Immense today, absolutely superb. You could tell he wanted that 20th goal.

Unplayable today, he's getting better and better. Deserved a goal . MOTM.
Glad Steve Holland was there to see it even if his prick of a boss wasn't .

Watkinsí best is miles better than Bentekeís best, for me.

Take a look back at a sample of Benteke goals. The runs, the acrobatic finishes, the headers, the long range goals. He was fucking magnificent.

Thanks for thinking so highly of me that you think I donít regularly look back on such things.

He's genuinely one of the best in the league now.

Today his touch and hold up play was perfect. He was a threat throughout running off Zabarnyi (who's a decent CB) and two brilliant assists.

Great game without scoring. 18 months ago he'd have had a similar game where he'd have missed a one on one and his touch wouldn't be off so that's where he's improved so much and loved his celebration after the second goal.

Southgate needs to be sent to the tower and locked away if he chooses Toney and Rashford over him as that selection would defy all logic.

It wasnít a criticism of you in any way. It was conversation where tone is lost in text.

He's more than that, he's one of the best in the world now. Every summer since he joined, the conversation on this thread has been how we go about upgrading Watkins. Next summer it will be whether any of the ten or so teams in the world who are better than us might give us more than £100m to upgrade their team by trying to sign him.

No, I didnít really take it as criticism. Just letting you know that Iím a saddo that spends a lot of time watching old Villa matches.

Yep. Me too. More highlights of our past because much of the past three decades has been utter shit. And for a period 1995-1999 I didnít watch much Villa at all having moved to the US. The internet wasnít really a thing, PL wasnít the PL as it is today and couldnít be found on TV. I find watching that era particularly fascinating having missed most of it.

He was a monster today, a display of centre-forward play that would grace any era.

Recall Andy Lochhead giving a young Bournemouth CB a physically torrid time,eventually he lost the will to compete and Lochhead smashed in the winner.48,000 for a third division game.
Ollie's best game for us today.

Watkins playing off peak Benteke would have been joyous. Watkins is above Benteke now - his game has reached a new level.

Remarkable performance by Ollie.  Absolutely remarkable.  What a superb all-round striker he has become.  Outstanding.
