Yesterday the news broke that Thierry Henry has left Barcelona to head for USA, having signed for New York Red Bulls. What a plonker, why would a player like him go off to a country where ‘soccer’ is way down the pecking order of sports??
He’s only 32 years old and still has two or three seasons left at the top, shame he didn’t give Arsene a call and ask to come back home. Arsenal is his home, it always will be, just think how he could have helped Theo, Chamakh and all the young strikers. I’m sure he would have taken a pay cut to come back :)Money has to be the reason he’s gone to the States, not that he probably needs it but why would a player of his stature go and play there otherwise? Surely he would have been better off coming home or returning to France?
But hang on, why would he go to France right now, hasn’t the French Footballing nation taken it upon themselves to blame his handball against the Irish, for their dismal performance in South Africa.
Anyway, as far as i’m concerned, England and Arsenal are is home and why move further away from his only child..
On to Wenger…. Should he stick with his own principles, or start to juggle a few with experience??
KTR7 has this view on life under Arsene Wenger…..
What Arsene Wenger is doing will one day be remembered along with Lobanovsky’s Kyiv of 70s, the great side Ajax of 70′s, Sacchi’s Milan, SAF’s ‘kids’ and Barcelona 2008 – present day.
What Wenger has to juggle with is to fill the final piece of the puzzle which is to buy or not to buy. We reproach him when he says that buying the Alonso’s of this world will kill Denilsong or Diaby, to us it’s absolutely ridiculous because who wouldn’t want Alonso?
Hang on though, what if we buy Alonso and let Diaby go, he then goes on to become a world beater only for us to go after him later. By then he’s valued at 80mil – we won’t want to pay but do we resort to say he has London Colney DNA?
Barcelona traded Cesc for Silvinho, but right now they are regretting it. I’m not for one minute saying that Denilsong or Diaby will win golden balls but it’s good to view a situation from all angles. Barcelona has bought David Villa…yay! But it diminishes Bojan’s chances. If he leaves for a major European club and develops to a balon’dor contestant what will Barcelona do?
Was it worth enjoying 3-4 seasons of David Villa over a decade of Bojan?
Arsene Wenger’s job is difficult as it is – a bit like juggling a small blanket on a cold night.
If you cover your feet the head feels cold and vice-versa.
Wenger may or may not find the optimum point but he will for sure will leave a legacy. Who knows maybe the Emirates will be known as the Wenger arena in years to come just like Santiago Bernabeu for Madrid?
