A Season in Statistics Player-By-Player: Rob Holding

Our LOV Player of the Year reviews the same review treatment as everyone else....kinda

Here we are. It's the summer and we are looking back at each and every player who made an appearance for Bolton Wanderers during the 2015/16 season.

Now for your delight and delectation here is Rob Holding. A man for all seasons.

Appearances - 26

Twenty six appearances. That's all it takes to go from a nobody to a somebody - from Bury on loan to the Toulon Tournament with England U21s. Rob Holding is the real deal. With David Dickinson.

Minutes Played - 2238

Rob had bounced around our reserve teams for a while without really making too much of an impression. A single game on loan at Bury last season suggested little as to what lay within. However, once given his chance in the Bolton Wanderers first team Holding strode forth like a giant rutting stag - sweeping the board at the Player of the Year awards and finding a place in all our hearts.

Goals Conceded - 54 (2.07 per game)

He has to take a portion of the blame for our defensive shortcomings, but of course it's a team game and I like Holding so I'll apply different rules here and absolve him of *most* of that blame. Word is that he is off to either Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur as I type this at the arse-end of May. He deserves it.


Points won per game - 15 at 0.58 points per game.

Bookings - 1

Red cards - 1

Overall Season Performance - A+

Roman candles that burn in the night.

Yeah, you are a shining light.

Yeah, you light up my life.
