Juventus complete Bendtner signing

Juventus have completed the signing of Nicklas Bendtner.

The Greatest Striker That Ever Lived has joined the Old Lady on a one year loan deal with an option to buy at the end. The Danish international has been looking for a club all summer and had agreed terms with Siena before the Turin giants came sniffing around.

”Siena sporting director Stefano Antonelli told Sky Sports Italia, “It was seemingly an impossible operation, but we had an agreement with Arsenal and with the player.

“It seemed like a dream, but, at one point, it looked as if we had him. The interest from Juventus then changed the scenario.”

And it was hardly a ringing endorsement of Bendtner’s quality when the Juve sporting director said of their decision to bring him in, “Bendtner is not the high-profile striker we were hoping to sign but it’s a chance we had to take in a difficult market like this.”

Still, he can change their opinion with hard working, storming performances. Ahem. Farewell Nick, you weren’t ever as good as you thought you were, nor were you as bad as people said.

Until next summer … when we can’t find a club to sell you to!

I am happy too , the window is still open we need to sell more players before it closes



Arsenal have finally sealed deals for

Fahk al,……A turkish striker and
No wan…..a japanese centreback.

Should be confirmed at the stroke of midnight. I’m excited.

Cygan's Left Foot

Nice to see some have woken up and realise it is all a LIE. We are not here to compete, we are here to finish top 4 for the CL money and make a profit. Now, who is the fool that going to believe the club when saying they are going to sign in Jan window????. I hope the King comes in Jan again. And the ONLY reason I can see the club signing one or two players in Jan is that, if they realise we are losing the fourth place and CL trophy/money. Remember the signing of Arsha when… Read more »


Any word on who is paying his wages? Juventus I hope?


Nah, Juventus are just paying for his new underpants (fines included)!!!


arsene wenger’s transfer policy is just like abou diaby with the ball.
i am scared of liverpool now.they have got a brilliant manager and getting points from anfield is really really hard.
it’s gonna be a fucking long season.come jan if we are not challenging for the title we should protest.i can’t take this bollocks anymore.
are you telling me arsene couldn’t find a better player than ciq or jenkinson?



Rectum Spectrum



bet u feel pretty thick after a man of the match performance from diaby and a 2-0 win over liver poo


A loan? That sucks.


Have they signed him as a striker or a used car salesman from 1987?


Buying an Arsenal striker is much like making love to a beautiful woman…


… you’re only dreaming if you think they love you more than money?

A Yank

You have never done either?


from rvp to llorente to berba to bendtner. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA good luck in europe juventus


Here is to hoping he does very well……………we need the 6mEuros from the permanent deal next summer to further grow our profits…

Glory Hunter

Dream on mate!
He’ll be back like a nasty rash.

Cygan's Left Foot

To make profit next year we will have to sell …. Sagna, remember he is approaching 30, 8/10 mil. One of Verm or Koss as we have BFG, DJ and of course Miguel, 15/20 mil. The sprinter will go for free, god that will hurt their annual bonuses a lot, 0. Arteta, as Le Coq and Frim will be ready and see Sagna, 6/8 mil. Just please not Jack, raise the season ticket prices, don’t sign anyone to make your annual profit/bonus and EVEN ask us to make a collection in the streets to cover your bonuses. JUST DON’T SELL… Read more »


we wont and shudnt sell sagna aged or not hes by far the best and a quality replacement will be 15m(i dont think we should ever have sold eboue to be honest)

none of our dcs are being sold

we would have to be monumentality thick to sell wilshere

and if we sell arteta i’ll cry


I’m curious did he arrive with his pants on?.


And pink boots.

Wes Mantooth

No. Ron Burgandy still has them.

Wes Mantooth

It was an easy sell. Juventus offered free pizza.


is there a source for this or is arseblog the source themselves?


Surely the source is the big photo at the top clearly showing him standing outside an Italian medical centre.

Wes Mantooth

Looks like he’s wearing one of those outfits that come off entirely in one piece. I guess the outfit can be used on occasions other than Ladies Night at the local piano bar.


Yes, the source being the official arsenal website. Good enough? 🙂


And the Juventus website.. if you can read italian.

You’re not from around here are you? Rarely do you read something on the Arse that is not confirmed. By rarely I mean i haven’t read anything yet…


By “Old Lady”… Do you mean Juventus or is he dating the baroness again?


Good riddance!!! Now that made my day

Merlin's Panini

He’s got The Biggest Face That Ever Grinned. The big faced cock.
Why can’t he just fuck off properly? I’ve had enough of this moron.

Glory Hunter

Lol that literally made me LMAO


The big faced cock…meaning a dickhead no? Thus Juve are the cocksuckers, but no that cant be right, Juve are nice for doing what they did. Thanks Juve.


I started reading this article with a massive smile on my face, thinking that we had finally sold this waste of space. My mood quickly changed when I read that it is only a loan with an option to buy. I thought that we had got rid of this clown once and for all. Now I can only hope that he actually does well in Italy so that someone, somewhere will actually take him off our hands after all these years.


Another loan due to our rediculas wage structure.
Loved the presidents quote tho. Comedy gold.

Midfield Corporal

Will we learn the lessons after being unable to shift half a squad of crap on too higher wages, but losing all out best players because we can’t pay them enough, it’s not bloody rocket science.


Nicklas, a loan again?

Slightly related:
I just saw that De Jong went to Milan for 3,5M and Berbatov to Fulham for 5M. Pretty good deals I’d say…


One of the greatest strikers that the human race will ever know.


it will be mental to go thru this next summer all again!!

Justin Ashbee

But you know we will!!!!

big black clock

Have a feeling that Wenger has been hiding in his cupboard the whole day. Watch as he comes out with 2 hours to go and makes a dozen “take it or leave it” bids to troll clubs everywhere


The de Jong deal is a steal, at that price would
Loved to have seen him at arsenal. But we only sign top top quality and there are none available in that category.


Not top top quality. Top Top Top quality. 3 > 2. Kinda like: XXX, Girls Girls Girls, Live Live Live. That kinda quality is hard to find (unless you troll the seedy parts of Amsterdam or NYC).

Midfield Corporal

Who got the keys to your Beamer?

Texas Gooner

“Oh shit I just bought a Bendtner shirt” Said no one ever


“i’m sorry for all the fans who bought my shirt before i changed my number to 52”

Definite gunner

So the first eleven will be bendtner alone.
His ego will occupy the other spots.

gooner odst

I dream of signing Neymar + M’villa + Remy + ‘another top player’ all simultaneously at 23:59:59

one can dream and drink eh?

Merlin's Panini

it would have to be a dream because the window shuts at 23:00

gooner odst

ahh thats the drink doing all the typing


If it’s 23:59:59 +1GMT it would work. Where is that by the way? Somewhere in the English channel?


Yikes… make that -1. I don’t have drinking as an excuse.


“Farewell Nick, you weren’t ever as good as you thought you were, nor were you as bad as people said.”
Yes, yes he was…lazy, slow, lumbering, poor control.
Apart from that, he was fine.
Surely his sobriquet now must be “the greatest striker that ever lived with an old lady”. Damn sight more accurate…..


FFS!! Why can’t anyone just pay the full price for this guy? All this loan business…
How much is he worth anyway? I mean come on TGSTEL, if you’re that awesome why can’t you be solddddd??????? Arggghhh!!
Not sure the source of my frustrations, that annoying smirk on his face or the fact that we ain’t doing jack on the transfer front.


So, Old Lady huh? He just loves em ol’ en wealthy.


So another loan spell, not the ringing endorsement he would have hope for, with the president saying “he’s not the big name we hope for” and clearly not willing to pay the two packets of pork scratchings and half a bottle of stout that we were asking.
Bit humiliating really. Bless him


Will never forget his header against the scum but no control of the ball and a first touch like an elephant he won’t be missed in my house


What was he doing in your house? I think we should be told…..


I always loved bendtner as a stricker. I see him succeeding at juventus.


I still remember him coming through the ranks. He and Lupoli would rape other teams. Bendy suffered because of the adoption of 433 4231 he has always been better in a 442 having had a great partnership with eddy before he was broke.


“with an option to buy at the end”
hmm. maybe they should’ve changed “option” to “request”
I just don’t want to have to deal with Bendtner-gate all over again a year from now.


if he had only taken that chance against barca…..


If only I’d got that bl*w job off Angelina Jolie.
About as likely…..


that’s one of his numerous unforgivable crimes. it was a sitter and we would have gone through. Wasteful-nicklas-f**king-bendtner


Are we still paying even a portion of this useless dodo’s wages ?

I will be livid, if we are. Don’t forget we are still paying a large slice of Denielson’s pay packet.

Another example of Wenger’s decision making at it’s very worst, paying these two average players salaries that no other – sane – club would contemplate for an instance.


I dunno, Liverpool under Dalglish might have had a punt…

Eric Irish gunner

Ye they got rid of Carroll, Adams and tried to flog Henderson to fulham all bought by Dalglish that’s a fucking shambles

[…] 来源:[Arseblog News] […]


We can only hope he does well and that excercise the option to buy.

It didnt work out for him for various reasons namely him thinking way to much of himself plus he wasnt given a proper run in the team as forward target man.

He will never scores loads but he could be a good target man if he gets some agreesive into his game .. doubt it.


So now we are down to having 2 strikers with very similar qualities and arteta playing defensive mid… But atleast they fixed our problem area reserve reserve youth keeper from macedamia nut


Farewell. Do well hopeful and get a permanent deal


52 comments in this thread.. How ironic?? 53 now. What’s wrong with a permanent deal?

Midfield Corporal

Did we enter this transfer window with no transfer budget? We spend 40m and get slightly more back, then we’ll be told we did spend money. Where is the surplus from last summers budget too? A Couple more 15m signing and I think we’d be happy but this lack of ambition is soul destroying. I have come to the opinion that we need to finish outside the CL to move forward.


The problem is that if we do finish outside the CL then we’ll struggle to attract the calibre of player that we’d want.I don’t see us having enough firepower to seriously challenge nor the depth to cope when the inevitable injuries start to bite. I’ve got this sneaking suspicion (I hope I’m wrong) that it might be this transfer window that is the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Of course, I’m no expert and like I said, I hope I’m wrong.

Midfield Corporal

But we’re not attracting that calibre of player anyway are we? Who have we signed that wouldn’t have come anyway. Seems like we’re competing with spurs and Liverpool for the scraps


Possibly Podolski and Cazorla (I’m speculating-you’d have to ask them). The fact is, although the board, either through greed, apathy, or prudence (delete according to your preference) seem unwilling to really go after big names, the fact of the matter is that with Wenger, our history, our funds (look at the AST’s data: we do have them) and our CL place, if the club wanted to we ‘could’ go after big names. But it’s a bit of a Catch 22, I think, as the only way that they’d saction a spending splurge would be if the shit hits the fan… Read more »


Ha ha ha ha ha happy Bendtner,
but time is passing and I’m sad that lot’s of fans (not many on this forum) were right – we are again aiming on top 4 but with 4th underlined – no signings except maybe loaned Esien which is even not good like last year loaned Ben. Truth is cruel. Let’s wait until deadline. Let’s hope for miracles…

big black clock

I’m the greatest optimist and even I’m disappointed that we’re not signing anyone. The squad is incomplete. Definitely needs a RB and a striker.

Well Wenger did say yesterday that “the club is still active in the market”. I should have known.


Yes, he was acting like he’ll repeat last year’s last day frenzy. That was nooot promising at all.


It’s just really fucking annoying that its so obvious we need another midfielder. It’s obvious by the fact that we have actively been searching for one on Fucking loan with sahin and now essien.. with reports essien isn’t allowed to join arsenal which means we won’t get anyone. How can we consider ourselves one of Europe’s elite clubs if we can’t even sign the additions we need to improve our squad more importantly sold Alex song with no other reasoning then taking the 15million and pocketing it. It’s Fucking disgraceful and us fans deserve better.


Come on the falcao.
Down the chelsea.

No signings will be eased by a chelsea defeat.


Not sure what to make of this considering it looks very unlikely we will bring anyone else in. He didn’t want to be here, and he did miss THAT chance.. but surely The Greatest Striker That Ever Lived would be slightly better backup than The Greatest Shisha Smoker That Ever Lived which is what we’re apparently left with. Oh well, good luck to him I suppose.


Chamakh is better then gstel !
Now at least he has to stay cos we are missing another CF.
Shisha is cool!


Well statistically, he’s not. But maybe there’s some other way you were thinking of?


Clearly, he was thinking shisha-istically.


I fear this move will severely damage Arsenal in the “players who get talked about because of their underwear” area. Any chance Arsenal can coax Freddie Ljungberg out of retirement?


What a depressing Friday night! While Spurs, Man City and even QPR are out there spending and fixing their problems with their squad, we are sitting back and doing fuck all. Wenger said a few days ago that he had players in mind to sign – so where the fuck are they? Where is the defensive midfielder that we need to replace Song? Where is the defender that can play anywhere in the back four? And where is the reserve striker now that both Park and Bendtner have gone? This current squad will struggle to finish fourth. Fuck Wenger, Kroenke… Read more »


“This current squad will struggle to finish fourth.”
When I said that a month ago my post got hidden. It was so obvious that again we are not aiming higher then last year. I’m not happy that I was right. I think even to finish 4th club should target higher. We had rvp last season, he made a difference.


Hate to say it, but I have to agree. This is a joke, probably, and I hope massively I’m proved wrong, but I know probably this won’t be, but Man C/Chel will probably finish 1st and 2nd, probably in that order. Sp*ds will probably finish above us, competing with Man U for 3rd and 4th. Come on, they signed Adebayor, Moutinho, Vertonghen to replace Gallas and King, Dempsey. Their first team looks (dare I say it) strong to me, and what’s more their rotation options, like Moussa Dembele and whatnot, looks stronger than our rotation options. (Although their winger options… Read more »


We could try a 4-4-2 and put Giroud upfront as a target man, with Walcott getting the balls Giroud nods on, but what a letdown that would be if that was the tactic we had to use.


Mate, first of all Wenger put us on the map b4 Wenger I don’t think many ppl know much about AFC or claim to be a gooner


You arsenal fans lack ambition. As long as wenger and this board is here then in the next 10 years or even more we will be doing same things. I bet arsenal fans will die of heart attacks till then. He says when we get quality player we will sign, is essien a quality player?????? Not even in chelsea bench. I can’t just understand this wenger. He has played with our minds just tooooooo much. If you are an arsenal and still believe what this person says then you are going to die with HBP!


Fatgooner. Don’t always agree with ya mate but have always respected your passion and yor right to say what you think but this time you are totally bang on.
What’s happened tonight is a disgrace.


Indeed it is ! Can anyone think we are AS strong as last year ? Let alone stronger ? Think about it ! We’ve lost Yossi, RvP and Song. Do the three who come in cover that ? I honestly think they are good players and if we had held RvP, replaced Song and maybe got an experienced keeper – with Jack back – we could challenge. But that has not happened. Oh yes and we – or rather Kronke – has just pocketed £25 million from the sale of Queensland Road developments. Plus the £10 million profit from this… Read more »

Cygan's Left Foot

Don’t forgot the saving in wages of 23 players that we sold, released or loaned this year.

The French Fool and Ivan the clueless must be getting top bonuses as they fill the stupid Yank Stan pockets up.

Why get rid of Little Yossi? He is better than Non Signing Sprinter and the Forehead. He would have given us one or two years of service and experience to allow Ox, Ryo, Eisfield and Gnabry to develop and learn from him.


Who the fuck is paying for the 400mil stadium? Can any of u fans answer that…yes we need to spend but u can’t expect us going on spending spree like Chelsea or man. City their owners worth billions



if i could be bothered i’d photoshop wenger over thom’s face (you get the idea though) (still love you arsene)

big black clock

Woah a lot of angry Arsenal fans everywhere. I am disappointed too.

But in reality, I just wanted a RB and another striker. I honestly think Coquelin should be given a chance this season so no DM needed there. Wenger obviously trusts Jenkinson with RB and Chamakh (for the love of god why) for striker cover.

Realistically, we have a very strong starting XI, when they click. We needed some squad depth, disappointed that the club failed to see that . But I’m still here hoping we have a bright season. COYG


Yes maybe we have a strong starting 11 but again and again we are lacking depth. Szcz Gibbs Verm Kos Sagna Rosicky Wilshere Ox Santi Walcott Giroud … but when they will play together? It is so bad what Board is doing to the club. Every year we need just 2-3 players to reach for the title but it is always opposite: we loose 2-3 and then buy some but not good as sold ones. But I must say: I care for the title but it is not only reason why I want mighty Arsenal. I want that we have… Read more »

big black clock

Besides, we can still laugh at Liverpool. Their depth and striker situation is worse than ours


…and now they are trying to play tika-taka football.. hahahahahhaha


Bbc. I know what your saying about Liverpool. But we have em on Sunday and these things have a habit of biting you on the arse.

big black clock

I’m very confused about our transfer policy as well. Why did we pull out of the Sahin deal if we had no plans to bring in another back up? Why did Wenger promise us a bucket load of signings and about how active we are in the market?

I worship Arsenal and Wenger. But I feel let down today. We fans deserve better.
