I think Holgate was at fault for the goal, but he was also being asked to do way too much, being next to a stationary partner in Williams and a RB who doesn't move/react well defensively in Martina.

When you combine that with the fact that we haven't been able to get him CB time in less stressful/preparatory settings at the Prem/Cup level, I think it's rash to judge him.  He's VERY physical at RB, I think he should be fine at CB.  He'd learn a great deal next to Keane and/or Jags.
