Many Everton fans have been giving their thoughts as Phil Kirkbride has claimed that Mason Holgate may be dropped against West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.
However, the Liverpool Echo journalist suggested that the defender needs time to regain his form, which caused quite a stir among some members of the Goodison Park faithful.
Should Mina play ahead of Holgate or Keane at Everton?
Holgate has made costly errors in recent games for the Toffees, dwelling on the ball which allowed Ollie Watkins to score for Aston Villa last week, while two lapses of judgement alongside Michael Keane allowed Harry Kane to score twice for Tottenham in April.
It seems as if many Everton supporters have simply had enough of the defender and subsequently do not want him to start in what is a crucial match away to the Hammers as Carlo Ancelotti’s side chase a European finish.
Everton fans on Holgate claim
These fans made their feelings clear after Kirkbride made the claim on Twitter, as they were particularly critical of Holgate’s recent performances.
“His performances lately have been shocking. He should be dropped. No room for sentiment”
“Probably get slated for this but he should be sold in the summer. We need players with a winning mentality”
“Needs a change of attitude & mental aptitude. Too cocky & thinks he’s better than what he is. Only seems to turn it on when we play a bigger team. Frustrating, had his chance, definitely should be dropped for the rest of the season unless injuries hit.”
“Need to cash in this summer, he hasn’t improved, makes too many mistakes & terrible on the ball. Anything over £10m would be a great deal for us.”
“Liability, attitude got the better of him”
“He can have all the time he needs at another club. Nowhere near good enough and stagnated.”
