The Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has finally been given a job by the Gunners as a youth team coach just a few months after retiring from football with MLS side New York Red Bulls, and he has been welcomed by all Arsenal fans from Arsene Wenger downwards.

We heard the other day that Joel Campbell should be playing for Arsenal next season, but that statement came from the young striker’s father so you could be forgiven for assuming a little touch of bias in his opinion.

The Arsenal winger Theo Walcott may only be 23 years old, but amazingly the win over Sunderland this weekend was his 250th game for the Gunners.

David Dein was an integral figure in the rise to dominance of Arsenal in the last 30 years.
