West Ham fans simply cannot get enough of Nathan Holland. The young starlet has been in sublime form for the Irons’ U23 side, and it cannot be underestimated how high his confidence must be given the way he’s been scoring goals for the club’s age group side.
There’s a third!

Yet again yesterday he found himself on the scoresheet, bagging twice on the night as the Hammers recorded a 4-0 win over Stoke City’s U23 side, and now the fans are desperate for Holland to be called up to the senior side as they want him in the team when West Ham face Sheffield United this weekend.
It’s hard to argue with them either. The pace and directness of Holland is lacking in the Hammers’ senior side at the moment, and with both Manuel Lanzini and Felipe Anderson down on form, adding the in-form and firing youngster to the squad has to be the way to go for Manuel Pellegrini.

Seriously get @NHo11and in that first team crying out for his pace and directness.

Start him next game.

He’s exactly like Anderson…… Except he takes people on, runs around, cares a bit, and can finish.

Please give @NHo11and a chance in the first team, what a young talent

Get this man in the first team right now

Getting boring now that he isn’t in the squad. Kid is class

The Hammers are keen on seeing more of Holland in the first team over the next few weeks, so it’s now over to Manuel Pellegrini to make it happen.
