Unlikely That Newcastle Interested In Arsenal’s Bendtner


There is some news today that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew may be interested in Arsenal  striker Nicklas Bendtner.

Nicklas Bendtner – in action last night at Leeds United

The 35 times capped Danish International seems to think he should be playing more games at Arsenal, and he’s his own number one fan, and may not be as good as he thinks he is.

However, Nicklas had a good game last night at Leeds in Arsenal’s 3-1 win,  and put in the perfect cross for Robin van Persie to head home the Gunner’s third and vital goal.

It was only recently that Alan Pardew said he had been impressed with some of the Newcastle strikers, who were  getting a chance to shine at Newcastle in Andy Carroll’s absence with  thigh injury, and was rethinking whether he wanted to bring in another striker.

And we’d be surprised if Arsene Wenger would even think of allowing the striker to leave Arsenal,  when the Gunners are in with a more than decent chance of  winning one of the Cups this year.

And Bendtner is said to be a target of West Ham – but who isn’t these days?

With the nonsense going on with Avram Grant, and their lowly position in the league, it could make it difficult for the Hammers to attract any good players in January.

And if the news is to be believed Martin O’Neill even pulled out of becoming manager because of the nonsense going, and we’re just pleased that Newcastle is not getting that kind of news coverage these days.

And on the potential move of his son to Upton Park, Nicklas’  father Thomas said they would not be interested.

We would be surprised if Alan Pardew was considering bringing the Copenhagen-born Bendtner, who has only just turned 23,  to Newcastle United.

But maybe a loan move would be something to consider, if Alan is indeed interested.

What do you think?

    He’s a very good player – He said a while back if he leaves Arsenal he would leave the country! So that puts an end to that nonsense

    I haven’t commented regarding this whole transfer window coz it’s nuts but only one or 2 players needed and they’re left sided….midfield is packed already but now routledge may be gone…. What about Adam Johnson? IMO don’t need new strikers and I think we have enough defensive cover for now…. Just my opinion. But er NO to bendtner thanks

    Good player, but he regards himself as a player who should be in the CL. Rumours has it he has quite the ego down there..

    when he first came on the scene, the lad looked great, but a year later he started wearing pink boots and playing with chewing gum, the lad loves himself though he has achieved nothing, He is not the type of player i want playing for us.
    very lazy on the pitch and last night he was in my opinion arsenals worst player. dont like him, very overrated.

    ALSO can I highlight the fact we turned away larsson because he wanted 20k a week yet days later we are linked with SWP and Bendtner who are likely to be on triple!

    Good point nobby sol. If anyone comes in, it will most likely be a championship player or maybe someone from the french or dutch leagu systems where thewages are lower.

    Personally I think he is a lazy arrogant tw*t who isn’t as good as people think, he is average and would be far too expensive for what he is

    Better than strolla, best, loven, ranger and xisco.

    May be big headed but if its a possibility we should definately be in for him.

    Really can’t see it happening though.

    Nobby u must have watched another game last night. but I agree with what someone else said: we need a small, agile, clever forward who can pick up on AC’s headers. someone like Bellamy’s style. Tevez maybe? 🙂

    agree balbubas1,
    Tiote has been the signing of the season partly because no1 really knew who he was, Dries Mertens of Utrecht is a good player, he tore up liverpool in the europa cup, young and relativley unknown, few grand, barely a million and theyd be tempted.

    I dont rate him.

    I think he is lazy with a bad attitude, he seems to think he should be in the starting XI no matter what.

    Does anyone even know his proper position!?!

    Better than all the players we have up front now (maybe excluding carroll) but it would be YET ANOTHER player who has all the skills and ability but couldnt finish if the goals were an extra 10 foot wide.

    Sign someone who scores goals please, not someone who occasionally gets a go playing when his team mates are out injured. Maybe look abroad? Germany have good goal scorers.

    Just read Neil Warnock talking about Routledge “We’ve nothing definite yet and it’s far from being finalised. The clubs have agreed but I think he has a personal issue to sort out with Newcastle.” What would he have to work out with Newcastle? Interesting!!!

    great player who would excel in a 442 he dosnt suit arsenal game as he is way too direct – would suit us though.

    he is so big headed – but i see that as a plus…nothing wrong with talking yourself up if you can back it up on the pitch..

    off topic – he is married to an old hag on 42 or something…some danish royalty…but who would pick such an old fart if you were 23?
    maybe he is crazy enough to join us then

    Thats what I was thinking and it seems weird we are shipping him out with no ready made replacement. Who would be our backup for Barton if no one came in, Gosling or Vuckic are more Central or Donaldson who is still young!

    Why do we need yet another central midfielder? who makes way? Routledge still here, despite the usual crap on SSN. That channel should be taken off the air, and if I was Avram Grant, I would sue the bastards for the scurrilous shit they were putting out about him on Saturday, started by that prick David Craig.

    Shearermania, Bendtner missus is 35 and pretty good plus she has a 400 million pound fortune so he can probably say he is the worlds richest footballer. Something more to go to his head

    I feel compelled to comment following all this adulation for him, ‘great player’, what the f**k. He’s absolute pants! Touch of a rapist, no strength for a guy of his stature, lazy, terrible finisher and I could go on and on. He’s one of these players who deludes himself as to his own ability, believing he’s a luxury player who can strut around with nonchalance only the most gifted can get away with (Berbatov, Henry, Zidane, Bergkamp). Absolute cocksmith.

    Really? You call that an old hag? Bendtner may not be the best footballer in the world, but like him, id take her age as a knock on the chin. She has a fortune and she certainly aint no hag from the pictures ive seen!!!!

    Not a player I’d want to see in a Toon strip.

    I don’t think anyone will be coming in this transfer window.

    All gone quiet on the Routledge front too.

    Summer transfer window will be crucial this year.
