Henry: I'd Prefer To Be United

Arsenal captain Thierry Henry is choosing to keep his feet on the ground and concentrate on the rest of the season......and let the Gooners do the celebrating.

We all know that to do the 'double' over Man Utd is a fantastic achievement. Thierry Henry acknowledges that fact, but says he prefer to be in their position than ours.

And while I wouldn't want to give that last minute winner up for anything, any sensible Gooner would have to agree.

"I just think it was a good weekend for Liverpool [who beat Chelsea] and for us.' Said the skipper

"But if you don`t carry on then it won`t mean anything. You need to [go on] and make sure you can remember this game and say it was the turning point. At the moment it is a great win don`t get me wrong but, as I said, I would rather be top of the League than do the double [over Manchester United].'

"It is always something great to beat them. But at the same time it is important to go on a great run now and make sure you can capitalise on the big game we had on Sunday."

However, I feel the win was a platform on which a great Arsene Wenger team will be built. Team consolidation, spirit & camaraderie will gel this young Arsenal side, and I fully expect to be pushing for the title once again within the next two years.

busy morning rocky ? hehe, well our captain fantastic is right, whilst i came away with a massive smile on my face and walked around yesterday feeling on top of the world, we all know i have been to the top of the world ! reality is we are 12pt behind united, yet 12 pts infront of our supposed rivals spuds, so not all is bad eh ? we have to go on and win 14 games straight, not impossible, but then we need united to lose 2 games and draw 3, and then its down to goal difference which united are +10 better off.. its a big ask for us, nothing is impossible and what makes our game great is that anything can happen, but I would like to finish higher than last year, for me cups are important for us, so silverware this year in that form and for chelsea to fall from grace and finish 4th would be hysterical.

I will be more than happy with a top four finish, a run in the champions league and/or the league or fa cup. Next season will be massive for us!!

I don't see the United game as a turning point. I think that came at Anfield in the F.A.Cup. League wise it was Blackburn away. I think we should just keep focus on catching Liverpool, then Chelsea and not set daft targets. We must remember that there are 3 teams above us that have gained more points than us because they have won more games. We are in the ascendency which can only be good at this stage of the season though and we have enjoyed some great wins this season (games we'd have certainly lost or drawn last season). The future is bright indeed.

I'm hoping the younger legs in our team will give us a bit of an edge, Wenger's teams, because of the way he structures his fitness training, always finish the season strongly. That said, the league is gone this year, a Cup win, any cup win, could really be the making of this team and be the catalyst for greater things.

i think we can finish 3rd this season and win both FA and Carling Cup and we will have a good run in champs league!

I m really looking forward for the calring cup clash of The ArSeNal and the SPuds which i think we can win even if we dont i will still be happy for the kids and one kid in specailly Denilson the little great Brazilian

no, Rocky - next season, WE WILL BE MASSIVE. the team seem to have found that steel and 'dig-in-ability' (made up word, but hell, if Arsene can introduce 'footballistically' then i can introduce that one, even if it is pants...), let us hope it is a permanent feature, and that this is a watershed in the development of our young team... »»Arsene Knows««

I agree that next season we may well see this team leave a stamp on all the competitions. Bringing in a keeper if Jens leaves and a winger (Ribery?) in for Freddie, we'll have one of the biggest and strongest squads in Europe. The competition for places at every position is fantastic, injuries/suspensions should not have a significant effect. So every reason to be optimistic!
