The giant Dane came off the bench to great success last night, scoring a late winner when he showed a calm and composed nature to his finish, which has been lacking in his displays for some time now. But is the jury still out on the young striker?
I would say that 95% of the time I see him in action, he doesn’t look anywhere near good enough to warrant a place on the Arsenal bench, let alone the starting eleven. However, until Wenger gets Eduardo back to full fitness, do they have any option than to keep him in case of injury and suspensions to their main attackers?
With the magical Carlos Vela to add to the mix, which includes the Cro-zillian, Ade-pay-me-more and RVP, there may be no immediate need to bring in another forward, but do the fans still think that Nicklas is woefully below the standard usually associated with the club or does he deserve another chance?
Personally, I think he could benefit from another loan spell with a struggling Premier League side for half a season, or even back to Birmingham challenging in the Championship. The main thing he needs to learn is how to convert the countless chances he finds himself gifted by the club’s providers.
Do Arsenal fans feel the youngster has what it takes or is he simply not good enough?
