Rob Holding: I'm Sorry He Didn't Cost £55 Million

Most people seem to realise that he is just not very good. He has been very overrated by many for a long time. His supposedly great performance in the final in 2017 and his run in the side when we went on that unbeaten run under Emery probably explains why, even though that run was very underwhelming. The fact that he is English and seems very likeable helps him too, and many Arsenal-fans probably still have this hope of another Adams. I know many say he will have a solid career in the PL for the likes of Burnley or WBA but I am not so sure. Very likeable guy but I would sell for anything above 5M.

I personally felt that he was having a good spell under Emery, being a starter until that injury at Old Trafford. These types of knee injuries can take something out of a player as well, we've seen it with Walcott and Bellerin too.

Anyway, can't see him being a starter for us with these defenders we're signing. Could keep him as a cheap backup, or sell to a club like Leeds. I'm indifferent about either option really.

How've you come to that conclusion? Holding was 4th choice, was used after Mustafi and Mari got injured.

That’s only because Arteta was easing him back in after ACL. Now that he’s getting closer to full fitness he’s one of the first names on the team sheet.

Not a single comment in here. Perhaps the only one from our starting line up today with no comments. Let's give the guy some love. Played well I think.
I agree. 3 finals with him in and we won them all. I think he is a solid player, needs to improve but in think Arteta can help him. I would keep even as backup

Only got raped once yesterday. He weren't terrible, but he is terrible. No future for him here so we need him gone. A loan isn't ideal, but will do for now.
