Alot of it must be due to what Wenger knows: Henry, Petit and Grimandi played under him at Monaco.Boskoborgh said:does anyone understand the reason why there play so much French players

khimik said:It can be summed up in the following categories:
- Rival fans from within England which is understandable
- We've always been disliked
- Xenophobia/Anti-French thing
- Calcio100 and his bullshit
- We're supposedly very arrogant and everyone hates arrogant people
- Thierry Henry being disliked for eating the wrong breakfast
That about covers it.

even if henry was mexican, or american, or even chinese. he'd still be at arsenal.
wenger looks for skill first, and whatever their nationality is, is just coincidence.
He played on the wing because that is where he was utilised by the Monaco management, Just like Ashley Cole was a striker then Wenger transformed him into arguably the world's best LB.bokiko said:by the way ... he used to play as a winger because he is only FAST !
and he was staying on the line
Yes, he's fast. Majority of the players at Arsenal are quick sprinters, they were bought because they're fast. It's how we play. Henry also has a midas touch, quick feet with the ball, excellent vision and clinical shooting.bokiko said:by the way ... he used to play as a winger because he is only FAST !
