Frankfurt move for Bendtner ‘dead’


According to media reports in Denmark, Eintracht Frankfurt have pulled out of a move for Nicklas Bendtner.

It had been widely suggested that TGSTEL would complete a £3m move to the Bundesliga side, but Frankfurt have just announced they’ll be signing Spanish striker, Joselu, on loan from Hoffenheim.

That makes a move for Bendtner a non-runner according to sources revealed by

So what now for Nick? In the absence of any football clubs, Arseblog News suggests the following may well be options:

Night clubs

Golf clubs

A private member’s club

The three of clubs

A seal club

When will it end with this guy?! Who knows, maybe Frankfurt want a Joselu Bendtner double act. If not, it might be time to take him into the woods and drive off …

Thanks to @joajonmad for the heads-up


  1. How can clubs not want him? He is actually a talented player and at the moment quite ‘cheap’, surely his attitude can’t be that bad otherwise he wouldn’t of made it to the professional level..

    • Sunderland and Juve stints have proved that he has no real quality, decent player but that’s about it!
      And the fact that we cant seem to get rid, shows how highly everyone rates him not!

  2. Ivan to Arsene: “what do we gotta do to get rid of this tick!??”

    Arsene to Ivan: ” merde! I have no idea!. I have always said that he has an exceptional mix of attitude and quality “

  3. Isn’t he looking to join a CL club? Now that even Frankfurt also don’t want him? Just want to get rid of this ‘legend striker’.

  4. i have a very bad feeling that we’ll be stuck with Bendtner this season and probably until he’s contract runs out and then he’ll leave on a free.

    Lets be honest, anyone with any sense wont pay any money for NB52, he’s rubbish and we know it.

    • given that we cant give him away i have a suspicion when his contract runs out he will either retire or go to a championship club flop and moan about service

    • To terminate the contract, unless a fixed payment is agreed upon, the club will have to pay out his remaining wages anyway, I think (I may be wrong). So, if no one wants to buy him then the best option for the club would be to loan him out again.

  5. He’s the gift that keeps on giving, this boy.

    Give him away. Pay him off. Turn him into glue. Just get fuckin rid.

  6. I wonder why the deal fell through. could it have to do with a reported interest in him from malaga? maybe they offered him or us more money and frankfurt couldnt match it?
    Arseblog you heard any news regarding this?

  7. Reported in das Bold that Frankfurt announced the signing this morning of another striker for similar amounts quoted for TGSTEL, so this would seem likely they’re not in for him anymore.

        • No reason why we can’t get a few quid for him. If Liverpool are getting £6m for Jon Jo Shelvey, Bendtner’s worth a few bob.

          My guess is it’s his salary demands that keep scuppering things, rather than us being difficult.

        • My guess would be exactly the same problem as with Chamakh, combination of outrageous salary and rep for not having great behaviour off the pitch.

          Starting to think the only way we’re going to recoup any money for either of them is lock them in a room somewhere and make them fight to death and sell the footage to some dreadful Z-list reality TV channel somewhere. And we’d be lucky to get more than a tenner for it at that 🙁

    • whatever it is, it’s too long.
      He’s the ultimate turd that won’t flush. Every time you think he’s gone he reappears and then when you think he’s gone for good you’ve left the toilet and then to your embarrassment your girlfriend goes in to see his mucky face grinning at her. The disgusting bastard.

  9. It’s so unlike Wenger to sign an average player and then pay him a ridiculous amount of money so he can’t be moved on.

    It’s never happened before.

  10. If he had put some proper effort into being a professional he would be a useful player for us or anyone.

    I can’t bring myself to entirely dislike a player who with one of his first appearances for us equalised, in the last minute, with a header against a full strength Spuds side playing an Arsenal Carling Cup semi-final side, containing even fewer than usual of the first team players, at the Emirates.

    I think it a massive shame that his ego spun so far out of control and he has wasted what talent he actually has. He has scored some good and important goals for us but they are over-shadowed by so much else.

    Still, he is history, albeit history that hangs around and repeats on us a bit like the taste of cucumber, or is that just me ?

  11. Also, what is with this Gareth Barry shape turd all of a sudden floating around in the Transfer Toilet? Someone pee on it soon so it loses its buoyancy and we can flush it!

  12. He is a player who is well and truly no longer wanted by the club so maybe other clubs are thinking ‘hey lets have Arsenal stew a bit with dead wood and they might throw him out sooner rather than later’ instead of paying a small fortune for a player who has proven to be chronically unreliable.

    £3m? now Frankfurt have a reason to ask for £2m, £1.5m. Good thing he’s still a full international or we would have done another Denilson.

    • I think Arsenal announced or made it known that five clubs had met their valuation for Bendtner. I bet the holdup is his salary demands and/or his demands for a team that worthy of TGSTEL.

  13. One season he scored the same amount of goals as a third striker as Giroud did this season. I think it was 08/09.

    I don’t see though how can a professional player live with this attitude. Unbelievable, he has been so close to the ‘top’ that you’d assume he at least tries to stay there.

    • No he didn’t. He scored 15 goals in 50 games and that was his best ever tally. He scored 9 in the league in 31 games that year.
      Giroud scored 17 in 47 games with 11 in the league from 34 games.
      Not dissimilar but, still, not as good and 5 years ago. Giroud hit that tally just last season in his first season in English football. Bendtner scored a whopping 0.

  14. Oh, for fucks sake.

    Here’s an idea. Let’s keep him and play him at centre back. He’s tall, reasonably quick and good at headers. We’ll fit him with a collar that zaps him if he strays more than 30 feet from our goal. we’ll also wire his tucking mouth shut.

    4th choice centre back problem solved.

      • Heh, it was all supposed to be in jest. I don’t actually propose keeping TGSTEL as a defender at all.

        He should be made manager, obviously.

  15. I thought this summer was supposed to be a fun one? All our exciting transfer targets seem to have gone quiet, we’ve been linked to Gareth bleeding Barry and now the footballing cancer that is Bendtner is still telling us he’ll make his mind in two the next two weeks without ever leaving. It’s long been my opinion that a minibus carrying Bendtner and the other stiffs should have had a little ‘accident’ and we pocket the insurance money.

    Our dealings in the transfer market seem so labourious that if we ever do sign Higuain or Fellaini i will be so tired of the whole saga that an excitement I should experience will have long gone.
    Note to Arsene/Dick Law – stop fucking procrastinating on deals and get them done. If you can’t make a decision or conclude a deal step aside and leave it to someone who can.

    • Like Ivan Gazidis and Dick Law? Doesn’t Wenger just tell them who he wants and then they do the negotiations? A bit like David Dein used to do

  17. Aston Villa can shift Emile Heskey but Bendtner’s ego means we can’t shift a slightly better player? If it wouldn’t cost much, I’d just terminate his contract.

  18. So Ramsey haters have now to comment as Bendtner haters or what?

    Was it 3, 4 years ago? He got a nice stint of games playing wide, working for the team, but let me tell you something, not every player is a Messi.

    In my opinion he’s not worse than Giroud, who is useless away from the area and much much better than Park, who promised 15+ goals at Celta and delivered 3. TGKoreanTEL eh?

    If we don’t get Higuain, play Bendtner as CF, Giroud wide left (if Bendtner did so, why not Giroud?) and The Ox on the right.

    After all we all know Theo only plays good after resting a few games..

  19. OK, here’s the plan. We just need the entire squad to make Bendtner look really, really amazing. Set him up for tons of goals, claim the ball flew off his boot and the goal is his even if he’s miles away from the box. Get this guy 30 goals in a season. Then Man City or Barcelona will come and offer £20 million. AFC will make off like bandits.

    It’ll be the biggest heist in history.

  24. We’ve been doing everything right this off-season with our ‘clear-outs’. Arshavin, Denilson, and Squilacci … plus a whole bunch of peripheral others.

    We’ve obviously been working hard getting players off our books. All we have to do is be patient.

    One day we’ll see Bendtner hosting a Danish game show or presenting the Eurovision Song Contest and it’ll all make sense. The Greatest Game Show Host That Ever Lived. It’s inevitable.
