Thierry Henry demands new signings at Arsenal

Does he indeed? The cheeky sod. It’s a sad sign of the shift in power in football when a top player feels free to go to the national press – The Sun, in this case – and demand his manager makes some new signings. I respect Thierry Henry, but this outburst serves only to undermine the authority of Arsene Wenger.

Imagine Brian Clough’s reaction if Trevor Francis had done the same thing at Nottm Forest. Clough wouldn’t have stood for it (he’d have hit Francis, I imagine, and then sold him) – of course, 25 years ago managers held all the power and players wouldn’t dream of telling them who they should sign. Which is how it should be.
