Henry Stays

Despite valid concerns that he goes missing at key moments, and that he's not the best choice of captain, his statement of intent to stay is very positive news for Arsenal. He's is and is regarded as world class. Having this out of the way I predict will encourage a team that's got a fight on their hands to get the important European place, continue progress in the CL and the domestic cups and attract the best players to Arsenal. Obviously the next step is to get a strong central midfielder who will boss the game like Vieira did pre-'04.


  • Aye! This is great news and he sounds like he means it - none of this I will decide later stuff - he clearly will hold us to ransom but he cant be blamed for getting his market value in wages - he is world class and this may spur us on for the second half of the league - and may convince Pires to play a bit harder than he has at times. Very very good news this as an Arsenal fan.

  • That certainly is good news for the club. With regards to Pires, I think Arsenal should reevaluate their policy of only offering those over 30 one year extensions. If Arsenal would commit to Pires for a few more years he might try harder for the cause.

  • Trade Pires for Henrick Larsen's final hurrah if Le Bob won't go to a year to year option.
