Today Thierry Henry confirmed he will be moving to Barcalona for £16mil. Should he have gone?
Should he have signed last year?
Will he be in the starting line up?
Will a Barcalona player go to Arsenal?
Will he be better or worse in La Liga?
Post your views.
Why not give us your views too, panic15, rather than just asking the questions?
Anyway, here's my opinion:
Should he have gone? Yes, undoubtedly. It will be for the good of both himself and Arsenal FC. They have relied on him too heavily in the last few seasons. That's not a great situation for either party to be in. Not that I want to see him go - he's been a fantastic player and great to watch, and will be sorely missed by everyone but opposing defenders!
Should he have signed last year? Probably - I reckon the price tag would have been even higher then.
Will he be in the starting line-up? If he stays clear from injury, yes, he'll start for Barca.
Will a Barca player go to Arsenal? Erm... not sure really... probably not. I can't see Arsene Wenger doing any kind of big deals when this will likely be his last season in charge at the Gunners.
Will he be better or worse in La Liga? Only time will tell, but he'll surely score plenty of goals. Good luck to him, I'm sure he will be a huge hit in Spain.
Oh really? Arsene Wenger will allow that?
But this ist great for Barca... if Henry is coming to this team. Eto'o und Thierry Henry... So i think, next season is Barca the best team in spain. Henry was the best player of Arsenal London, who will his close his gap?
And by the way: In July, Bayern will play against Barcelona. It's a friendly macht hopefully with Thierry Henry... Great
But what is with Eto?
He perhaps leaves Barcelona and will go to Chelsea London... So, if it happens this, it would be a attentuation...
It's a better deal for henry signing up for Barcelona. Arsene Wenger depends too much on him, and the result is not buying more players for the team. ltes face it Henry is one of the best strikers in the world and he needs awards to show for his talents. I know he told the Arsenal management last season to get more top class players, they didn't i think it's best he stays with other world class talents and Barcelona is a good starting point for a new vision.
Henry is a huge player and this transfer is huge. I'm surprised he wasn't worth more. This will leave Arsenal distorted. Two questions arise:
1. Can Arsenal even qualify for the Champions League after this blow?
- I mean they're in a total slump. A player like Henry going means a lot.
2. Are Barcelona the next Galacticos?
- Henry, Messi, Eto'o, Ronaldinho + bids for Chivu, Abidal + Yaya Toure
Well, who knows!!!
AVG, I don't think Arsenal are going to have too many problems qualifying for the Champions' League - simply because there are no decent teams to challenge them for that 4th place. Okay, their local rivals Tottenham have a chance, maybe someone like Newcastle at a push; but realistically they still have good quality players and an excellent manager in what is, essentially, a mediocre Premier League.
Well, yeah, if anyone is to steal that 4th place from Arsenal, it's Tottenham. Although they may still qualify, I don't think that they'll go any higher.
About BARCA, they've captured Yaya Toure and Eric Abidal.
i think henry's move is good for barca, but bad for arsenal. too bad for arsenal for letting a good player leave
Barca will be unbeatable next season, Henry is just GREAT!
