The Sunday Times - Utter Rubbish

The Sunday times today reports that Arsenal's departing captain and star striker, Thierry Henry has said that Arsenal could fall apart.

The headline on the back of The Sunday Times today reads: 'Uncertain Arsenal May Collapse Says Henry.'

They go on to say in the article that in an interview with French newspaper L'Equipe Henry said: 'David Dein leaving has destabilised the club and the manager, triggered off the whole process and set me thinking. If you take away the foundations of a building, it can collapse.'

Now, I know you could argue that the journalist responsible for this 'creative writing' (Ian Hawkey) has read betwen the lines, but there's reading between the lines, and there's publishing complete rubbish.

So as you can see, Henry has not said that Arsenal could fall apart.

Furthermore, in an interview with ATVO Henry was asked: Turning to the future of the Club, if you read the media at the moment it’s crisis at Arsenal and the walls of Emirates Stadium are coming down. Surely that’s not true, the players and the set-up are far too good?


Henry replied: “The set-up and the facilities are far too good and we still have a lot of the main people who are staying. As I have said so many times, the team here is growing and there is some amazing talent here and I do think this is the right time for Robin van Persie, Emmanuel Adebayor and Nicklas Bendtner who is coming back from Birmingham, to shine. Hopefully they will do it. As soon as you know they can do it, they will forget about me, that’s the way it is.

“When Patrick left everyone was devastated, including me and then after that a little guy came around called Cesc Fabregas and, although I didn’t agree with it, everyone started saying ‘who needs Patrick Vieira?’ For me the guys we have here are amazing, but you always need Patrick Vieira.

“I don’t believe what everybody is saying about the Club collapsing, having a lack of players and everyone leaving. I think it is untrue. Cesc Fabregas is a world class player, Robin van Persie is a world class player, hopefully Adebayor will become a world class player, Tomas Rosicky is a world class player, Jens Lehmann is a world class player, Toure and Gallas are world class players. You can go through the whole squad like that.

“As I said to you, I will now become now an Arsenal fan and will be looking at every result and I’m sure the team will be successful.”


So Mr Hawkey, next time you need an eye-catching headline, trying doing your job first and do some bloody research!
