Will He, Won't He?
So Thierry Henry has finally broken silence over his future. That's good news for us, but you wonder if he's saying that because he meant it, or was it just to please his chairman, manager, fans, media and the tea lady?
Ian Wright definitely thinks he'll leave.
I'm 50-50 on this. Being an Arsenal fan since the early 90s has taught me to take everything with a pinch of salt. Overmars won't leave. Petit loves the club. Anelka to fight on. We're signing Robinho. Baptista confirmed. Surrreeeeeeeee...
Back to the Henry argument.. On the one hand, Barca is arguably the best team around at the moment (Chelsea fans, I did say "arguably") and him moving there would be like the icing on the cake.
But on the other hand, does Barca really want to break up the devastating trio of Ronalteetho-Eto'o-Messi? Where's he gonna play? Would Rijkaard want to put Ron or Messi further back into midfield where they can do less damage? Would Henry get to play and be THE MAN that all fans worship at the Nou Camp like the God-like status he currently enjoys at Highbury?
Its just too sad that finally we are moving to a top notch stadium and we don't have Vieira, Bergkamp and possibly Henry leading us out.
