Who knows? Worse things happen at sea.
So, Henrikh has signed and much of Goonerdom is happy to have shifted the misplaced pass, dog botherering money-grabber. We will miss the goals of the Chilean but if PEA signs and Micki can recover his Dortmund form, things could turn out rather well.
Where will Henrikh play, you ask. Well, I’d have a guess at left-side floating much as the mercenary he is replacing. If you’re good enough, we all know that Big Weng will tell him he can play wherever the hell he likes. The mix and match attacking options we might have come February are mouth-watering.
Yep, we could probably do with an invisible shield, Gilberto-style, to counter the potential wealth of creative genius but we all know that is most unlikely, in the short term at least.
I know very little about our shiny new Armenian. His father was called Hamlet and scored a fair number of goals in his career tragically cut short at the age of 33, much like our beloved Rocky. Micki used his father’s career as motivation to be the very best he possibly could be. From war-torn Armenia, Henrikh always loved the creative players, such as Zidane and Kaka, the most.
Let’s hope he really can re-start his career with us and become an Arsenal legend.
