Titi's 'ta-ta'

Titi's 'ta-ta'

Thierry Henry spoke yesterday of how he missed life in London, and how he likes the atmosphere at Barça.

Henry was quoted in the Daily mail saying, 'I miss London a lot and always will. It's a great city, I had a great life there. I lived eight years there and it's not something I can forget just like that. I am having to play myself back into form because of the amount of games I missed and it will take time.

'I played eight seasons without missing anything. It was a shock to the system to not play for six months and coming back has not been easy, but I am starting to feel better.

'The pain is going away and I felt sharper for the first time against Real Zaragoza a couple of weeks ago. It's been a long time since I felt like that.

'The atmosphere is good at Barcelona. It is like a family and reminds me of Arsenal.'

The former Gunners skipper, and player-who should-have-been-voted-the-world's-best (on three occasions...) also said he plans to come back to say a proper goodbye to the Arsenal, expanding thus,

'I think I will try and do it in December because we have a winter break in Spain and I will have the time.

'I would rather go back in a non-playing situation and be able to enjoy it. I don't want to get drawn against Arsenal in the Champions League this season. That would not be a proper way to say goodbye to the fans.

'When I go I will probably just sit in the stands. I won't walk out on the pitch or anything like that.

'The focus should be on the team and I don't want to draw any attention away from them and what they're doing. They will be playing a game and I want to respect that.'

And that's good to hear. Not that Titi plans to come back and say 'hi'. I mean the whole 'not interfering in the playing side' thing. That's what we need to do - stay focused, and block out all outside interferences. We've got a title to challenge for (amongst other things). There's plenty of time for reminiscing and all that malarkey when we're celebrating a trophy.

All the same though, it's nice that 'the-artist-formerly-known-as-TH14' wants to come and re-acquaint himself with the best football played in Europe, eh?

Wingston, While Arsenal play great, the best football in Europe is being played in Barcelona at the moment.

kev - in one of the seasons Henry came second to Ronaldinho, the goofy one scored something like 17 goals and 10 assist, Henry had 38 goals and 23 telling me he didn't deserve it? Take you Brazilian hat off and answer properly.

rocky that's a pointless attempt. You know he can't/won't.

John Doe - Where do you get your information? Considering Barcelona have only been on tv about 4 times this season due to contractual arguments with the TV companies, I wonder why you think this? The game where Henry bagged a hat-trick was against the worst side in the world, so really you're basing your entire opinion on the strength of three, maybe four games you may or may not have watched. We have had a better start to the season than Barca have, and if you alone consider the spectacular goals from Cesc, Adebayor, Diaby & van Persie in a few short games, then I'd have to say yours is an opinion I don't agree with.

I was going to comment on kev and JohnDoes comments but I have to say Rocky did it all great :) But really such a great player for this club needs a proper goodbye, but i would have to say December is way to soon. Actually I think a few years would be better.

Pointless *****in windups. More ********* come out of kevs mouth than his teams ex-manager. Every one in world football new that in the invincibles year, and the year he sibngle handedly drgged us into 4th place (with a little help from some bad lasagne) he desereved the world player of the year awards.

Rocky7, Fine if you don't agree with me but that's my opinion. By the way, I've seen more than four Barcelona games this season if you include the CL games, six to be exact. Long enough to form an opinion of how a club is playing don't you think?

TH is still one of my favourites, i find myself watching barcelona games nowadays only to catch a glimpse of TH. it would be nice for us to give him a proper send off and show our appreciation for all that he has done for the club. lets face it, he made us the envy of sooo many clubs around the world. "thierry hen-ry, thierry hen-ry"

i love Arsenal, but i have to say that barca play better at the moment because of Messi, Ronaldinho, Iniesta, Deco, etc.
