The Sunday Mirror - Utter Sense

The Sunday Mirror - Utter Sense

After Simmonett's earlier article slamming the sh*t stirring of our British press, I can gladly report than one news paper seems to have gotten it right on this cold dark Sunday.

A rag that I would usually be weary of wiping my arse on through fear of ending up with more turd on my ring piece than when I started, has printed an article of truly astonishing astuteness.

There is much debate on this, and many many other forums, naturally, of Thierry Henry's transfer to Barcelona. Some gooners pay tribute to the fine French talisman, some vent their anger at a player who only last summer declared 'This is my last contract, I will never play in Spain'. Many show annoyance at a board who allowed the deal to take place for an apparent relatively small fee, and one or two rather amazingly blame Arsene Wenger for all this.

One thing, for me anyway, stands out in all this, and that's Thierry Henry would not be going anywhere without Arsene's say so.

Before we get to the cracking article I'm about to link you, a different article got my attention last night, it was titled Wenger feared superstar Henry was holding youngsters back . Which you can read here.

It basically suggests that Thierry Henry was pushed rather than jumped. Through fear of his young Gunners failing to progress, Arsene Wenger SOLD his record goal scorer. Some might find this a bit hard to believe, but didn't Titi only last year say 'The only way I would leave Arsenal would be if they fired me'?

Many people have mocked Henry for the reasons he has given for leaving, some slamming the club for allowing the striker to have his self glorifying interview. Is it not possible that Henry was allowed to leave in his own way, a dignified (as could possibly be) way for everything he has done for the club?

Arsene Wenger is a mild mannered man, a manager nick named Le Proff for his geeky bespectacled image, however he is more ruthless than people would (or wouldn't) like to believe, and this has been pointed out in the article in this Sunday newspaper. Click here to read 'Wenger the deal king.

Well done the Sunday Mirror for not jumping on the bandwagon.
