Thierry Henry is leaving Arsenal Football Club!

Having been a fan of Arsenal for over 30 years, it came as a great surprise to me to learn yesterday of the sudden decision to allow the club's captain and greatest ever goal-scorer, Thierry Henry, to leave so that he can join arch-European rivals Barcelona. The main reason this news surprised me was that only last year Thierry pledged the rest of his career to Arsenal. An interesting new definition of the word "pledge", that's for sure.

It's particularly sad news for me (and all other Arsenal fans I'm sure), because Thierry has truly graced the sport here in England with his amazing footballing skills and gentlemanly conduct for eight seasons now. He has been a joy to watch, and is one of the greatest players ever, of that there can be no doubt. I am so sorry to see him go. I would just like to say a huge thank you to Thierry for all the wonderful memories he has left me with. I wish him and his family all the very best with the new venture.

I hope the Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, knows what he is doing. It seems to me to be a very risky decision to let Thierry leave. But I'll keep faith with the boss, for now anyway...

Ratatouille, and other Disney/Pixar movies

The pending release of Disney/Pixar's newest movie, "Ratatouille (rat-a-too-ee)" is something I am really looking forward to. Like a great many people all over the world, I love all the Pixar movies to date - "Toy Story" (1995), "A Bug's Life" (1998), "Toy Story 2" (1999), "Monsters Inc." (2001), "Finding Nemo" (2003), "The Incredibles" (2004) and "Cars" (2006) - but from what I have seen of the official trailers, this latest offering looks to be their best one yet.
