A couple of points have come out of the ‘Henry to Barca` headline cropping up everywhere this morning. The first is the impact it could have on Newcastle getting into the top four. Sam, Ashley and Shepherd must smell blood here. Arsenal without Henry looked a pale shadow of their former selves last season. Some shrewd investment and padding out of the squad with quality in the right areas could really see the club make a bolt for the Champions League places. This could be heightened should Wenger nick off now his two main allies at the club have gone (Dein and Terry H).

Secondly is the detrimental impact it could have on Newcastle. Already The Guardian is speculating that Martins and Owen are on the hitlist as strikers for Wenger to replace Le Frenchman with. Due to Shepherd`s complete idiocy in placing release clauses in their contracts this could very quickly become a reality. Cheers Fred.
