    Sounds like Glenn Hoddle during his time as England manager :lol:

    It's very different to become a legend as a player were you are in control of everything versus telling others something and not being in control of their situation. He learnt it the hard way.

    Also let’s not forget that Vieira is far more modest and humble than Titi ever was.

    Henry never had a go @ Bergkamp. Not his fault he had standards.

    To be honest you could always see it in his Arsenal days. He was arrogant and cocky Ashley Cole said something about him after he left to go to Chelsea how he had immense power at Arsenal he could tell Wenger what teams to pick and suggest signings to the board. He was really clicky with the French players and outcasted others..

    The season where he was sold to Barcelona 90% of the squad was happy to see the back of him

    Nothing wrong with difficult or edgy personalities. If anything, problem with modern football is maybe some players are happy to coast along.

    The amount of hatred in this thread for one of our greatest players is like going to the living room and defaecating a giant turd in front of the whole family.

    I was proud to watch him play for the Arsenal. If we had a couple of players of his calibre in our team now we wouldn't be playing BATE Borisov and Red Star Shtigrad.

    I thought Ashley was on about it under Gallas’ captaincy. Like 80% of the dressing room spoke French at that point which was jokes.

    I remember there was a crossbar challenge vid that came out that looked very cliquey.

    I guy I know used to be a scholar at Arsenal in the golden days. He said that Henry was very alouf with the youngers in the canteen during meals and would not speak with them. Vieira on the other hand was very approachable and tried to mentor the young ones. Shows already who would make a better coach and manager.

    Almunia won. How Wenger didn't take that as a sign, I have no idea.

    Almunia won and they still presented his trophy in French! "When in Rome" not, pretend your still in France! Almunia like a pro, replied in English!

    Good old days though, that team was competing for the title even if we ****ed up after Eduardo's injury.

    And then he proved he wasn't by missing the goal completely :lol:

    To be fair though no one is criticising Henry the footballer, you can be our best ever player and still be a dick, not saying he is, I genuinely don't really care nor follow what he does these days.

    On that note, I never got the impression Henry would make a good manager.

    Semantics. The footballer and the person and the manager are one and the same.

    I can understand not following what an ex-player does, I don't follow them much myself, but some people are acting like trolls and questioning not just his aptitude for being a manager but his attitude as a player when he was with us. Ignoring how much his contributions improved our team.

    Not really. One was good, the other terrible.

    Just because you're good at something, doesn't make you a leader in that field.

    Apparently he’s about to be named the manager of Redbull NY. I wish him all the best.
