Style of Play[edit | edit source]
Reynolds is two-footed and plays as a central midfielder. He is equally comfortable in an attacking or defensive midfield role. Empoli FC scout Luis Pomares described him as a 'little Stefan Effenberg'. Former coach Bobby Howe said of Reynolds; Johnny Reynolds is a very talented player. He has skill, confidence and creativity.  After string of impressive performances in 2016 Joseph Mondello reported; A true box to box midfielder, Reynolds’ ability to alternate between defensive duties and surging runs forward helped the Sounders control the midfield in both matches. 
He has more recently been deployed as a defensive midfielder by coach Virgilio Teixeira (footballer) at ADO Den Haag.
Reynolds is also a free kick specialist. In his final academy season for Seattle Sounders, of Reynolds' seven goals,  four came direct from free kicks.
