    Ollie Watkins

    Hit or miss gentleman opinions please ?

    only seen him the once, but first impressions, he looked a slightly timid almost ungainly leggy young colt,

    but watching him, seemed have a decent first touch, when he decides to use it a nice turn of pace, a bit of power and physical presence about him most

    importantly an eye for goal. needs to seriously up his work rate, forget his age and inexperience use his assets impose himself more. With gentle handling and a

    touch of patience maybe just maybe we could have a serious 'player' on our hands.

    I went to the Weston pre-season friendly, youngest ever City team I had ever seen, and to be fair Weston are not top opposition, but Ollie was the best player on the park by a country mile in my opinion

    Thought our Ollie was the only positive from our display against Argyle

    Think he needs to run at defenders more, seems good on the ball though

    Agree with that, he's not the finished article but he could turn out to be some player if he works at it. Another good exciting prospect and hopefully he can get a few 1st team games this year.

    Only seen him against Flum u-23, but from that game the other thing I think he brings is that their right back was tearing us open for the whole game until Ollie came on near the end to keep him occupied, he looks like one of those players who keeps a defender focused on defending rather than getting forward on the overlap.

    I saw him on his debut at hartlepool. Impressed with what i saw and took his goal well on tuesday. Hopefully can turn into a decent player with us.
