Henry to Barcelona!

Recommended Posts

Hopefully I am not the only soccer nerd here??

This is equal to Tim Duncan being traded to the Mavs for cash.

 

Great news for Liverpool. :D

 

 

I'm not a soccer basher by any means. I enjoy the game even though I have never played it. That said there is no way Tim Duncan would be traded for cash and that's why it's not equivalent to anything in the NBA, NFL, MLB, etc... This type of stuff happens in soccer.

 

Henry is a great player, I remember him from the WC so I can see why the team who received him would be pumped but why would a team trade their star player for cash? Because their broke?

Well you can not really compare european football to the NFL or NBA. The closest thing it compares to is the MLB. There is no salary cap in euro football. So I guess a better example I should have used is when the Rangers traded ARod to the Yankees. Instead of getting Soriano back who they knew they would not resign they could have got back say 50 million. The cash goes towards other players. Arsenal (Henry's old team) will use the transfer fee on some good players, just not the caliber of Henry.

that is very big news in the Soccer world ( by the way you are not the only soccer nerd ...my favorite team by far is AC Milan ) ...Barcelona did not like the way Real Madrid won the spanish league and clearly want to upgrade which they just did with Henry

No reason to wear the Arsenal jersey ever again.

Fernando Torres might have something to say about that. He just signed for 6 years. Liverpool just filled the only glaring weakness they have. Since Owen left they have not had a dominant striker.

Look like very late to post, but great to hear that French striker Thierry Henry has completed his £16.1m move from Arsenal to Spanish club Barcelona according to blamefootball reports.
