I don't understand Allardyce's treatment of Holgate. It's an admittedly small sample size but he was our best defender during his run at CB and did nothing to warrant being dropped.
It's irresponsible, both short-term and long-term, to give minutes to Williams instead of Holgate.
I donít think itís about form.
I think itís the fall-out and subsequent odd radio silence from the MSM regarding the Firmino incedent.
Either the club donít believe Holgate, or Holgate is pissed off at the club for not rallying behind him, or the club have bowed to pressure to Ďrestí Holgate whilst it all dies down.
It canít be because Rondon nearly scored a couple.
