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…..
