After being released by Arsenal for being ‘too small’ Matt Holland went on to make 202 premier league appearances over spells at Ipswich and Charlton, and earned 49 caps for the Republic of Ireland
Holland will be remembered most for his consistency, playing 223 consecutive game for the Tractor Boys, only missing one league match in the six years he was at Portman Road, and that was due to being called up for international duty!
