In his new job as a TV pundit for Sky Sports, the former Arsenal and France international forward Thierry Henry has got to at least try to keep his bias in check, as the likes of Gary Neville and the hordes of ex Liverpool players do with varying degrees of success. Everyone knows which teams these different commentators have a preference for but they still have to do their best to see things objectively.
There have been a few articles in the football media in recent days about who will be the manager to take over the reins of Arsenal when Arsene Wenger does call it a day, or get sacked which seems about as likely as U2 sacking Bono as the lead singer.
Arsenal may have been generally expected to win their Premier League game at Watford on Saturday, even though the Gunners were playing away from home, and with some concern about the match fitness of star man Alexis Sanchez after his late return from international duty with Chile.
There is not a lot of Arsenal news around during the international break, but we should take a little time to welcome back a former “King of Highbury”, Liam Brady. He left our very successful academy set-up a few years ago, but he is now being brought back as an ambassador for the club, which is befitting for one of our greatest ever players.
All Arsenal fans could dream of having a team of players that played with the energy and confidence of our star man Alexis Sanchez, but even if we had two of him up front that would make us into formidable opponents for any team in the world.
