I said the top 6 will be looking at him. You can't be a young English defender who's that good on the ball and not interest the top clubs.
What I want from an owner: 1. Ambition. 2. Wage bill control. 3. Cut spending on loan fees. 4. Better scouting. 5. Get bigger fees for our best players. 6.No ego.

Even if we got promoted, I can't see us signing him permanently. Brighton would want too much money and we'd be blown out the water financially by most of the league.

Promotion would be our only chance of retaining White but a slim one indeed as we couldn't compete unless Radz sold LUFC

Oh well we'll still have Liam at the heart of our defence

Plenty of concerns pre-match regarding Wednesday’s front pairing of Nuhiu & Fletcher and the aerial threat they’d pose to our back 3. Ben White won 5/7 defensive aerial duels today, more than any player involved. Add 3/3 tackles won & 2 interceptions last Saturday.

What a player :supbo:

As with my initial thoughts on seeing Ben play in a friendly then at Bristol City he is so much like Rio when he was at Leeds

Started a little slow, out of position a couple of times and needed Berra to cover, but absolute quality as the game wore on ..stunning pass for the goal

The sort pass you'd expect from a midfielder Faaip

Marcelo Bielsa on Ben White playing in midfield: “If he plays ten or fifteen matches in this position, he will have an impact in the same way he does at centre-back. These positions are close to each other and one player can play both when playing.”
