This headline blows, but I didn't have time to think up anything lovely and creative.

They're bringing back a legend, like Michael Jordan. The other players mentioned were some of Arsenal's best defenders from the last decade, which the current team is sorely lacking.

Thierry Henry is one of the greatest players in the history of the Premier League, and could flat ass score. Those five guys formed what was called the Famous Back Four back when Arsenal had a pretty salty defense. They were even mentioned in the Full Monty. Arsenal currently has 1 person who can score, and roughly 1.25 defenders that are worth a shiat still healthy.

Fark has regular Premier League threads on the sports tab, feel free to come check them out, almost all of them are green when the games are live. The group is pretty inclusive. You just gotta pick a team if you don't have one already.
