No, I am not campaigning for restructuring of the United States Constitution that would allow Dubya a 3rd term...
"At one point it crossed my mind to leave,
but I think with my heart and my heart told me to stay."
Apparently my overnight wish came true, and it is all very true that Thierry Henry is staying at Arsenal and will be putting pen to paper on a 4 year contract extension. Titi will lead Arsenal out in August in their brand new 60,000 seat stadium at Ashburton Grove.
TH14. Ashburton Grove 2006-2010.
From the man himself:
“This is my last contract. It is where I belong.”
"The game reassured me of one thing I wanted to know - how far I can go with that team,” said Henry. “I know we lost but they showed me they are a team with heart and lots of quality. We can be so proud of what we did."
Looking forward to more of this.
Henry is Arsenal's all time leading goalscorer with 214 goals. 164 of these are in the Premiership, meaning that there is a realistic chance that he will surpass recently retired Alan Shearer's record of 260. Andy Cole is 2nd with 185 - he will likely be surpassed next season.
No disrespect to Ronaldinho, but Henry is the best player in the world. Actually I am going to do a comparison piece on these two next week. Anyhow, Arsenal can do great things in the next 5 years with Henry, the new stadium, and the ridiculous amount of uber-talented youngsters coming into the squad.
Oh, and Shaun Custis, your balls are once again safe.
