A random question for a lazy summer Friday: does speed matter in the EPL? I watched some of Arsenal-Middlesborough on FSC last night. Henry's brilliance never ceases to amaze me, but the more I see him the more I think his brilliance is due to his skill, strength, timing, composure, ball control, etc rather than his speed. I know he's fast, but if he were a step slower I'm not sure he'd have any less success. Or if my buddy Shrek were a step faster and lost a few chins, I'm not sure he'd improve. Thoughts/opinions/criticisms for asking such a dumb question?
