Farewell Then – Thierry Henry.

It was with a degree of sadness that I read in today’s newspapers that Thierry Henry is to leave Arsenal and join Barcelona in a deal worth umpteen million pounds.  It was Henry that, in my opinion, made Arsenal watchable, where before they were deadly dull. 

It was nothing less than a pure joy to watch his skill on Match of The Day on a Saturday evening.   He scored 226 goals in 369 games, and won the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award a record three times.   English football will be a less exciting and thrilling place without his trademark va-va voom.

Fare thee well, then Monsieur Henry.   Shame you couldnae have signed for Dumbarton!  We need ya more than Barcelona ever will…..

  1. If nothing else, it’ll be a good excuse for you to go to Barcelona so you can watch him play.

  2. Great photos. I tried to leave a message to say I’d seen them, but couldn’t find a comment box. So I’ve hijacked Thierry’s slot. You have way more va-va-voom than he does.
    air kisses all round.

  3. Thanks for the comment, again, madbadhairday. Methinks you are my biggest fan lol! AS much as I love Thierry, I’m sure he has nowhere near as much va-va-voom as you do!
    air kisses right back atcha
