    SILVESTRI: I'd Rather Have Henry

    Mikael Silvestre has admitted he reckons Manchester United would have a better chance of winning the Premiership title with Thierry Henry in the side rather than Ruud van Nistelrooy.

    Asked if he had a preference between Van Nistelrooy and his fellow Frenchman, Silvestre revealed: "I would take Henry because he is a lot faster.

    "That is very important in English football and Henry also gives a team more attacking options."

    Silvestre, who recently signed a new four-year deal at the club, also claimed United have to make new signings if they are to reclaim their pre-eminence in English football.

    "At the moment there is not enough strength in depth and I feel we need some more players," he told the Daily Star. "We are too short in some areas of the team. For example, we have only three strikers - Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Diego Forlan.

    "On the left side of defence I am the only left-footed player and it is the same with Gary Neville on the right."


    LOL :D

    Yes id rather have a player that didnt score as many goals as Ruud did last year, and hasnt scored as many goals as Ruud has THIS year either.
    If we take this to its logical conclusion, we might as well chop Ruud in for Angel and not score any goals at all.:p

    Jazz mate do you never give up ?

    We have had this argument about before. All Arsenal Fans wanted Henry All Man Utd fans wanted RVN and the neutrals wanted Henry.

    We all have our reasons for this and this will just start off another flame. The other thing you have to respect and realise RVN had that amazing season last year coming straight off the back of a 12 month plus lay off from a severe knee injury which to me makse it more impressive.

    I feel we have yet to see the best from either of these two players who are undoubetdly great at the roles they occupy for there clubs.

    Is this old chestnut still going?

    Ruud fits better in a Man Utd team, Henry looks class compared to the rest of Arsenal. Game over, discussion ended, topic finished.

    only one man utd player gilly and it is only his opinion same as MrChrispy has his opinion and you and everyone else does as well.

    "Ruud fits better in a Man Utd team, Henry looks class compared to the rest of Arsenal. Game over, discussion ended, topic finished."

    I agree completely. Arsenal are to mea two man team, without Vieira and Henry they are an average premier league team.

    I thought the same as you obviously do :D

    --

    Memph.. I didn't take umbridge with the fact that he disagrees with me. Only that he discounts everyone else's opinion by saying 'Game over, discussion ended, topic finished. '

    It aint game over, it aint discussion ended and it certainly aint topic finished. By saying this he has said that his opinion is right, whereas all other opinions are wrong.

    What about all those neutrals, which includes me, that choose Henry over Kneestillsore? Why would the neutrals all choose one if he wasn't a better player?

    It's all by-the-by now anyway. Over the last two games jamie Milner has a better strike rate :D

    er no I dont I forgot Pires.


    ok gilly I read it a different way just thought he meant from his point of view game over topic ended etc. Plus I thought he was being pretty accurate in what he said.

    I Guess its all down to interpretation.

    memphisto, i was just replying to atpbx's comments

    last yr ljundberg scored all the important goals maybe we rely on him as well

    bergkamp made a huge contribution with all his assists last yr so we rely on him

    u remember pires as well now.

    damn we now rely on 5 players

    u see even though henry scores most of our goals he isnt our only goal scorer, when rvn is playing bad man utd look average coz there is no one their to score their goals

    u take zidane out of real madrid and they are not the same

    u see every team has their best players, to say they are a 2 man team is silly coz arsenal play as a team not individuals this is what makes us better than the rest.

    really?

    bergkamp had 11 assists last yr, pires had 15, he is one our most important players any arsenal fan will tell ya, ljundberg scores in quite a few games and if hadnt been around we would dropped alot of points towards the end,

    i dont rate keane but if u ask a man yoo fan they will tell u he is great, i dont think he is all that tbh, but to man yoo he is very important

    u beat us on a bad day thats all good, but u had 3 or 4 first teamers out (rio, beckham and keane) hardly ur reserve team, u might of won the battle but im afraid ur loosing the war

    i saw ur comments before btw :p

    remember a team has a defense which as important as ur attack, campbell had a good season, ashley cole was brilliant on the left, and lauren and keown are both looking decent as well

    no doubt the gunners have a really good side with alot of top quality players but like i said I really do think you rely heavily upon Henry and Vieira.

    We used to rely on Keane, Becks, Scholes and Gigs too much in my view and in some ways we still do but In my view with Veron turning the corner Butt Playing well (before injury) both the nevilles to some extent beinning to come through a bit more I just think we have at the moment are slightly stronger and could handle injuries (like we have had to) slightly better than Arsenal.

    By this I mean if Henry and Vieira were both injured and out for say 3 games each at the same time as opposed to say RVN and BEcks we could handle it a bit better.

    But both teams are undoubetdly great in there own right and it is blatantly going to be down to personal preference which and who each fan prefers.

    I hope Liverpool win tommorrow though as then I think it would be a more open and interesting Title race not only with us catching up a bit but also that chelsea and pool would be in a better situation.

    As a neutral Southampton supporter I would have to say I would love to have Henry. I wouldn't however be so keen on having Ruud. Mainly because Ruud never really makes his own chances, whereas Henry can. Van Nistelrooy should score as many goals as he does because he has enough chances.....and it does seem like he is missing most of them nowadays doesnt it :D I can't even remember the last time he scored!!

    Also as a neutral I belive that Keane is poo and Man United can play better without him. Veron is your best player in midfield with Beckham and Scholes. Without them you would be nothing, in the same way that someone said that Arsenal would be nothing without Henry or Vieira. Like someone else said, every team in the world has players that they severely miss when they don't play, so saying that Arsenal are a 2 man team is ridiculous.

    Besides, there is no way that Arsenal are going to be stopped on the way to another premiership title this year until Southampton visit Highbury hehe :p
