West Ham fans have already got Declan Rice and Grady Diangana in their senior side having impressed in the youth teams, and now it seems the fans want to see Nathan Holland go down the same route. The 20-year-old winger scored the Hammers’ equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Derby in the Premier League 2, catching the eye of the fans.
Time to give this fella a go on the wing! Your classic skilful winger who takes people on! Nothing to lose, especially with Lanzini now out https://t.co/DwD5YfXG3C

It’s easy to understand why the Irons are keen to give the youngster a chance. At the moment, West Ham have absolutely nothing to lose. They won’t be going down and won’t be getting into Europe so the last four games they have to play are a free hit for Manuel Pellegrini and the West Ham players. In those four games, it really wouldn’t hurt to give someone like Holland a real chance, and the fans want to see it.
At the age of just 20 and with the ability to feature on both wings Holland must be worth a go? His goal against Derby County last night was sublime, jinking past players as he marauded into the box before calmly slotting the ball past the on-rushing goalkeeper. It was a big goal at a big time too, giving the pint-sized Hammers a point as they continue to fight for survival in Division 1 of the Premier League 2, and now it could be time for the youngster to be given a go in the actual Premier League.

No idea why Everton sold this guy @TheApexHound

With Lanzini injured again and Nasri and Wilshire not likely to feature again … put him in the squad for last games of season

Body movement and finish in this video reminds me of Ryan Giggs. If his half as good as him we need to give him some minutes soon.

He’s exactly what we need at the moment abit of positivity to lift the crowd by going past someone looks like he has a fair amount of end product Aswell as he’s scored a lot of goals at that level

Geezer looks class. His time should be now.

Gets the nod over Diangana in the squad for me, got a bit more about him. Would also play him over the likes of Perez.

The Hammers love the idea of seeing Holland in their senior side and will be desperate for Pellegrini to make it happen.
