I hope Henry is not leaving

Update: It’s confirmed – and the twist is that Henry says he’s leaving because Wenger won’t be extended his contract beyond 2008 at Arsenal.

Cue doomsday calls from the media. Arsenal will survive though, and it’ll be interested to see who comes in this summer (and the next, if Wenger is really to go).


We’ve been talking about it for an year now, but when I read the headlines 20 minutes ago it felt like a punch to the gut – surely Henry would not turn his back on Arsenal, and surely Wenger would not have sanctioned such a move?

The newswires are flooded with the story, so kudos to the Spanish radio guys (Cadena Ser radio) who announced this story in Spain a while back, for either breaking the second big transfer story of the summer (first one was the double-signing of Nani and Anderson by United) or for creating a senseless wildfire that will only hurt the clubs (credibility for the media is already long gone).

Will update this tomorrow morning with the latest (see comments till then), but here’s to hoping that this is bullshit.
