OK maybe its not a fox in the box but... If I try to imagine us with out Henry I do not see a proven goal scorer. Maybe we have a lot of guys who have the talent to score and who have had little goal scoring runs but I dont see a consistent threat. Reyes does not impress me in the goal scoring department and Van Persie is not a consistent threat unless he gets regular first team play and a lot of ball contact.
I look at other big clubs and I see more threats. If Ruud at Man U does not score or play Rooney is a real threat, at Barca you have Eto and Ronaldinho at Chelsea regular scorers are Drogba, Chevshenko, Lampard, Crespo all double diget scorers. Besides Henry who do we have that will worry teams. When Hnery is rested or injured the other goal scorers will also loose the advantage of defensive distraction because of Henry's presence.
Maybe Torres would have been good, who knows or a Bellamy type of player (dont like his atitude for us though) but help me out and show me how we will compete with the other big teams in the goal scoring department with Henry out (or haveing a poor season because of burn out)?
I am worried! Something tells me we need to give Henry a little help he can't carry us all the time.
