Henry's signing is slowly sliding into Overmars/Petit territory.

We need to get a better feeder club than Arsenal. Their players just aren't cutting it for us.

Dare I say that Henry reminded me of Kluivert today. He had so many opportunities today and didn't make any of those into a shot on goal. Terrible game by him today.

1. What does that have to do with his technique or his finishing.

3. What does that have to do with, anything really. France aren't Arsenal either regardless of the frequent puns, he seems to do alright with them.

I agree with you on Points 1,2 and 3... I just don't understand how come he is playing so shite more often than not :(

i like this "give him respect" stuff :)

he has respect, and fame, and fortune

someone said Barca's game is too slow for him.... it has now become my greatest fear to see what Henry will do if Barca speed the game up. Yesterday he couldnt control the simplest slowest of balls to his feet.

he's reduced to a great finisher now... he should sit his ass in the box and await service

I hate this type of comments. What does that mean? That we shouldn't criticize him for shocking lack of simple ball control? Or for his lackadaisical play of yesterday?

If he plays like crap, and worse, shows no effort, then he should be criticized. Plain and simple.

And for Barcelona may not be playing as fast as they used to, but one of the slowest is Henry himself. Shocking lack of speed.

Why does he punt the ball a ways in front when he just can't get back to it? The defender just mops it up or clears it for a corner every time. Am I the only that's bothered by this.

If you've watched him in Arsenal, that's how he used to beat defenders. Saddly for him, defenders in spain are not willing to play a foot race with , rather play smartly and have another defender go collect the ball.

Ironically I was alluding to when he does it versus one defender and loses the footrace.
