Henry did leave because he wanted to compete for titles now rather than later and he lost faith in the way AFC went about 'building' their its team/future.
Stop kidding yourself this Arsenal team is good to challenge for the title when one or two changes are made and Im preety sure Wenger knows that. That guys knows more about football than all this message board combined with the ManU and Chelsea boards so lets give him a chance to make his mistake which he has earned. Wenger will never leave because of the artistic license and non-medling of the Arsenal board. These current problems are inevitable amidst a takeover....remember what ManU went through. Anyway to conclude Henry did not leave because Arsenal where not challenging for trophies end off lets get that straight. He is a legend and will forever be remembered but his performances were partly to blame for our slump. I personally hold him responsible (except the ref of course) for losing us the chance to win the champions league against Barca. It made sense for him to move on becoz soon Wenger was thinking of giving him one year contracts as per his policy. His attitude at times did not help bring the best of upcoming strikers like Ade, RVP. Reyes got it worse from him no wonder he felt home sick. There it is I have said it. The hard truth. Having said that we will miss goals such as the one against Blackburn at Ewood Park last year.... but then again RVP. We are indebted to him. Thank you Henry
