So, after 2 and a bit years of dodging the covid bullet. It finally got me. Not being able to taste or smell is really, really weird. I apologise to the proprietor of the curry house for referring to his food as 'flavourless'.
Watkins does so much he creates space for others. Ings I bet loves playing with him. Watkins does souch work and harassing the defenders. He misses chances and his first touch is often not great but that's Watkins. You get good and not so good but always max effort
He works hard. Fierce competitor. Always moving. Always looking to receive the ball. Always threading through passes. Aside from the first few months , when he plays he creates chances, good good quality chances forwards thrive on, balls played into space and through the lines. He's everything you want in a football. Ability. Work rate. Attitude.
...but he didn't bang on in for 25 yards 7 years ago for Liverpool at the kop.
Didn't he score the 7th most goals for a striker last year?
With all due respect, ChesterDad, you need to stop living in the past. Attacking play these days is far more free form than it used to be - just look at the top 10 highest goalscorers in the league last season - only 2 out and out and strikers there in Kane and Vardy.
If you don't see the value in what Ollie did yesterday, i.e. having a big hand in both goals, then I don't really know what to tell you. It's not 4-4-fakhin-2 and smoking a fag at half time anymore.
