As I mentioned, the only way that isn't overridden as an error of judgement is if the Ref decided that Watkins had lost control of the ball before the challenge. If he told the VAR that was his onfield decision, then they decided it wasn't a clear enough error to call back on. However if he said shoulder to shoulder or any other decision, then VAR should have called it back.

We tried him on penalties and he wasn't very good with them.

Just think, if he was our penalty taker he'd be on 18 goals. ;)

So the question is, will Watkins step up for penalties in Douglas Luiz's absence? He has two games for the opportunity! In his pursuit of the Golden Boot and the desire to score, he will undoubtedly be fancying them. I think Watkins would have  a confident mindset and worked on a technique for scoring penalties, as he has in his overall game.

His penalty record is :9 taken 4 scored 5 not scored

Some leader. Demolished Gabriel today. And the Dwight Yorke esque chipped finish at the end that we often questioned if he had it. Wow

It is why I stated I trusted him with penalties now. His confidence is through the roof.

Didn't Footy predict early in the season that Ollie would score 20 league goals?

Ollie needs four goals for 30 in all comps.

Potentially 9 games left to play.

And there's apparently a conversation to be had about whether he goes to the Euros.

I dont get the love in for Toney.  He cant even get in the Brentford side ahead of Neal Mauphey (however you spell it).
