What should Domenech do about Thierry Henry?

The former Gunner is clearly in the twilight of an illustrious career, unfortunately that twilight falls in a World Cup year, where he is the captain of his national side but does not seem to be in Barcelona's plans anymore. Doubtful he will see the pitch in the return Champions League tie versus Inter. His playing time has been limited, putting it kindly. So what should the genius Domenech do about Henry? Titi clearly wants to play in South Africa, who would not....other than a Paul Scholes....but it is not clear if he deserves to start or where on the pitch he should feature. Based on current form, Malouda might have the strongest case for holding up the left flank for Les Bleus and Ribery is starting to get his legs back.

So what to do with Titi? Play him up front? Then where does Anelka slot? If you go by what Domenech has been saying than Henry might not even be on the plane to South Africa, but we all know that is not going to happen. So instead we have a major headache with a few months to go to the World Cup - bringing Henry, potentially costing a player like Malouda playing time and seeing if Domenech can get Henry into game shape on his own....hmmmm recipe for disaster.
