I wonder when Tisdale watches him does he think it might be worthwhile having more players with similar attributes.

He has been a breath of fresh air. One of few players who excites you when they receive the ball.

Saw the goals last night and the hold up play, vision and pass from Watkins for Taylor's goal was superb.

He's obviously full of confidence but he's looking great at the moment.

Had a great game yesterday.
He's also full of the confidence of youth - sometimes that leads him to take on one defender too many, but he has plenty of time to work on that.
Another good product from our youth set-up. I'm not knowledgeable enough to know if he will go on to greater things, but he's fun to watch at the moment and a great asset to the team. Top marks to the club for bringing him through.

As I've said in another thread and in the report from yesterday, he is just a bit of decisive decision making away from being the real deal - there were a couple of times yesterday where he tried an extra touch where a pass or shot would have been a better option, but that is something that will come with experience. Looking better with every game, we've got a real prospect on our hands yet again.

Maybe he was looking at Stockley?

That was the suggestion (a hack's twitter feed), but Ollie wouldn't have gone unnoticed.
