'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Arsenal Can't Reach Utd Heights

It was heartbreak for the Gunners last night, as they still cannot match the big boys of the Premiership and claim the Champions League.

They lost to Barcelona in Paris 2-1, and now seem to be struggling to keep hold of their club skipper Thierry Henry.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has accused Henry of keeping the club 'dangling on a string' as he ponders whether to stay or go.

The France striker is again tipped to be signing for new European champions Barcelona, but would Chelsea or United be in the hunt if he DID leave the Gunners?

Wright told LBC News 1152AM: 'You know the new stadium that they're building down there is going to be great and I can see how the Arsenal board must be feeling, especially having somebody like Thierry Henry literally dangling you on a string.

'To bring world-class players to the club now you need people like Thierry to attract them there. Now if he's not going to be there, then why would people want to come?'
