Nathan Holland came off the bench to net a late ‘wonder strike’ equaliser against Brentford B on Tuesday night, which saw the game finish 2-2.

After winning just one point from their first two games, West Ham United are in need of inspiration and masses of fans are calling for Holland to get a promotion into the first team.

Declan Rice is the latest Hammers academy graduate to become a crucial member of Manuel Pellegrini’s squad, and these supporters are desperate for Holland to be the next:


Fellow promising winger Grady Diangana broke into the first-team set-up last season and is spending this season on loan at West Bromwich Albion, so there’s space for a new exciting winger to burst onto the scene.

His goal on Tuesday was something to behold and I urge you to go and watch it if you haven’t already; it’s further proof that Holland has the confidence and ability to join Pellegrini’s enticing attacking options in the near future.

A loan move to gain valuable first-team experience could be a good move first, but many will have faith in him to make the step up straight away.

Should Nathan Holland join the first team?

Yes, he's good enough.

No, he's not ready.
