Ben White is 'not good enough' to start for Arsenal blasts Agbonlahor

  Ben White is 'not good enough' to start for Arsenal blasts Agbonlahor Ben White joined the Gunners for £50million last summer from Brighton and forged a partnership with Gabriel at centre-back, making 32 Premier League appearances across the campaign. He played Friday’s Premier League opener with Crystal Palace, which Arsenal won 2-0, but was at right-back with returning loanee William Saliba preferred at centre-back.

As far as the theory, now the reality: a visit to Lichtenberg 47 or L47. Not just any team, at least eight times in Berlin in the GDR era and in 2001 also overall Berlin champions. Formerly even sixth league, but now fourth league and one of the very few amateur teams there. Most of it happens on a voluntary basis, and the player women bake on the last match day cake for the fans.

We have no idea about football, but the game will be a festival of good entertainment for us: the Cottbus fan on the left, which annoys himself about every chance of his house-high favorites. On the right an old man with a crowd: white-haired, sunglasses, genuine L47 fan who comments on every action in the interests of his team. With a subtle Berlin humor: When a Cottbuser turns two Lichtenberger in front of him, he calls: "Very quiet boys, he can't do it as little as you foules. Concentrated and clutches for a long time as if he had fished an unsustainable free kick from Ronaldo out of the air, the man calls: "World class, the man, absolute world class."

The Cottbus fans make noise and alarm. The whole time. Drumming, chants, flags. The L47 fans sit in the sun, clap every good action of their team and enjoy the bratwurst for three euros and the beer for 3.50 euros. According to statistics, Bayern are also at the forefront of 5.50 euros for beer prices.

The game ends 0-0. This is almost a victory for L47, because Cottbus was the first division. Although his team did not win, our Cottbus fan says: “What a wonderful day. Good weather, good bratwurst, a beer with friends. What more do you want? ”When we come to the exit, we go in front of us all the people in red and white and chat. On the left a man in Cottbus-Rot-Weiß, on the right a father with a son in L47-red-white.
