Luiz or Sokratis to make way for Holding?
Konaté and Tah...
Oh wait we forgot to spend money on actually good CBs. Yikes...
Probably Chambers and Holding. But that is still barely a top10 quality.
Luiz and Holding, probably.
One with Holding but the pairings are all **** imo
Not a clue. Feel like people are massively overhyping Holding, sure he looked decent before his injury but he can't have played more than 7 or 8 games in a row for us at any stage during his time here? Need to give him time.
Luiz and Holding purely based on the fact that it absolutely cannot be worse than any pairing involving Sokratis or Mustafi.
It's about getting a balanced pair, so ideally a 'reader' and a 'tackler' type. Luiz, Sokratis and Mustafi are all tackler types, so can't really play together. Today was a painful reminder of that.
Holding, and arguably Chambers, are the only 'reader' types we have, with only the former being at the requisite level to start, imo. Therefore, Holding should be a nailed on starter. Luiz and Sokratis to slog it out for the other spot. Mustafi and Mavropanos are irrelevant.
In a perfect set up we'd also have a right-footed RCB and a left-footed LCB, since this makes it easier to play out from the back. Luiz is two-footed, while Sokratis is more reliant on his right. Luiz should therefore probably get the nod, but in the end it's all about who strikes up the best partnership with Holding.
Pending how he retruns, Holding and one of Sok and Luiz
Luiz and whoever is least sh!t, which is probably Sokratis still.
Chambers should be an option, I’d go with him and Holding.
Holding and Sokratis comfortably for me. Assuming Holding comes back as good as he was before injury last year.
Luiz and Holding. Though I do think Bellerin returning and Tierney joining will help our chosen CB pairing.
Our central defenders are all roughly at the same level but I'd go for Luiz and Holding when fit because I think both are stronger on the ball than Sokratis. Plus, we should give the game time to Holding because he's young and can develop.
Depends on Holding and how he'll preform after his long term injury. If he back to the form of last season then i can see him start with Luiz
Sokratis and Luiz is technically our best pairing, even though it’s awful. Shows how bad our defence is. Holding was 3rd or 4th choice last season and he played in a back 3, being massively overhyped by some on here.
Can i vote for Holding and Chambers?
Laca - Auba friendship is working in offense, so chambers and holding should work in defense.
Yeah why is chambers not an option I take him and holding.
Holding and Luiz would be tasty, but they are both slow.
I'll take Sokratis and Holding until we get a good replacement for Sok.
Emery will turn any CB pairing into an a clown show I'm afraid.
