Arsenal Fans Reckon They’ve Unearthed a Real Gem in Rob Holding

Arsenal Fans Reckon They’ve Unearthed a Real Gem in Rob Holding

Arsenal managed to stop the rot setting in on their Premier League season by winning at Middlesbrough on Monday night – and the club’s supporters are hailing Rob Holding.

The 21-year-old centre-back has been nothing more than a bit-part back-up player ever since moving to the Emirates in a surprise transfer from Bolton Wanderers last summer.

But he was called upon this evening at the Riverside, with Arsene Wenger freshening up his lacklustre side and opting for a three-man back-line.

He might be a lot younger and have a lot less experience than his team-mates, but Holding’s performance displayed wisdom beyond his years – and seems to have won over a lot of supporters:

World class? The new Tony Adams? It’s not like Arsenal fans to go a bit over the top on social media, is it?

Regardless of the comments, Holding did perform extremely well, and we’re not the only ones who’ll be deeply shocked if he’s not selected for Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final with Man City next weekend.

What do you think?
