Football365‘s John Nicholson can always be relied on for a good read, so it probably wasn’t the biggest surprise that he turned out to be the only journalist who wasn’t swinging from Thierry Henry’s bollocks. Nicholson maintains a similar view of the whole situation as most neutral fans – that it is absurd that everyone is suggesting we should feel fortunate and grateful toward the Arsenal striker for choosing to bless us with his presence.
The pick of his quotes from last week was: “My team showed me I didn’t have to leave. They showed me they had heart. Everything was up in the air for a very long time. But at the end of the day, the team raised their game,”
It wouldn’t be surprising in the least if the other Arsenal players are feeling a bit f*cked off at the notion that they finally proved to the Him that they are worthy of sharing the same pitch.
