    Neither Watters, the club nor the fans can hold their head up.

    Poor from all sides.

    A move was best for all. Move on and forget about this one

    What did the fans do wrong??

    Never heard any dissenting voices in the stadium when he played which wasn't often - frustration generally with our lack creativity but not directed at watters specifically

    Heard rumours he was off to Saudi Arabia for £300m.

    Remember the early stages of last season when some fans on here were continually claiming that Watters' movement off the ball was good? Very funny. He was hopelessly out of his depth at this level. Looked like a rabbit in the headlights.

    Watters started just five game in five months at Barnsley last season. Therefore, it's a surprise they've come back in for him. Getting him off the books is a triumph for City. If the club has managed to get any sort of a fee for him they've done very well.

    He moved like a broom handle. Although may i be the first to say (after he has scored three in five during December) that we never played to his strengths, didn't give him a chance, he didn't get enough service, was left isolated, and not even Messi could've scored in 'that' team. Three pager-Haven't we seen enough

    Had his chance. Did nothing with it. Good riddance.

    I don't recall the fans giving him a hard time.

    I think it's right that people wanted to give a young player trying to make a big step up every chance to prove himself at this level. I would prefer that to the opposite.

    he had enough chances though and was t able to shine, he looked like he was really feeling the pressure at times. hope he does well for Barnsley

    Four goals in five games started for Barnsley is pretty decent.

    Utter rubbish as usual. Typical of the way he was treated by some so called Ďfansí down here. He was popular up there last season and scored some important goals. He didnít play more because he picked up a knock but was also sent off, so missed some games. He actually played 19 times (incl subs),scored 4 goals and was there four months. Still only 24 as well, so he has a chance. Didn't work out here but wasn't given much of a chance.

    I dont think his movement was that bad, it was just when he actually received the ball he looked like his legs were all discombobulated.

    Good luck to him, hopefully he can get scoring goals.

    His movement was poor. He was always stood on his heels. When the ball went to the wingers (which was the whole tactic under Morison), he was stationary in the box when he should have been breaking his neck to get to the front post for the cut back.

    Watters isnít good enough. That isnít his fault. Good luck to him.

    Do you really think he would have been a regular starter there?I don't

    Not quite. 1 goal in 5 starts, 3 as substitute. Thanks to a brace coming on against MK Dons, he had a better goals per minute rate than any of their other strikers. He still failed to score in 16 appearances.

    surely those are the kind of things that can easily be addressed with good coaching? like it's difficult to change how fast you are very much for example, but surely anyone can be coached to run to the front post when the ball is out wide?
    he'd not long come from non league and I've heard it said elsewhere that our coaching wasn't upto much.

    Getting ~£250k upfront is akin to the Zohore to West Brom fee , a minor miracle.

    Best for all parties, he was finished here with the Morison treatment, good luck Watters.

    Didn't he make a laughing-type tweet or something?

    I do. Twitter was and still is rife with it.

    The fans in the stadium werenít the best with him either but he had himself to blame by the end.

    There was one game where he tried to dink it over the keeper, if that went in he might have had the monkey off his back for a bit.

    Will be interesting to see how it goes for him

    Agreed.

    Watters' apparent "movement off the ball" was rather like "Madine's assist", both of which were entirely fabricated by fans desperate to see something good in sub standard players, at this level.

    That said, I do wish him all the best, and well done to the club for getting a fee. That is truly amazing business if true.
