I must admit I am veering towards Holgate not reaching the levels we hoped he might if he carries on this current trajectory. He's not a natural right back and not ready to be a centre half yet. I think he, like a few of our lads, needs to be playing regular football a level below where we are at the minute. To hone their game, build them up, get them experience and grow into young men. Too many of them still look like young boys at the minute and are getting exposed most weeks, which isn't great for their development.
We have a really talented young group that are being asked to mix it every week at the top level and it's not working either for them or for us.
