Appreciate everyone might not agree but I already think Colwill is ahead of White. As Arsenal have already found out, you can't play White in a back 2 in the PL. White is an excellent, intelligent footballer hence him able to play at RB and DM but as a centre back, I think Colwill is already better and has a much greater ceiling. It is very, very rare for a 19/20 year old to be playing centre back for a top Premier League team.
I think much of that comes from the comparison in physical profile too. Levi is much bigger and stronger than White

According to t'internet:

Levi Colwill is 1.87m
Ben White is 1.85m

So 20mm in it. Thickness of a Mars Bar.

Levi is probably worth £50m in my opinion, no more. But I don’t think that goes in line with our model of buy low sell high. I hope we hold at £40m until Chelsea’s FFP issues hit the fan and say “well the offer is still there…”

Otherwise we look elsewhere. Shame that Ed Turns seems to still be a year or two away.

Here is another. Facundo Medina. Age - tick. Left foot - tick. South American - fit. Playmaker - fit.



Another Facundo. An almost perfect fit but his team (Lens) has just qualified for the Champions League. Pretty much has to be a no. I imagine we’re only interested in raiding non-Champions League teams.


Seeing this again on Twitter. Could just be A rehash of previous link of course.

The more important thing here is that Ben White could be the size of Dan Burn but he is just poor in the air. It is one of his major weaknesses. Not every player is strong everywhere, in fact none are so it's ok.

If we sign Alex Scott I'm breaking into Ashton Gate, double dropping and dancing naked for the rest of the summer.
Hopefully in that rubber dress she wore at Soccer Aid

This unfortunately for Albion isn’t the best news. Pleased for Levi but it’s another bargaining chip for Chelsea to push the price up.
It’s only for training camp, I guess with Stones away as well they needed the numbers

And that's the end of it... move on people, nothing to see here.

And just when I though it impossible to dislike Southgate any more...

I’ve given up on us getting Levi. It’s just too humiliating for Chelsea to let him go. They’ll find their FFP money in June another way. ☹️
