On a further note. If Holden has an amazing second half of the season. Will bigger clubs across the EPL and Europe try to sign him? Should be noted that Holden is loyal to Bolton, but if he has a chance to go will he take it?


He can definitely move into the CM a top 8 side in the EPL. I think he will move up as soon as possible...he knows injuries have slowed his career and he should take the chance if something comes up.

It would be nice to see him come on for the final minute or so to get an ovation from the stadium. It would be a nice confidence boost for him and the team. Such a positive young man.

I REALLY hope he stays healthy.

This is excellent news. Fingers crossed for the Gold Cup if he's ready.

I'm torn between wanting to preach patience and wanting to see him jump into USMNT asap. I guess we better wait and see how good he is once back playing full time.
For me, aside from qualifying for the World Cup, having Bolden back in the USMNT picture is my #1 wish for 2013.

If Stu is good to play then he is good to play. There is no need for this "be patient" stuff.

I am hapy he is continuing his comeback. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes a solid 10 or 15 minutes tomorrow. Good thing I don't have any classes tomorrow afternoon!!!!

Lucas Leiva would say otherwise. Liverpool's medical staff cleared him to play....he played in two games subbing out late in both, had two previous sub appearances...then the next game, got re-injured and was out for three more months. He should be sticking around 60-65 mins for quite a few games.

Sure....but I would air on the side of caution with Holden....he has been out long enough, what's the harm in slowly working him in for 1 month...none.

Especially on a team that really has little hope of promotion. Better to bring him back at a pace best for his health, and if they manage to keep him, get ready for a promotion push next season.

If he comes back strong, I don't see him staying at Bolton next year. He is too gifted to play at that level. Needs to jump into a middle table club in the EPL.

Will see what happens. It's all on Holden peops. If he feels like he is good enough to go more minutes then it's up to him. I never stated that he should be starting for the record.
I stated he could potentially play a solid 10 to 15 minutes tomorrow. I bet he is starting for Bolton by early February just a hunch.

From the brief video clips I saw of Holden's first performance, it looks as though he is still not moving fluidly. You can see moments where he is favoring his knee. Understandable given the amount of time out but I don't think he'll be ready for serious action either club or country for a few months still.

Came on in the 74th minute with team up 2-0. Looks like he'll get to go 20'. Hope he stays healthy
