Watch: Ben White’s debut season impressions for Arsenal

Ben White has proved to be a great signing for Arsenal thus far, and Frimmy has explained exactly what has impressed him most.

The English defender has quickly established himself as a key member of our backline with a number of impressive displays after his move from Brighton last summer, but it wasn’t the easiest start to life with Brentford initially causing him trouble. He quickly proved his haters wrong after that performance however, and he really came into his own in the North London Derby against Tottenham.

While I don’t think any of our signings stand a chance of beating Aaron Ramsdale to the ‘signing of the season’ tag come the end of the campaign, White’s contribution certainly shouldn’t be discounted, and he likely ranks as our second-best addition this term.

Does White deserve to be in the running for the award or is it a one-horse race?

  1. For a player who’s ment to be playing in our best defence in years I would honestly take the david Luiz we had over Ben white at this moment in time .
    Maybe he will improve in the near future but for 50 million I would have expected more if I’m honest .
    My opinion OFC

    1. Prefer white to the David Luiz we had at arsenal, and I think he’s been good overall, but i agree – not worth 50m from what I’ve seen so far. He’s calm on the ball and a decent defender, but has too many defensive weaknesses for that kind of money.

  2. Dark horse for next Captain.
    Cmon Benjamin, step it up for the endgame, we can do this. COYG !!!

  3. The only positive I can pick out from his games is His forward play. The rest is just a little upgrade on Mustafi.
    He’s not worth more than 20mil tbh.🤦

  4. Decent, would not say impressive and most definitely not worth 50 million.

    This defense has already conceded the same amount of goals as the Leno-Bellerin-Luiz combo.

    Don’t see the defense as being “fixed” as some would say.

    Culture & discipline better, player power removed and club is better for it.

    Man management is still a disaster, and player sales are downright shambles.

    Credit to Arteta for the reset, but don’t think he can return the club to the level we all want.

  5. A good defender he only lack that Aerial dominance, will look vastly different with quality defensive midfielders playing ahead of him, he could look very impressive with a player like Fabian Ruiz in front of him as an example.

    A player that seems to look better with every passing game, next coming season could well be a huge one in terms of his development

  6. Never in a million years a 50 million player. Not shown enough for me, he doesnt command anything and is not pulling too many trees up.
