Henry – I can’t understand the abuse we got from Arsenal fans

The returning hero Thierry Henry was the subject of adulation and hero worship after scoring the winner on his latest Arsenal debut against Leeds last Monday, but he saw red after seeing the other side of the coin when the Gunners got beat at Swansea.

He admits he over-reacted when he heard the abuse being aimed at Arsenal players from their own fans, and has decided to make a public apology and to try and explain his reaction.

Henry said: “I was really shocked and disappointed on Sunday – and not just at the result.

Nicklas Bendtner: “My judgement has been less than perfect recently”

The on-loan Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has been quickly losing respect for his childish actions and outbursts over the last six months, which has culminated in his arrest for alleged criminal damage and exposure on the front pages after an “arrogant” display at a pizza restaurant after a night out.

It seems that somebody has tried to get some sense into his thick head and he has attempted to atone for his errors by issuing a grovelling apology to Sunderland fans.
