Thierry coming back? If anyone of our ex players is going to return as a manager one day… I’d put money on it being him!
October 2, 2009
Thierry Henry, never mind your Ian Wright, Wright, Wrights of this world, Thierry is the real legend, well him, Dennis, Keown, Adams and Bould anyway, you could pick a mixture of those blokes and ask them to manage the Arsenal, now that would be something.
Arsene knows? Pfff… more like Geoff and Pedro know!
Yep, we both predicted it… me on Thursday night, Geoff yesterday. Now the coach reckons Thierry could one day grace the recaro seats of the Emirates!
“I can see that happening,” said Wenger. “I believe at some stage the legacy here has to go to some people who have had a big influence at this Club.
“One day they will want to work, maybe not necessarily with me but working because I will have to stop eventually. Maybe it will be me working with them!”
It’s all about Thierry coming back and lifting the treble in his first season. How amazing would that be? Double amazing I say.
In other news, Arsene professors his love for Arshavin. Did you see what I did there? It wasn’t funny was it…
Anyway, Wenger was positively gushing about his Russian playmaker,
“I love Arshavin because he has things that are just down to him.
“He is an intelligent player and he looks like he is a shrewd street player because he creates something always in unexpected situations.
“He has a big challenge in front of him. He made St Petersburg win and, if he makes Arsenal win, he’ll become an all-time great.
“That’s the real challenge he faces and I am convinced he has all the potential to do it. He’s a leader and a character.
“He has something specific to him that he uses well – a low centre of gravity, great pace and tricky dribble.
“He uses all that he has in the locker in an intelligent way – and don’t forget he is a winner as well.
I feel like I’ve just opened a shoe box in Arshavin’s house and uncovered his secret love letters! Still, it’s nice to see the coach dishing out deserved praise. I think he might have given Arsh a stern talking to after his dismal early season performances. He looked a different player last week, now he needs to show consistency and desire for the rest of the season!
We take on a filthy incarnation of Bolton tomorrow, so I expect loads of anti football, loads of bad challenges and an Arsenal win. I just want to once again thank the people at ESPN for runining my Sunday. I really love early kick offs. I can’t have a proper beer, I can’t really do anything with my day afterwards and I also love missing my Sunday league match. Many thanks…
Anyway, sorry for the brief post, I might do another one later! Happy Saturday!
