Arsenal Fans Awake To A New Dawn

Arsenal Fans Awake To A New Dawn

So it really is true. Our skipper is leaving. Barcelona finally broke our resistance. Bastards.

Only the other week, I penned an article suggesting that if Heny's heart wasn't in it, he should be sold, however that still didn't prepare me for the feeling I had in my stomach this morning upon reading Thierry's open letter to The Sun.

Our record breaking goal scorer says he's leaving, despite committing himself to the club last summer, because of the club's instability following the innocuous departure of his long time friend David Dein, and the apparent uncertainty of the long term situation of our wonderful manager Arsene Wenger.

Thierry Henry is one of the best players ever to grace the English game, no no scratch that, Thierry Henry is THE best player ever to grace the English game, he was the only Arsenal player ever to score more than 200 club goals, certainly no other player scored them like he did, and yet today we find ourselves without this inspirational player.

And I tell you what.

It hurts.

However, today is a new dawn. Today begins a whole new era in the epic story that is Arsenal Football Club. We struggled through diversity before, this is not a new concept to we gooners. So, whilst it is difficult to find the silver lining, it's certainly going to be interesting around here over the coming months.

Something I've often reiterated is that we are all Arsenal fans, that means to say that we are supporters, both financially and spiritually of this great football club. We all have our favorite players, most peoples was, is, Thierry Henry, but these men become our idols because they wear the famous red and white shirt, no other reason. We may have admired them if they'd played for another club, but do you think we'd be so gutted about them leaving for pastures new if we didn't love the club that they played for so damn much? I think not.

I hear of Gooners suggesting they will not be renewing their season tickets after receiving information of Titi's departure, do you know what I say to them? GOOD. I'll get to the top of the waiting list faster. If you can't accept that players move on, and are going to behave like a child stomping your fists and crying that we are a selling club, then you don't deserve the ticket in the first place.

So let us grieve for our Thierry Henry, but let us not forget why we love him in the first place. Let us console each other safely in the knowledge that our beloved Arsenal Football Club continues, let us come together as Gooners, beat our chests and support our club forevermore.

So long Thierry, it was one hell of a ride.
