Bendtner to return as injury finishes his season


Nicklas Bendtner will return to Arsenal after the groin injury he picked up has turned out to be much more serious than first thought.

The Danish striker, who was due to spend the season on loan at Juventus, tore abductor muscles and had surgery in mid-December. Initially, it was thought that he would return in March but such is the extent of the damage he’s now been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Bendtner spent the season before last on loan at Sunderland, scoring 8 goals and running over 19 cars with Lee Cattermole, before joining Juventus on deadline day last August.

The move was always destined to fail, simply because of the Charles Aznavour turtleneck he sported on his arrival in Turin. Arseblog News would have recommended a casual shirt, perhaps with two buttons undone and, if he was feeling a bit saucy, some kind of understated medallion, but no, he had to go full 70s porn star on it.

Still, at least we’ll have The Greatest Striker That Ever Lived back at the club to offer advice to those less talented. There’s hope for Theo Walcott yet.

Thanks to Mads for the tip-off


    • What are you harping on about?

      He’ll be alright within a week or two, allowing him to lead us to nick all trophies in a daring 0-0-1 formation.

    • That’s right.

      For Wenger, it’s perfect timing. He has both Diaby and now Bendtner as excuses not to strengthen the squad. “We have Diaby returning for a game or two, and don’t forget we have Bendtner as well, so only if I find exceptional players blah blah blah…”

  1. Arsenal FC is like a good nursing home for some with The Greatest Medical Team That Ever Lived and social care.
    I hope there is The Greatest Psychologist That Ever Lived also.

  3. What a complete prick!

    He seems hellbent on matching Adebarndoor for stupidity, I wonder who will take the prize for being the biggest cunt when they retire?

    At least Adebarndoor is off our wage bill, we can’ t give this twat away!

  4. Ah so this is why we are not signing a new striker..Can’t blame Arsene..Its difficult task to find a more ‘exceptional’ striker than the greatest striker that ever lived

  5. Is it me or has he aged 15 years during his loan spell? and developed his quirky fashion sense further. Wow pink boots, to branded underwear to that.

  6. This guy is far more frustrating that Theo will ever be, purely because he’s never anonymous. This would be a good thing if 90% of the time, he wasn’t absolute shit, and then 10% of the time score vital goals, like his header against Hull City.

    • Falcao is exceptional. Cristiano Ronaldo is exceptional. Messi is exceptional.

      Bendtner would never allow anyone to describe him as merely exceptional.

      • I forgot, to add that this is the greatest striker that ever lived.
        (Sarcasm, or honesty, whichever Blogs chooses)

        Also, theyre world elite.

        Cazorla is exceptional. Say what you will, but there is another class between, e.g Iniesta and Cazorla, albeit a small one.

      • Bendtner likes to be described as bendtastic or bendtceptional. A word he created when he left the womb of his Virgin mother ( so he says ) when he realised that he was TGHTEL.

        He is the greatest human that ever lived and he is back at arsenal!

    Also bring back Internet Joe. He has had a terrible time this season but still, i miss him. (Internet Joe, not Bendtner)

  9. Gormless waste of wages and squad space.

    He is everything that is wrong with the modern footballer.

    Nick will you just seriously fuck off for good, take the rest of the overpaid dead wood with you.

  10. When the books are written about the Wenger era, this man’s name will be prominent. He sums up everything that has been wrong with the club over the last seven years.

  11. Ok, this is not gonna go down well, but…

    Did he slag off the arsenal or teammates?
    If he did, then fair enough to the abuse, but if not, then he’s basically an over-confident footballer without the skills to back up that confidence. He was bought and paid a high salary, and was expected to play with the skills he never had, which made him look far worse than if his limitations had been understood and played to. If he’d played for a Stoke (retches) then he’d be a 15 goal a season player.

    I want him off the wage bill, but not his fault we were stupid to pay it, that’s the fault of others.

    • oh – if he did slag off arsenal I didn’t know.

      if he did and the quote wasn’t taken out of context (ie “I ain’t gonna play for them because they actually don’t want to play me, and have even taken away my locker keys, because I’m actually as skilful with the ball as a wardrobe”) then fair enough – slag off the arsenal and you’re a cunt.

      • Quote from Sept 2010:

        ‘I will never go back to Arsenal’, Bendtner said. ‘If I can have it my way, I will never play for them again.’

        ‘After my car accident I never really got the chance to earn a spot in the first team,’ said Bendtner. ‘That is over one-and-a-half years with no real chance to prove myself. I am really looking forward to playing for Sunderland and then we will see next summer. I will find a new club – but I will not go back to Arsenal, that’s for sure.’

        TGCTEL – I’ll let you decide for yourselves what the c-word stands for, but I’m fairly sure we will all agree!

      • Ok, actually there are two options for the c-word. (Think male and female genitalia if you’re not with me).

        Either way, would be great for his porn star career!

  12. Could somebody at Arseblog please put the morons on the Arseblog Facebook page into place? Their stupidity is really starting to grind my gears.

    Also, lol Bendtner.

  13. Returns to Arsenal … The well known London haven for the underachieving and the perpetually injured. I’m surprised Joe Cole isn’t our Patron.

  14. So as one very average striker returns injured, another who we sold, who spent 75% of his time with us injured scores again.

    For the many who say we need to forget that traitorous Dutch scum bag, don’t you realise we can’t?

    Unless we replace him, we can’t.

    We’ve always just about been able to get away with selling our best players but when you sell 30 goals and don’t replace them, you’re fucked. Simple.

  16. Funny….I have always said: “Never trust a man wearing a turtleneck.” I think that what might have been regarded as a silly idea has been confirmed.

  17. Simply means we now have to pay his wages and medical expenses. Maybe Arsene should consider using a small fraction of his 7.5 Mill salary to cover those expenses.

  18. Is the reason that Bendtner is pictured wearing a turtle neck and jacket because a photo of him in a Juventus shirt couldn’t be found??
