Benjamin White: English Virgil or also just blonde?

if your CB keep getting praise only for his passing and dribbling, you have a problem. Bit like your keeper getting praise for his distribution and never his actual saves

Good player, but he's one of the hardest players to like at the club, very bland.

Nothing about him makes sense really...he has a rich, upper-class face, but his arms are covered in tattoos...he's like a character, that some 11 year old created in their new copy of FIFA.

Our 4 CBs this season should have been...

Gabriel, Holding, Saliba and Mari (mainly just so he continues to annoy GDeep)

...could have had this, with an extra £50 million left to strengthen the rest of the team.

PS...still can't believe no one at the club told Arteta to **** off, over his treatment of William...we spent a ton of money on him, ffs!

If we’re being honest and we actually chose Emi over Leno last year we’d have had at least an extra 30M for a midfielder this year.

i really like these stuff from him yesterday just something fresh to have a defender who not afraid to take a ball forward with pace he did the same at 2nd half when we were struggling to create. we'll see alot from him doing that this season.
If we’re being fair, he was unlucky with the goal. He was close enough to get a good block on the ball nine times out of ten. His blocking technique should have been better though as he didn’t stick a leg out but the backtracking was fine.

Yeah it would have been great to step in and win the ball cleanly but that’s how penalties are conceded. The right thing to do is contain and that’s what most defenders do, it just looks bad when it doesn’t work.

It was 3 against 3 if he pressed Edouard he could've easily pass it to olisse or Benteke the only mistake Ben made that is he should have forced Edouard to weaker foot or closed down quicker. And these are not errors but he'll have to act better in these situations in future

Definitely errors. We should expect more from one of the most expensive centre backs on the planet. If Mustafi did the same thing we wouldnt see this rather lame defending of him. The truth is that White hasnt done anything to justify his price tag or even his place in the starting eleven.

The problem is if he presses he had no time to see if there was anyone running in behind he'd leave a pass on for.

The shot that Edouard ended up taking was a pretty low percentage one. Had an xG of 0.12 but he smashed it in centrally with almost zero margin for error.

I don’t think it was a terrible shout.

You think Mustafi was ever as good as White has been 🤣 even at this best Mustafi was covered in a nice Koscielny wrapper.

What 23 year old premier league footballer doesn't watch football???

This is the weirdest thing I've read in years.

Does he just do it for the celebrity love island side of it????
 

Maybe

White continuing the legacy of people thinking a CB can play CM cos they can pass.
I actually didn't see any special passes from him, actually, I think Saliba is the best when it comes to passing from the back.
I guess when you watch Tierney passing from the back, BW does feel like Pirlo of defenders
