    Sorry I'm not buying it. Whichever way you slice it he couldn't score when others were scoring around him. This time last year we were fourth highest in the league in terms of goals scored so it's not like we weren't creating chances. He was just shite at getting himself into positions and on the end of balls.

    I can see how this conclusion was drawn based on stats, but the reality was something totally different.

    If we're honest, there was little rhyme or reason to the Montanier approach & certainly nothing obvious to cater for Bendtners strengths for the 7 games he started.

    Truth is the goals were spread as randomly as the approach.

    I saw most of Bendtner's games, and in each one he was head and shoulders above the rest of the players around him.
    For me, it was his arrogance that led to his downfall at Forest.
    Many years ago my mates had a band.
    I am not at all musically gifted - love music, and can talk about it quite sensibly, but haven't got the necessary to actually play n instrument.
    However, at Uni I palled up with a semi-pro bassist.
    He had played on European Tours with some reasonably well known acts.
    So one day I got Paul to go and practise with my mates' band.
    He was so far ahead of them in his musical education and technical ability that after an hour he put his bass down, suggested we all go to the pub where he attempted to explain what he had been doing with the bass lines.
    My mates couldn't get close to understanding.
    We had a few beers, had a good laugh and off he went.
    He could never have played with my mates on stage and after that first embarrassing hour my mates knew they would never be able to complement his ability.
    Shame.
    For me that's what the Bendtner/Forest experience was all about.
