Platini; Give Your Head A Shake

Platini; Give Your Head A Shake

French footballing legend has said Thierry Henry has made a massive mistake penning a new deal at Arsenal rather than heading for Spain and Barcelona.

Outragously Platini suggests that what Henry lacks to be a great player is titles, even though he has won two premier league titles, three fa cups and help Arsenal to go down in history as the longest unbeaten side in English football history, smashing scoring records along the way.

'I sincerely believe he made a mistake in not signing for Barcelona,' Platini told The Sun. 'I told him so and said the same to Barca president Joan Laporta. Henry would have grown a lot at Barcelona.'

'Thierry Henry is a truly great player and is on the verge of over-taking me as a goalscorer for France. However, he hasn't achieved the same category of other great stars. Why? Because he lacks playing in a great team and winning titles with his club like he has done with France, where he has been European and world champion.'

Some may question my slating of the 'great' Platini's comments, but remember, this is the guy who wanted tackling to be taken out of the game.

Europe has always trembled in fear for the Spuds. No seriously, I was chatting to some Villarreal fans before our semi final in spain, and honestly, I was telling them Spuds were our next door neighbours, they'd never even heard of you! That's nearly as funny as when I was watching Chelsea v. Bremen in Hamburg and a German guy asked me if Chelsea had had parts of their ground closed for bad behaviour!

this only shows that Thierry is Arsenal through and through, he didnt listen to what platini said and decided to stay, because he knows he can achieve everything at our great club, and the joy of playing and winning at arsenal, he can never have it at any other team, you look at ashley cole playing for chelsea, and i sometimes feel he looks like a lost boy, ands compare that with gallas, who looks like he has been a gooner for years..

He was right, if Henry joined Barca he would be part of the best attacking combination the game has seen! At Arsenal he is your only top class striker!

'Henry would have grown a lot at Barcelona.' - Er...yeah. How the hell can Henry grow anymore at this point in time? Has anyone scored more goals in Europe the last five years? Platani simply doesn't view the EPL in the same light as Liga and probably Serie A, which to my understanding is a common theme with a lot of continental types. Nothing to get too pertubed about. This just gives me more reason to root against Barca this season though...would be a laugh riot if they didn't win Liga or even make it to the Champions League knockout phase.

Henry is a gonner through and through, and on Ashely cole, he does look lost and your right that Gallas does look at home which does show something.
