Arsenal Message Board
As an ardent Man United supporter I was amazed to watch the antics of your boys the other night in the Carling Cup, in particular that of Bendtner and Adebayor.
As much as it pains me to concede being a United supporter I've truly enjoyed the beautiful entertaining football served up by your lads this season, and I'm 100% sure any real football fan will say the same thing about your team.
What happened between Bendtner and Adebayor on Tuesday night was very unfortunate and has no place on a football pitch.
Yes, the occasion got the better of both players especially after going 4 - 1 down and as a true winner both players lost their head, but that doesn't excuse what went on afterwhat.
Wenger needs to talk to both players and fine them appropriately for bringing disrepute into your club.
Furthermore, Bendtner needs to recognise that Adebayor is the major reason why your team has been successful this season and all EPL defenders hate playing against him. Adebayor is that feared in the EPL, ask our Vidic and Ferdinand which striker they feared most and both Nemanja and Rio will say Adebayor unequivocally.
Bendtner needs to pipped down and wait for his time to come, Bendtner is not doing himself any justice by mouthing off in the daily press that he deserved to be played now in front of the more experienced and lethal Adebayor, look at the Spurs scenario where 4 experienced strikers including a certain £16.5million rated striker patiently obeyed their manager's decision of who plays and who doesn't and yet got on with it.
At 20 years of age Bendtner still has a lot of years in front of him as a striker and learning to do and must take his chances when given, sadly he didn't take the chance to stake a claim as the leading frontman on Tuesday night against the Spurs team, until Adebayor got on the field of play the front 2 players did nothing worthwhile. Another reason why Adebayor's impact on the Arsenals team is huge.
Imagine our Manucho or O'Shea or Saha giving Sir Alex an ultimatum to play either of them instead of Tevez and Rooney, SAF will them his famous hairdryers treatment and tell them to faak-off.
GLORY GLORY MAN UTD......
Frame by frame pictures showed Ade clearly moved towards Bendtner (who stood exactly in the same spot) and then you can see Bendtner head and upper body shift backwards when Ade was nose to nose with him.
Anyway, he has apologised and accepted responsiblity - end of, really.
on the facts I have to agree mate
however, SOMETHING clearly happened and there did appear to be some damage done to Bendtner - or at least enough for him to have there could have been
Ade is not being charged, but you wonder about the effect inside the club
Remember there used to be accusations of two camps within Arsenal? Maybe this is a continuation of that?
Spot on!. I think Wenger needs to get rid of Bendtner. His attitude stinks. Better players are quietly on the bench at Liverpool, Chelsea, Man U etc. Even Henry is often on the Barca bench when all is available

How does his attitude stink it was only ever "media reports" which suggested that Bendtner had a show down meeting with Wenger over not playing. As you should know by now media reports often turn out to be a load of trash and Bendtner has never publicly stated he feels he should play more or play in front of anyone. So whats your problem with the kid hes only 20 and is playing well for a player that age.
I love your post Sikh. It's one of the better written posts I,ve enjoyed unlike the sadistic humour of the so called professor. Men, that guy is so annoying that I never read any post by him anymore. In US, we call such people jerks.
