Thierry Henry as Arsenal manager - dream or nightmare?
Although the idea of seeing Henry walk out from the tunnel wearing that zip jacket and taking his place on the manager's seat, I can't help but wonder about this whole dream state and what impact it might have on the club. The problem is that we still don't know what this squad is truly capable of. I see three scenarios:
Wenger is under-performing and the squad is better than what Wenger manages to get out of them. No problem there, as long as Thierry Henry is more suited for the modern game, he'll do fine.
Wenger is performing to the quality of the squad. If this is the case, Henry now needs to match Wenger in skill and experience to keep Arsenal on course.
Wenger is over-performing and the squad is actually much worse than we think. If this is the case, Henry has little chance to match Wenger's performance.
My worry is that only #1 will give Henry success. The other two scenarios will most likely result in Henry worsening Arsenal, at least in the short term. Besides, we know nothing of Henry's managerial skills, he hasn't exactly given any Gary Neville-level insight into tactical analysis as a pundit (yet?).
What do you guys think? Would Henry managing Arsenal be a dream or a potential nightmare? Little bit of both?
