Bloody Bendtner

Not Good Enough

Bendtner: Not Good Enough

Arsene Wenger is well known for standing by players through thick and thin, and sometimes it pays off – take Flamini, an average utility player suddenly became one of the most composed defensive midfielders of last season from seemingly nowhere.

Indeed, Wenger has a proven talent for turning seemingly average players into world beaters – Viera, Henry et all – but surely a line must be drawn at Niklas Bendtner. Lets look at his stats.

2007/8: Played: 35, Goals 8
2008/9: Played: 17, Goals 4

Pretty pitiful stats for a striker who only recently demanded that his pink shoes should be seen more reguarly in the first team. That could be forgiven if he actively contributed to the team cause – however he has managed just FOUR assists in his entire arsenal playing career.

The number of times his blundering frame has caused a swift move to break down, or he has hit a tame shot straight at the keeper whilst in a one-on-one position has cost Arsenal this season. Surely, Arsene, you can’t continue to keep faith with this prune!
