Christ we’ve amassed some absolute shite. Jagielka is our only decent centre half and he needs replacing soon as well. Wouldn’t be that bad but we’ve tied our shite to massive contracts

Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Holgate and Jags.


seriously how can you guys not rate Holgate? surely you saw what he had to offer last season.. yes he has a few mistakes.. but hes 21, learning his trade.. he needs a season of regular football to get those mistakes out of him.. look how many mistakes Stones used to make... and where he is now.

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.....

on Holgate, I think most people say Holgate plus one.
I am a fan but he needs a solid experienced partner. What he needs is jags of 4 years ago beside him :(

I want Keane to work, i really do, had huge hopes for him, but every time i see him play i lose a little more belief in him
He just seems to have disintegrated in the last 12 months

So for me, its Holgate and Jags, and hope that we buy an experienced, 25+ solid decent CB to play alongside him
As for Keane, I am afraid we might have to just take an even bigger loss.
I wouldn't be atall surprised if he ends the season on loan at Burnley or Rangers..........

He’s nowhere near Stones level at his age.

I would give Holgate and Keane a run together, since it's never really been tried for an extended period of time.

That said, still prefer to bring Mina in and start him with Holgate.

To me, Holgate is who you need to find out about first.  He has never had a run as a first-team CB, alongside a competent, consistent partner.  Give him that.  This is a transitional season, you should take this golden opportunity to see if you've got a real player on your hands (and I think we do, though not 100%).

Jags is a fallback option.  Starting the season with him would send a very bad signal.
