I always felt that Arsenal lost a step when Patrick Viera was traded to Juventus last summer. And this shows in their struggles in the EPL. The Gunners have fallen out of the top three positions and are in danger of not making the cut for next season Champions League. That is why today's match is so critical to their chances. It also features a match up between Viera and Thierry Henry, the Arsenal striker, a close friend and now a rival.
Viera looks back on the nine seasons that he played at Highbury and his friendship with Henry; the duo that is to be reunited for France's campaign in this World Cup and on whom France is relying on to erase the bitter memories of their disastrous outing in WC 2002.
