Benjamin White: English Virgil or also just blonde?

Signed for 50M and just 23 years old with (hopefully) lots of room to improve. Do we back him to be a rich man’s David Luiz or will we be thinking about what could have been with Saliba?

It’s a lot of money on a replacement CB for a team that struggles to score goals and the boy will be under a lot of pressure.

If he can bring this to Arsenal while also being good defensively then this signing is a success IMO

Somebody on A-M, I think it was Mitch, kicked off the A-M myth (and everyone knows A-M myths are facts until proven otherwise) that Arteta and/or Edu particularly like/prefer to sign blonde players.

As you would expect we A-Mrs have taken these claims very seriously which had led us to now question whether any player we sign (actual hair colour is irrelevant) has been signed due to their footballing ability or due to said blonde preference. When you look at the signings of Ramsdale, Ødegaard and a guy literally called White you do have to give this theory a bit of thought. Just keep an open mind.

Poor Ben looks and plays like a pitch invader whose mate Smiffy bet him a tenner he wouldn't run onto the pitch and who can't quite believe the stewards haven't removed him yet so runs about aimlessly giving it a go until someone realizes he shouldn't be there. That someone is me, sadly and not the manager. He's not going to be a good CB. Too small and doesn't have the strength or the leap of a Ramos or Silva to offset it and be comfortable in the air. Luiz was good in the air when he was young as well so the comparisons to him are really quite funny. The only real possibilities for White to come good are at RB or maybe as a DM but either way the fee is a tremendous waste of money for a player ill suited to play the role he was actually signed for. Whomever scouted him and came away with the idea that this was not only a PL level CB but one worth spending this sum on is a fool and needs to be sacked.

Against relegation fodder where he looked helpless and lost almost every aerial duel. It's not even like a Mustafi situation where the problems are entirely mental. You can see that the kid is physically not up to the task, offset by the fact that he's also just not very good. It wouldn't take more than one game to see that my mum can't cut it at right back. I've seen enough from young Benjamin. He's basically a slightly faster, much weaker Chambers with an enormous price tag. Yuck.

Didn't Mitch say that AM hates "blonde" players, pretty sure that's how the blonde thing started.

Still kicked it off 🤣 just in the opposite direction to what he intended
