'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Henry Anger As Future Is Questioned

Arsenal captain Thierry Henry suffered a fit of rage today as he was continuously questioned with regards to his Gunners future.

After a series of questions regarding his Arsenal career Henry finally cracked when it was suggested that he 'owed' something to Arsene Wenger and Arsenal.

'Who do I owe, and for what?' fumed the Frenchman 'Don't you see my commitment on the pitch? I think you can see it.'

'I'm a human being like you are and need time to take my decision, that's all. I don't think about the word owe. I owe something to my Dad, yes, who put me on this planet.'

'We are here talking about the semi-final and we are here to talk about a great opportunity for the club. I think sometimes it's a bit of a shame that people single me out and try to speak about other stuff.'

Henry will questionably be the key player in the two legged affair versus Villarreal in the semi final of the Champions League and he admitts that this is the one trophy he always wanted to win.

'Since the beginning I wanted to win the competition and obviously it's a fact that's the big thing missing on my CV,' said Henry.

'It has been missing for me and for the club and the only players that had won it in the team before was Kanu and Marc Overmars. So we all have that hunger.

'Every year we've felt we need to win it. When we were unbeaten we said we have to win it and we didn't. Every year our mind is the same - on the Champions League. We always try to win the thing.'

Commitment on the pitch yes, seemingly an autograph at the SIGN HERE end of a contract of employment is beyond his remit. He's leaving you. Have you got his replacement lined up or are you simply going to fake being suprised when he sends you a text from the airport?

I won't be suprised either way, but if he does leave we will cope, I'm sure I heard these same sentiments when Ian Wright left, you lot from down the road saying we'll go down hill with no one to score goals. Players can always be replaced, and while it would be much more preferable to have Henry in the team, life will go on and we will continue to be a great team. FACT.

Pompey fan here, but with great respect for Arsene Wenger. If Henry goes, then i'm sure he'll uncover another diamond. Good luck in the CL.

Wow, a note of resignment from you at last. This will be an interesting season...
weststandvoice
Not a note of resignement, just the fact that anything is possible in football, and the fact that he is taking his decision so seriously means there is a possibility, but it's still more likely he will stay than leave.
Rocky7
No player is bigger than Arsenal, yes if and it is still IF, he goes, I have every confidence our manager will uncover another Gem, Thierry has given us some fantastic memories and his departure will not scar them. We all hope he stays of course we do, but Arsenal are big enough to come back, I have every confidence, its been proven time and time again..Ian Wright, Overmars, petit, to name a few....Come on Thierry Put pen to Paper!
