Bend it like Bendtner


Our super star striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic wannabe is finally heading to a graceful Arsenal exit.

I’ve been so surprised over the last one year of his continued insistence of trying to leave Arsenal. His main justification was that Wenger was sidelining him from the Arsenal first time when he feels he is ‘ready’. You’re ready Nicklas, nobody doubts that. That’s why you were Wenger’s first choice striker in the Champions League a couple of seasons back. When Van Persie had been sidelined through injury and Bendtner was available, he was playing. Sadly enough, Bendtner couldn’t live up to his own standards last season and Marouane Chamakh took his spot. Still he continuously got chances, and except for a few quality finishes, he continuously failed.

So I hope he doesn’t blame Wenger, because he did get plenty of opportunities. In fact, a lot more than even the fans wanted.

It’s his ego that is always questionable. On many instances he said that he has the potential to be the world’s greatest striker, and compared himself to the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic (who knows why Ibrahimovic is his benchmark in the first place?). It’s not joke to be of the class of Zlatan. No doubt there was a lot of hype around him. Steve Bruce picked up his potential pretty quickly in his loan spell to Birmingham City. Still, you can’t just go to the press and make over-confident statements like that. Prove your quality on the field first, and others will judge potential and ability. I’m sure he expected ‘top clubs’ all over the world to come knocking after finding out his transfer availability, but that didn’t happen. Hopefully that has brought him back to earth.

Either way I wish him the best of luck wherever he goes. He’s still young, so maybe he will be a top world-class striker one day. If only he was a bit more patient, he could have been an Arsenal favourite.

    I will be sad to see super nick leave, yes he did waste a big chance against Barcelona, but if he had been playing as a centerforward all season and not on the wings ( mainly as a sub) he may not have been so rusty, and just put that chance away. Wenger have not played him a lot this season gone or the season before that, yes due to injuries, but when he did come on as a sub, he was played in the wrong position,
    I think nick will prove to be a great striker, just not for Arsenal, he just need a Maneger that will play him up front and not stuck out on the wing,

    I don’t know why ppl don’t see and appreciate hidden ability and potential of this great guy. Remember he went on loan at bimg.city and play as alone striker for half season and got a goldern boot at a record of 18 matches 20goals and a couple of assist.remember larsson, pennant, muaba and co put this in ur diary wenger and all other arsenal fans and supporters who support the sales of Great BENDTNER 52 will regret it. This guy is 1million better of the so call charmack who kick as if he doesn’t have leg lack of positioning for his head to be useful no skill got nothin to offer. Pls ship out this guy instead of BENDT52.
