what score did we win,

see the u18 won the derby against gerrards RS  3-1

1-nil.

And yes, I believe that Holgate has been the best of a sorry lot at CB, in addition to our youngest.  That combo means he should be starting at least almost every week, getting used to playing his natural position at the Prem level.

Preferably not next to Ashley Williams.

So now we are slagging off Big Fat Sam for freezing out poor little Holgate?

He has played 2 games in the prem under Koeman (both as RB), 2 under Unsworth and 7 under Allardyce.

Not slagging Sam off at all, Holgate is a far better player than Ashley Williams though

well you would think that, seeing as Sam Allardyce is saying this season is over and build towards next season, if he actually wants to do that, the youngsters need to fucking play. not players who the fans dont want to see, or who wont be playing week in week out next season. ( the Morgan Schneiderlins and Ashley Williams of this world)
Unsworth has a 100% League record at home
Norwich 3-0 15th May 2016
Watford 3-2 5th Nov 2017
West Ham 4-0 29th Nov 2017
To Be Continued.....

But that is the point. Why drop a kid who has been your best Cb so far. Why destroy what should be our futures confidence all because your training analytics show that Williams headed the ball further than Holgate from a corner. Bunch of crap

His whole approach seems very much geared towards making sure he gets his pay off in the summer by keeping us up. Zero risks and a £6m pension top up. Despite what he says his approach doesn't seem to be in accordance with him planning for the future, with his obsession with telling us we need to get to 40 points.

Clean sheet, Funes Mori and Holgate!  Won me $275, as well.

You bet proper money on an Everton reserve game?  Are you actually mad?

Good to get Funes Mori back. Whether heís good enough is subject to debate but heís a £20m defender in this market.

For one, OF COURSE I am and I'm surprised you even have to ask.

For two, I clicked on the match in my Sportsbook, and they were paying out 2.75 to 1 odds (when the score was 0-0 in 35th minute), which seemed absurdly favourable to me.  So I put down a hundred on us, what the fuck.

Is Barnsley's U23 side some kind of behemoth?

I will give Allardyce a tip of my cap if he's actually being strategic and plans to play Holgate and Funes Mori together the last 6-8 weeks of the season.

Would bet heavily against that, though.

We really do have the biggest selection of average CBs going.

No idea if they are or aren't, but the fact you didnt either and risked $100 on it shows how crazy it was!

I am mad as a hatter, and 2.75 to 1 on the backs of FuMo and Mason, my inner maniac won out.

Been on a bit of a gambling rush from Saturday's college basketball anyway, so ride the wave and whatnot.

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.

Dignity does not consist in possessing honours, but in deserving them
