Was thinking this during the game last night.
I always thought he was all skills and no brain to utilise them. But to my surprise he is almost the opposite.
He reads the game very well and shows a lot more understanding than I have given him credit for.

Its almost as he possesses the brain that John Stones thinks he has. He is not as skillfull though but rather a clever footballer with a little less skills than the other way round.

Genuinely didn't think he had this run of form and potential in him, which is always lovely when a young(ish) player surprises you and really steps up when the club is in a period of crisis. Go ed Mason. You've been an absolute credit to yourself in this rough period.

I remember when we bought Holgate, word from the Barnsley fans was that he was going to be better than Stones. If he keeps improving at this rate, he will be

May even keep Gbamin out when he's ready to come back.

I remember that too. He's had a tough career so far and was pretty much put on the scrapheap by a couple of our managers and loans that didn't pay off for him so well (WBA I think was one). But he has stepped up extremely well this past month or so and it looks like his hard work is paying off.

I haven't heard about John Stones in what seems like an age. Does he still play for City?

Makes me feel genuinely relieved when his deputy is Michael Keane.

Stones has been injured - again. Based on the last few games Holgate has been playing far better than the last few times I’ve seen Stones who really seems to have gone backwards. I’d take Holgate on current form to Stones any day.

He was brilliant yesterday. Looked very assured on the ball, which we need our CBs to be against teams that concede possession to us.

With defenders you can only learn by making mistakes. The thing with Holgate I always find he has the pace to resolve his own mistakes. Whereas with Keane his mistakes often lead to goals. He should be part of the main CB until summer probably

Showing my lack of knowledge about Gbamin there, rather than over-hyping young Mason. All I know about Gbamin is that he is also a very young player with room to grow.

I keep forgetting we've got Gbamin! He's back soon isn't he?

😂

I know about as much as you, my friend. I just really, really want to see what we got. Especially considering he was slated to be our "replacement for Gana." Talk about damning a guy before he begins lol.

Oddly, turned out to be one of my favourite players of the season so far. Reminds me a tiny bit of when Coleman first came into the side, we needed a bit of youthful drive/optimism at that point too and Holgate has added that to both CB and DM.
