games in ten days, he will have opportunities, whatever his minutes.
If it's not against the Spurs defenders, Its not beyond him and not unsurprising if he does score a brace or hat trick in games before the end of December let alone more coming before the end of the season.

He's not done himself any favours tonight despite the insipid play of the team. You can't miss gilt edged chances like that at this level. Didn't help we scored within seconds of him departing either. I suspect Wilson will get a chance next time Kane is out.

Thought he was poor, missed a decent opportunity, and he must have set an England record with the fewest touches in 60 mins (12)

Emery needs to employ a heading coach, to help Watkins improve that area of his game

If he was poor good, they're less likely to play him and injure him and he's the last player we can afford to lose.

Yeah, same here, mate. It doesn't really matter how well he plays anyway. That diving twat Kane will always be first choice.

I'm at the point now where I want England to lose every game. A squad rammed with wankers galore, playing for teams I'd like to see liquidated, with fans I'd like to see catapulted into a river full of crocodiles.

Southgate is a massive penis.

He didn't have a great game but none of the attacking players did much really. I thought hooking him off before any of the others was a bit harsh personally but that's Southgate for you, the same man who felt the need to play Maguire in both games.

He's playing Maguire now purely out of spite, just to make a point.  If it wasn't directly affecting one of our lot it would be laughable.

I haven't cared about England for about 20 years but I'm rapidly losing interest in international football full stop.  It's all a load of tedious bollocks.

Kane is rightly the first choice, but if he gets injured or suspended then we have very little international experience to bring in. Having qualified and playing against Malta and North Macedonia it was a perfect opportunity to give a couple of strikers the chance to lead the line - ideally with the confidence that they will play the full 90 minutes. Not looking over their shoulder for Kane to appear on the touchline.

Exactly this. If you can't put some trust in the players you've called up then what's the point in picking them? Pulling Watkins off 13 minutes into the second half just to try and  score a goal just lacked imagination.

A heading coach.  Blimey.  What next a chesting it down coach.
