Hopefully he remains healthy and can get a run in both the March friendlies. Many on these boards believe he could be a regular starter for the USMNT, but the only way to know for sure is to see him and how his style gels with the core of the team (Pulisic, Adams, McKennie).
IMO he's still likely only a transitional player destined to become a back-up once Ledezma and/or Mendez start getting 1st team minutes @ CM, or Reyna/Weah at the wide attacking positions. However with his ability to cover multiple positions and his ability to play physically when necessary will still be a nice option to have when playing some of our opponents in CONCACAF.

My thoughts on Holmes' 40mins against West Brom

He's not a winger and looks very uncomfortable there

Doesn't know when and where to arrive in the box on crosses

Doesn't know when to tuck in or press on defense

Bad give aways in bad spots

Wasted Derby's best chance of the game being too casual on a 1 touch opportunity

He tried to turn under pressure in bad areas and passed back with no pressure in good areas

I believe in this kid but that was awful

At his worst I still rather see him than a Roldan or Lletget

I thought Holmes paired well with Sargent when they had the chance. Our offense looked lively. This is also why I am against playing players out of their club position, unless it is an emergency situation.
