I haven't seen much hate, and I personally really like this signing. People just think it's underwhelming when United sign Varane, but I'm not too fuzzed. Ben seems a great guy with a level head and much talent.people hating on this signing for what?
because he’s “short”? compact people are lucky to me, because they can fit anywhere without much discomfort & last time I checked, 6’1 has never been short... only gripe is his shirt number
welcome big man, you got next
Well I read a lot of pages in their forum, and yes, some said that he is their 3rd best defender. They have good defenders, who are also a lot older, so it's not a surprise they defend a bit better.I haven't heard that anywhere, what I've seen is every Brighton fan celebrating getting 50m for their third best defender and hoping, not being confident or sure of it, that White develops into a top club calibre player.
If you think he has no interesting traits in his game, you clearly don't know about his game, and your conclusion is misguided about the height discussion.The amount of discussion about his height is quite the red flag. That's what you discuss in a player if he has no actually interesting traits on his game
In terms of improving the squad overall, his skills are his dribbling and passing. But is he any better than Luiz with respect to these things? Maybe he can play a higher line than Luiz (not sure) which will be benenficial but his CB partner at arsenal still won’t be able to.
