Henry To Put Sheffield To The Blade

Henry To Put Sheffield To The Blade

Speaking with Arsenal.com, Arsene Wenger has confirmed that it's likely Arsenal captain Thierry Henry will return to face Sheffield United, as will Robin van Persie.

Henry missed the magnificent victory over Man Utd at Old Trafford last Sunday, but looks to have recovered in time to play in the Premiership clash against Sheffield Utd at Ashburton Grove.

"Thierry is available and we should have Robin van Persie back too. We have no big injuries from last week. The other ones like Senderos, Diaby, Lauren and Clichy are not back yet but Henry is and Van Persie should be."

It will be good to see him back, almost always a real pleasure to watch!

Bringing him back early will see him limp off after seven minutes.

Do you need to rush him back? The boys did very well without him last Sunday.

I think TH will be up for this one, all our good results this season have come without him and he'll feel he has something to prove. I just hope in light of this he stops scowling at younger team mates for shooting.

It will be good to see him back. And hopefully a little sharper than the last couple of matches he had. I have a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach that there could be an upset tomorrow. Don't think we'll lose but a draw isn't out the question. It's the same as what happened last season, just when you think "well that was a good result, this is where our season sarts sorting itself out!!!" then we get a crappy result from a much smaller team. I know I'm sounding like Gelbs (haven't heard from him in a while, maybe he's realised what crap he's been talking for months and joined the Spurts sites to moan about there season).

I agree with you scooch, I'm nervous of a sloppy performance backing up a great win. I hope Henry is ready and hungry and grabs himself a brace. I think he'll be contending with a 10 man defence. Good luck to the 'pool v the spuds also.

I feel I should point out that le boss has once again shown his peerless class by defending Allardyce. Given the vitriolic abuse this slob has directed at Arsenal and Wenger, he should feel a pang of guilt. Wenger's courtesy is certainly a lot more than the oaf deserves and once again a lesson in class is dished out to an unwanted loudmouth.

well said LD. Allardyce and son are a disgrace and to think people wanted that fat idiot for england. I for one hope they are removed from football for it.
