Confident Bendtner Eyes Starting XI

Confident Bendtner Eyes Starting XI

Nicklas Bendtner says that he will break into the Arsenal first team next season.

Bendtner has come out several times since the start of the season and said that he will leave Arsenal if he does not get a first team chance when he returns from his loan spell at Birmingham.

Bendtner was Arsenal's top scorer in the reserve's last season and the youngster has continued his excellent scoring record with 18 goals in 25 starts for Brum.

Birmingham, AC Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea have all been linked with a swoop for the young Dane but he insists that making it at Arsenal is his priority.

Bendtner said: 'The plan is that I will stay at Birmingham until my loan spell expires at the end of the season.

'Afterwards, I will go back to Arsenal and break into the team there.

'I feel my chances at Arsenal are good.

'I am just as good as all the others,' he stated, 'and it's only Thierry Henry who is certain to play.'

Although making it at Arsenal is his priority, Bendtner admits he would consider a move to Birmingham.

'In case we get promoted, I might stay, but I would prefer to move on,' he continued.

'I have also heard that foreign clubs are interested in me, but I am just thinking about Arsenal.'

i like his attitude. making the right kind of noises, positive and wants to make the first team. frankly, i havent seen him play that much, so i dont know if he's as good as rvp and ade as he claims but it will be interesting to see what arsene does at the end of the season.

This latest comment is a lot more positive but most of the previous ones have come accross as cocky and arrogant. He will need to b patient if he is to make it at Arsenal.

Do your talking on the pitch young man. If you are good enough, prove it on the training ground. AW is hardly the kind of guy to ignore a blossoming youngster!!

I would also like to say my commiserations to poor Chelsea, who have a lot of injuries. This now means they only have 250m worth of players at their disposal. Oh no, diddums.

Bendtner is growing a very very big head. Yes, he's doing fine for Bruce in the Championship, but that's hardly Premiership... Surely he deserves a chance in the Arsenal shirt, and I like his ambition but he has been way too many times in the headlines praising himself. It's all a bit too arrogant for my liking. He has achieved very little yet he is persisting that 'he is as good as everyone else' - RvP and Ade? He should shut up and just play.

to become great player you need a certain amount of arrogance, self confidence and selfishness, look at Wrighty, full of all three and what a player. I think this kid will become a great player especially under wenger, who only sells them if he feels they are sub standard like Upson and Penant.

There is a difference between having a bit of arrogance/ self confience and blowing your own trumpet. Henry is slightly arrogant, Eto'o is slightly arrogant, Bendtner is being a bit of a t*t. Ld is right, he should let his actions on the pitch do the talking.

A certain amount PG, that is correct. I think even now he is beyond the 'certain amount'. He reminds me of Le Sulk sometimes, and Anelka was way above standard of the EPL. Bad advising and bad attitude took him all the way to the Orcs team from Bolton. Bendtner hasn't played one Premiership game and he is issuing threats to the club that he will leave if he is not played or if he is in the reserves. There is no 'I will work hard', 'I want to prove myself', just 'I will break into the team there'.
