2 weeks ago i was living in dread when the sports headlines read "Henry to Barca?" And i thought to myself. Yeah of course clubs will be going for the great Thierry Henry. And it happens every year that there are offers for him to leave Arsenal. But as usual i would brush it off. But as the days went, the man that made me fall in love with the game and support the team I love is leaving for another club.
What a day it was. And of course you will get all the sms's going.. "So how?", "Arsenal is going down!" Even the occasional .. "Would you like to support my team?" Yes it's true the man is a great player and will be missed. And definetely the team will feel the pinch of missing one of the best strikers in the world. But we all know this. The team is not made of one man.
So with the new season coming upon us, I will be looking forward to seeing my favorite team move forward and prove their worth.
The only consolation I have is that Henry leaves to my favorite Spanish team, although I never am able to catch them playing, instead of to another English team.
So Thierry, thanks for the memories man. You will be missed.
