Frank-ly, He's Not Amused

Frank-ly, He's Not Amused

Frank Rijkaard has been left fuming that Thierry Henry has comitted his future to the Gunners, he seemed pretty sure he would get his man, but now demands an explination from club sporting director, Txiki Beguiristain.

Not only does Txiki Beguiristain have the most ridiculous name in world football, but he now has an anrgy Dutchman on his case. Rijkaard and his band of merry men, over turned the Gunners 2-1 in Paris on Wednesday night, but the catalans appear to be less happy than Arsenal come the end of the week.

Henry was hotly tipped to join Barca, but now, the roles have been reversed as the losers become the winners, and the mugs who were wearing Barcelona shirts with 'Henry' printed on the back are a few quid out of pocket. Funny.

Frank Rijkaard said,

'It's certain he (Henry) was interested in participating in this project and he told a lot of people that,' stated the Dutch coach. 'When something like this happens it is Txiki who must respond, I can only talk about people who are already in the dressing room. 'After Txiki has spoken perhaps I will be able to add something more.'

Oh well Frankyboy, you'll just have to be content with Ronaldinho, or some other lesser player.

Wait until E'to packs his bags and moves to London to join Henry. My guess is Rijkaard will really hit the roof.

They beat us in the final, yeah. But we got the biggest prize of all. Thierry Henry. And Rijkaard knows that.

That's funny Dew, because all season you have been leaving comments such as "Henry is off to Barca lalalalalala" and that "Barca will rule with Henry" I can dig them up if you want?!?! Barcelona maybe a bigger club than us, but in the same vein, we are so much bigger than you. Bigger stadium, more money, more trophies...............so if you think we are crap, what does that make you??

Actually Dew on the 'who is richer' issue you are wrong. According to the latest Deloitte rich list Arsenal are richer than Barcelona. 1 (1) Man Utd £171.5m 2 (4) Real Madrid £156.3m 3 (3) AC Milan £147.2m 4 (10) Chelsea £143.7m 5 (2) Juventus £142.4m 6 (7) Arsenal £115m 7 (13) Barcelona £110.1m 8 (6) Inter Milan £110.3m 9 (5) Bayern Munich £110.1m 10 (8) Liverpool £92.3m We also have a better stadium(not bigger) and arguably a larger worldwide fan base. And your statement about arabs just goes to show why Henry doesn't want to play in a country riddled with racist rednecks like yourself.

homie... english isn't your first language? maybe numbers will be simpler for you. http://www.forbes.com/lists/2006/34/Revenues_1.html. The estimated valuation is based on debt and other incomes based on Deloitte's source. I don't know where you get your data. Ya better check yourself before you break yourself fool!.... Who needs Henry. A lot of fluff and no show under pressure. Keep deceiving yourself about how great Henry and that Barca has lost a great bid.. while the cup is sitting pretty in Barcelona.. Get off your high horse... you got beat by a better team.. nuff said..
