Rob Holding (16)


#281

Good performance again


#283

21 year old playing like 30.


#284

Running out of words for this guy. Just so good. :heart_eyes:


#285

Is this stat correct? We conceded 4 to Liverpool! Doesn’t sound right to me.

I rate the guy though, future captain (maybe)


#286

I thought it sounded a little too good to be true, including the Liverpool game with conceded 10 goals in 12 which is still pretty decent but nice catch anyway.


#287

What??? You know what happens to our captains, they leave in a season or two or the more recent trend is, they hardly play. So, I’d rather he is never captain.


#288

Like a veteran!


#289

That was more tongue in cheek.

I’d actually rather we didn’t put any pressure on him for a while and just appreciate that we may have found a future star. But knowing our fan base, he’ll be booed and harassed the minute he makes 1 major error. I don’t even think that backpass incident on Sunday was entirely his fault either, Kos should take some responsibility for that.


#290

Didn’t catch the game but love the encouraging plaudits he has been receiving! Good on you Rob!


#291

Don’t think that’s a fair comment. The fact that there was hardly any mention (at least I didn’t come across any) of that back pass on the forum is proof that most of our fans aren’t that fickle. Let’s not forget, we have had some clowns play for us in the CB position and they have never been booed.

The only thing that worries about the situation with Holding is that he is being hyped up so much by the Arsenal fans and some pundits that it might affect the way he thinks and plays. A bit like what happened with John Stones. I just hope he can keep his feet on the ground and realise that he has a heck of a long way to go and that key to being the best in the world is consistency.


#292

Rob “Tony Adams” Holding? :giroud:


#293

Been really impressed with him in a back 3

Think thats the only way he will get games sadly because when we play a aback 4 AW obviosuly prefers Kos and Mustafi


#294

Mertesacker is nowhere and I think Gabriel might be moved on so he’s moving up the pecking order pretty quickly given his age


#295

What a prospect this kid is, smashed it again today and gave Arnautović a taste of his own medicine.

Holding is the future and definitely needs his own smiley, make it happen!


#296

Holding>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Stones


#297

Love the full blooded, strong tackles he was making today. He wasn’t messing about and I loved it when he went all in against Arnautovic. Proper CB.


#298

I loved the way he took a clever yellow on Arnatuvic without a second thought. Looks way above his age at the moment.


#299

Holding, Mustafi and Koscielny could be a very strong unit, even more so if Chambers is able to build on his potential.


#300

We’ve got one of the 3 top English centre back talents of the next generation.

Holding, Keane, Maguire?


#301

Stones!
