Henry - Better Than Champions League

Grinning like a proud father, Arsene Wenger claimed the resigning of Thierry Henry was better than winning the Champions League.

Le Boss said he had two aims at the begining of the week, one, to win the Champions League and two, to secure the signing of Thierry Henry. Well one out of two wasn't bad, and the gaffer believes the one we got was the best of the two. And I'm with him.

To be crowned Champions of Europe would have been amazing, it would have been one of the greastest nights in my football supporting life, but if that title would have signalled the end of King Henry's Arsenal reign, then we would have been much worse off for it.

We have been acussed of being a one man team, which to me is crazy, every team has their main man, the player they look to in times of need, Henry is that player for us. However, his signiture does not only signify another four years of amazing football from the Frenchman, but also a window of opportunity to lure some of the cream of world football to Ashburton Grove. We will be playing in one of the most amazing arena's in club football, with some amazing players both young and old and with Henry as captain, there is nothing we can't achieve.

So, while winning the Champions League is still only a dream, the best player in the world commiting himself to the Gunners is not.

Arsenal through and through.

Yes it is. It might sound like the consolation prize, but for me this is way better. We've got the best player in the world and that beats any bit of silver!

'Bring back Kenny', that name tends to suggest a certain mistrust in your current squad Liverpudlian! English football has never seen the likes of Henry before, he makes Dalglish look Sunday League.

GunnerBlood- My user name merely expresses a desire I have to see King Kenny back at our club in some capacity. As for Henry, there's no doubting he is a brilliant player, so good in fact that one day he may even be good enough to be mentioned in the same breath as the Legendary Dalglish who, among his many other achievements, actually scored the WINNING goal in the European Cup final.

Great news about Henry. The Premiership and Arsenal will be a better place with the main man still playing in an Arsenal shirt.

Glad he'll still be around to torment us, he is a genuinely good guy and a pleasure to watch. Title of this article says it all, if you had won the Cup do you think he would have gone, having achieved it all with Arsenal?

Its difficult to say West1, it certainly is a possibility. What has happend has happened, we are not the Champions of Europe, but we certainly have one of the best players in the world still at our club, so who am I to grumble.
