      @Get me to the Geek! Naaa blame U Tube it recommended the video to me. I can honestly imagine Southgate giving him a pep talk about kneeling. Imagine if a player said "sorry boss not me I have read the BLM page and don't agree!" Would he drop him? Anyway unless people call this out they will continue to think it's OK when imo it isn't. So yes I will be sarcastic as it gets the point across.

      @Enigma That's very honest of you. So you're lying in wait like a troll at the bridge, waiting to pounce on a video featuring an England footballer, despite having no interest in football? I really would look at your life priorities mate. Just having negative, sarcastic interactions with people isn't doing your sense of self worth any good.

      He did kinda trash the influence though, was a bit disrespectful. When, if he hadn’t played under Bielsa last season he’d be nowhere near that England squad. It’s the only reason he’s even been looked at. He’s the third best centre half at his club. I love Ben White for everything he did for Leeds but the only reason he’s even been considered is because of Bielsa.

    • Leo Dragon

      Leo Dragon

      11 dögum síðan

      Because without that season under Bielsa none of this would’ve happened. He was surplus to requirements at Brighton before he spent that season at Leeds and has come back a mainstay of the Brighton defence. Can’t say I’ve seen him progress under Potter but he has maintained that level. Also, it was Biellsa who first used him in the holding midfield role and encouraged him to get forward on the ball, all the reasons he’s now in the England squad.
