According to The Chronicle (best paper in the world), NUFC are seriously considering putting a bid in for wannabe best striker in the world Danish International Nicklas Bendtner.
Now whenever I've watched this lad play for Arsenal he always leaves me with a sense of nothingness. He is the epitome of the 'Hit and Miss' striker. Full of talent, shows it on occasions (against Toon to boot, see below), but just isn't consistent enough to be considered reliable.
However saying all of that. When you look at what we have at the moment and as long the fee is modest enough, I would welcome this still quite young, talented, hit and miss striker. As having Hit and Miss in the team is a lot better than having nothing.
Speaking of Danish strikers, The Chronicle in the same piece http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/newcastle-united/nufc-news/2011/08/11/alan-pardew-lining-up-bendtner-bid-72703-29217258/#ixzz1UiOjmqzB also reports that Peter Lovenkrands could be on his way back to Rangers. My view on Peter is he has always been on the fringes of the side, who is capable of chipping in with a goal or assist now and again, and has never set my world on fire. A nice solid pro. If he were to leave, he wouldn't really be that missed.
If I were given the choice between young, arrogant, talent, with flashes of brilliance - or experienced (old), solid, average, reliability...........I'd take the former every day of the week!
But that's just my personality!
