It's All Over For Henry

It's All Over For Henry

Thierry Henry has been ruled out for the rest of the season in a campaign that has been riddled with injury.

Titi was rushed back from injury to face PSV in an attempt to save Arsenal's season, which ultimately ended in a glorious failure.

A failure which has now been compounded with the news that Arsene Wenger's gamble cost us double after news filtered through that Henry will now be out for the rest of the season.

"Thierry Henry will be out for a minimum of three months," said Arsène Wenger.

"Unfortunately this means he will now miss the rest of this season both domestically and internationally, but we are confident that he will be ready for the start of next season."

Lets hope the rest will see Henry return to his world beating best.

We all knew that it was a bad thing for him to return to the pitch against PSV. He needs a bloody holiday, which in a way is what he's getting. He has to start again next season, anew. I for one only think this is a good thing.

Henry did what he had to do on Wednesday...I wouldn't expect the team captain to do any less then try to help the team. That said, I wasn't expecting the cost to be this high, but as long as he's back healthy next year then I can deal with it. That said, we're short as ***** up front now...Beast, Aliadiere and Walcott are all we've got for strikers for the next few weeks. As if we didn't have enough scoring problems, heh.

I knew something like this was going to happen...it was a mistake to play him. Shinobi i would expect a captain to know when he is not fit to play he shouldn't play...i would rather play a fit Beast or Ali then an injured Henry.

I suppose a complete rest to heal whatever injuries and come back next season totally refreshed is the only good thing out of this.

this is a good thing IMO i kinda expected it as i suspect many of us did. i hope he rests fully and comes back with a vengance. i think his body must have really been suffering from last season

Don't dishearten. We have & will mangage without TH14 for the remainder of the season. For me the last 11 games gives Arsene the opportunity to discover our best starting 11, experiment a little, tinker a touch and generally move the team forward towards the exciting future we've all been talking about this season. I for one would like to see Theo play down the middle some more, and give Juston Hoyte more time at right back....am unsure about Eboue and his major attitude/temper concerns

It's always sad to hear when a player is hit by injury even if he plays for the opposition - we wish him a speedy recovery and who knows, he might make a fleeting appearance in May!

Cheers for the good words merlin. If Henry didn'tt play and the team had lost, I bet more than a couple of people would've criticized him for not showing up when the team needed him most. It was a big gamble, but let's not act like Henry made this decision in a vacumn...ultimately it was Wenger's call. Henry wanted to play against Spurs earlier this year, but it was Wenger who told him to sit.

I agree with merlin, not good seeing a player gettin' injured for so long(unless you're silly billy).
