There maybe an injury but everything I read suggests its mental. Wenger has cracked and basically kicked him out and I think would have been just as happy not to see him at the Emirates this weekend but he showed up. I think Henry is the greatest player we have ever had but Henry must remember that an 80% Henry isnt enough even it has garnered 7 goals. 100% Henry would have had 12 goals. Footballers often have egos and last year put us all through the ringer (like Vieira did twice) and then stayed - but there is no point in staying and then thinking all he has to do is turn up.
Fergie kicked out Ruud and Roy because thats what it came to and in both cases did the right thing. I dont want this to happen to Henry but Wenger has to change things and that's what he is doing now - man management. "You can sod off for 6 weeks Henry and I wont pick you because you are not bigger than the club". I hope it works otherwise we will be collecting 25 million for him this Summer.
Henry should NEVER have been made captain, I said that at the time and I stand by it - he is someone the team should be built around yes, but not the fella to lead it. I am not saying sell Henry by any means but I do welcome Wenger letting Henry know that he has to fight for his place. Its going to be a very interesting month for us - not to mention an interesting week with Porto away and then Chelsea...
