33. Nicklas Bendtner

Nicklas made his mark in the Carling Cup this season after a prolific scoring run for Neil Banfield's reserve side, where he forged an excellent partnership with Italian striker Arturo Lupoli.

The Danish youth international made his first-team debut as a late substitute in the 3-0 victory at Sunderland and also came off the bench in the win against Reading. He replaced the injured Robin van Persie during the first half at Doncaster and almost capped an impressive display with a goal, only to see his effort cleared off the line.

At 6' 3", Nicklas towers over many defenders of his age and poses an obvious aerial threat, but he is equally impressive with the ball at his feet and has the ability to bring team-mates into the game.

My Year


Nicklas was in good scoring form for Championship side Birmingham in September. He hit the decisive goal in the 2-1 win over Hull but was dismissed in the 2-0 win over QPR. He was suspended for the 2-2 draw with Ipswich but came back in and scored in successive games against Wrexham and Leeds United. He ended the month by playing the first 82 minutes of a 1-1 draw with Leicester.


Nicklas made a flying start to his loan stint at Birmingham City, scoring the winner in the opening-day win over Colchester United before repeating the feat against Crystal Palace. The Dane started four games and made one substitute appearance during August.


Nicklas started four reserve games during March, scoring against Crystal Palace, Southampton and Charlton. An injury to Arturo Lupoli saw Nicklas link up well with new strike partner Anthony Stokes.


Nicklas started all three games for the reserves in February against Portsmouth, Chelsea and Tottenham.


A fruitful month for Nicklas saw him play 90 minutes in the Carling Cup win at Doncaster Rovers. After replacing the injured Robin van Persie just after the half-hour mark, Nicklas looked threatening both in the air and on the deck and had a goal-bound effort cleared off the line. The powerful front-man also started the Reserves' 2-1 win at Watford during December.


Nicklas played in both Reserve games in November and his partnership with Arturo Lupoli continued to blossom. He made his second first-team appearance for Arsenal as a late substitute for Quincy against Reading in the Carling Cup.
