There is a grand total of fuck all to talk about today, you have a choice; Bendtner wanting a new contract, more Cesc to Barca crap or… actually, thats it.
As im feeling extra generous I’ll talk about both of them.
Bendtner has had an up and down season, he is a player with the capability to score big, match winning goals but one who has had to seemingly overcome his own arrogance and win over the fans. He has done this in the second half of the season and has one of the best goals to minutes ratios in the Premiership. As I said before he is a player who stands up when he is really needed, he does grab vital goals and gives us a target to lump balls up to when we need to resort to that kind of play, Nikky is probably the best header of a ball at the club bar none.
He wants to extend his contract (it currently ends in 2012 I think) and hopefully it is something Arsene gets sorted over the summer, though it will be low on his priorities lost. It seems that we are seemingly playing hardball with van Persie so whether Bendtner skips a few pay brackets will remain to be seen. Speaking about the chance of extending his stay in North London he said:
“It is of course a priority of mine to prolong my contract, and I have never said anything else, for me it is of course sweet to receive the backing from the manager, and I hope to stay at the club for a long time.”
These are rather different quotes than some that appeared last season when he wanted more playing time and refused to pledge his future to the club, so this eagerness to seal a new contract is very positive indeed because he really does have talent and it could be a sign that Arsene sees him as the main man up front in the future.
Now onto the latest mundane crap about Cesc and its a similar situation to what Arsene found himself in a week or so ago when asked about Real Madrid. I will give you a rough overview of what Cesc might actually have said:
Reporter: So Cesc, do you think that any player in world football would want to play for a team that has just won the Spanish League, Spanish Cup and the Champions League and has the best three forwards in world football, backed up by Iniesta (worlds best player in my view) and Xavi in midfield?
Cesc: They are probably the best team that I have seen play in history and I have a lot friends there who are always telling me great things. Of course, you feel envy in a healthy way because of the way they play football. Everyone’s dream would be to play in a team like this.
And they get paid for making these shitty headlines up? Fucking hell.
Right, I have managed to write 500 words on bugger all. Maybe I should become a journalist?
