Thierry Henry is suffering at Barcelona and it breaks my heart to see the situation that he is in.
The man is a legend at Arsenal and I thought he would have ended his career with us. Obviously that didn't happen and although I, like every Gooner, was sad to see him leave, I wished him no malice and hoped he would be happy in Spain.
I wanted him to be successful at Barca (not at Arsenal's expense) because he is great player and provided us Gooners with so many great memories.
Thierry Henry is one of the greatest players of all time and we Gooners were privileged to have seen him in an Arsenal shirt for so long. Henry was privileged too, he had the best relationship with us and he knew it too. Hence the reason he has declared himself a Gooner for life.
To see him suffer like he is at Barca is a very sad sight. I believed he was about to tear the Spanish league up and become a Barca legend. If truth be told the move couldn't have gone more wrong for him.
He is played out of position all the time and isn't the main man at the club by far. He doesn't seem to get the adulation he received at Arsenal and that hurts him.
I believe Titi only left Arsenal for personal reasons. He suffered a bad break up with his wife and that is the main reason he left Arsenal for pastures new.
It's obvious that Henry needs to get out of Spain and quick. Would I want him back at Arsenal? No. My heart says yes but my brain disagrees. I couldn't bear to see Henry back at Arsenal struggling. He has suffered from injuries and isn't the same player we adored.
He needs to go to another club. Maybe Italy? The pace is slower and that may suit him. The USA has been bandied about. This makes sense for commercial reasons but the standard of football is way off the mark for a legend like Henry.
Whatever happens I want Henry out of Barca and enjoying his football again. I want to see that smile of his light up the pitch like we saw so many times.
Henry deserves better than his current situation and I hope that he gets it.
Keep it Goonerish..............
