We looked our most solid when Holgate had a run of games but we haven't seen him since.

He can't do any worse than Ashley Williams even if he was alongside Titus Bramble.

I might sound a bit mad but maybe having a bit of pace in defence helped and someone who can play out the back allowed us to retain possession a bit better.

It's fucking mental, if you were to grade our central defenders average rating against the number of game played Holgate would be top with the exception of Jags.

Gana and Schneiderlin both play better in the DM role when they are on their own. We just need to get the balance right because having 2 out and out attacking CM's we would be too open defensively.

It's one of the reasons Gana, Rooney and Davies was our best CM combination last year. Although Davies was in shite form the overall balance of the team was better because his energy allowed him to get forward and contribute to the attack without compromising our defense.

That's why I wouldn't be too surprised if next season our midfield 3 was something

Martina could do a decent job in the championship tbf. He's just not near the level we need from FB
