This is the new 'like a new signing'
Unless Benítez is feeding them Klopp's magic potion, it's very hard not to react with a big fat meh.
Holgate's got a lot to prove - when I think of him the first picture that comes to mind is that horrific pack-pass from late last season. This is the kind of cock-up players used to make before the rule change on back-passes and keepers being able to pick the ball up.
I really hope he dispels that quickly with many good tackles, etc, but until then forgive my lack of faith, I'm in full St Thomas mode.
The balance the books rhetoric is coming thick and fast now. Like or loathe the manager, a number of these individuals who will be "bigged up" over the next two weeks will lose him his job. As with previous managers, his faith will be mis-placed.
Sorry for the lack of optimism
