So after all the speculation it appears that Thierry Henry is going to leave Arsenal for Barcelona and all that is left is for him to pass a medical and then he will be on his way for £16 million.
Even though I don?t talk about club football much I am an Arsenal fan and although I?m not as much of a fanatic as I was when I was 18 I still keep an eye on all the latest news, and to be honest this doesn?t come as much of a suprise as everyone has their price nowadays. It is a shock but not a suprise and will be odd to not have arguably our best player not with us anymore.
But in all honesty maybe it was the time for him to move on as he was fairly anonymous last season with injuries, fatigue, and a lack of form and couldn?t contribute as much as we are normally accustomed to. Or maybe this is just me trying to soften the blow.
Who will Arsenal sign as a replacement? Will they sign anyone?? I doubt they?ll make any big transfers but maybe it will be the chance to see Walcott step up, and it?ll also be good to see a fit again Van Persie show us what he can do and take centre-stage. Let?s just hope that we are treated to a better season than last and that this should be seen as the turning over of a new leaf.
