He says that once he had his car accident he was black listed by Wenger and that he was not given a chance. Does that sound like how Wenger would operate? Is that fair? I am sure managers in the past have stuck by a player after worse than that and they have paid them back on the pitch.

Is the way he has reacted to the club just a reaction to how we did not support him? although there can be no doubt that he has come out looking the bigger **** by far when all things are considered. He is definitely the most in the wrong here, his attitude has been terrible in many respects but is it all him?

Can he rebuild his career here? Can bygones be bygones?

i don,t believe he was frozen out mate
he was on the bench 5 days after the accident coming on and scoring the last goal in the 6-2 win v blackburn
he was in or around the team for the next 6 weeks till he was out for 2 months with a hernia
he then had his best spell at club keeping us in the title 09/10 race to the end of the season
it is up to him to get his head right to make him a good squad option

Hes always struck me as the kind of guy that expects to be taken note while not doing the graft to earn that respect. Its never too late to turn things around, but the fact that he thought he could bully the club into his way of thinking, but without ever really proving anything speaks volumes to me.

The guy actually believes that he is owed something, but hes not. He needs to f***ing sack up and get on with making himself the best that he can be and then prove his worth on the pitch instead of acting like hes a top tier striker.

Find it hard to believe this plank is STILL on our books. Hell, I'd re-mortgage my house to buy him out

He needs to look at Gareth Bale as a shining example of where hard work takes you.

I dont like his attitude at all and I dont think he will change it. Ive always got the impression he thinks he's better than he actually is. Which is why I dont think he'll put in 100%.

He has ability, he's agile when he wants to be, decent touch and technique, great leap and header, his eye for goal isn't too bad either.

His big problem is his arrogance. Can't help but feel he'd be as good as if not better than Edin Dzeko if he had a better attitude, he can get to that level if he learned how to become humble, worked hard and tried to learn from his mistakes rather than carry on his pathetic delusion.

Too many football players have the minds of young teenage children, the never grow up properly because they are given too much, too young and too early!

Football for it to improve, we need to pay players much less. I keep banging on about Drogba and his success, this came down to him not being a superstar at 21/22 and having to grow up and become a man before be became professional. Live an everyday non superstar inflated wages life and know how to learn from mistakes.

Bendtner needs to grow up! Dzeko who I mentioned, again was no superstar or overhyped youngster at 19/20/21 like Bendtner. he was infact a midfielder who was put up front and stayed there because he was able to start scoring. He had that one brilliant season in 2008-09 and hasn't looked back since.

I'd take him back but only if he comes with the right attitude. We've got a good team attitude/spirit with this current squad and I wouldn't want Bendtner to ruin that with his moaning. Hopefully he comes back motivated because he'd be much better backup to Giroud than Sanogo.

A clear sign that he was not frozen out then, I wonder what he was on about in that interview then. Unless they were not real quotes.

He is a good player, Denmark have suffered since he lost his fitness, form and place in the team. I don't understand his attitude at all though, he has wasted some good years of his career in limbo.

The press love to make him sound worse than he is. Just look at the headline of the latest articles!!! He says he will do his best for the club and they make the headline sound as if he's complaining about not being allowed to leave!
