Season 14/15

Nicklas Bendtner (32) – After almost 10 years at Arsenal and two loans he left for free to Wolfsburg. He was mostly used as a sub, but had some good matches in Europe. His second season wasn’t used as much and at the end of the year Wolfsburg he played less and less. End of April they terminated his contract because he didn’t show up for training, oversleeping and “other indiscretions”. He had a short stay at Nottingham Forest which didn’t go well at all. Rosenborg (Norway) bought Bendtner and he did really well, won the league and was top scorer with 19 goals. Second season he won the double with Rosenborg and was used more as a target man and setting other players up, they won the double that year. Third season was very different after he had been violet in Denmark and the club didn’t want to have him anymore, he almost didn’t play and transferred to FC Copenhagen 9 months later. He failed to impress and didn’t get a new contract for 2020. Now free agent. He was quiet decent for Denmark when he played. He had a LOT of trouble with the law and the clubs he has been at. Most of it is drinking, driving violations, drink and driving, violence and in general bad behavior

Lukasz Fabianski (34) – He went to Swansea City and imminently became their first keeper and played almost every match for Swansea, only missing 3 games in 4 seasons. He has been criticized for errors leading to goals, but in general been good. His last season for Swansea he was voted player of the year, they unfortunately got relegated, but at least Lukasz made the season less little less embarrassing for them. Moved to West Ham, the season he stepped up and I would say is one of the best keepers in the league. This season he suffered a hip injury at the end of September, but is now back after almost 100 days away. Been good when he played, could maybe save them from relegation if the season is played. He is at the moment first keeper for Poland after being in the shadow of many other great Polish keepers

Park Chu-young (34) – 4 months after being released by Arsenal he signed for Al-Shabab (Saudi Arabia), he apparently tried to find another European club, but failed to find one. After just 6 months he moved back to South-Korea and FC Seoul. Won the cup in 2015 and the league in 2016. Don’t know how he is playing now, but seems to be doing good to ok

Emiliano Viviano (34) – After not playing for Arsenal he went to Palermo and loaned out the same summer to Sampdoria and then bought. He seemed to do well for Sampdoria, played most matches. Struggled with injuries for a lot at the start of 2017, but came back as their first keeper. As a keeper he got an unusual amount of yellow cards at Sampdoria, 12 in 110 matches. In 2018 he followed the Sampdoria manager that went to Sporting CP. He didn’t play a single match for them. After 1,5 years he was loaned out to SPAL for 6 months, played most matches for them. Was released by Sporting in 2019. The same summer he had a trail in Inter, but Handanovic was expected back from injury before anticipated so he didn’t get the contract. He is now on free agent

Kim Källström (37) – After he had his loan rehabilitation at Arsenal he played most of the games for Sparta Moscow and scored 2 goals. He left for Grasshopper in Switzerland, was captain for the club and seemed to do well. Played most matches for them. After 1,5 years he ended his contract on a mutual agreement. He returned to Sweden and Djurgårdens. He played most of the games, scored 3 and 7 assists. Got player of the month award for September. He retired after the season

Benik Afobe (27) – January 2015 Wolves took the chance on Afobe and he quickly got in to the starting eleven. He also started playing for DR Congo’s national team in 2015. In the summer he was a popular man, but Wolves insisted on keeping him. When the January transfer window opened Bournemouth came and bought him for a record breaking 10M£. He did ok and was a starter for most of the matches. Next season he became more of a sub. He was loaned back to Wolves and helped them win the promotion to the Prem. After the season Wolves bought him again and loaned him to Stoke straight after. After 6 months Stoke bought him after doing fairly well for them. This season he was loaned out to Bristol City. He had a wonderful start scoring 3 in 5 games, he was very unlucky and got a season ending ACL injury. Later the same year his daughter got very ill and was brought to the hospital, but unfortunately her life could not be saved, leaving the family heartbroken. In an interview recently he said to be looking forward to playing again and be part of the team again. He seems to be in a good mental state
