The first trophy is to finish in the top four. And that’s still possible. I believe finishing fourth is vital for us, so let’s focus on that.
~Arsene Wenger, 19 February 2012
I don’t know if Arsenal fans agree, but the reality of the modern game confirms Arsene Wenger’s statements. However, he is slightly mistaken. A top four finish is a financial trophy but not a piece of history and glory.
I am a competitor and that will never leave my body.

The King of Arsenal marked his return with a game-winning goal and a magic moment for the Arsenal faithful. He also told fans that he is not the 25 year old that they knew but he could still teach his teammates how to win. More on the return of Henry here.
He does get away with murder. Every long ball that comes down, he looks at the player, gets his arm up and fouls the centre-half but he does it in a way that they don’t give it so it’s obviously within the laws of the game. It’s disappointing.
