Arsenal fans do not expect a lot from Nicklas Bendtner, after years of frustration. Most of us expected the Denmark international to be on his way out of the club this summer and it appears that Bendtner expected the same. But due to the late collapse of Arsene Wrenger’s plans to bring in another front man, the Gunners boss decided he had to keep hold of him.
Nicklas Bendtner is certainly an enigmatic character. I was going to say he is like Marmite to the Arsenal fans, but it is not really like that. I think we all realise that the Denmark international striker had talent, but he kept failing to produce it and his attitude and off field behaviour got in the way of his football. So it’s not love hom or hate him, it’s both at the same time.
Another one bites the dust! by AH
Arsenal have already released a confirmed list on the players that are set to leave this summer as their contracts will expire on the 30th June. This list includes first team squad players Arshavin, Denilson and Squillaci, whilst many other youth team players that were arguably unlikely to make it were also listed as the other players departing the club.
What are we going to do with Nicklas Bendtner when he comes back to Arsenal? by SS
Simple, sell him. He has been on loan at Juventus this season after Arsene Wenger finally tried and failed to sell him last summer. He has not scored a single goal at Juventus this season and has failed to show the Arsenal management why he should stay at the club.
Bendtner started his career in his native Denmark with Copenhagen who are one of the biggest and best clubs in Denmark. He was purchased as a teenager for a very small amount and left to prove his worth in Arsenal’s reserves for a while.
Most Gooners never want to see the words Bendtner and Arsenal in the same sentence unless it is something along the lines of, some team or other take Nicklas Bendtner off Arsenal’s hands. There have been reports recently that the rich Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala or the German Bundesliga club Hamburg may be ready to do just that. Maybe Arsene Wenger is going to miss him, because the Gunners are still pursuing the young Danish striker dubbed the new Bendtner.
After losing three of the last four games, it is no wonder that Arsenal fans are unhappy and looking for somebody to blame. The defence has been the main target, mainly due to the soft nature of the goals that have been conceded, but the Gunners have been struggling at the other end as well. Olivier Giroud is coming under fire again, with some JustArsenal readers even commenting that they would prefer to have Bendtner back. Well it looks like they may soon get their wish.
Never one to underestimate his own abilities, the Arsenal and Denmark forward Nicklas Bendtner has found somebody to blame for the poor form that he has showed in the Premier league. Bendtner has revealed the reason he was not up to scratch was the Arsenal training methods.
“At Juventus the training has been different to, and much harder than, anything I’ve done before. Because of that, my form is at a peak. I’m much sharper.
“I think Juventus are aware of what I can do.”
Although there is a very long way to the next transfer window, you can be sure that the Arsenal scouts are not sitting around twiddling their thumbs! According to reports today they are very impressed with a young American-born striker that is currently in record-breaking form for the Danish SuperLeague side AGF.
The Iceland U21 international Aron Johannsson has already scored 10 goals for his club this season, including an incredible 4 goals in 16 minutes against AC Horsens last month with his hat-trick being attained in less than FOUR MINUTES!!!
BENDTNER’S DECISION by AH
Nicklas Bendtner, otherwise known as ‘the greatest striker in the world’ according to him, looks set to leave Arsenal this summer, with 5 clubs already interested in him.
The man from Denmark certainly has a presence and although people label him negatively, he honestly isn’t that bad. Last season he went on-loan to Premier League side Sunderland. I think his time in the north was fairly successful with 8 goals in 28 league appearances. It’s fair to say they’re not the best stats- however his performances seemed to be good and I honestly believe he is a decent player to have in a squad as back up.
Benfica set to offer Arsenal reject a lifeline by BA
Euro 2012 has been good for Nicklas Bendtner, even though his Danish team were unluckily eliminated from the competition last night. His performances have sparked interest from a number of clubs, and hopefully he will soon be on his way out of the Emirates.
His double against Portugal was his sixth in just five games against the Portuguese. Maybe this is why Benfica are the side most likely to sign the striker. Talksport reports that Benfica have opened discussions with Arsenal, and are keen to secure Bendtner’s transfer quickly.
So you have a professional footballer that plays for Arsenal (or Sunderland if you prefer) in the Premier League, and is rumoured to be earning at least 50,000 GBP every single week of his professional life, but is he a bit short of extra cash?
It would seem so, because the Danish international has obviously decided to risk the wrath of UEFA by breaking their rules about unapproved advertising during the European Championships. It was so blatant that he may as well have had a placard reading “Best Free Bets” attached to him during the game!
Real Madrid goal machine and contender for world player of the year, Christiano Ronaldo, was given a lesson in finishing today by none other than the Arsenal and Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner. I know this sounds ridiculous but it’s true.
Ronaldo has scored 60 goals this season in just 55 games for Real Madrid, while Bendtner has managed 66 in his whole club career of 234 matches.
Bendtner nearly got Denmark a draw against Portugal with two headed goals, the second one a peach, but substitute Silvestre Varela finally did what Ronaldo couldn’t and won the game for Portugal.
