When Milan's favourite son, Shevchenko left them, it was one of the most shocking news on the planet. People who are considered the most loyal of them all in the football world. Thierry Henry is the son of Arsenal, as much as Raul is to Real Madrid. They will never leave the club. That's the old belief. Nowadays, the most loyal player leaves too. It is therefore no longer shocking to see Henry moving to Barcelona.

After seasons of speculation, it is finally confirmed? With Henry in the starting line-up with Messi, Ronaldinho and Eto'o, Barcelona are starting their very own fantasy team era. Real Madrid have that when Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo were around. It was the greatest dream of any football fan to watch the most fantasy line-up at that time. You can only do that in the games! Now, if all players are injury free and are in good form, Barcelona will be a scary club in offense next season! They have all the firepower they need!

Will Wenger leave too? I heard there are links of him with Real Madrid. I have never in my mind think of him taking over Real Madrid because he is the untouchables of Arsenal. Deep inside me, I still want Capello to stay on.

William Hill have given odds of 3/1 that Wenger will still be at Arsenal in a years time, while offer 9/4 that his destination will be Real Madrid. Also on the books are 7/1 Barcelona; 10/1 England manager and 12/1 manager of France.

While his replacement has been priced up as follows:
6/1 Phil Scolari; 7/1 Hiddink; 8/1 Capello; 10/1 Lippi; 12/1 Erikkson; 14/1 Rijkaard, O'Neill, Van Gaal; 20 Mourinho.

Will Arsenal sign some or at least one good striker when Henry departs? They may need to wait longer to win anything if there are no more matured players in Arsenal. Arsenal still have two great players in Fabregas and van Persie. Barcelona on the other hand will make La Liga more attractive with his signing. Interestingly enough, two of the Premiership's top scorers of the past few seasons are in La Liga.
