Yeah this had been stewing for a while apparently.

Good depth and one for the future.


#3

I don’t know anything about him so while there’s no point being upset by his signing equally theres no reason to be excited either.


#4

This is going to happen.
We are the kings of the underwhelming transfer.


#5

CB sorted, cheers.


#6

This will be great for him he’ll never even have to leave Bolton because we’re probably loaning him straight back.


#7

We won’t loan him back to Bolton. They’re in league one, no way we’ll be OK with that.

A pairing of Chambers and Holding for the future would be sick, given that they develop properly and achieve their respective ceilings.

Add Bellerin into that and we could hopefully have a very good back-line for some time to come.

Dependant on a lot of variables, of course, but one can still hope.

I know everyone is saying he’s one for the future, but he’s 20, not a kid and if he steps it up who knows, he might be able to step right in.


#8

With Chambers who is still young and Bielik with U21, I don’t understand why we’re following Holding. We don’t need a young CB for the future, we need a player ready to compete with the first team to build a long time partnership with Lolo.


#9

Well, given that Koscielny is 30 I’m not sure how long a partnership with him and anyone would be.


#10

Long time partnership for me is 2/3 years for our standards.


#11

One for the COC until january.


#12

The player wasn’t included in the squad yesterday and will not in the squad tomorrow. The deal is set to be completed soon.


#13

I’m so underwhelmed, I’ve fallen asleep.
:sleeping:


#14

According to a local paper, Bolton have accepted our offer for Holding. Medical terms completed tonight and now is ready to sign the contract.


#15

Do not want.


#16

Bolton fans speak very highly of him. I’m happy with this buy for the future


#17

Our 3rd signing for the summer wowsers, who said this club does not have ambition to win the Title.


#18

Looks close now


#19

For pure depth, it’s great to add another promising player in this position. Not that I know a great deal about him of course. However, the Mert/Kos fulcrum is an ageing one and I don’t see them pairing for 38+ games ever again, so it’s sensible to add young legs here.


#20

Per shouldn’t be starting at all if we are serious about winning a title, which we are not I suppose…
