Does Wenger get Henry on loan this winter?
Last January, Wenger did something extraordinary for Arsenal by bringing back one of his finest pieces of work in Thierry Henry. It was a mesmeric return for the Frenchman who netted in his first appearance of his loan spell against Leeds in typical fashion. He then managed to net the winner against Sunderland who were on fine form at the time. He did everything asked of him in a humble fashion. You could see that he loved every moment at the club. The big question is, would Wenger do it all again?
In my opinion, it’s a yes. We unfortunately only have one conventional striker that we can rely on, Olivier Giroud. I know we have Chamakh but I’ve completely given up on him. He just seems to have lost the edge he once had and I can’t see him ever having a positive impact for Arsenal ever again. Some say that Theo can play through the middle. This by and large is true if used in a counter-attacking team. We are not that by any stretch of the imagination and hence, I could see him struggling to have any sort of impact.
Bringing in Henry could really benefit us with a tight fixture list hopefully including both Capital One Cup matches as well as FA cup matches. Giroud will need to be rested for the league and Champions League games. His experience as well as knowledge could really help Giroud (who is a big admirer of him) settle into the club and adapt to the Premier League.
Henry brings so much to the club. Memories, experience, knowledge, class etc. Everyone would love him back at the club for a 3rd time and it seems like a no brainer for the club both commercially and for footballing reasons to bring the French Legend back to Arsenal.
Surely he is being groomed to take over as Arsenal manager one day…..
