A Letter From Nike to Nicklas Bendtner

We are writing to you today to inform you that we are terminating the contract that allows you to wear our new Nike Mercurial Vapor Rosa boots.

At Nike we worked long and hard on the celebrated pink boots and each time we see a player sporting the Rosas all of us here at Nike feel a great sense of pride.

However, here at Nike we believe in sticking to our word above all else. To us there is nothing worse than breaking a promise. I must now point you in the direction of our press release for the Rosas.

“The Mercurial Vapor is the boot of choice for some of the fastest and most prolific strikers in football today.”

While we certainly admire your stand-out confidence Nicklas, we feel that we may have been a bit rash when handing you the Rosas. We feel that though you have a lot of potential it would not be fair to class you as one of the “most prolific strikers in football today”.

We understand that you will be hugely disappointed by this notification but we must act in the best interests of Nike and currently your performances are slowly beginning to tarnish the pristine reputation of this company.

We greeted your goal against Dynamo Kiev with many a cheer in the Nike office as your first goal in the Rosas was awaited with baited breath. But despite this, the glaring one-on-one chances that you squandered against Burnley eclipsed the small success of the Kiev goal.

At Nike, we view teamwork as a holy principle that should not be voided by any callous individual. On Tuesday, it was apparent that you were going out of your way to run around in circles instead of playing simple balls to your teammates. There were flashes of potential, but once again these stood in the shadow of your painfully clear errors.

We can understand some of your frustration in playing in the Carling Cup, but what you must realise is that you put on a display of incompetence and petulance that shamed you, your team and most importantly the sacred Rosas.

Here at Nike we can no longer associate our showcase product with your sub-par finishing and misplaced arrogance.

It is with a deep sense of sadness (rarely is our judgment so poor) that we have decided to terminate your association with the Nike Mercurial Vapor Rosa boots. You must turn in your boots to your nearest Nike outlet and resume play with your previous model. If you are seen to be wearing the Rosas again within a ten mile radius of Arsenal’s training ground or the Emirates Stadium, then you will be contacted by our legal team.

Wishing you all the best on your Rosa-less future, Nike.

Nope. And I never disagreed with you on Bendtner. I’ve never personally rated the feller, I just don’t see what he brings to the team.

Bendtner’s definitely going through a bad patch.

He’s shown glimpses of class though and is a proven scorer at international level for Denmark.

He’s obviously got a big head and fancies himself but so do a lot of top strikers. I’m not defending his poor performances and seeming lack of effort but I think it’s worth remembering that he’s still only 20 years old. 20! If his performances are bad then it’s up to the manager to sort him out / bench him / sell him. In the meantime we should support him.

Come on, let the boy become a man, he’s only 20! Soon he doesn’t care about the colour of his boots anymore. Instead he will be scoring for fun, week in week out.

come on you guys, this is really unfair on the lad. Nobody seems to mention the two incredible flicks that provided Randall and Vela with the best chances of the game. And nobody seem to remember that Vela was even worse yesterday than the big Dane. Nobody in our team would have made those passes except RvP, I think. Nick is a very unstable player, and so are a lot of players at the age of 20. But when he shows us his flashes of brilliance they are some of the best football you’ll see. Did anybody see how he… Read more »

Well said ‘Stone’! This youth policy is gettin’ too far in my mind.. People are kickin’ out 20 year old lads cause they’re not scoring hattricks away from home at Turf Moor.

Why do we continue with Bendtner pink boots or no pink boots. How he ever got to first wear the Arsenal shirt I never know…. He is an absolute waste of space and needs to be sold along with his pink boots sooner rather than later……

The problem with Wegner is that its always tomorrow with our current squad but tomorrow never comes…… We need a center half, a good holding midfield player an out and out striker and a goal keeper… Apart from that we are good…

i agree with stone 100%
however i also agree with some of the people who critisise him!
but fear not fellow gooners, for there is a mutual solution!
arsene should send him on a loan to bundes league, french, italian, or spanish primera for one or two seasons. That way he will develop, and not ruin our club…in a couple of seasons he will be a quality striker, i have no doubt about it

It is hate on Bendtner time. Never mind the fact that take away a fluke hat trick Emmanuel “Money Bags” Adebayor has only scored two league goals. So Nick had an off night finishing, he is a kid. And like Stone said, Ade was even worse then he is now when he first came but Nick still did create two great chances for other players and it is hardly Bendtner’s fault that Randall, the piece of rubbish he is, shot directly at Jensen.

Nick has a great footballing mind and you can see it in his ability to put people through. How many times has he done it this season? Bolton,Sunderland,West Ham,Chelsea, twice yesterday… there’s more, those are just off the top of my head. He’ll be one hell of a supporting striker in a few years in my opinion.

dfunkydog

I am an admirer of Bendtner and I think he will grow into a prolific striker, just look at his international record.

He has great awareness and the ability to feed the right pass qualities he showed last night and many times before.

Having said that I think this an excellent satirical piece. please people take it for what it is.

Great post Andy.

typical narrow minded view from this site…
I won’t deny he is a frustrating player, but come on… Stone should write about for your site, he atleast has a measured view of this, not a rash ‘HE SUCKS’ article.

Hail to the stone (above). This is the type of discerning supporter that we need. Everybody knows that the shock defeat really hurt us, but to pick on Bentnder when we had the likes of Randall, Vella and that Roger kid performing the “Rabbit in the Headlight”, I think Bentnder did quite well. And where was Sylvestre when we were concedeing the slopiest of goals?

Tremendous post and absolutely 100% spot on. Bendtner thinks he’s so much better than he actually is. The truth is, his finishing is woeful. The strike against Fenerbache could easily have ended up in the stand. He should have scored two or three times in the dying minutes against United. He very rarely finds a red (or yellow) shirt with his passing. Maybe Ade was far nearer the truth than we thought when he smacked him last season in the Spurs game. He’s had enough time to “develop” get rid now.

please lay off bendtner..yes he was awful the other night and was extremely frustrating but he is young and still needs time to develop..i think he has a lot to give to our team and i think he will come out of this tough period for him..When he came on against chelsea he did a superp job at winning ball and throw-ins..! give him time..i bet he will come good yet..

Wenger knows what hes doing and obviously sees something in him, and its just taking longer than thought to come out, ill support him aslong as he remains at the club.
we have enough people trying to rubbish the club at the moment with out us lot starting.

please lay off Bendtner… he wasnt the only one at fault the other night. He has alot of potential and we need to have patience. As somebody said above Ade wasnt a world beater his 1st season either. i remember him scoring against the yids in the derby on a 1 v 1 with Robinson and i couldnt believe he scored. with one big goal Bendtner will flourish.

in wenger we trust

He is by far the worst striker we have ever had on our team. Seriously, I am shocked that he keeps getting picked to play on the first team. He has no touch. He can barely stop the ball. Watch the games that he plays and see how many times he stops the ball and goes backward. He almost never takes on a defender and goes forward. Even when he goes forward, he does not have the skill or speed to go by many defenders. He is just not good enough to play for Arsenal. It doesn’t matter that he… Read more »

I think this article is a disgrace. Bendtner is top quality, and with Adebayor as another prolific goalscorer, it is one of the great mysteries in football how they are not in the runnings for World Footballer….

It’s an opinion article by a respected writer. He can have his opinion on the player, just like you are allowed yours on this article.
