Watt gets thumbs up from Leeds

Watt gets thumbs up from Leeds

Other than searching for stats, new Owls loan recruit Sanchez Watt is a bit of an unknown quantity, so here Vital Leeds editor Daz gives us the lowdown on the Arsenal loanee.

The Gunners forward spent the latter part of the 2009-10 season on-loan at Elland Road and the whole of the 2010-11 campaign, giving Leeds fans arguably more of an insight than fans of Watt's Premier League parent club.

Here are Daz's thoughts on how Watts will do in the blue and white of Wednesday.

'Sanchez Watt will offer you a number of options. He played mainly for us out on the wing but I think his preferred role is more forward,' he said.

'He has a fantastic engine and he is not afraid to put in a tackle.

'He never really got a consistent run in the Leeds side. He made 32

ppearances during his two spells with us, 19 were from the substitute's bench, and he did seem to pick up a few injuries.

'I would personally have liked to have seen him return to Elland Road in the summer when it was rumoured we were once again interested.

'He has been scoring for fun for the Arsenal reserves this season, so he's a lad full of confidence.

'I think he will do well for you at Hillsborough as long as he's getting

lenty of time on the pitch.'

Watt has been in scintillating form for Arsenal Reserves so far this season, scoring seven goals in nine appearances. He was an unused substitute in Arsenal's League Cup fourth round victory over Bolton Wanderers.

As a Leeds fan I have to agree withy Dazza. He deserved more of a run than he got due to Graysons reluctance to trusdt in youth. He can be a bit reckless in his challenges and certainly wont go through the pain barrier to play when he has an injury but got bags of talent, a fair turn of pace and seems to have developed an eye for goal. Need to keep the ball on the ground for him though and big lumps forward isnt his game.

I've said before we need pace and creativity on the wing - I see this guy as the logical successor to JJ and a good stop gap for Madine. If we can keep hold of Marshall as well we will be in really good shape for an automatic promotion push. Am I being too optimistic?......

Another Leeds fan here. Sanchez always gives 100% and was well liked at Leeds both for his attitude during his loan spell and his play. A likable young man with plenty of talent, just what you`d expect from the Arsenal youth setup. You can also follow him on twitter and become part of team Watt lol. Great loan signing for you.

Another Leeds fan here - and this one lives down here in Sheffield these days - If you dont want him I will gladly give him a lift to Elland Rd every weekend - he's got bags of talent but is a bit fragile for L1 football (typical wenger baby) but was hoping to see him at Leeds again - as long as he makes sure you outpace the blunts I can live with him being at wednesday

Yeah, definitely did okay for us for a season and a bit at ER but didn't get as much time on the pitch as he (and we) would've liked. sure he'll do well for the Owls. And here's the chant... "YOU WATT, YOU WATT, YOU WATT-YOU WATT-YOU WATT!!!"
